Dark orange in color with a good head. Spicey aroma with notes of pine. Flavor is of subdued malt and assertive pumpkin pie spice. I admit I am a pumpkin beer fan, but I think most would find this enjoyable.

Slightly spicy, not bad. Had a nice orangish color, white head, very good aroma. Flavor was definetely different, not sure if it really tasted like pumpkin, but pretty good anyway.

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of spices and pumpkin like a pumpkin pie. The flavor is not as rewarding. Some pumpkin pie to the taste but not in a very appealing way. Good for a single drink but not for an evening's enjoyment. Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale is better.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 Nice pumpkin color and a slightly sweet scent. Funny on first taste it seemed to have a sour hoppy grapefruit taste similer to their zoomer wit and was only good after it warmed. Second time I had it it was great. I really tasted a gingerbread thing and very pumpkin like. Not a real sweet beer but it is nicly spiced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange color with a nice creamy off white head that leaves a nice lacing. Aroma of butter and mild pumpkin pie spices, a bit sweeter than I expected, light pumpkin pie flavors, but not over done, nice balanced, good spicy aftertaste, medium bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel, one of the better pumpkin beers around.

Amber color, some suspended sediment, with a medium white head. The aroma and flavor were a nice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, clove, and brwon sugar. The feel was mildly crisp.

Spices were nice. Ginger, cinnamon. I liked the pumpkin flavors. It was like drinking a piece of pumpkin pie.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a surprisingly light amber color for a harvest/pumpkin ale - clear with a foamy white head. Dinfintely spiced, nutmeg, cinnamon and all spice dominate with a little sweetness and pine also noticible. Tart, spicy and somewhat uneven flavors. Pumpkin/pumpkin pie spice, some roasty malts and a bitter, slightly metallic finish. Body is medium, smooth and pleasantly carbonated. My least favorite of the New Holland offerings to this point.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper colour with orange highlights and a super-dense off-white head. Aroma of nice spices (nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin pie) and malt. Light-bodied; Watery flavour with subtle spices and a bit of sweetness. Aftertaste clean, but a bunch of the pumpkin shows through. Overall, a nice beer, needs more flavour in the taste though! I got this twelve ounce bottle purchased by my mom from Merchant's in Dearborn, Michigan. I sampled this one on 27-November-2003!
