Light, refreshing, & different! This is good stuff. The pumpkin kind of drowns the aroma but it has a really good dark orange pour w/ a white head that leaves a hint of lacing. Sour meets pumpkin at a happy median. Try this!

Poured at a good temperature with a large, foamy, cream-colored head that settles after a bit and a little lace. Color is a lovely clear red amber. Aroma is super mild, bare tart and spice. Flavors like nose with all qualities magnified; chiefly nutmeg and pumpkin, some tang, dry. Body is fairly thin and carbonation ok. Finish is like flavor, average length, not up to Timmermans usual standards.

Bottle at Small Batch Beer Co. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices - cinnamon and nutmeg. Hint of apple as well. It tastes like a tart pumpkin pie twisted with apple cider. I liked this beer.

Pours like a fizzy cider. Aroma of pumpkin and spices with a distinct but light sourness. Taste is similar and a touch sweeter. Quite unusual.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Small Batch. Pours a clear burnt orange. Aroma is sweet cherry pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin. Interesting flavor profile that’s part cherry pie, part pumpkin pie, and part apple cider. Sweet pie flavors balanced with the acidity of the cider qualities. Some sweet spice in the finish as well. Quite enjoyable.

Pours hazy amber color with tan head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, toffee and some sourness. Sweet brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors with moderate tartness. Medium body with lively carbonation. I didn’t know what to expect but this was pretty decent.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A sour aroma, a bit like applejuice. Copper color, a bit foggy. There was a lot of sediment in the bottom of the bottle, some got in my glass, but I didn’t mind. Taste was slightly sour, like a hard cider, a tiny hint of vinegar, pumpkin pie, and a touch of caramel, and something a bit cranberryish. The sour was balanced with a slight fruity sweetness. There was minimal carbonation, but it went perfect with the gentle pumpkin flavor. The viscosity was not much higher than water, which believe is good for this style. We will be getting this again.

Very mellow beer. Clear, deep copper color. No head from bottle. Light notes of nutmeg in nose. Very slight sourness, and certainly no strong sweetness. What I imagine the pumpkin juice at Hogwarts would taste.
