COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perennial favorite at our Brewery Halloween party, this reddish amber ale is perfect for fall. Real pumpkin adds a full body and sweetness, while deep roasted malts lend a toasty finish to this subtly spiced brew.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized very light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent cola brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was nutmeg. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild nutmeg pumpkin aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of pumpkin and nutmeg. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

12oz in Boston. Much darker autumnal beer than the others I’m seeing around these parts, which is nice. Deeper pumpkin pie flavors, less of the sweet spice and more deep vegetal and caramel flavors. Spice latte in the end though, a bit sweet and creamy. Still not a favorite.

Ok. Musty pumpkin, nutmeg aroma. Cloudy orange color. A little spicy, kind of sour. Nothing special.

Bottle from variety pack purchased at Costco. Poured a dark amber color, with a medium sized off-white head, dissipation occurred quickly. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices - nutmeg, cinnamon notes are light in this one, with some other various spices. Flavor is light pumpkin flavor, some nutmeg, other spices and some notes of earthy hops. Okay.

(bottle) Surprised to see this in six packs, so I decided to give it a try. Pours a dark amber color with a medium cream colored head that retains well. Aroma smells more along the lines of an O-fest for some reason, as the toastiness comes in strong right away, and subdues the pumpkin and spice scents present. Flavor holds a little more pumpkin presence that’s coupled with more of the toasty malt. Taste a bit like Fat Jack Jr. Get a cherry hard candy flavor oddly enough too. Spices round out in the finish and provide a nice kick. Mouthfeel really shines on this beer. Save for some tingles of carb, the heft and smoothness of it resembles a cask pour. This could stand to have some more pumpkin flavor imbued within it, but overall this is still pretty tasty.

The Harvest Pumpkin Ale pours a clear dark orange color with a light brown frothy head that lasts for a good while and leaves thick lacing behind. The aroma is pumpkin and spice. The flavor is pumpkin, spice and toast. Overall this is a pretty nice brew.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle 355ml. Pours mahogany with low beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of spices, cloves, slight alcohol. Taste is of spices (cloves, muskad), pumpkins, sugar, slight weird vegetal stuff (I guess it comes from pumpkins), slight acidity. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: Nice spices: not too cloying. Decent, but you have to love those spices/pumpkins.

Poured in to a shaker from bottle. Pored redish orange with quickly disapearing tan head. Smell and taste of spice. Very nice beer

Bottle from mix pack. Pours maple brown with quickly dispersing foam. Smells sweet of pumpkin spice. Tastes sweet of nutmeg, cinnamon pecans.

Drank from the bottle. Very soft and sweet pumpkin aroma. The taste, however, is not sweet at all. Crisp and clean peppery flavor up front with a mild pumpkin finish. It's a great pumpkin ale if you don want overly sweet or fruity flavor palate. Crisp and light but still full of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
