i was really dissapointed in this.There is something strange lingering in the flavor I am not sure what it is.The pour was beautiful.The nose was of pumpkin pie spice with cinnamon and nutmeg.The flavor was pumpkin pie and spices up front but the back end and finish had something strange killing this beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of kmweaver. Slightly hazy, pale amber golden with a small, off-white head. Very oddly spiced nose. Medium body with sweet caramel and then a broad palette of spices with cardamom and cinnamon sticking out. Subdued bitterness. This is....odd....in a way thatís really hard to get friendly with. 301107

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Orange-copper body with a small white sudsy head diminishing to a light ring. Aroma is interesting - quite spicy and ginger biscuity essence, some burnt/toasty hints as well. Thick resiny body with orange and gingerbread pumpkin type flavours along with some light caramel. Has a strange dimension that is difficult to really pinpoint. I don’t know, i have mixed feelings about it.
I’ll have to revisit.

Last beer rated at the Richmond "industry" gathering. Light amber. Aroma of pumpkin pie and its crust, surprisingly. Flavor was ginger, cinnamon, faint clove. Frankly, perfect pumpkin pie. Not always my favorite style, but I really like this one.

Thanks goes to my brother-in-law. Clear thick pumpkin color. Aroma of pumpkin, and nutmeg. The taste was out of this world. Taste just like the best pumpkin pie in liquid form. Pie crust, nutmeg,light cinnimon,brown sugar, and of course fresh pumpkin. Solid beer. Iím gonna put this on the list every fall.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Bottle. Almost opaque orange pour with white film on top. Aroma is nice, lots of pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, nutmeg, and honey graham crackers. Very little carbonation. Flavor is bready / yeasty malt, lots of pumpkin, slightly sweet, and a little clove in the finish. Really tastes like a fresh pumpkin. Good example of the style.

First beer of the night on thanksgiving, and certainly one of the best. The actual pumpkin flavor is stronger than in any beer Iíve had, and at the same time this doesnít go overboard with spices like the Weyerbacher or many others do. Crispy and lightly sweet with a very clean yeast, rich and extremely drinkable for 9%. Hell yes! Southern Tier has another winner with this beer. Looking forward to drinking more next year.

Bottle. Dark orange pour with a white head. Aroma of graham crackers, cinnamon, brown sugar, light pumpkin, caramel malt and a bit of clove and nutmeg. Flavors of buttery malt, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pie spices. Medium body, sweet/malty/spicy with a spicy/sweet finish. Most pumpkin pie like beer Iíve had, awesome with dessert.
