3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pale orange and copper colored in appearance with a cap of white foam. Aroma is a blend of nutmeg, pumpkin pie puree and ginger along with a noticeable caramel malt presence. The taste leads off with a slightly tart and vegetal baked pumpkin flavor backed by lots of cinnamon, clove and allspice. Also some caramel and lightly toasted malt in the background. Alcohol notes are fairly well hidden. Mouthfeel is creamy with moderate carbonation and a dry, spiced finish. Not bad on its own but would probably taste better with a nice meal as some of the flavors are a little overpowering.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer was a very hazy and cloudy light amber-straw color with a modest foamy white head that had short retention, average cling, and good lacing. Its aroma featured a nice blend of nutmeg and pumpkin spices along with brown sugar, cinnamon, and some earthy and grainy hops. Its taste was a somewhat sweet blend of spices, pumpkin, and malt, which gradually gave way to a more sour and slightly bitter pumpkin and grain effect. The beer had a pretty full and wet mouthfeel with decent carbonation and a touch of creamyness.

650ml bottle. Deep orange colour, cloudy, not much head. Nutmeg, brown sugar, cider, and pie crust aroma. Big pumpkin over a strong malty taste. Not much alcohol. Body is a little oily, kind of wet. A good pumpkin ale, but the Smashed Blueberry was quite a bit better.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very heavy version of a seasonal pumpkin ale. All the pumpkin and spice you would expect but with a very full bodies and hopped beer behind it. The nose is fresh pumpkin purée and to its credit it is heavier on the gourd than on spices unlikely seasonals. It's a bit hard for me to get used to but it definitely is not a typical pumpkin beer.

Hoppy Halloween! Questa birra alla zucca è veramente speciale. Il gusto dolce della zucca avvolge il palato e viene esaltato da alcune note fruttate e speziate. La gradazione molto alta non è assolutamente percepita, tranne che col senno di poi. Complimenti alla fantasia e alla competenza di mr. Pugsley!!

You need to get this beer as soon as it is released. The flavor is greatly diminished if you let it sit. It is every thing you want in a Pumpkin beer. It’s hard to say if this is the best or Southern Tier. I think this is slightly better, not as sweet. Drink it fresh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color of this beer is a slightly hazy orange color with a medium white head, and the aroma blends pumpkin, caramel malts, dough yeast, and light malts. The taste combines a touch of sourness, slight sweetness, and a slight spice, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a finish that is an extension of the taste that highlights the spice and sourness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
9% Bottle, served in a snifter. It’s lighter than the Uinta Punk’n more of a honey brown with a thick foamy off-white head. The aroma is fruity, then the spices kick in - cinnamon & nutmeg. The taste is quite spicy, pleasantly sweet but more like a soda than a beer. Kind of reminds me of something like a Shirley Temple or Cherry Coke kind of vibe. A medium body & you don’t get that 9% at all. Too sweet & candy like for me. Think of this as the Halloween candy of pumpkin beers. Nice enough though.
