Being a huge fan of pumpkin ale, this one really got me excited. Pumpkin is there in full but not overwhelming and the spices are just right. This and weyerbacher imperial pumpkin are my top choices for pumpkin ale

Bottle from beastiefan2k - thanks Eugene! Reddish orange with mega floaties and a thin tan quickly fading topper. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pumpkin, ah pumpkin pie. Taste of nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin with no real hop presence. Finishes up very dry. The beer that ushered in the Kurt Phillips era for the Badgers, let’s hope it’s a winning one.

bottle, tanks beastiefan, pours a blood orange color with a thin white head. The aroma is wonderful. Pumpkin pie all the way, pumpkin, spice and cinnamon. Light body with a toasted malt character but the flavors are all pumpkin pie again. Lots of pumpkin, spice and sweetness. Lingering spice in the finish. I like this one.

Bottled with love on 8/21/2009 - FRESH! Just appeared in Kansas City, and boy am I glad. Pours a clear, rich copper color with a perfect off-white head. Third pumpkin in 2 hours...either they’re growing on me, or I put them in the right order! Aroma is a crazy explosion of nutmeg with some cinnamon, pumpkin pie, and a bit of anise/licorice. Flavor is just a touch strong on the cinnamon and allspice, drowning out the obvious pumpkin undertones. Unlike the O’Fallon, this one really tastes like pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix and evaporated milk. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry, spicy finish. Honestly, could have been close to a 4 if only a little less bold.

Bottle. One of the pumpkins that really gets it right, truly pie-like with all the appropriate spices. Pretty sweet from the fairly sizable malt, but appropriately so, dessert-like despite all the spices, quite rich.

One of the better pumplin beers I have had. Even with some age on it. Great spices with some pumpkin flesh too. Nice sweet balance with brown sugar to go with the pie spices. Nice.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle at PPRBSG 09. Pours a mostly clear filtered look with a filmy white head. Aroma is typical all spice, pumpkin character, clovey and cinnamon, nutmeg, etc with light caramel malts, hints of toffee, and metallic copper hints. Ok pumpkin flavor, sweet, orangey caramel, toasted malts, fruity esters, allspice, and hints of pine and pumpkin pie. Ok.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aromas of clove and cinnamon and light pumpkin spice. Flavor follows the nose mostly, ending with a crisp light bitterness.

Bottle at PPRBSG09. Pours a clear orange. Aroma of sweet pumpkin pie. Some crust too, but mostly pie. Flavor of cinnamon, sweet crust, and lots of pumpkin spices. Quite good (especially considering it’s out of season). One of my favorite pumpkin beers. 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 PPRBSG. Pours a brown body with a tan head. Pumpkin pie and vanilla and cinnamon clove notes. Very nice pumpkin brew doesn’t taste artificial at all. Had this on draft in KC, i rated it 3.8-9, so i will just leave this rating. Good stuff. Actually i think Eugene brought the bottle i rated at Peters Gathering.
