Bottle at home. From Whole Foods. Cloudy amber when poured cold. The aroma is nutmeg,canned pumpkin, overripe banana, and banana bread. Full bodied with aggressive carbonation. Flavors include banana and wheat, aside from the token spices and pumpkin. Dry finish with lingering spices, including white pepper. Fine pumpkin ale, even in late May.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap, poured into a bullet. The aromas are pretty pumpkin spice forward, with a bit of caramel underneath. It pours an oily, lightly hazy, caramel color with a dense, white head that retains a thin ring and has a runny lace that leaves nothing on the glass. The taste is a medium high sweet medium spice bitter. The beer is sticky and thick with just a hint of carbonation and a full malty body. Pumpkin pie and caramel dominate the palate with some bread notes and a spicy finish. It’s relatively clean with just a light spice lingering in the aftertaste.

Pours a dark orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice and nutmeg. Mild carbonation in the mouth with a prefect mix of pumpkin spice, nutmeg and vanilla. This is one of the best pumpkin beers out there.

Amber pour, mostly white head. The spices and pumpkin come through very nicely in the nose, with some nice yeasty qualities and bready notes. Some pumpkin taste but not a lot. Not much flavor at all kinda bland. Much better of this style available.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant burnt orange with lots of floaties. Nose is fruity pumpkin, light peppery alcohol, caramel malt, and diminishing cinnamon/allspice. Flavor is pumpkin, pepper, and light allspice up front, finishing with more pumkin/caramel malt. Lingering faint spice. Really good considering this is out of season. Would like to try fresh, and imagine it would be quite tasty.
