2007-11-30, bottle at PapsÝís Blind Tasting, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Hazy golden color. Very strong aroma of cookies, spiced with a lot of sweet cinnamon. Medium malty body and sweetness, again with the very strong (sweet cinnamon) cookie character. Odd but pleasant.

Golden color. Crispy cookie aroma, surprising (with delicate cinnamon). Good body, malty, with a cookie flavor (speculoos, Joris would say). As a beer itís a bit off the track, but itís quite good. Smooth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big lasting off white head on a deep golden body; Very special nutty, cardamom peel nose; Soft texture a little fatty body, bitter and sweet; Very aromatic finish, lots of cardamom seed aroma with a late bitter bite. Very special beer, somehow the aroma and texture seems very artificial and not to well fitting to a beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Bottle, courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours just like the deScription, deep copper, small, off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon, caramel, clove and ginger. Flavor is more of the same with some sugar cookie dough thrown in. This beer really came into itís own as it warmed up to room temperature. Very well done pumpkin beer. Iíve got one in the cellar, Iíll see if time will work itís magic on this one.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From bottle, no 12 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours slight hazy orange with a lacing head. Heavy heavy cardemomme aroma, slight cinnamon on top. Flavour is strangely spiced, reminds me of baking powder. Has a slight soapy flavour/feel. Ends with subdued ginger note. Overspiced and soapy. Yet it isnít terrible.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Poured a very clear golden orange color with a thin white head. Very nice-looking hue. Interesting aroma in that fresh pumpkin flesh is discernible over the traditional nutmeg and cinnamon spices. The spices are noticable, but the freshly-opened gourd aroma is unexpected and pleasing. The spices come out a bit more in the taste, but a nice warm toastiness reminiscent of pumpkin seeds is present as well. The finish is spiced and warm. A welcome new take on the pumpkin beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
#12 [Blind tasting session @ Papsoe 30-11-2007] Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare lacework. Light cloudy golden color. Cinnamon cookie, sweet Christmas spice, cardamom, grain, caramel, cookie dough, toffee. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor. Sweet cookie dough finish. Strange experience, but not bad. Wow it turned out to be pumpkin in this beer. And no one guess it. Then again we donít celebrate Halloween in Denmark and are not accustom to using pumpkin in any kind of food.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Poured a clear, brighter orangey-golden with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma was most decidedly chewy and pie-ey.. malty graham crackers and nutmeg, pumpkin meat and cinnamon.. alcohol served to amplify the pie, which was quite delightful! The flavor was very malty and spicy, and unfortunately messy.. pumpkin meat, graham cracker, cinnamon, and nutmeg all fought for attention.. warm boozy notes are left at the finish along with more spicage.. tasty at first, but hard to drink after a while. Chewy and thick on the palate with boatloads of herbal bitterness and pumpkin pie spices around the edges.. creamy carbonation.. good, but just too cloying at several points. Overall a tasty treat.
