2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured very nicely into a pint glass. Deep golden orange color, very reminiscent of an actual pumpkin. Sweet aroma, reminds of pumpkin pie. First taste on palate was sweet and pumpkin pie-ish, however this was soon overwhelmed by the alcohol. By the third sip I found this to be undrinkable as the booziness completely took over. The watery consistency wasnít a help either--I expected something a little thicker to support the flavor. This is definitely not representative of the style and I will not be drinking it again.

I think this was the worst pumpkin beer that I have tasted. I had trouble finshing the bottle. I would not buy this beer again.

From 22 Oz bottle, pours amber, is one of the most clear beers I have seen. The aroma is most bewitching, everything fall: nutmeg, maple, wood, cinnamon. Light bodied. Taste is lacking for the spicy nose, but it does have a clean pumpkin flavor with a bitter finish.

66cl Bottle at Sloshfest. Clear golden orange colour, white head. Overwhelming aroma of spices like nutmeg, mace, cinnamon, sweet pumpkin, pie crust. Flavour is sweet, all the above mentioned spices, pumpin-pie crust, earthy from all the spice, bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. Over the top imo.

Eh. Tinny taste. Some pumpkin. Some spice. Not enough pumpkin to accept this ale as good.

In short: Overly sweet spicy pumpkin ale. Gross.
How: Mtl-crew Halloween-tasting session. Bottle from Rastacouere
The look: Clear golden-orange body with a small white head
In long: Crunchy white-sugar and brown-sugar blend. Apple and cinnamon muffin. Spiciness focus in on cinnamon, too much so. Barley and ginger bread cookies in the back. I didnít even pick any pumpkins? Sickening after a single glass. And to think I was really looking forward to this one, the supposedly best pumpkin beer everÖ Southern Tier Pumpeasant..

If you took water, yeast, wheat, a powdered coffee creamer and orange dye and let ferment for a couple months you will appear to have a pumpkin ale that lacks real pumpkin.

On tap at Buckeye Beer Engine. I’m not much of a fan of pumpkin ales, but at least they’re generally drinkable. This one lacked balance, in my book. Too much malty sweetness with not enough backbone for my tastes Aroma was nice, though. This was a 3-4 sipper. Couldn’t make it through the rest of the pour.

Pour deep hazy amber, with a small white head.
This aroma is haha funky. So packed with pumping, that everything else is overpowered. Perhaps some cinnamon, cornflour. I donít know. Cookie dough??
Taste is sweet. Quite sweet. Tastes like a pie comming out fresh from the oven.
Medium body, with a flat carb.
