Bottle thanks to savnac, thanks for another great beer Ira! Pours a faintly hazy light copper with a small white head. Aroma is spicy, corriander, light malt, vegetal, nutmeg, and lightly peppery. Flavor is also spicy and vegetal with notes of malt and nutmeg. Pumpkin is subtle; not too much. IT’s OK, not my favorite offering from this brewery.

Bottle shared by BrianK. Man, these guys have gone down hill. Pumpkin spice, very vegetal, zucchini, white pepper aroma. Prickly body, harsh, a bit thin. Sweet, unfermented malts in the finish. Bleh.

Mild Pumpkin flavor. Light belgian character from the yeast comes through. Not bad, not great. Kind of subtle.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bomber; pours clear orange with thin white head; nice aromas of gourds, dried vegis, wheat and yeast; the gourds reminds me of a Cambridge brewing beer from the Elysian pumpkin fest; texture is thin with crackers, lemons, cloves and generic vegi flavors; slightly medicinal; like the aromas, but drinks rather strange with uneven mix of nutmeg-type spices and stale coriander

Bottle @ Paul’s new decade tasting, thanks BrianK. Yellow orange pour with some head. Slight pumpkin notes, along with cinnamon, spices, some yeast and earthy vegetable and hop notes. On the weaker side of MS beers I’ve had.

The aroma is sour, vegetable, squash. The appearance is clear, gold yellow, white head. the flavor is vegetable, pumpkin, sour, vinegar. The finish is noble hops. Medium body. Ok. Intersting idea, middling execution.

Bottle at Paul’s tasting. Pours a clear orange hued golden amber with a thin white head. Light sweetness with a touch of candied citrus, and almost ginger tones. Medium bodied, sweet with touches of candy sugar. Finishes dry and with a light yeast note and some dry fruit.

Bottle, is MS falling off... Pours a copper golden body with a white head. Squash, pumpkin seeds, grains, pumpkin seed, lemon, cinnamon, more veges, squash and grains. Thin and light bodied, had no idea it was 7% on the plus side.

Bomber shared by BrianK. Pours a mostly clear dull orange/yellow with a thinning white head. Aroma is very light on the pumpkin spices, cinnamon nutmeg, etc- ok Belgian yeast- spicy phenolics, some clove and black pepper- light doughy toasted malts. Flavor is lightly sweet, doughy malts, light pumpkin spices, earthy toasted malts, light bitter slight cabbage and DMS crackery and a straight forward sugary syrup sweetness in the middle- finish is a bit slick- ok overall but nothing special. A bit boring.
