COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It tastes like a glassful of pumpkin pie, and no wonder! Loads of pumpkin, along with our own blend of spices, give this orange-colored ale the festive flavor thatís perfect for the season.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Draft at Triumph. Pours red with a beige head. Nice aroma, lots of spices...cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Medium light mouthfeel. Very typical pumpkin beer, but clean. Not mindblowing either

Floral pumpkin spice, cinnamon, potpurri aroma. Reddish garnet colored translucent beer with short tight beige head. Tangy pumpkin pie flavor, sweet veggies and cinnamon. quality, no ísoapí often in other pumpking ales. modest-light-tangy palate, refreshing. A good pumpkin ale.

Probably the best beer I had at triumph. The description in the menu is that it is like a bite of Pumpkin Pie in every mouthful and that is about accurate. Good spices and very well balanced. Not too overpowering as some pumpkins are.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Poured hazy amber with a thick tan head. Very nice appearance. Aroma had pumpkin and spices plus courant. Taste was too one dimensional but nice. There was more spice then pumpkin as someone else said. Quite nice though.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 On tap at the New Hope location. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with an average size off white lacing head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust and pumpkin. Flavors of the same. This was a very solid Pumpkin Ale. Right up there with the Weyerbacher and DFH, maybe not quite as solid...but close. Walked out with a growler of it.

Princeton. I thought the flavor was a little too heavy on the spices with not enough pumpkin, but I keep comparing all the Pumpkin Ales I try to Dogfish Headís Punkin Ale, so I guess itís sort of unfair. Very drinkable, added flavors arenít overpowering, just maybe not as well rounded as Iíd prefer my beer.

Had a few batches of this seasonal brew in 2004. First batch in Princeton was a bit heavy on the blackstrap molasses, but added a level of complexity I really enjoyed. Spice was not overpowering like so many other bottled versions of a pumpkin ale. Second wave I tried was a bit more balanced. The molasses flavor was not as pronounced, certainly a bit sweeter. Spices matched up well again. Quaffable!!

10.16.04 Tap @ Princeton. The pour a dark ruby/burnt siena - maple leaves in November. Nary any head. Aromas bite with spice, ginger snap, tobacco. Flavors right in line, more ginger, mulling spice, especially clove. Maybe some pumpkin-like flavors, but I might just be trying real hard to find them. Overall, itís a biting and simple beer, though full of character. Often, spiced beers like this one can be a real chore, but this is sharp enough to please.
