COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harvest the flavors of fall with a bottle opener and a stroll down the craft-brewed beer aisle. Four+ Punk’n Ale is the pick of the crop with notes of roasted pumpkin and seasonal spices. Savory. Crisp. The sweetness is in the celebration, not on the palate.

THOUGHTS: Sort of like home-made pumpkin pie. Not too sweet. Very pumpkin like. Not over-spiced. A little different than a lot of the other pumpkin beers. The others are either very sweet or all about the spices and not about the pumpkin. With the low ABV you can knock back a few. It even tasted good drank straight from the bottle, which I tried the night before I sat down with a glass to rate it. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium orange with and average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left barely fair lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel; hints of hops; pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet, fairly sour, slightly bitter and slightly acidic with a slightly longer than average duration. There was pumpkin, pumkpin pie spices, a little malt, a little caramel and hints of hops. The light to medium body was a bit watery and then fairly dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a slightly dry and almost chalky finish.

aroma of cinnamon/nutmeg type spiciness,pumpkin and sweet malts rather nice..also nice looking orange brown clear liquid pure white head with lacing..taste follows the nose very reminiscent of a subtle pumpkin pie flavor..palate and aftertaste are extensions of the flavor pleasantly tingly and sweetly spicy I got to say this is my first pumpkin style ale but i liked it,could use a bit stronger flavor and abv but not bad at all

tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 3, 2010
On draught at Albuquerque’s Nob Hill Bar & Grille. Fading white head with big pumpkin spice aroma. Medium body and full mouthfeel with solid maltiness working to balance the pumpkin flavors. A bit forceful but not obnoxious.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 A nice rosy brown colour with a pure White head. A stale spicy nose. A very thick mouthfeel with a sweet and spicy flavour. It has lemonady shandy-like twist and some flat staleness. It has it’s charms but I’ve seen better. Re-rate (2001 batch): Tres Orange. Sweet and spicy nose. Fruity and pulpy it fortunately skips the metallic flavour I find in the spice of many pumpkin beers. Chewy. (+.3 Overall)

HonusWagner (1380) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2010
I don’t like Pumpkin beers much, but this one smells absolutely divine. Wow, I almost want to give it a ten. Somehow, the taste doesn’t really follow the nose at all, offering not even a glimmer of delicious spice notes offered in the nose. Slightly buttery, not nearly to the level of Pumking. Flavor dissipates very quickly. Close to being a great beer.

robgibbens (412) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Pours a nice amber with a small but rocky foam. Aroma is strong like pumpkin pie, squash. Taste is slightly bitter, spices are not too apparent. Interesting and different, maybe too different? I am not getting the spice here.

jgb9348 (4735) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Crisp, bright copper coloured body with bright orange highlights and a thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of very potent pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, caramel and nuts. Light-bodied; Very mild pumpkin pie flavours at first with some mellow malt, some minor caramel sweetness but a very underwhelming flavour throughout. Aftertaste is bland to say the least - almost no taste aside from a minor pumpkin taste and a slight caramel sweetness, but fairly mild and cardboardie malt shows up. Overall, a pretty mild beer with some minor tastes and mellow flavours - no complexity at all. I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Bon Vivant Market in Smithfield, Virginia on 14-October-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 16-October-2010.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle purchased in Denver, Colorado. Red-orange appearance, medium head, strong spice scent, and tastes like actual Pumpkin. I’ve had better Pumpkin beers.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is, well whadya know, pumpkin. Actually this is probably one of the more savory of the pumpkin beers leaning more towards cooked pumpkin/yams with baking spices. Flavor shows the same. This is definately not your pumpkin pie beer, more like one you would serve with a main course. Good stuff.
