mstockton (224) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2005
Had a bottle at Hackneyís in Chicago. It sure smelled good,but like most pumpkin beers, not a ton of pumpkin taste. Plus, there was a lot of carbonation. Donít get me wrong, though, itís pretty well made with a decent amount of flavor. It seems to have a lot of spice flavor to it such as clove. Kind of neat.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2005
12oz bottle acquired in trade with TannerTavernboys (thanks!). Poured a deep and cloudy amber color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and light pumpkin. Tastes of pretty much the same. The cloves came out as I drank the beer. Lively body. This one was OK as the pumpkin and spices werenít overpowering.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2005
I had a 12 oz bottle while touring the brewery. Poured a very murky goopy, orange. It looked just like a can of Libbyís pumpkin. The clove was the dominate feature, but the other spices where very presant. Very fizzy in my mouth.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Amber color wtih no head. Solid aroma of cloves and cinnamon. The cloves really stand out in the taste, but the base is pretty watery malt. Tasty, but it smelled like it would be so much more.

Pour is orange with a white head. Aroma is a great mix of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is also outstanding. Pumpkin comes out strong follwed by the spices. This is the closes beer I have had that would compare to pumkin pie on thanksgiving.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2006 Bottle: It pours a very big fluffy light offwhite head that lingers for minutes after pour and a slight ring remains throughout. The color is an orange/gold/amberish color. The aroma is spices and a tiny touch of pumpkin. Little to no carbonation. That really comes through in the very smooth mouthfeel. The tastes are a little of pumpkin, sweet (apple, cinnomon, nutmeg, cloves), and malts. Very drinkable beer that is smooth. The beer itself may not warrent the high rating I gave it but by and far the finest (of less than half a dozen) seasonals/pumpkin Iíve sampled.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Pours a murky bronze/organge color, small white head. Aroma is cinnamon, other spices, Allspice? Tarragon? Flavor is sweet and full of more spice, nice malt backbone. Overall quite drinkable!

Everyone is so timid when it comes to pumpkin brews,even Dogfishhead. This one had least had some pumpkin body to it, not just spices, I guess a great pumpkin just isnít going to be made, but this one is close

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with beerhandy - Thanks Chris! - Pours cloudy amber with a short white head that fades quickly to a film. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cloves, and a bit of vanilla. Flavor is a nice blend of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Very smooth and well blended flavors. The palate is smooth and creamy. Not very carbonated. Just right. This is a very nice tasty seasonal!!
