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!

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

Tall 650 ml bottle that states: kettle hops magnum, aroma hops sterling. Pours golden amber with a nice white foam. Slight aroma of pumpkin. Initial flavor of malt and roasted pumpkin. Thick slightly slick mouth feel that leaves a pumpkin taste on the roof.

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

The aroma has a caramel malt, and more prominently, many spices. The taste is definitely sweet. The finish is malty. Itís an hour unusual beer, and a good one.

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.

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!

Smells like fall and happiness! Sugar, caramel, vanilla, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, allspice. Taste is pretty much the same. Smooth, sweet, velvety. Tastes like desert. Really awesome pumpkin beer!

Bottle. Clear orange pour with thin head. Aroma and flavor were pure pumpkin pie with some alcohol mixed in. Somewhat light body. Not bad, but not all that impressive either.
