3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly fresh 2010 bomber. The body is a clear, dark, copper-amber color, and it’s topped by a moderately sized head of spongy, beige tinted foam. Collapsing fairly quickly, the head settles in as a wispy film with a thin, bubbly edge. Lacing is limited to minimal spotting and skinny horizontal lines. The nose is based in crusty cake, caramel sugar, and roasted pumpkin with a hint of cream. Spices are dry, suggesting toasted coriander, nutmeg, and clove, with a slight hint of cinnamon. Yeast is definitely of a Belgian mold, doughy and spicy, well paired with the malts. Flavors mostly follow suit, bitter, dark, winery spices giving a sharp edge to the dried brown sugar and toasted pumpkin malts. Earthen hops and nutmeg balance the sweetness out well, as dry, bready Belgian yeast contributes a unique feel. Still, I’d say it is a little coriander-heavy for my tastes. The palate is substantial, yet sufficiently dry, as the yeast has done well to attenuate the excess sugars. Carbonation is on the lively side of moderate, which intensifies the dryness. Overall, I found this to be solid, but far from great. Back the coriander off a bit and it would certainly be better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. An orangish yellow pour with a small white head. A bit of fruitiness and the cinnamon/spiceyness combined with sugars. OK but not as good as regular pumpkin ales IMO.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a small off white head. Aroma is earthy Belgian yeast with hints of pumpkin and spices. The flavor is sweet malt and lots of yeast, very light pumpkin taste. Pretty light and actively carbonated with a crisp finish. Like others have said, this is more of a Belgian ale with just a touch of pumpkin.
