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.

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

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 Iíd like. Flavor also falls a bit short of a good pumpkin flavored beer, but thatís what I sort of expected from a AB beer.

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.

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.

It poured a dark golden color. The aroma was of some pumpkin and a little spiciness. The flavor was of pumpkin, cinnamon, and malts. A very decent Pumpkin Wheat.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy dark golden/brownish color. Aroma is of weaker pumpkin and spice. A little malt present also. Flavor is also of pumpkin, malts, cinnamon, gourd, and leaves. A little more on the pumpkin side than the spice side like Shipyard Pumpkin Head is. Not being too light & carbonated also gives it a bump in the score for me.

Unlike other pumpkin beers Iíve had, this one has a much lighter aroma. Thereís a hint of pumpkin and a touch of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg). Itís an attractive beer. Golden-orange body that is slightly cloudy. A fine white head clings nicely to the glass. The palate is relatively light. The flavor stands out a bit more than the aroma. I can taste the sweetness of the pumpkin, tempered by the bite of the cinnamon and nutmeg. Itís a very drinkable beer that is lighter than the average pumpkin brew. Another thumbs up for AB. Nice effort.
