3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2012 Served in a snifter at Mtn Sun. Pours a hazy bright orange with a finger of rapidly diminishing white head. Moderate, thin lacing. Smells fruity and sweet like a belgian, with tones of pumpkin spices: allspice and nutmeg. Flavor is mild pumpkin and spice up front, then fades to sweet grain/wheat. Could use more pumpkin flavor and perhaps more spice in my opinion. Moderate carbonation and medium body, mild finish. Overall, an interesting beer.

Tap @ Vine St. Slightly hazy crayola orange with a thin spotty head. Aroma of classic belgo yeast, pumpkin, and a touch of cinnamon. Refreshing palate with pumpkin tones, farm yeast, light pie spicing, and a pale malt tone. Not shabby, but nothing incredible.

There have been a few pumpkin stouts in the northeast. This copycat, on tap at the Boulder Mountain Sun brewpub, is extract based to me. Spices even cloves in a reddish dark brown col;oure body, a little head and lace. Needsmore, and real pumpkin.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Moderate amounts of spice and pumpkin flavor. Nice malt backing and a caramel flavor to add. The aroma was nice and spicy with some pumpkin. A very nice pumpkin beer.

amber. vienna and caramel malt character gives the pumpkin a moderate sweetness to go along with the soft pulpiness. pumpkin spice quality is medium to strong. light metallic aroma as well. medium sweetness up front, drying somewhat across the middle. american hops give it moderate bitterness. medium chewiness but mostly firm body. well-made. overall an enjoyable rendition.
