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.

liquidhedonism (66) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods in Hillsboro, OR. Initial nose has strong fall spices and a bit of malty sweetness. After tasting, I get cardboard and barnyard flavors like dirt, straw, or hay. Mouthfeel has a slight dry astringency from the spices and some bitterness from the hops. The spice profile is nice, but it desperately needs more sugar and alcohol to balance it out. The lack of malt leaves a dry, dull, and unfulfilling aftertaste. Utah and their 4% beer can eat a bag of di*ks.

Poured from a 12oz from Whole Foods. Initial aroma was similar to "fake pumpkin". Taste/palate was pretty weak in the beer backbone area but thankfully not too overpowered with spices. Based on the appetizing color of this beer, I expect it to be more complex.

Typical Uinta offering. Still it’s a bit better than New Holland’s Ichabod, with a slight bit of cinnamon and spice hints (still though, nothing special). The best things about this beer might be the name and the pretty bottle.

maltman53 (328) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 30, 2014
If this is what pumpkin beer is supposed to taste like count me out. Insipid body and flavor, followed by no grip or structure. Overall, a dud.

Voodoo (311) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours a clear copper with an orange tinge and a white head which lingered a bit and laced.......aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin......taste is crisp, dry, slight pumpkin, bitterness on the back end.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Buoy shaped bottle. Clear, intense copper color, slight white head. Sweet spice aroma... Reminds me of pickled peaches. Dry, biscuity, woody. OK, not great. ABC Liquors, Betton.

suprchunk (2245) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Orange amber colored pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Big spicy pumpkin pie aroma. Taste is the same with some maple and malt notes.

Pailhead (4814) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, nutmeg, ginger, clove, and light cinnamon. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger soapy off-white head that has decent retention. There’s a good amount of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with caramel and light roasted pumpkin. The finish has light nutmeg, ginger, clove, and a touch of cinnamon. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent pumpkin ale, but I wish the flavor was as strong as the aroma.

bubbleflubber (1826) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours translucent copper into the glass, with a foamy eggshell head that leaves webbed lace. The nose is of pumpkin meat and pie spices. Flavors are dough, pumpkin, Allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The finish closes on these pie spices. The smooth mouthfeel is perfect for autumn, with soft carbonation, complexity without being cloying, and substance via a round medium body. All-in-all, a decent pumpkin ale for sure.

12 ounce can thanks to drsilverworm. Pours a somewhat hazy copper with a beige head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is mild spices and pie crust. The taste is doughy and spicy. I particularly pick up on cinnamon and nutmeg. Creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation.
