Our version of a fall seasonal ale. A medium bodied wheat beer made with real Pumpkin and sweet potato, and Pearle and Mt. Hood hops . Perfectly balanced with the wonderful fall spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. A perfect blend of spices and a traditional wheat ale made to satisfy the seasonal fall ale thirst, but not overpower the flavor of the beer.

Enjoyed this one on draught at the RI Brewers Fest 2014 in Pawtucket, RI. They had me at pumpkin. This is a really great pumpkin ale. I am a huge fan of pumpkin beers and this one does not disappoint. The addition of sweet potato really amps up the sweetness and squashy pie character of a good pumpkin ale. Classic spices make this a slice of pumpkin pie in a glass. This beer pours to a beautiful deep orange color with a nice white head and a soft to moderate carbonation. The nose is wonderful with aromas of pie spice. The usual suspects of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg are here but are not over stated. The plate has a firm palate of wheat malt that supports a back drop of sweet and squashy flavors of pumpkin and sweet potato. This beer finishes with more of pumpkin meat and sweet potato flavors up front, then ends with a sweet and spicy mélange of pie spice that screams pumpkin/sweet potato pie. If you are going to have a pumpkin ale in your line up, do it right. Ravenous does.
