3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Darker golden, smidgen of haze, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Has very much of a farmhouse Saison sort of nose, musty wheat/hay.   Also has some nutmeg like spices in the background.   Not really sure how Pumpkin oriented this one is.   As it warms up getting more of a corriander/grains of paradise like aroma.   Yeah, very Belgianesque in its flavor.   This almost has more in common with a Witbier than it does a Pumpkin spiced sort of beer.   The nutmeg gets overshadowed with corriander.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Musty corriander like finish.   Not quite a Pumpkin, not quite a Saison, not quite a Witbier.   Its all parts of those though.   Interesting beer at least.   However, I do wish it was more Pumpkin oriented.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Crisp copper and amber coloured body with a nice rich tan head, about two centimetres tall. Aroma of light spice, a bit of brown sugar, some earthy malt and a hint of nuts - nice and complex. Medium-bodied; Nice robust earthy malts at first with a definite pumpkin and spice flavour with some light sweetness behind. Aftertaste shows a mostly dry and spicey flavour with a lot of nice malt, some sweetness and also a hint of peanuts. Overall, a good and complex beer with a bunch of flavour and a nice malty flavour profile. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 26-December-2012 for US$9.99 sampled at home in New Paltz, New York on 21-February-2013.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Whole Foods-Bowery, 3/27/13, This beer is to moving forward!
Aroma: The nose is has some spice, ginger, clove, pumpkin, sweet malts, and Belgian yeast
Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a small off-white head and some drippy lace-work
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, with a nice spice component, and some light bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice, clean feel, tingly carbonation, and a mildly dry finish
I have a fairly limited cellar/fridge selection right now, but this seemed like the perfect beer to use for a nice celebratory drink! Anyway, this is another really nice one from Midnight Sun. I’ve been lucky enough to try a few, but I’d like to get my hands on more of their beers for sure. Not only it this one a complex and flavorful beer, but I found it to be both really interesting and really good as well.
