This harvest fall brew is excellent in all aspects. It does a good job making the nose smell like fresh floral hops, sweet buttered popcorn, and hints of bubblegum. As you drink it you can taste the fall spice and it is nector from the PumpKing. It is full of hops and malt with that same popcorn and bubblegum flavor stuck in your nose and palate for the entier duration of the beer. Overall it has a great flavor balance and great amount of carbonation.

If you like pumpkin pie than this is for you. Thick liquid pie in a bottle. Aroma of pumpkins and cinnamon. Thick chewy pumpkin and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla.

11/29/07 fluffy/dimply very light tan creamy head and very light clear amber body. golden at edges. aroma is pumpkin pie and crust. not too sweet as I was afraid of, and also smells like the inside of a jack-o-lantern. mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, then goes tingly and spicy with the carbonation. more aroma of allspice and cardomon. flavor is spicy and malty, with lots of canned pumpkin. a little bit of caramel malt in the background, and a hint of sour grassyness, but not too much. finish is a little dry and raw pumpkin. very good but I still like the Weyerbacher better. more sweetness kicks in as the beer gets warmer. good with sharp cheddar.

Pumpkin orange with a thin white head that’s gone. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, this thing smells like pumpkin pie. Taste of pumpkin, spices, whip cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and mild alcohol. Finishes up pretty spicy. Pretty good for a pumpkin beer.

Very golden color with minimal head. Smells like a sliver of pumpkin pie with fresh nutmeg grated on top. Very sweet with a whipped cream finish taste. Best pumpkin beer I have had yet!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours a golden amber with a very little head. I thought this would look sexier, but the smell makes up for it a bit. I get a bit of hops on the first whiff, but then the pumpkin and spice hit--pretty much exactly like pumpkin pie, with crust and all. I get a lot of nutmeg with a little mandarin orange in the background. no clue where that came from. Anyways, the taste is pretty much the same pumpkin pie taste that finishes with a stale hops taste. A sweet, malty backbone lingers after it’s all swallowed, along with some cinnamon. It’s silky, medium-bodied with mild carbonation. This was about what I expected, but the stale hops on the end really turned me off. Had they tasted fresher, or if this had just bypassed the hops and finished smoothly into the sweet maltyness, this would have been much better. Still impressed, however.

Bottle at DuffmanSWs beer tasting. Pours a clear golden with a half inch white head. Holy hell, this smells exactly like a big chunk of pumpkin pie with a scoop of whipped cream on top. EXACTLY. There is no other way to describe it. Flavor is Not as intense as the aroma. very malty and bready, not alot of bitterness, somewhat mild for such a big beer. Does not seem like 9%. Mouthfeel is chewy and carbonation is generous.

Botlle thanks to beerbill. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice and pie crust, with vanilla wafer. Smooth medium body. Incredible flavor mirrors the aroma with authentic pumpkin flesh, pie spice and vanilla on a bready, buttery pie crust malty base. Great pumpkin beer.
