Pours a hazy orange with a very light spice nose. Head is white leaving a ring head with spotty lacing. Taste is soft spice with ST wheat lightness. Carbonation is lively. It is a pumpkin ale. How about more pumpkin wheats from other brewers?

Not bad, but not fresh ingredients I think. It lacks some citrus and freshness. The spices are right and the mouthfeel is good, not to mushy/grainy. Overall i liked it but in order to get a high rating and a real following they need to use the best of the best and add some citrus and real flavor

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy dark orange pour, thin off white head. Watery wheat malt, very lightly pumpkin, even lighter pie spice, and dull sweetness. A vet simple watered down beer for the masses, but still drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma - wheat malt, faint pumpkin;
Appearance - light brown, very hazy, opaque, pillowy head, poor lacing;
Taste - mild wheat front, subtle pumpkin back, surprisingly tart finish;
Palate - overpoweringly crisp, watery body;
Overall - definitely the worst pumpkin brew I’ve had, probably on the top ten list of overall worst brews I’ve had, pathetic attempt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Soft cloudy orange color. Thin foamy off-white head. Nose was pumpkin and vegetable, with some wheat and malts. Flavor was unique. Crisp and clear pumpkin flavor. Not simply pumpkin flavoring or spice - it tasted like I bit into a slice of fresh pumpkin. For this reason, I rate it higher. Its a fresh taste. A nice take on the style, and out of the box.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy orange-brown. Aroma is sweet pumpkin and light wheat. Flavor is more pumpkiny than I’d expect. Pretty decent for an AB product. Not a whole lot of spice but still pretty okay.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 Had just a taste. Just basically a thin pumpkin beer. It is pretty bad and seems a bit artificial.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
...had this from the bottle. On the nose are strong pie spices, some clove, and other weird notes. Has some wheat flavor, but is overpowered by all the weird spices, and after a couple, it becomes very cloying and the aftertaste is very overpowering. I kinda enjoyed the first one, but after the second, that was enough. Shock top, I’m not shocked that this is another sub-par offering.
