22oz. Bottle, pours an amber orange, with a very light white head. Smells just like a pumpkin pie which follows thru to the pallet. I thought it also tasted better as it warmed a bit. This beer is one of the better pumpkin beers I've tried and definitely succeeds at what they were attempting to do, I'm just not a fan of anything with a hint of cloves. Ones great to start the season, but a second is a bit much.

2015: Brown color, light carbonation. Smells of fresh baked pumpkin pie. The spices take the forefront of this beer. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. The pumpkin is not hidden or a background note like in many inferior pumpkin beers. This beer isnít afraid to be pumpkin pie in a glass. So, if you like pumpkin pie: there ya go. If not: Donít even bother with this beer. I love pumpkin pie. :)

Received as a gift. Aroma: Pumpkin pie, apricots, cloves, cinnamon(?), raisins. Beautiful golden-orange, clear. Pillowy pale yellow head , not much lacing. Taste follows the aroma plus a little bit of bubble gum. Definitely sweet, not much hops "bite". Flavors improve as this beer warms a bit. Alcohol is concealed nicely. Silky mouthfeel, aftertaste clings a little. Iím generally not a big fan of "fruity" beers, but Iíd make an exception in this case. Somehow, it works. I liked it more than I thought I would.

Poured from a bottle into a chalice.
Aroma- Big ginger snaps/pumpkin pie notes
Appearance- Orange/gold color, minimal head, no lacing.
Taste- major ginger snaps notes, bready malts.
Palate- very easy drinking for the alcohol.
Overall- elite pumpkin beer, tastes like straight up autumn.

This beer really exceeded my expectations. Thought it the beer flavors would be significantly masked but that is not the case. Strong spice aroma with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and all things that make up pumpkin spice. Pumpking flavor stong on the front of the beer, followed by brown ale characteristics, and finally spice flavors. Beer clarity is perfect. Overall this beer makes you dream of the fall.

That is REALLY good. I like pumpkin beers, but this is one of the best around. There is a ton of spice and it tastes like the aftertaste after eating a piece of pumpkin pie. I like this brewery, and this beer is no exception. Cheers!

Good grief Charlie Brown! I canít believe the aromas that are creeping out of my glass. If this only has purťed pumpkin in it then I must say kudos because this smells and tastes in part of the finest pumpkin pie spice that I could ever imagine indulging in. Itís almost overwhelming to try to distinguish what else is going on here and I really donít care! That said, very sweet pumpkin and malty aroma that overshadow whatever hop aromas may be present. Beautiful orange amber color, clear, little carbonation. Taste is pumpkin...go figure...but I can tell there is some medium caramel malt sweetness in there and some nice resiny hop bitterness to balance. Sweet and silky on attack. Medium body. Moderate carbonation, creamy and sticky texture and a lovely lengthy well balanced finish that lets the hops do their job. Iím a big fan of Southern Tier and canít believe how many great beers they have in their Imperial series alone! This is no exception. Definitely get a few of these and donít forget to stash one away for Thanksgiving, because you will be the hit of the party and this is one to truly be thankful for!

Grabbed this for a beer tasting just for something different. Was pretty amazed. Tall glass of pumpkin pie. I even got the hint of whipped cream at the end. I couldnít drink these in multiples, but great to share.

The name says it all. Beautiful orange pour with almost no head. Low carbonation, very silky on the palate. Tastes like pumpkin pie. Excellent.
