From bottle. Pours a deep amber/brown colour, opaque. Light whiff of pumpkin but definite impression of vegetable matter Flavor is blend of unsweetened pumpkin pie, some spiciness carried along by excessive carbonation. Managed the bottle but don’t think pumpkin beers are my thing...

Drank from Bottle Smells very strong of pumpkin and spices. Colour unknown. Taste is well balanced. Not too much pumpkin flavour. ANd the pumpkin tastes real, not artificial. Good amount of carbonation. Not a lot of aftertaste. Overall I can say i was impressed with this beer. Having sampled many Pumpkin beers, I can say that this is the best. Good flavour with everything in balance. I would not purchase for myself, but the wife sure does enjoy. MB

Amber orange, fast fading head. Pumpkin pie spices in nose in palate. Palate is very thin and quite phenolic (band aids). Why bother ?

Karol (758) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2015
Bottled. Aroma of mild whisky, coca cola plus cinamon, a bit ginger and not so much pumpkin as I expected. The taste mirrors the aroma plus a lot of malt, whisky pudding, alcohol. Something like whisky coke. Refreshing. Dry malty finish. Good, but a in a blind test I would not guess this as a pumpkin ale.

plaugher (394) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
12oz bottle into English pint. Pours a slightly opaque golden orange with quickly dissipating foamy white head. Spicy nose with nutmeg and pumpkin pie notes. Similar pie sweetness flavour-wise, but kinda muted. Alright, but better available in town.

mzaar (2755) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2015
Fat @ Brewpub, Toronto. Klar mörk guldfärgad med ett något smutsat skum. Dofter och smaker av kryddnejlika, ingefära, karamell och vanilj. Det är jul så det står härliga till. Medelbeska. Mjuk munkänsla.

mcberko (14077) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours a clear dark orange with a small beige head. Nose brings out lots of pumpkin spices, especially cinnamon. Flavour is massively spicy, with loads of cinnamon upfront, followed by nutmeg and pumpkin purée. Pretty standard pumpkin ale, with a light body and not a whole lot going on. Meh.

ryanhunter_4 (217) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2015
Pint poured at real sports in Toronto. Pours Amber with minimal head. Smells like cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes like most pumpkin ales; heavy on spices. Drinkable. Not spectacular

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2015
Tap at the Brewpub. Near clear dark amber with a brief off-white head. The nose is warming pumpkin and indistinct spices, same applies to flavour. Not really enjoying this. Lightish body, average carbonation. Dryish. Metallic. The unsatisfying brief finish is so similar to other sub-par pumpkin ales.

superspak (4581) - Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/19/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, wheat, gingerbread, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, wheat, gingerbread, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, gingerbread, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice session pumpkin wheat ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA via Windsor. Murky amber brown thin head. Clove aroma, a bit overpowering. Some brown sugar, more clove. Not for me.
