Bottled. Orange color small white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is tons of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, whipped cream, maple syrup. Taste is pumpkin pie, lots of cinnamon. A lot like cream soda.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a nice white head that produces a reasonable amount of lacing and decent head retention. The aroma is almost exactly like pumpkin pie filling. There is a hint of graham cracker hidden in there. Lots of cinnamon, all spice, ginger, all the typical seasoning you would think of when thinking of pumpkin pie. Smells wonderful! OH MY GOD! I figured this beer would taste a bit different than the aroma but no! It tastes exactly how it smells. All the typical pumpkin pie flavors you are used to with just a very slight hint of bitterness. This tastes wonderful!!! The palate is a touch too thick for me, but it fits the beer well. This is amazing!! Well done! Tops for fall seasonals!

Iím not a Pumpkin Beer kind of guy, if you know what I mean... but I am a guy who likes a quality beer that is extra-ordinary, such as this. Spicy, caramel and of course pumpkin.

Pours copper with small off-white head thatís gone a bit too fast. Aroma is lots of fresh pumpkin with just enough spice. Flavor is similar, but sublime. This is another one thatís difficult for me to qualify. Itís just exactly what I want it to be.

Aroma of a sugar cinnamon cookie: very unique and strikingly noticeable during the entire drink. Taste was somewhat ho-hum but went down easily and didnít end on a bitter note. This beer was a bit disappointing but mostly because I didnít notice any pumpkin flavor at all. Great marketing for this beer: the folks at Southern Tier obviously care about all aspects of their product

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 Poured medium-orange, slightly hazy with very little head. Pie crust and caramel in the aroma -- not the spice bomb I expected. Subtle nutmeg and pumpkin in the flavor which is otherwise dominated by pie crust. Boozy finish took me slightly by surprise. A little thin on the palate. Very tasty and warming!

Last tried from the bottle... but Iím going to rate it off the tap from the Trion.
I canít tell you how important it is that you try this from the tap... I loved it when I had it at the Trion, went to my store and bought our last bottle a few months ago. I opened it last night, and... GOD! The spices were just overwhelming, and the finish almost choked me. Please try it from the tap next year, or maybe a really fresh bottle... the difference in this instance is NIGHT and DAY!

Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with thin white head which goes quickly. Pumpkin pie with cinnamon in the nose, almost candy like. Flavor is an explosion of pumpkin and cinnamon with other spice and a touch of caramel, slightly malty base, could not really realize the hops at all. Very thin on the palate, but still needs to be taken slowly. Decent

If youíve never tried this beer you should not be allowed to say you donít like pumpkin beers. The nose is huge and sweet like pumpkin cream pie sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste mirrors that and you feel like your drinking liquid pumkin pie covered in whip cream.
