Smells like apple pie, with the spices and ou pumpkin flavour you would expect. Pours clear orange and golden, slight head which quickly disappeared. Tastes rich, slightly sweet and creamy, pumpkin flavour starts to dissipate to spicies and bitterness. Medium body, lightly carbonated, dry finish. Well balanced. I would drink it every day, but perfect for October.

A pretty good beer considering so many breweries miss the mark with this style. Pours a lovely burnt orange. Aromas are fall spices, pumpkin pie and toast. Nice cinnamon and nutmeg flavours... Pumpkin.. A bitter toasty malt finish. Not the best.. And far from the worst pumpkin beer available.

Draft - Lots of ver the top pumpkin spice. Clear gold with a decent white head. Tastes as it smells, just way to spiced and unbalanced.

The hops and malt user makes this stand out just a tiny bit. Low to moderate spices over a good balanced base beer. Finished a touch sweet and a touch hoppy.

Copper orange body white head. Not much retention or lacing. Pumpkin spice aroma. Sweet grains. Taste is also sweet market with pumpkin spice. All of this is not bad but could be more pronounced.

Bottle. I had high hopes for this one, but it didn't quite measure up. Clear amber pour with not much head. Aroma is pretty clean caramel malt with pumpkin pie spices, light but nice. Flavour is like a watery amber ale with light pumpkin spice. Some nice pumpkin pie notes but just too light and subtle; doesn't compete with the really nice pumpkin brews. Meh.

The beer pours a translucent orange colour with a very thing head, and a ton of effervescence. The aroma is pumpkin pie, grains and some metallic notes. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is pumpkin, spices, grains, and weak hops.

DerWeg (1567) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Darkj goldy clear look small white rocky head dissipates. Aroma is good sweet malt fruit and pie spices. Taste is a blend of allspice-like phenolics, hops that are herbaceous-leafy and a bit of citrus. Some weizen-like clove lemon and vanilla, some baked apples and raisins. Balance and palate are right on the mark for an enjoyable pumpkin ale style.

Nice pumpkin ale, good amount of spice, but not over the top. Some pie crust flavors, cinnamon, and pronounced nutmeg. Pleasant pumpkin pie finish, with subtle spicing.
