Pours a relatively clear orange. Wonderful aroma of pie spice and brown sugar. Not surprisingly, tastes similarly, wonderful rich pie spice and brown sugar sweetness. The king of pumpkin beers.

Great pumpkin ale by ST. Everything I ever wanted from the style: huge on the spices; cinnamon, clove, nutmeg... some bitterness, medium-full mouthfeel, and some booze there as well, sweetness... Malty, without being too cloggy. Very nice stuff; would love to try a barrel aged version of this on rum or bourbon. :)

I wasnít sure about this one. Itís basically like drinking a pumpkin pie. Surprisingly, thatís not a terrible thing. Very sweet but with enough warming alcohol to give it a bit of depth. Itís a bit of a novelty, really, but I suppose thatís what these things are supposed to be.

draft. Aroma is amazing, spicy pie. gingery, overwhelming in a good way. Pours a clear dark copper color with a foamy head that dissipates quickly. Medium palate, nicely balanced body. Taste is spicy with a bitter edge, very drinkable. So many pumpkin beers are either gross or not at all pumpkin or spicy, but this one delivers every fall. Mmm. delicious.

Wow! It really takes a lot to impress me with certain beers, especially pumpkin beers. Dogfish makes a "Punkin" beer that is fantastic in itís own right, but this one delivers on a different level. Compared to the Dogfish "Punkin" ale, this has a lot smoother caramely note to it with a strong pumpkin taste. The Dogfish has a mixture of cinnamon, brown sugar and a bit more spicier notes that is fantastic, but the Southern Tier might be better. The aroma is FANTASTIC! The taste is out of this world! and the follow through is crisp and easy. Give a try, highly recommended.

Pours hazy orange with no head. Big pumpkin pie aroma. First sip is aggressive, and there might be a little bit too much going on in this beer, as some of the flavors seem to conflict with each other. The cloying, cinnamon predominance is hard for me to get used to, but it does get better with every sip, which saves this beer for me.

22 oz. bomber...poured a deep pumpkin orange with no head...aroma was of pumpkin spice, but also contained hints of cinammon, nutmeg, nuts, and vanilla...taste was a nice mix of sweetness, from the vanilla to go along with the pumpkins sorta of bitter taste...this could become a national substitute for pumpkin pie...great brew!
