2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear orange pour with a small head that fades to a thick ring. Aroma is much closer to apple cider than pumpkin. Green apple, light cinnamon, jolly ranchers, and clove. Tastes like sugary apple cider. Light spiced. Moderately tart. Mouthfeel is gritty. This is like a below average cider.

Brother in law bought this one for Thanksgiving having no idea is was not your run of the mill pumpkin beers. I liked is enough, he did not. The light effervescent nature was nice after the heavy meal. LIghtly tart, earthy, light sweet with brown sugar. Certainly not your typical pumpkin beer, but a nice change.

In a word this one sucks. Low ABV and it tastes like cider. Looks good in a glass though so I will give it that.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is slightly sour with some pumpkin spice in there. Taste is actually sweet, with a lot of pumpkin and spice coming through. Feels very fizzy to me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle pours dark clear amber orange with 1 finger head. Nose is subtle spice, clove, malty fruit and grain, "pumpkin", not really any lambic funk. Taste isn’t uneasant but is simple, a mildly tart spiced malty beer with decently well balanced, apple sauce, cinnamon, allspice, clove, nutmeg, etc. Sourness is medium-low. Finish is spices, touch of tart earthy orange fruit and grain. Bit of a novelty but fair enough.

Clear deep dark amber with a fine head.
Aroma. Very pleasing sweet. Spicy pumpkin with a load of banana.
Flavor. a bit tart, Moderately spicy with a nice mix that is not the typical American pumpkin pie mix. A faint hint of vinegar hurts the rating.
O. An unusual pumpkin ale worth trying.
