Pours cloudy and brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma is wheaty malts. Taste wants to be like a hefeweissen with some mellow malty and spicy overtones. Aroma and flavors are very subdued and indistinct. Hmm.

Bottle: The aroma consists of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, light pumpkin, and apple. It pours a hazy amber with a two finger off-white head that eventually fades to a thick film. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel. The finish has light ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and apple. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Draft at the brewery. Orange-gold with a small white head. Belgian yeast and spices on the aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet and rather belgian with notes of coriander, ginger, and caramel. Not much pumpkin, maybe a little. Medium body and carbonation. A little underwhelming, but still good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a ruddy brown colored body with a thin white head that concaves a bit at the edges with its lacing.
The smell had some earthy Belgian yeast up front but some nice spicy tones that softly allow some clove and malty/somewhat sugary notes. There was some light pumpkin only after some warming.
The taste was earthy yet spicy yet malty sweetness with some light vanilla and pepper. Slight clove-like vanilla aftertaste and dry spicy finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium, and was somewhat sessionable. Carbonation has an adequate harshness for a Belgian beer
yet still comes across with a decent smoothness.
Overall, this seems to be more of a Belgian ale than a spice/herb/vegetable ale. No worries, its still good stuff that I might have again as the Belgian and spicy notes take over more so than the pumpkin notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy orange amber with a transient beige head. Aroma is very light pie spice. Med body or better. Flavor is pie spice, but there is the yeast/fruit ester thing playing in. It’s thinning rapidly and the flavors aren’t really strong. It’s nice, but it’s not very exciting? Damning with faint praise? It isn’t really sweet or bitter. The flavors tend to fade away.
