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.

timfoolery (1125) - California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle from Justin. Aroma was more pumpkin pie spice than the flavor. This one was definitely past it's prime. I'll have to wait to try it again next year. Ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2771) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2015
Tap at the brewery on release day 2015. Light sweetish fruity nose, light spice, some residual yeast. Light copper color with a creamy tan head. Gentle pumpkin initial flavor, light toasty maltiness, some spice (cinnamon?), and a small cola-like note in mid and final. Thin-medium body. I’m not a real fan of pumpkin beers, but this one is light flavored, and the pumpkin note is gentle on the tongue (which suits me fine). Tasty stuff.

Amber color with big head. Fall spices and subtle pumpkin on nose. Would gace appreciated a bigger aroma. Medium body, smooth nouthfeel. Sweet malts mainly in taste with some fall spices which linger on the tongue. One of the more forgettable pumpkin beers.

Tessic (954) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
This pumpkin poured a med/Amber colour with a nice tan, foamy head. Scents include spice, pumpkin and sweet malt with a touch of ripe fruit. First swig was a little watery with flavours of pumpkin and hops. Finish was bitter with spice flavour lingering.

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle: Copper-amber body, completely opaque & almost muddy. Small, gray head fades quickly to a thin collar. Aroma is heavily spiced; nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a bit of toasted malt. Flavor is basically the same, heavy on the nutmeg & cinnamon with undertones of allspice, clove, white pepper. Thick, malty base, finishes with notes of heavy caramel sweetness, toast, toffee, & a bit of chunky yeast. Slightly sticky body. Decent at best.

This is a great pumpkin beer that has all of the spices and pumpkin bits. Good finish. Dark color.

beerbomb (213) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2015
older bottle-aroma is cinnamon, a little clove and nutmeg, pumpkin juice, and nice dark bready bock background-balanced as if it was baked together--flavor is full bodied bock with cinnamon, smoother spices, and vegetal background - if you think you’ll like a good bock with smooth, mild, toasty spices, this is it...

kaser (4181) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Orange pour from bottle at home. Very nice aroma - pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. I think held this too long. Tastes a little off after 4-5 months - still can tell it is a decent brew

BillWyce (851) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours clear orange-amber with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, specifically pumpkin and nutmeg, maybe allspice too. Medium body with a mild finish. Flavor matches the aroma, with notes of pumpkin and the above-noted spices.
