RnH: I’m as green as they come (TWSS) however I’ve never been a fan of organic beer, this one being no different. The beer is very drinkable, however almost completely lacking flavor. There are some pumkpin notes on the finish, a tiny bit of spices and that’s it.

Hazy reddish brown color and a light nose showing more spices than pumpkin. This flavor builds on the palate and you get more roasted pumpkin on the finish,

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear copper with a tall foamy tan head. The head dropped to a film rather quickly, but left a light amount of lacing. There was a light spice aroma of cloves, pumpkin and nutmeg. The flavor was also mild with tastes of clove and pumpkin. There was a nice hop bitterness that developed on the finish. A nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle 2009 batch. Sparkling orange-amber pour with about a half-inch of foamy head and pretty good lacing clinging to the glass. I have actually been by that pumpkin patch in Shoreham, Vermont where the pumpkins originate from. The aroma is rich in pumpkin spice and breads. The mouthfeel is pretty nice. The flavor combines a balance of pumpkin and mild hops with a slightly dry finish, which I found to be rather interesting for a pumpkin spice. This is a decently done seasonal.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange brown with a medium sized white to beige head. Heavy nutmeg, cinnamon, and a bit of clove and pumpkin flesh. Medium bodied, big spice and malt/grain flavors. Big spicy cinnamon finish. Crisp and clean. Pretty good, and a nice light change from some of the boozier pumpkin ales I seem to have been having this season.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and Cinnamon. Flavor upfront is pumpkin and the palate is the spices. Not overpowering like many of the style and finish is refreshing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours orange with great clarity and an off white film of head. Decent spice presence in the aroma witha sweetness reminiscent of canned pumpkin. Some brown sugar maltose character and some spice presence of cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. Decent light body with mild light carbonation. The flavor has less character/depth than the aroma. Lean caramel malts lead to a very bitter clove finish. Seems like they boiled some of the spices too long and then threw a bunch more spices in late secondary for the aromatics. A bit one dimensional, fizzy/thin. Just a homogeneous bitter spicy finish. If they were to adjust the spice schedule it could be decent.
