This is not my kind of beer, but it is done well. Allspice, clove, and pumpkin make of the majority of the flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange with not much of a head. Pleasant aroma - mainly spice: cinnamon & nutmeg mostly. Medium body, spices are predominant, some sweetness in the background. The spices carry through in the finish with just a touch of warming alcohol. Excellent example! Search for this one!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden with a thin frothy head that dissipates completely. Aromas of pumpkin spice, Belgian yeast, dried apricot and banana. Flavors are pumpkin spice, banana and vanilla ice cream. Finishes with pumpkin bread, biscuit and a medium hop bite. Notable alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is light and peppery with lively carbonation. Overall, a very nice brew.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The color is a crisp copper with just a bit of cloud. Not much head sticking around. Lots of pumpkin and spice in the nose, but it doesn’t smell like the pumpkin pie in a can.
Fresh pumpkin and graham cracker hit first with the familiar nutmeg, clove, and allspice coming later. Not much from the hops and this ends up in a long, dry finish.
Might be the best pumpkin beer I’ve had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- cardamom, cloves, onion, cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat, pumpkin, bread
Appearance- hazy golden orange
Taste- pumpkin, pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg, grain
Palate- relatively thin this year, as compared with last, highly carbonated
Overall- A delicious take on the pumpkin beer. Definitely on par with Weyerbacher’s Imperial Pumpkin, if not better.

22oz bottle share compliments of Dave F., Thanksgiving 2013. Golden hue wth mostly diminishing white head, virtually no lacing. The pumpkin and spice hue punch you in the nose even before you pour this into a glass. Heavy pumpkin, spice & nutmeg greet your taste buds in the best way possible, the moderate average finish is just as enjoyable. I thought DFH Punkn was my favorite pumpkin beer, not anymore. Best spice/pumpkin beer I have had so far!

WOW! pour from a 22oz from PCC REDMOND. aroma is strong scents of a thanksgiving dinner desert. My grandfather made apple pie and pumpking pie and this brought back serious flashbacks from the aroma. I can literally taste the homeade pie in the whif.....first sip brought me further back to my grandparents house for turkey day. I find cinnamon and malty sweetness, but strong pumpkin flavors and mouthfeel of a true slice of pie. I haven’t rate this high in a long time but it is well deserved.
