4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A new take on the pumpkin ale. Cinnamon aroma of the pie and taste of the pie throughout. Itís an unusual flavor for an ale. I would buy it again next fall.

22-oz bottle. Thin head disappeared quickly. Aroma is straight pumpkin pie. Wow, Iíve head a lot of pumpkin ales but never one that tasted like this. Fantastic warming and comforting undertone - basically, doesnít taste just like pie filling, but pie crust as well. Iíve read that pumpkin isnít important in the flavoring of a pumpkin ale, but I think the pumpkin comes through here. Complex, sweet, uncommon.

Bottle. Clear amber with no head. Pumpkin, spices, and vanilla. Not bad for a pumpkin beer.

Great aroma! Smells of pumpkin and caramel. Mouthfeel was weird, but welcoming carbonation. Pumpkin was strong an powerful, caramel on the taste was weird.

Sweet spicty aroma. Pours a beautiful pumpkin orange. Nicely carbonated. Sweet taste with definite pumpkin aftertaste. Alcohol nicely hidden. This beer is a real treat. One pint was enough for me with the ABV and the sweetness being what it is. I will definitely buy another bomber.

Such a total pumpkin pie aroma, the vegetal pumpkin as well as the bready crust. A lot of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, all pumpkin pie smells. Taste mirrors the very vegetal pumpkin with a lot of spices too. Some sweetness, but really just an overall dazzling blast of pumpkin pie. Quite delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy orangish copper with a fine head and good lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, some other spices, and brown sugar. Reminds me of Autumn and the trees changing colors. Really digging this aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet but I can taste some bitterness which makes me think of hops although I couldn’t pick any up on the aroma. Palate is medium bodied, very smooth, moderate carbonation, and leaves a little aftertaste which makes a second sip inevidable. Alcohol is well hidden but is slightly warming a few seconds after swallowing. Expectations exceeded.

Light straw pour ith minimal white head. Nose is sweet with ginger and nutmeg. Immediate mild resins hop yields to a potpourri of flavor. Candy sweet malt mixes with dominant nutmeg, brown sugar, French toast. Ends with subtle cinnamon and marshmallow. Best pumpkin brew Iíve had. Cheers to my sensual friend FunkyBrewster for this nectar.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The nose here is sweet pumpkin pie, with a waft of nutmeg and clove. As sweet as it is, there are vegetal notes here that balance it out. Slightly acidic. A dessert beer in all senses.
