GCBF 2010. Dark orange amber. Rich spicy pumpkin aroma, heaps of nutmeg, cinnamon, a little clove. Cakey, bready, spicy palate. The best of the pumpkin brews at the fest, and the best I’ve had in a while.

Tap. Spicy cookiedough aroma. Cloudy brown, offwhite lace. Chewy fruity, spices are wellbalanced. Slightly weird, but a quite pleasant dessert actually. Probably first pumpkin beer I enjoyed.

Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours deep amber with a beige head. Very strong pumpkin aroma with nutmeg and cinnamon as well. Flavour is quite spicy pumpkin and nutmeg. The body is quite hard-edged, but this wins points for potency.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
OK, I can’t stop staring at the bartenders tits... yes. There they are again... ack. Murky deep amber colour with a thin, tight tan head. Why has the pumpkin not jumped out more? Seems very subdued. Slight fruit, pumpkin pie spice without the pumpkin, mild licorice, roses? A touch odd but decent. The taste pretty good: hops and dirty spices, pumpkin, nutmeg, wheat, sour, watery spices that might close in on a pepper flavour. A bit rough on the edges, mild carb, long spicy finish with mild hops. More of a spiced English brew than a pumpkin based one.

[growler, filled at brewpub]
Herbal/spiced aroma with a good amount cinnamon and liquorice and--very inviting. Almost clear orange-brown wth some beige foam on top. Nicely balanced sweet, lotus root malt with a dry, pumpkin pie spice, and a very low, liquorice bitterness. Also a touch of sourness. Medium to light body, medium carbonation, slight tang in the finish. Very good.
