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!!

My compliments to the brewers of this beer. A very nice combination of beer and the various fall flavors, pumpkin in particular. Very smooth, sweet, and quite drinkable. This is my second O’Fallon beer and they are 2 for 2 in quality.

Not overly complex, but it has a nice balance of flavors. Sweetness was a bit much, though. Mild aromas of cinnamon and sweet pumpkin. Hint of bitterness in the finish.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 19, 2005
bottle-pours "pumpkin" orange with a small white head. cinnnamon, allspice, ginger and nutmeg are big here. the actuall pumpkin aroma is very faint. cinammon and pumpkin flavors mostly. lightly bitter and a good dose of sweet toasted malts. light finish of some lingering spice. a fairly tasty pumpkin beer that i would try again.

Slightly funky, cobweb yeast aroma with floral notes followed by spices that are subtle, the cinnamon is noticable at first but then it is hard to pick out from the other spices. A medium caramel malt aroma compliments the spices. Cloudy orange in color with a wwhite head that diminishes quickly. Thin caramel malt flavor that fades quickly with the pumpkin pie spices: clove nutmeg, etc... detectible in the quick finish. The finish reminds me of a belgian style with some floral notes. Thin palate, very light with a dry finish.

Thanks to JPDIPSO for this one. I like pumpkin beers, and this one was rock solid. Turbid, ruddy amber pour with 1-finger, off-white head and little lacing. The aroma was very spicy, with nutmeg, cinnamon, bready malt, bread pudding. Tasted of pumpkin pie spices. It tastes like someone threw pumpkin pie in a blender, complete with the whipped cream! This one also reminds me a little of Viking Jule-ol. Great pumpkin aroma and taste. A top 10 pumpkin beer in my estimation.

Sampled from a 2005 bottle, this beer pours to a large fizzy tan head that diminishes to a thin spotty head that’s barely there within a minute. The body is a hazy shiny orange/copper. The aroma is nutmeg, cloves, light cinnamon, and pumpkin pie. Very festive! The flavor is mostly pumpkin bread. (If you’ve never had that, think zucchini bread w/ pumpkins instead.) Smooth fresh pumpkin, nutmeg, light cinnamon, cloves, heavy/dense (as in vegetable infused, cake-style?) bread. The palate is medium bodied and really goes with the flavor. I’d drink this again. Give is a try, but don’t get pissed off if it isn’t an "over the top big beer"! Take it for what it is...

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Sampling this again in a bottle. Poured the same cloudy orange with a slightly yellowish head. The aroma is light bananas and pumpkin. I get a hint of cinnamon. The taste is light pumpkin with a note of nutmeg. The finish is dirt and a little bit of clove. This beer still rubs me the wrong way. Sampled at the Great Taste of the Midwest 2005. Poured a cloudy orange. The aroma is nutmeg and pumkin. Not spicy at all. The taste is cardboard and nasty old sunflower seeds.

Bottle. Cloudy amber color with medium white head. Aroma of light pumpkin. Flavor was sweet pumpkin and sweet spice. Finish was short and sweet. Worth trying once.
