beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2012
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.

tfontana (63) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2015
Bottle from Foods Plus, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is pumpkin-y but without a lot of nutmeg/cinnamon/clove spiciness. Appearance is cloudy orange with minimal white head and fair retention with minimal lacing. Taste is medium sweet and not complex. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation at the tip of the tongue. Finish is pretty abrupt. Overall, more memorable pumpkin beers if you are searching for one in the fall. Not objectionable in any way but nothing to particularly recommend it.

ordybill (534) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- The spice, pumpkin and malt are a great combo on the nose Appearance - This beer has a really nice dark orange color with a small white head. Taste – I consider this to be one of the top pumpkin beers (especially for the price) Palate -This is a medium bodied beer with light carbonation. Overall - For me, this is a great pumpkin beer for the price. I recommend it.

b3shine (6275) - Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle to half-pint glass. Pours a fairly transparent pale burnt orange with off-white head that dissipates into razor-thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells sweet with notes of Belgian yeast, caramel, nutmeg, and cinnamon with a bit of pumpkin in the background. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. The pumpkin comes through more, but not in a good way. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Meh.

This beer tastes artificial and contrived. I imagine a Budweiser being altered with Mrs. Smith's pie filling.

It came in a variety pack with some of my favorite flavors and I wasn’t too impressed. The only thing I enjoyed about it was the aroma. Had a good scent, but I wasn’t very impressed with the taste. It’s not the worst beer by any means, it’s just mediocre.

Not bad. Pours a nice orange. Aromas of nice sweet butter and pumpkin. Flavors fall short. No sweetness.. A bit bitter on the end. Average.

Surprisingly not cloudy. I expected a bit more haziness. Too much carbonation. Head evaporates quickly. Aroma was surprisingly citrusy...almost a spring/summer beer aroma. Very little pumpkin in the taste. Starts more bitter than it finishes.
