COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Big sample at Durham WBF. Pours bright orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of pumpkin fruit... not just pumpkin pie spices, though those are there, too. Low on the nutmeg for a pumpkin beer, which is good in my opinion. Higher in the cinnamon, and ends with a spicy dry finish. Dare I say that I might actually buy a bottle of this? Probably so, which is rare for me and a pumpkin beer.

22 oz. bottle purchased from Greens Liquor Store. Dark brown transparent beer. Looks pretty good, but doesn’t leave that much head. Nice pungent spice cinnamon aroma. Nice pumpkin aroma with plenty of spices. Nice cinnamon spice flavor. It is not as thick as I would like it to be, but the cinnamon flavor is rather nice. Cinnamon flavor really develops, but again the beer is too damn thin for me. I couldn’t find the ABV on the bottle. Not exactly a top-notch spice/herb/vegetable beer, but fairly decent. I will say the cinnamon flavor is unmatched. I love the spices. Overall, fairly decent spice beer.

22oz bottle. clear orange under a medium sized beige head. quick release...terrapin is really turning out the side project series quickly now. aroma of pumpkin and spices. a nicely spiced pumpkin beer. typical pumpkin flavors which makes me focus on the palate. nice and smooth and easily drinkable. not overly spiced or sweet. a nice rendition of this style. good job.

Cask. Poured a deep hazy pumpkiny orange with a nice big head and plenty of lace. The aroma is really well spiced, like a pumpkin pie, though not overly sweet. The taste is also well spiced, with a good amount of pumpkin and malt sweetness. A very well balanced taste and aroma. Not too much pumpkin and an appropriate amount of spice. It’s good to see a pumpkin done well. Mouth is smooth and well carbonated. Overall, a solid fall ale that will hopefully make an appearance every autumn.
