On tap @TheMoonBrewpub. Hazy yellow with minimal head. Pear, yeast, cinnamon and nutmeg, citrus. Well-carbonated, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Subtle sweetness, incredible flavour. Much more "Pearzen" than "Pumpkin" (maybe that’s a good thing).

Ferris (7695) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle - Fruity esters and sweet malts, light spice. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Peppery, citrus peel and a nice acidity to round out the sweetness. I like this, but I have no idea about the Pumpkin or for that matter what it is. Tastes kinda like a Saison.

En fût à la brasserie. Orange brumeux avec un tête moyen beige. L’arôme des poires avec très peu de citrouille et épices. Un peu du malt bien équilibré avec une amertume doux.

Amber-brown. Caramelized pumpkin aroma with a touch of spice, and also caramelly malts. Lots of sweetness, more caramelized pumpkin, pretty malty and with a bit of alcohol late.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy opaque orange with a medium white head. Aroma is hugely fruity, with loads of pear, light pumpkin, and light spiciness. Flavour is very fruity with mostly juicy pears and light spiciness. Not really getting any pumpkin here. Very well-balanced, with a spicy fruity finish. Good stuff.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy dark blond color. As the color suggests, this pumpkin beer is not based on caramelly malts; also the spice profile is different, basically coriander, maybe some star anise; the aroma is quite perfumy indeed, the flavor is a bit simpler; hints of orange peel. Relatively low bitterness, but with a light, pleasant alcohol kick.
More a Saison than a Halloween beer, thus more appreciated.

RumRunner101 (881) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
Pours a deep, hazy gold. Aroma is the combination of a banana cream pie and pumpkin pie. Flavour has the wheat and banana weizen flavour with some sweetness from the pear, followed by vegetal pumpkin-ness. Finish is a little bit warming and spicey. Actually, two styles I’m not crazy about coming together nicely.

Gerbeer (2360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy turbid yellow brown with light head. Aromas of cloves and toasted pumpkin seeds. Flavors of a creamy light pumpkin pie with a doughy crust, plus a sweetness from the pears. Maybe better than the million other pumpkin ales out there this year but I still don’t get it.

Lagerboy (1561) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Bomber. Unclear golden yellow, creamy white head settles and lasts. Aroma is fruity, floral with a blend of clove, wit and pie spices. Crisp pear, cinnamon and nutmeg, lightly pumpkined, lots of clove with a firm weizen backbone. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Interesting and unique, but still: NFL (Not For Lagerboys) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(16oz glass) Sampled at the brewpub on October 9th, 2013. Pours a hazy orange body with little head. Very floral nose with ample spice. Cinnamon and clove, yet a good eclipse of gourd and some pear sweetness. Not boozy not is it vegetable - I actually like this because of the decent carbonation and citrus and sweet base. Nice.
Earlier Rating: 11/2/2012 Total Score: 3.6
(16oz glass) Purchased at the brewpub for $5.00. Thin, frothy head atop a clear orange body.. Nose is amazing, somewhat a Lush cinnamon soap body. Same for the flavour, highly fragrant and great minuscule pear sweetness to counter the gourd. Little detection of the ABV.
