4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour form a 12oz bottle. Deep orange/brown slightly cloudy brew with small tan head. Great aroma of earth, pumpkin and mild spices. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, an ineffable pumpkin quality and mild spices. Ends with a beautifully balanced bitterness that slakes the sweet pumpkin pie flavor and leaves the palate clean, save for a bit of ethanol. A remarkably good pumpkin brew!

Bottle shared with northropfrye via cards04. Smells and tastes like pumpkin pie! OMG! OMG! Finishes watery and not such a great appearance or palate but OMG the pumpkin pie smell and taste. Kudos to them for nailing this!

Poured this at a perfect temperature with a small fizzy head that promptly disappeared, no lace and a clear brown color. Aroma is spicy pumpkin pie and more bold than the flavor. This is one of the better pumpkin beers where the flavors are not so overpowering. There is some balance; malts can be tasted; still not one of my favorite kinds of beers but this isn't bad. Good body. Decent finish with a very slight hint of alcohol.

Pour to snifter, a thick and murky blood red/orange with little head. Nose is quite literally pumpkin pie, little bit graham cracker, some cider. Flavor holds up to the robust nose, brimming with warm spices, balanced mouthfeel and a forgiving carbonation. A very great offering!

Pours a hazy amber-orange. Has an incredibly strong cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. A sweet taste from cinnamon and nutmeg with some malts, caramel, and spices. A medium body with lingering cinnamon and spices.

Outstanding pumpkin beer with a perfect blend of pumpkin and spice that still tastes like a beer.

I’m very impressed with the Whole Hog lineup, I hope they keep it going with other beer. Poured a semi cloudy amber colour with a huge frothy top. Instant nutmeg, pumpkin and cinnamon notes right away. Taste was nice and spicey, creamy and delicioso! No Pumking for sure, but it was damn good anyway!

Draft at Jerry’s. Amber with light beige head / Sweet nose of pumpkin, caramel, and spice / Medium body, soft carbonation, somewhat chewy, sweet, and sticky, with good balance and finish / Well balanced flavors of pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove / Pretty much as advertised, and a nice job by Point.

The beer pours autumn amber with a nice tan head on top. The aroma is light earthy pumpkin and spices as expected, pleasant. The flavor is similar on a light to medium body. The cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and the usual autumn spices with the light pumpkin flavor make up for it.

Poured from bottle. I smell pumpkin, apple and spice. Mahogany with a bit of a tan head. Well balanced flavors of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, banana, burnt caramel and a dash of pepper. Slight alcohol in the back. Mellow finish. Well done.
