4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Cloudy orange beer with a nice offwhite head. Pumpkin aroma, sweetish, nutmeg, toffee, caramel, salty, woody, juniper berries, cedar, herbal, some nuts. Grassy flavor, pumpkin, salty, nutmeg, hazelnuts, sawdust, cinnamon, ginger, woody, cedar, juniper berries, caramel notes, pumpkin, herbal, fruity notes and with some hazelnuts. Amazing, I honestly never thought I’d give a pumpkin beer a rating like this. But this is so good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ De Molen. Reddish orange color. Pumpkin, potatoe and mango in the aroma. Potatoe and pumpkin in the sweet, but also flowery and slightly perfumed flavor. Chichory bitterness in teh aftertaste. IMO is beer and pumpkin not a happy marriage.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Orange/golden coloured. Light brown head. Aroma is spiced and full of pumpkin. A touch marzipan and sugar. Flavour again is full of spice and pumpkin. Is a bit fruity and to some extend reminds me of Danish brown cookies. Wierd. Medium bodied. Has a dry and spicy end. As said very weird beer, and not really one I would go back to.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s copper colored and the head is small and creamy. The aroma has strong notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, brown Christmas cookies (Danish speciality) and sweet bread. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, pumpkin, a peppery bite (ginger perhaps), sweet bread and alcohol. This must be an either hate or love beer, but well crafted.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of pumpkin, pecan, carmel, earthiness and spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of pumpkin, pecan, carmel, spice and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering pumpkin finish. Easily the best Pumpkin beer I’ve had!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22-oz bottle sent my way via trade with jah noth. Pours harvest orange with a small, fizzy, off-white head, somewhat diminishing with spare, if any, lacing. Somewhat disappointing on the lack of head or lace. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, cereal, straw, biscuit), average hops (grass, herbs), average yeast (dough, leaves) with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and brown sugar. There is an interesting mix of lightly buttered biscuits and sugar cookies that permeates above all the typical "pumpkin beer" spices that is rather intriguing and inviting in a raw dough kind of way. The pumpkin is not too much nor too little yet is much more present than most pumpkin beers. Medium bodied, aided by the uncharacteristically high alcohol content, alcoholic texture, average carbonation that fizzles away rapidly, and a chalky yet dry finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. I am quite taken by this pumpkin beer as it seems to nail the one thing others cannot - it gives the pumpkin flavor along with spices (typical) but also adds a freshly baked crust to the aroma and flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from erzbierschof.ch - hazy dark orange colour with a little foam left; a solid aroma of pumpkins and cane sugar; sweet and full-bodied, subtle carbonation; some residual sweetness with long notes of carotts and pumpkin - well... why not ?
