Best pumpkin beer without a doubt. Dark brown in color, very aromatic with hints of pumpkin and spices. Natural in flavour, tastes like eating a slice of pumpkin pie. Pairs so well(obviously) with any pumpkin dessert. Get it before its gone!

Speedy_Charly (31) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Bouteille de 341ml chez Marché des Brasseurs - Brassin annuel 2014. Robe d’ambre orangé trouble et coiffée d’une mince mousse d’un blanc/beige. Arôme d’épices-gingembre, muscade et citrouille qui rappele un peu la tarte si populaire en automne. En bouche, un peu mince de corp et goût d’épices trop peu affirmé malgré le faible houblonnage. Une bière de saison automnale correcte et buvable, sans plus.

341ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Orange/copper body with very thin off white head. Heavy Ginger aroma, nutmeg, caramel malts and some pumpkin. Taste is very much the same. Thin, sweet, great carbonation. Very sessionable with a great spice character.

fidelis83 (1953) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Copper pour with a dark amber core and a thin, creamy off white head. Aroma is caramel, toast, lemony tartness, nuttiness and a hint of earthy sweetness, not necessarily something I would pick out as pumpkin. The flavor has a lot more pumpkin character, with a nice roastiness to it, some molasses, plummy dark fruit notes, and light vinous notes. Light to medium body chewy, slightly creamy entry, light to medium carbonation and dry, slightly acidic finish. Good stuff overall, nice Belgian-esque background.

slowrunner77 (1743) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2014
"Priced in between the six-packs and the bombers. A slightly better and more robust than expected brew. The body was quite smooth and relatively rich, the beer’s strong point. Semi sweet pumpkin and pretty good use (not overuse) of spices made this a nice one."

Aurelius (4175) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Twistoff, standard longneck, ok label. Clear, darkish rusty bronze. Filmy, almost-white head. Dry, biscuity, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Spice bitterness gets a bit cloying. Medium body, starchy-spice finish, good carbonation. Fair, especially for a cursed style. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

341 ml bottle. Pours an amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is heavy pumpkin with spice and a hint of caramel. Flavour has notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, spice and a hint of caramel. Light-medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle purchased at City Beer. I know this is old as shit, but I like this brewery. The aroma is on the sweet and sugary side. Spiced heavily with vanilla and nutmeg mostly. Transparent copper/amber body with a small, weak, quickly dissipating light tan head. Starts with a pretty malty start with caramel and toasted flavors. Mild nutmeg and vanilla in the middle. Finishes sweet. The spices are really dialed back in this, which I prefer. Of course, that could also be due to the fact that this beer is probably 9 months old, too.

jrodooo5 (1016) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 8, 2014
This is a pretty standard but fine pumpkin! Decent rustic orange pour w/ no head or lacing. Good aroma & slightly spicy. The taste is clean and crisp w/ cinnamon standing out & a slight pumpkin flavor in there. Average palate and quite drinkable! Pretty good!

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2014
11.5 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/6/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pumpkin, brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, toast, biscuit, floral, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, pumpkin, and spice notes; with good strength. Taste of big pumpkin, brown sugar, caramel, toast, biscuit, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, floral, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, brown sugar, caramel, toast, biscuit, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly slick, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent pumpkin ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
