shaynsawchuk (551) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
355 mL bottle. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thin white cap. On the nose, clove, cinnamon and pumpkin and a hint of malt. Taste is somewhat watery, mildly sweet and spiced. Thin to moderate mouth feel and medium carbonation. Not to my taste.

kevinsenn (1135) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle from brewery. Aroma: metallic, malt, pumpkin, and spices bordering on artificial. The taste is just too loaded with spices for me. Lots of cinnamon which may or may not be real, but is too prominent nonetheless.

matt7215 (2223) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
355 ml bottle from the brewery. Deep orange with a small white head. Nice spice and grame crackery pumpkin ale. Probably more enjoyable in season.

AGAquino (662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
On tap at Bar Hop. A lighter shade of orange amber, almost no head. Pumpkin and spice aroma shows up as it warms

rederic (3062) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
341ml bottle, under the name Pie-yed, cloudy amber hue, with a bubbly white head, with a yeasty, pumpkin pie nose, with some spicy nutmeg, cinnamon, clove accents, with a toasted, biscuity, caramel, bread malty note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate witrh a nice pumpkin pie, cinnamon, gingerbread, nutmeg, clove spicy character, with a biscuity, toasted, bready, caramel malty, pie crust flavour, with a toffeeish, kind of carrot cake undertone, leading towards an allspice, pumpkin pie, biscuity maltiness finish.

on tap at kick off. I over imbibed on the pumpkin this year, wearing myself out, and generally unsatisfied with all the varieties. But this post-fall season had me chillin at kickoff, and the second best beer of the night was this Pie eyed. Funny how no one seems to know the ABV. Prolly not as high as I’d like; still: the pleasantly present anise, clove and NUTMEG qualities of this beer, along with the lack of sweetness, make this, for me, one of my top pumpkin ales. Nutmeg, I think, is the key for me.

Ontbeertaster (2340) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle, pours a almost clear black or clear dark brown, the aroma was nice it lots of spice things like nutmeg and sagey. The flavour I got a lot of black licorse flavour, which I wasn’t huge on. Overall, this was decent, just not my fav pumpkin ale

Lubiere (10439) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
A hazed amber ale with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, a butty mineral malt with light boiled veggies. In mouth, a nice smooth pumpkin ale with ginger and nutmeg, a bit light but good. As Pie Eyed Pumpkin. On tap at Arrow and Loon, Oct. 17 2012.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
On tap. Hazy orange pour, fizzy white head. Aroma is cereal malt, pumpkin, nutty and earthy. A little sweet and chewy. Cereal and almost root beer flavor, hint of black tea on the dry finish. It was ok. Not an overwhelming pumpkin though.

Not bad.. Good orange colour and little head on tap at vicars vice. Pumpkin taste is pretty mellow but good spice taste.
