This beer has a fantastic flavor and finishes nicely. It has a nice amber coloration, although the head leaves something to be desired; it is nonexistent. Overall, this is a fantastic seasonal. I would say it’s worth the rather high price tag!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dense & vibrant copper-amber color with a thin layer of bubbles resting softly on top, no enough to be called a "head". Aroma with heavy notes of pumpkin spice, cinnamon bread, toasted malts, nutmeg, & I get a very, very light hint of vanilla. Touch of earthiness from the hops, too. Taste is more of the same; the pumpkin spice explosion you’d expect, nutmeg, cinnamon, a little clove. Perhaps some ginger, too, but nutmeg seems to be the dominant spice in this beer. Yeasty & toasted, baked bread finish, a little astringent at times. A decent pumpkin beer, but I don’t know why people flip their ship over this beer’s release each year. I mean, it’s decent, but not the first pumpkin beer I’d ever reach for.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper orange color with a half inch of white foam that settles to a cream edge head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice profile; cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and mild sweet pumpkin and vanilla. Flavor is pumpkin pie in a glass: same as above with buttery crust throughout. Alcohol is perfectly masked. Thin to medium bodied, spicy carbonation, buttery complex finish.

Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, old fruits. Flavor is very herbal, lots and lots of cinnamon, some pumpkin flavors. Like most other pumpkin beers, this is very herbal. Kinda like it, long herbal aftertaste. Overall a very herbal forward beer, as expected, quite okay.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I don’t get the hype behind this beer, it sits on shelves in DFW still. Poured a clear dark gold almost brown color with off-white head. Some pumpkin pie spice and another aroma on it that makes my gag, just not good; same for the palate. The bottle was pretty much a drain pour. Did not like this one at all.

650ml shared bottle @ home from De Molen beershop, 2013 edition. Hazy pumpkin orange color, nearly flat white head. Aroma very strong sweetish apple pie and coconut smell, flavor is pumpkin, syrup, slightly hoppy, coconut, caramel. Taste medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness, hint of vegetable sourness. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, fruity-sweetish finish with some hoppy bitterness. Refreshing, easy to drink, very interesting, delicious dessert beer.
