COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cherry smoke, rye, pumpkin and exotic yeast conjure up the autumn experience in an obscure marriage of flavors. Enjoy this truly unique offering!

The Dan Journal #332. Tasted 3/16/10. 12oz bottle. Pours hazy with a murky brown hue. Clinging, lacing layer of white head. Aromas of mild citrus and cherries. Mild smoke and and a touch doughy. Wow! This is full bodied! A flurry of flavors. A myriad of malts! Lotta spices and smoke. And yet it all plays together. Bright zesty citrus and effervescence. Touch smoke and tart, tangy cherries. Rye bitterness, Saison effervescence and tartness. Weird, but I liked it!

This will be the first poor rating that Iíve given to a beer. I feel compelled to. It was God awful! Tasted and smelled of olives and barnyard. Could not get past this. Maybe a little smoke flavor.

Had this one bottled thanks to Slothgar! Hazy, light orange pour with a thin, wispy white head, balanced nose of smoke and grass, very unusual flavors ... smoke predominates. The beer equivalent of Malort. Choked it down. I like the gutsiness of this beer but I donít know if I will get this one again.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Received a single 12-oz bottle via trade with Ughsmash. Pours a semi-hazy amber colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that has some excellent retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of smoked peat, caramel malt, floral hops, a hint of rye and campfire charred wood. Taste is medium bodied, multi-personality going on with a profile of a smoked malt, some pumpkin, cinnamon, a touch of nutmeg and some peat. Finish has a smoked peat (plastic bandage) and slight pumpkin aftertaste that leaves behind a dry peat aftertaste. Definitely not your typical nor average Pumpkin ale. This has to be the first smoked pumpkin ale Iíve encountered.

nimbleprop (4732) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle shared at the DC Local tasting. Pours a translucent orange, brown with a creamy slightly off white head. Aroma is mild, some brown sugar sweetness, a little earthy, some smokey cherry, a little wood. One person remarked, "smells like a hardware store." Flavor is smokey, cherries, peaty, fruits, wood. Active carbonation. Nice, fruity finish.

12oz bottle, thanks CaptainCougar. Cloudy amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, smoky cherry. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, some smoke. Medium body, some acidity.

triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Pours as a clear copper with a thick, white head. Subtle pumpkin aroma, sweet malts. ooo, the rye flavor jumps out, over powers the rest. The pumpkin is hidden in there. Light-medium body. Iím not a rye guy, sorry.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Pours a hazy copper orange with a frothy, clingy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of smoky phenols, cherry and treated lumber. Starts with an average fullness and some earthy smoke and grassy hop before a dark fruity grapefruity finish. A pretty unique and interesting brew, but could use fewer phenolic characters.

On tap at Sugar maple. Hazy pumpkin orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of nutmeg, pumpkin, sweet malt and spices. Taste of nutmeg, cinnamon, mild pumpkin, light fruit and yeast. Finishes up semi spicy. Nothing really stood out either way.
