12oz bottle poured in imperial pint glass. Pours a hazy copper color with a decent off white head that fades to a thin ring of bubbles all too quickly. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, molasses, vanilla, and spice. Very pumpkin pie like. The pumpkin, cinnamon and molasses, as well as caramel really come through in the taste. However it is very sweet and sugary, not unlike actual pumpkin pie. Body is slighty thick for an ale, but creamy and smooth. Very well balanced! Perfect amount of carbonation, active but without stinging the tongue. Great cinnamon and pumpkin aftertaste. Overall a very well done pumpkin ale! One of the better ones Iíve had!

Tried this beer on tap at the GABF un Denver, CO. I like pumpkin beers, but this is not a good one. Overly sweet, barely any pumpkin flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zombiecleric (2) - Columbus, - OCT 8, 2012 does not count
12 ounce bottle. It was like drinking seltzer water with a slightly spiced, alcoholic, wortlike after taste. It was not only the pumpkin ale Iíve ever drank it was probably the worst beer Iíve ever drank.

Panzuriel (1360) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Rtb pumpkin pours rich red brown slightly hazy. Nose is mild spice and meaty pumpkin scent. Body is fluid and lightly carbonated. Taste is mellow with a good amount of cinnamon and clove without it being too much. Slightly warming. Nice finish.

Tap at New Albanian. Sweet pumpkin malt, nutmeg aroma - like pumpkin pie meets eggnog. Amber with a small off-white head. Pumpkin malt, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavor with a ginger finish. Medium creamy body, Outstanding pumpkin ale.

Draft. Nutmeg, light cinnamon and pumpkin malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin malt flavor with a strong ginger finish. Very smooth. A hit even with my wife who has hated almost every beer (except for the ultra-sweet lambics) she has ever tried.

BelgianBeerGal (3243) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2012 Draft sample (twice) at Jungle Jims. They had sold out or I would have gotten more than a sample. This pumpkin beer is on par with Pumking (my fave). Great depth of flavor with a rich, silky mouthfeel. Well done. I liked it enough to buy a growler too.

Bottle: pours a nice brown color with a tan head. Aroma of wonderful cinnamon and nutmeg. The pumpkin hits you when you taste it. Well done, great example of a fall seasonal. I love the stuff this brewery is doing.

Out of the 12oz bottle. Acquired in a trade and enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter. Half a finger off-white head that fades fast. Deep amber color. Nice and hazy. Scent is full of tons of nutmeg and cinnamon. Hint of sweet molasses. Taste is loaded with pumpkins but itís sort of muted / cheap tasting. Itís not all that powerful of a taste profile..sort of cutting corners pumpkin taste. Almost no spices and an overly sweet finish with this rotten apple fast. Medium body.
