650ml brown bottle. Pours dark orange-brown. Some haze. Light wispy white head, not much lace. Nose has light malts, some caramel sweetness, faint spice. Flavour has a sweet start, nutty and caramel malt, faint brown sugar, light earthiness, light spices, just a hint of hops late in the brew. Dries out in the end, some malts and grains in the aftertaste, medium bodied, average carbonation. Decent pumpkin brew.

Pours deep amber orange. Big frothy head. Sour Punkin smell, wet grasses. Taste of spice, mild pumpkin. Finish a little more robust and bitter, makes for a better balance. OK pumpkin beer

Bottle - Pumpkin spices and nice pumpkin. Orange clear copper with a rich beige head. Pumpkin and spices up front with an unpleasant bitterness that follows through to the finish. Not that great.

If only this beer tasted as good as it looks! Great head, wonderful color but that’s where the good ends. Limited pumpkiness happening, almost nil carbonation, decent finish. Not a bad beer but probably one of the weaker pumpkin beers I’ve had this year.

Pours a dark amber with creamy white head. Some faint pumpkin pie aromas...cinnamon and cloves....that’s about it. Tastes more like an oktoberfest/marzen....malty up front hoppy finish....not much of a pumpkin beer though.

Single bottle purchased from a BC Signature Liquor Store in Abbotsford, BC on 10/22/2012. Colour: Dark brown with hints of orange, and slightly cloudy with no head. Nose: A dusty yeast, A sweet caramelized pumpkin note, a hint of maple. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. Somewhat sweet but quite delicate and soft. Spice does slightly emerge late with a fading vegetable bitterness. Quite, quite enjoyable.

One of the better ones in its genre... actually the first I’ve had that I’d try again! I won’t though since I’m a ticker through-and-through for the moment.
Nice combination of sweet and bitter, with the pumpkin adding to the former, but not in an artificial way. I can even taste the hops.
A pumpkin beer where the vegetable somehow actually adds to the balance instead of taking away from it. Apparently quite hard to do, so good job on that. :D

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Mise à jour: Je viens de l’essayé encore cette année et, selon moi, c’est beaucoup mieux qu’avant. Je dirai que il y a une présence plus fort d’épices cette année. C’est un couleur orange avec un col moyenne beige. L’arôme d’épices avec un peu de citrouille. Le goût est plutôt est épices que citrouille mais c’est une bière assez bonne même sans considerer que c’est une bière de citrouille.

pours translucent bottle brown, minimal head, ringed retention, minimal lacing, slow as molasses moving CO2 streams. Some malt on the nose, not much else. 7/10-level sweetness med-heavy malts up front, brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin, very creamy silky mouthfeel, finishes just a tad watery and thin. A soft mellow lingering bitter finish. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, decent carry, pretty good drinkability.

Bottled sample. Dark orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of nutmeg, sourish pumpkin, and pale mats. Surprisingly, pale and toasted malts lead the way in the mouth backed by notes of pumpkin, brown sugar, some woody/spicy heat, and a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied. Disjoint, but more or less ok.
