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.

Sample at the Midwest Brewers’ Festival. My first choice of beer at this fest. May be an odd choice, but after a summer of wheats and saisons, I’m ready to dive into a true fall style. Nice amber pumpkin beer color -- yes, we now know the color of a pumpkin beer -- and a little foam up top. A nice, spicy holiday nose, just the thing to put me in mind of autumn when it’s still sunny and 80F here. Taste has some pumpin pie spice, and little vegetal flavor that benefits from being roasted. Very smooth drinking. Not to thick; just a good, sessionable fall beer (I didn’t know when I took my notes that this was a Utah-friendly 4% abv).

Pours a dark golden/amber color. Aroma is of pumpkin spices, lactic, a little nutmeg, and pumkpin. Not too overpowering with the pumpkin spices. It seems to have more of an actual pumpkin aroma. Flavor is a little on the pumpkin side also. I can also get some nutmeg, grain, and malt. This brew is a lot more impressive than I was expecting.

joeneugs (4587) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Pours a bright copper color with a nice off white head. The aroma has lots of pumpkin and and pie spices, ginger, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla. The flavor is big despite the low alcohol content. Lots of the above mentioned spices with a good authentic pumpkin flavor. Pretty dry, but with just the right amount of sweet creaminess. This is about as good as a low gravity pumpkin ale can be. Very impressive.

Pours this beautiful golden, new copper color with a tall lasting head. Smells of canned pumpkin pie and spices. Medium nectar with good carbonation. Excellent display of pumpkin spices pushed from taste bud to taste bud by the delicious malty goodness. I also taste a bit of roasted pecan shells and coffee bean. A jolly good specimen.

Slightly hazy orangish brown. Average head, which left some nice lacing. The aroma is subdued, but there is certainly some pumpkin pie spice, roasted pumpkin, and some vegetal notes. The body is light and crisp. Nicely balanced, it’s spicy and sweet. The flavors are cinnamon, nutmeg, white pepper, pumpkin, and a bit of yeast on the finish, almost Belgian - like. The light body and low ABV make it very drinkable. Just slightly watery, but very different from most pumpkin ales in this respect, and not necessarily a bad thing. I would buy it again if I see it in the fall.

Banks to Amyliz4 for picking this bottle up. Pours light copper win a thin off white head. Plenty of visible carbonation. A bit if lacing. Smell is really plain. Hint of spice and very mild pumpkin. A bit squashy and really light cinnamon. A bit vegetal. Feel is light and undercarbonated. Quite plain. Cool label and some nice lacing, but that’s about all I can say in favor of this beer.

12oz bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear copper with tan head. The aroma is sweet with malts and peppered with winter spices, pumpkin and crystal malts. The taste starts off both sweet and spicy with sweet malts mixing with winter spices like cinnamon. Toward midway a faint pulse of grainy malts helps usher in modest pumpkin notes as this thing heads off into oblivion.

Tap at Brouwers. Thick soft white foam on dark amber. Spicy pumpkin pie scent. Straight forward tasty pumpkin beer. Just a hint of metallic on the edge.

Not my favorite Pumpkin beer-- needs pumpkin dialed up. Not as good as Blue Moon Pumpkin that I enjoyed in the past.

Pervasive pumpkin pie spices on the nose. Smooth, well rounded sweet caramel backbone with big pumpkin character. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and light clove in perfect balance. Some sweetness attributed to honey. A great example of the haggis of beers.
