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.

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.

I’m really impressed by this one. The pour is a dark murky brown with light copper tones at the bottom. A nose of huge squash and pumpkin with medium allspice and cinnamon. The middle is of brown sugar with toffee, breaded malts and an impending pumpkin vegetable taste. The pumpkin is huge and heavy with a spiced finish. No alcohol, but a slightly overbearing spiced pumpkin finish, but still tasty. Overall, fantastic brew with impressive malty balance with the pumpkin.

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

Lagerboy (1295) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Dark copper, frothy tan head. Spicey, yeasty pumpkin nose. Strong bitter pumpkin and spice taste. Chunky. Medium to full bodied, a stronger offering than the other seasonals. Short bitter finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Pours a hazy dark copper colour with big white head slowly dissipating to a big white ring with spots covering the beer and a bit of lace up the glass. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and caramel. Flavours are a caramel maltiness, some hop bitterness, cloves, nutmeg, booze and little cinnamon, nuttiness slight pumpkin touch.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
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.

RumRunner101 (803) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
Nice aroma; malt, spices. Good flavours - starts malty with burnt caramel flavours and then opens up with pumpkin, spices and a bit of sweetness. Nice smooth finish, a little bit of bitterness. Overall great drinkability, a well done pumpkin ale.

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 a nice dark bronze colour with a medium size head with good retention. Aroma is a little light at the beginning but was it mores up more spice come thru mostly cinnamon and caramal malts. Flavour is sort of like a bourbon heavy on the spice with a nice sweetness from the malts and just a hint of pumpkin and squash
