Pumpkin beers have been an American tradition since the pilgrims hit Plymouth Rock while Oktoberfest beers have been brewed in Germany since not long after Prince Ludwig got hitched in 1810. Now Terrapin is “carving” out our own special brew by combining these two great styles into a unique PUMPKINFEST beer...This Side Project has all the complex maltiness of a great Oktoberfest lager with the delicate spiciness of grandma’s fresh baked pumpkin pie.

Formerly Terrapin Side Project Pumpkinfest.

Bottled from warehouse package...obviously spiced but still very hoppy...not as bitter as other Terrapin beers....smoother, but still leaves a clean palette like an IPA

Spicy on the nose.Not a exactly a pumpkin pie taste, but more of a pumpkin cookie. Overall, a pleasant beer for the season.

Appearance was nice, head was nice, initial mouthfeel and palate were nice. HOWEVER. If you don't like tartness in you pumpkin ale, I suggest you look somewhere else.

"new label for this years. dark amber, almost red in color. nice to look at. aroma of all the usual spices and nothing that doesn’t belong. big malty undertones too from the festbier! nice touch. adds a bit of depth to the aroma and flavor. body solid as well...not a spiced beer atop a sissy yellow base. well done. thanks again Lou."

Pint at World of Beer, Cary. Good aroma sweet. Pie spice is the main feature. Minor pumpkin. Tad hazed brownish orange. Sweet flavor. Medium body, thick oily creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. It’s nice, as I said strong on the spice. Thick mouthfeel. I kind of like it. I’ll put it on my seasonal radar.
