2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is doughy and has all the traditional spices. Flavor has some earthiness, caramel and spice...bit muddled. Mouthfeel is lively and the finish is slightly spicy and dry. Just too muddled and not pumpkiny enough for my taste.

Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Faint pumpkin aroma. The flavor was a subtle spicy, clove, and cinnamon. I would have liked a little more flavor but this was not too bad overall.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark orange, slightly murky with not much of ahead. Aroma is spicy-sweet with some vanilla accents and pumpkin pie spice notes. Flavor has a strong clove presence, some nutmeg and a bit of ripening vegetables. Mouthfeel is a tad starchy, but not a huge detractor. Overall, a pretty solid rendition.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light brown orange color,with a modest head that keeps its foam throughout drinking,some soapy lacing.Aroma was better before the swirl and pour the last inch, although taste was better once empting the bottle giving it a smoother full mouthfeel.Personally i thought this was slightly overspiced for my preference but noting overpowering,i just feel there is a limit with spice as this one smelled like cola but you got a good pumpkin taste along with a good amount of spice,so it wasnt just a spiced beer that tastes like cola but a pretty decent pumpkin brew.Not something i could drink a few of and not get sick of though.Doesnt leave the greatest taste in your mouth.If this has belgian yeast i say let that shine,not the spice so much.THe spices can overpower a good yeast strain.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a light pumpkin and some spice. Flavor has a more pronounced pumpkin with a spicy finish. Not a bad beer. Pumpkin and spice are there but not over the top as some beers

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into snifter. Dark murky color, slightly hazy with tints of brown and mud. Aroma has a slight pumpkin spice to it but not as much as I’d like. Flavor also falls a bit short of a good pumpkin flavored beer, but that’s what I sort of expected from a AB beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pumpkin and notes of wheat/spice in the aroma. The flavor is pumpkin pie with tinges of wheat. Not among my favorite styles, but A-B Inbev does a decent job in brewing this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is of pumpkin and spice. Taste is malty with a bit of spice and pumpkin flavor, though the finish tapers to a wateriness. Slight citrus, pepper, and coriander flavors along with some cinnamon and clove.
