3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve been anxiously awaiting this ones arrival. Pours a deep amber red/brown. Spicy cinnamon aroma. Flavour is also quite spicy with notes of cinnamon and bread. I’m drinking one now, and still searching for the Pumpkin flavour however. Aside from not really living up to it’s name, I got no complaints. Good stuff.

Bière légère brune avec un léger collet.
Un goût sucré à la cannelle (pas désagréable).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at our LCBO pumpkin ale tasting- 6 oz sample- Pours a deep and dark amber/copper with a red hue. The head was initially frothy, but it quickly went down to a thin ring. Quite spicy on the nose, nutmeg, cinnamon,a bit of cardamon, with lots of bready malts, and a bit of pumpkin. The flavour profile is sweet bready malts,caramel, some spices including nutmeg and cardamon. This pumpkin ale finishes out a bit thin and watery, but with a nice bitterness as well. Overall, the aroma is much more interesting when compared to the flavour. Still a nice treat.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and some nutmeg, it really smells like i just stuck my nose in a can of pumpkin pie mix. Flavor is a little more subtle, and delicate, just traces of those previous spices, a touch of malt in the end. A nice offering, but a little thin in the flavor category.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle - pours a gorgeous mahogany copper with a slightly fizzy that vanishes rather quickly. Aroma very nice - the ginger comes through, and the cinnamon as well. Very pumpkin-y, but unique too. Flavour quite sweet, cinnamon upfront then blending with the other spices. Nice and full in the mouth. Maybe a bit too sweet. Beautiful beer for autumn.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pour is super fizzy with a cola like head. Dark orange. Aroma has a good bit of pumpkin and pie crust, though not too spicy. Mellow flavor, a bit spritzy but thin bodied, light pumpkin sweetness in the finish. Has a bit of slate flavor to it, but overall not too bad. Messy, vegetal finish. Bearable.

pours ruby brown with a skin of white. strong clove nose. cinnamon is apparent also with a sweetness. tastes better than walt looksbut not as good as a sweaty embrace from lump. allspice or nutmeg is really strong at first with a minty clove finish. nice caramel slightly wheaty backbone flavor i’d love to try this beer without the spice, but a bit more ascertive hop. could be a good session. a nice spice beer that i’d happily drink again. thanks, paul.

341 ml bottle, Medium head with a brown color. Spicy and sweet (cinnamon),tho the pumpkin wasn’t present enough to satify my need for a pumpin beer. Still, it goes down easy. Don’t drink too cold.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Darker brown with a orange tinge. Decent sized faint tan head. Aroma is strong of gingerbread, nutmeg cinnamon, clove and allspice. Flavour is rich with a pumpkin pie taste with the ginger, clove and nutmeg very noticeable. One of the richer, well balanced pumpkin ales.

Bouteille brune de 341 ml. Arômes puissants d’épices (cannelle, muscade, girofle et gingembre). Elle sent vraiment la tarte à la citrouille. Robe rousse, peu d’effervescence. Épicée en bouche, la base maltée est cependant relativement faible. Très peu d’arrière-goût. De mémoire, cette bière était meilleure lorsque très récemment brassée.
