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.

Aroma is plastic like with some sour malt tones. Color is a bright dark gold with very good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is thin and spicy. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. Finish is weak with a thin mouth feel and just a little spiciness and a hint of pumpkin for flavor. I don’t like it.

Poured a dark, amber color with a thick white head. The nose was spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste jumps right into a complex spiciness of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. The end was light and dry with slight cascade hops coming through. The finish was dry and spicy.

A good, but not great pumpkin beer. Seems rather thin and watery compared to some of the others I have sampled. Taste and aroma is mostly spice, with just a hint of pumpkin. Poured from a 12 oz bottle.

The idea was good... The sweetness of the beer completely overwhelmed subtle flavors.

GABF 2006: Light hazy golden color with a large off-white head. Light cinnamon and clove with a hint of pumpkin. Sweet malt with light spice and pumpkin notes.

Nutmeg and clove aroma; watery body with a fairly dry, tangy and astringent finish; a hint of honey, allspice, and clove in the flavor; no malt charactor; overall rather dull.

Bottle: Deep amber color with dark orange tones, thick white head. Taste is a pumkin taste with a blend of spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove most prevalent. Pumpkin pie is what comes to mind with the overall feel of the beer. I really enjoyed this seasonal. Cheers!!!

(12 oz. Bottle). Pellucid? Yeah, pretty darn close! ;) Deep, amber. Thick white head with nice lace. Pumpkin pie spices on the nose which continue straight through the taste, nicely subtle in their complexities (classic clove/nutmeg/allspice/cinamon pie tastes). Light bodied ... and could use a little heft to fill-out the palate with the rich spiciness imparted by the nose and tougne.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Bottle: Pours a pellucid orange/copper color with a nice thick white head and creamy lacing. The nose is ripe with nutmeg and clove with a nice pumpkin pie note. Some of that classic allspice too. Yummy, this reminds me that autumn is just around the corner. The flavor is lacking body, character and much of any spice or pumpkin. A bit of that goodness is quaffed up through the nasal passages to give you another smell of it on the finish. Decent spicing, but a bit too thin and uninteresting to pull ahead of the plethora of other pumpkin beers this year.
