4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle - Sherlock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Lightly hazed, orange-yellow body with a rip-roarin’, overflowing, all-foam head. As the bottle continues to slowly but steadily belch out a copious amount of suds. Talk about the Craft Beer Explosion!
Smell: Shaved pumpkin flesh, minutely vegetal with ground spices, faint caramel-glazed bready and a squirt of lemon juice.
Taste: Tangy pumpkin and bready malts with a light, fleeting sweetness giving rise to citrus as well as nutmeg and cinnamon spice. A light developing sourness ties it together nicely as the heavy sudsiness leads you to the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Highly carbonated, with the effervescence never seeming to cease.
Overall: A bit of a pumpkin sour, likely something I would have expected out of Wicked Weed’s Funkatorium. I certainly don’t believe this is was intended by the brewers, but, like a free set of all-weather radials, it was a welcome surprise.

Bottle shared for Thanksgiving. Clear amber color, medium beige head. Aroma of typical spice and subtle citrus. Taste is very lightly tart and light to medium spice. Tasty enough, and a popular choice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looked outstanding, with a tall frothy head over a clear orange base, but something soured this sample. Not to the point of being undrinkable but it was much more "pumpkin sour" than "pumpkin pie".

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very thick and fairly persistent ivory head. Malty aroma has a strong cinnamon overtone and a firm vegetable note. Yep - definitely pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, perfect from Samhain to New Years. Hell, perfect any time of year. Flavor is like liquid pumpkin pie, pumpkin plus cinnamon, as well as a malty undertone and a snip of cloves. Texture has average viscosity, but some good fizz. Any time is a good time for pumpkin beer!

Pours an orange-yellow-golden color with a short-lived antique white head. Belgian yeast and outter orange peel nose. Full-bodied with carbonation scrub. Taste approximates the nose there is some pumpkin picked up in the flavor.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Orange-colored, medium carbonation, balanced taste with little spice and nice pumpkin. Overall decent, but wildly over-priced, considering the abv.

Very well balanced, medium body with a medium frothy head. I like the light sweetness, medium spice, and easy drinkability. Probably the 3rd best pumpkin brew out of the last 10 I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange, loose white head. Smells kind of citrusy hoppy, which is unusual for a pumpkin beer. Plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg and allspice, too. Flavor is spicy, but not muddled - each flavor pops. there is also some hops in the finish
