I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I can’t handle to much pumpkin but I do enjoy a little pumpkin in beer during the festive fall. aroma- has a nutty pumpkin smell to it. appearance- looks nice with a decent head taste- Pumpkin with wheat just as you would guess. palate- good co2 on it with the ability to drink a couple...not a few though.... Overall I would reach for another one down the road.....

(bottle - 12 oz) Orange pour with a thin head. Sour wheat and raw pumpkin aroma. Flavor doesn’t have the pumpkin pie spice that I like. It was either so subtle or just completely overpowered by the wheat. Not a good combination.

Reviewed from notes. This was always poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a slightly ruddy orange/brown color with a decent looking foamy white head. The lacing was fairly thick and coated the glass nicely. The smell was mainly some Autumn like spices such as ginger, allspice and cinnamon. The pumpkin itself is pretty subdued. The taste was spicy and sweet through the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable quality to it. The carbonation seems okay for the pumpkin ale style and to me. Overall, decent pumpkin ale. There’s nothing bad nor is there anything spectacular about it.

Aroma is more spice than pumpkin. They could have taken more chances with the aroma. Doesn't taste bad, just not pumpkin flavored. It's just shock tip with a hint of allspice. Palate is average, actually a little better than I was expecting.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with medium off-white head. Spicy aroma with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Flavor matches aroma. Better than I thought it would be.
