Why oh why isnít this available all fall/winter???? This is the best. Not too pumpkiny. Not over-the-top spices. Great bready notes highlight the pie crust with a tinge of a burnt edge. It rocks on tap and ainít too shabby out of a bottle either.

Aroma is your mom?s pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. Pours medium copper, thin head that dissipates rather quickly for such a hearty, sweet beer. This is liquid pumpkin pie. Not LIKE pumpkin pie, it IS pumpkin pie. Sweet, clove, nutmeg, mace, cinnamon, vanilla, cream, pumpkin. Slight bitter finish that balances the sweetness up front. I buy the bombers by the case, because I know its a limited production each season, and I never want to be without it.

This beer has a fantastic flavor and finishes nicely. It has a nice amber coloration, although the head leaves something to be desired; it is nonexistent. Overall, this is a fantastic seasonal. I would say itís worth the rather high price tag!

My first tasting and by far the best pumpkin ale that these lips have embraced.

Singly, the one brew which I look forward to the release of every single year. A must try.

Pours an orange opaque. Immediately you have the smell of ginger cookies. Flavor is the same with a little vanilla sweetness. Most likely the best of the pumpkin brews!

Good dessert pumpkin beer, emphasis on the dessert. Not heavy but quite "sweet" tasting. Great nose, very little head almost resembling a cider. Smells like creamed corn and brown sugar. Pairs well flaky buttery crackers (itís the crust to the pie!). Overall not my favorite pumpkin beer but pretty good.

The beer that made me love pumpkin beers. The nose is sweet yet subtle. Spice, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon. So much goodness. Not overly sweet, yet mysteriously strong. This will catch up with you if you donít count your ounces!

Poured very nicely into a pint glass. Deep golden orange color, very reminiscent of an actual pumpkin. Sweet aroma, reminds of pumpkin pie. First taste on palate was sweet and pumpkin pie-ish, however this was soon overwhelmed by the alcohol. By the third sip I found this to be undrinkable as the booziness completely took over. The watery consistency wasnít a help either--I expected something a little thicker to support the flavor. This is definitely not representative of the style and I will not be drinking it again.

I had last years Pumking and I thought it was the best pumpkin beer Iíd ever had. Iíve been waiting a year to have it and wow what happened? Last yearís beer was creamy, almost like drinking eggnog and dark golden like pumpkin pie. This year the beer tastes thin without that creaminess I remembered although that graham cracker crust aroma still prevails. My wife watched me pour the beer into my glass and asked if it was the same beer...Matt & Phinn I want what you made last year
