Jakebra crush. Aight, I have definitely had worse beers. That being said, not a fan of the Pumking. The smell is offensive at first, then you get used it, then it’s offensive again. Taste is pie crust, sourness, and dry dryness that leaves your tongue stuck to the roof of your mouth. Very disappointed.

Smells like soap. Too much carbonation. Better than the average beer but not something I would recommend.

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

Man, this smells good. But good lord I cannot stomach this beer. Graham cracker, marshmallow, vanilla. The onslaught on my palate is less the sweet taste and more the ridiculous vanilla aromatics although the sweetness is still there. I would have poured this but I refuse on principle to pour any beer down the drain.

extremely strong aroma... hazelnut, artificial vanilla, nutmeg, some impressions of pumpkin. similar qualities in the taste but add an overbearing sweetness. the alcohol is hidden very well, but this was entirely too sweet and purfumey for me. the aroma became almost nauseating. they simulated the pumpkin aroma/flavor well with the spices, but went way overboard. an interesting experiment, but hardly drinkable.

Bottled. Clear dark golden coloured with amedium sized white head. Very sweet with notes of herbs, perfume, xmas spices, cookies and pumpkin? Not good.

I will have to try this one again. Maybe I got a bad bottle. Aroma made me wince, flavor was anything but pumpkin. Color was a very light copper. I am shocked that this beer scored so high!
I will have to try this beer again.

From bottle, no 12 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours slight hazy orange with a lacing head. Heavy heavy cardemomme aroma, slight cinnamon on top. Flavour is strangely spiced, reminds me of baking powder. Has a slight soapy flavour/feel. Ends with subdued ginger note. Overspiced and soapy. Yet it isnít terrible.
