3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. About 6 months old. Cloudy sunburst. Aroma is pumpkin pie, nutmeg, fall spices, and vanilla. The taste adds a champagne yeast sort of funk, honey, sugar, and graham crackers. Boozy in the middle. Not as much carb as I expected, average body. A very good fall seasonal.

Bottle shared by Douglas. Thanks!
A: Dark amber, almost red, thin off-white head.
N: Clove, all-spice, pumpkin, cola, fresh black peppercorn, esters, saison yeast, touch of lemon zest, and graham cracker.
T: Sweet, spicy, slight tartness.
M: Medium body, fuzzy carbonation, hidden alcohol.
O: A worthy experiment in a crowded field of pumpkin beers. It stands out well, and the sweet-sour combination works well here. Better than anything I had from Elysian this year.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber, tall head.
Nice, complex aroma.
Medium to full body, very intense flavors, silky palate, spritzy, long with a pleasant finish.
Sweet but enough bitter and tart counterbalance.
Exuberant spice flavors with a hoppy background.
Very nice and powerful, if you like sweet and spices.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Clear copper body, short tan head.
Aroma: Pumpkin, clove, nutmeg and hints of cinnamon.
Taste: Pumpkin up front with sweet malts. Hints of sugar, cinnamon, graham crackers and vanilla with a strong nutmeg and clove finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, highly carbonated.
Overall: This first sip was excellent, but the finish is too clove heavy. I wish it were balanced better.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On the fifth day of Christmas 2014. Pours deep chestnut brown with a small tan head that left decent lacing. Aroma is pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon and caramel. Taste is sweet, spicy and a hint of acidic tartness. Medium bodied, smooth mouth feel with a slick texture and some stickiness on the finish. Overall this is a solid pumpkin that doesn?t overdue the spices.
