4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle served into a Belgian beer goblet. Clear copper color with a foamy head that disappears quickly to a slim collar around the glass. Wonderful pumpkin and spices - including vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Very much reminded of a fresh baked pumpkin pie coming out of the oven. More pumpkin and spices in the taste follow the aroma. Thereís also a bready, chewy pie crust that goes along with the taste. Not terribly sweet, but very spicy and gingery. Med to full bodied with a chewy, bready crusty mouthfeel as well. Everything about this beer reminds me of a fresh baked pumpkin pie. The label suggests itís a halloween beer, but I think it works best as a desert beer for Thanksgiving dinner.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 bought 22oz at the southern tier brewing co’s attached pub. deep orange-amber color with an off-white head. gingerbread, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel (sounds like the ingredients to a pie, i know). not very strong alcohol taste. it’s the first pumpkin brew that’s ever impressed me, and it makes a delicious fall treat. bartender suggested putting whipped cream on top? not sure about that but it might be worth a try...

Bottle. Tasted during local beer tasting at grocery store. Potent pumpkin aroma. Pours orange without a lot of carbonation Taste: Very little spice and heavy on the pumpkin. Not my style. I prefer more spice and less pumpkin flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 2010 bottle. One of my favorite beers. It basically smells like pumpkin pie. Huge notes of pumpkin, pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some cloves. The flavor is more of the same, and beautifully sweet and pumpkiny. Awesome, awesome beer.

Color dorado anaranjado con media espuma.Aroma a calabaza dulce, especias y frutos secos muy logrado.Al paladar muy dulce un poco demasiado pero muy sabrosa con cuerpo, sabor intenso a calabaza con notas florales, ideal para tomarla en invierno y navidad.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Amazing pumpkin beer! Pours light and packs a punch of flavor. The nose alone is spectacular. You can smell the entire pumpkin pie from fruit to crust to the cream! I want drink one of these every week. Very complex and goes down too easy. Yummy

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is transparent, light golden amber with minimal head. Aroma is light malts, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon and all-spice. Taste is all pumpkin. Very, very intense pumpkin taste. Itís not a bad taste, but it is a bit overwhelming. You have to really like pumpkin to love this beer. Unfortunately, thatís not me.

Draft. A deep gold color. Smells like a thanksgiving day pumpkin pie with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is different. Actually taste like a cross between pumpkin pie and banana nut bread! Excellent!

Orange. Aroma is buttery, mandarin orange. Taste has less butter but still very present. Some grapefruit bitterness, orange. Interesting but not all that good.

Spice level overpowers the pumpkin flavor. Good aroma but again, spice notes overpower everything else.
