Wow! Fall spices upfront with sweet malts on the nose. Deep garnet/orange. Little head. Crisp, but very much like pumpkin pie. A nice change from the usual pumpkin beers/

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This spiced ale pours a deep orange color from a a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove and pumpkin. Medium bodied pumpkin beer. Malts are fruity and sweet with lots of pumpkin and spices. Hops are a touch earthy. Nice spicy flavors, mainly cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and clove. A touch thin but the pumpkin flavor really stands out. It doesn’t have that really artificial taste that some pumpkin ales have. The alcohol is somewhat noticeable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly spicy.

I liked the spiciness of this pumpkin ale and it melds nicely with the alcohol content. This is definately one of the better pumpkin ales of all I’ve sampled.

12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear, medium caramel with a tall beige head... kinda looked like it had tears, too. Aroma was solidly pumpkin pie!... pumpkin, nutmeg, cardamom, and a tiny bit of caramel. Flavor was about the same, with alcohol accentuating the caramel and pumpkin malts. Smooth for the most part on the palate, with some rather sharp alcohol highlights. Finish felt a tad empty after the nose and flavor, but the spices remained. Very nice brew overall!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a minimal white head that faded quickly. Very spiced aroma, pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, and on and on. A virtual spice coctail over sweet caramel malt and a touch of alcohol. Alot of spice in the flavor as well, yet the pumpkin really shines. The most "natural" pumpkin flavor I’ve ever had. Full bodied and slightly cloying with light fizzy carbonation. A very nice beer, this one will change your mind about pumpkin beers.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beer is a clear dark amber color with a good full tan colored head. Aromas of cinnamon and clove dominate followed with some malt. Flavors of cinnamon, clove, pumpkin and malt sweetness with a nice slightly dry finish. A good full bodied beer with a little bit of the alcohol coimg through. This is probably the best pumpkin ale I’ve ever had. Good job weyerbacher!

Nice deep dark amber pour....nice spicey nose, all the Thanksgiving spices are accounted for. Big flavor, sweet malts, more cinnamon and allspice, fruitiness too. Very tasty ale. Medium bodied, spicey and bitter in the end. Great tasting ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle (courtesy Kramer17801): It pours an amber-golden color with a thick fluffy head. The aroma explodes onto the nose. Some pumpkin, cloce, corriander, cinamon, nutmeg, oranges, brown sugar aromas. Very busy and lots to take in. The flavor is good, but not great. A lot of cinamon, nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin. Its as busy as the aroma, but not overly complex. Just kind of there mixed together. In addiition to the aromas the other flavors are black licorice, brown sugar, molases. Good but not great. The warmer it got, the more pronounced the pumpkin, clove, and cinamon are too prominant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber color, nice head and lacing. Nose of mandarin and pumpkin spice like nutmeg, lotion and fruity cocount, cinnamon peach. The flavor is very spicy with pumpkin and earthy, light alcohol. Banana and pina colada flavors; fruity tropical beer? More spicy pumpkin notes. Odd, but good. Thanks to kramer17801 for this beer.
