COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with victory malt and has a less pronounced hop profile that allows the spices to come to the fore and contributes to a harmonious, balanced brew. September to December.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2007
Dark copper with a trace of a head. Not much aroma. The spicy pumpkin really starts to come through in the finish. Different, but not bad.

marcbé (86) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2007
Dark orange color, almost no foam. Smell of cinnamon, bubble gum, nutmeg and coke. Very spicy taste with a shy malt in the end. Not bad.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Mr.V: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention. Aroma of canella and nutmeg and nutmeg is quite intense. Taste is also dominated by some canella and nutmeg as well as some light cloves notes (I could not notice any ginger even thought label mention it as one ingredient). Body is about average with some average carbonation. I don’t remember the previous version that was brewed years ago to contain that much spices but this was quite enjoyable nonetheless.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2007
Clear brown / ruby poor with a thin off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, candy apple and wood mulch. Definite taste of pumpkin pie but with alot less sweet. Very nice balance and just enough spices. Lightly effervescent. Caramel malts, nutmeg, cloves completes the flavors.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
Sweet and spicy aroma. Clear tan-golden colour with low but lasting white head. Biscuity malt flavour shines through the spicy flavour with low bitterness. Light, dry body with decent carbonation. Bottle. Entered from notes.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 2009-10-01. Dark amber brown body, modest beige head. 3+ Aroma is quite spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg/clove, and a food smell I can not quite place. 7+ Flavour is similar, pleasant spice melange, sweet mild malt base. 7+ Smooth average palate. Pleasant. 7/3/7/3/15+ 3.5 Bottle at C’est What

2008-10-XX. Dark amber brown body with a small off white head. Spicy aroma, prominent nutmeg. ( 7+ ) Sweet base, spice throughout, nutmeg is also prominent in the flavour and lingers pleasantly in the finish. Smooth medium bodied palate. ( 3+ ) Rather nice, I look forward to getting some more. 7+/3/7/3/15 - 3.5 Bottle at C’est What

July 2003. Orangey copper with a pumpkin pie aroma. Leans more towards the pumpkin pie spices than pumpkin itself. Very enjoyable. Will try it again. 6/3/6/3/14 - 3.2

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2002
Malty and spicey, ruby, slim head. Seems to have little pumpkin flavour. Nice mouthfeel from the spices, fair.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 16, 2002
So it does smell like pumpkin. Is that bad or good? Look seemed to be a bit wash out. Very average quality yet very different

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2002
Orange-Copper colour w/ good head. Spicy aroma (cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg). Medium bodied. Spices come through nicely in the flavour. Lovely, smooth malt background. A well-balanced beer.
