COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pumpkin ale is brewed with organic pumpkins grown by Will and Judy Stevens, of Golden Russet Farm in Shoreham, VT, less than 15 miles away from our brewery. They have been growing organic vegetables and flowers for more than 25 years. Using local, organic ingredients whenever possible and supporting local farmers is just one of the many ways that we strive to minimize our impact on the environment. The subtle flavor of pumpkin and mild notes of spice enhance this golden amber ale, making it a perfect choice for the season. Wolaver’s offers a variety of styles to suit every taste, craft brewed in small batches at our "green" family owned brewery in Vermont. Our products contain to preservatives, are not pasteurized and, like all fresh foods, will change over time We print the date we bottled on for your information

Bottle from jjpm74 Thanks Nice aroma of spice and some underlying sweetness clove etc Pours a orange amber tone The flavor is where it all goes wrong It is vegetal and bitter tart unpleasant with none of the nice spice that was in the nose After the tart vegetal aspect comes a bitter earthy finish The flavor is acrid and bad really The nose was nice and I wish the flavor would have followed through

BEERGUY007 (206) - Scotia, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Glenville beverage. Pours an orange color. Appropriate considering, Anyway, smells immediately of pumpkin spice. Taste is bitter. That disappointed me. I really wanted to like this one. Oh well.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle. Sharp nutmeg, cinnamon, and copper aroma with a tart undertone. Cloudy orange-amber with a thin head. Intensely bad flavor. Copper and spice. Harsh and near undrinkable.

Nice aroma. Pours orangey of course. Lots of spice. I rather liked it but for some reason I just like all pumpkin ales.

Ratman197 (9648) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Bottle poured a hazy orange with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of clove, allspice, carmel and pumpkin. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, allspice, cinnamon and light pumpkin with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

mcox90 (1534) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 19, 2008
12 oz bottle. Bought a six pack at the local Shaw’s supermarket. Pours a pretty deep red orange color with a 1/2" white head. Huge spice nose with a fairly heavy palate. Strong flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and some pumpkin. Much heavier than some other pumpkin ales I’ve had. Pretty good, just wouldn’t want a lot of them.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Huge aroma: earth, grass, spices, especially nutmeg and allspice. Hazy amber orange, significant yellow-beige head leaves abundant lace. Initially bittersweet, grass and pumpkin, then turning towards tart orange juice with significant earthiness. The spices come to the fore in a lingering finish. Creamy on the front, clean in the finish, very quaffable.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Dark amber/orange in color. Huge spiced nose. Lots of nutmeg with cinnamon and ginger. Loads of spices. Some somewhat sour graininess in the background. Smooth mouthfeel. Somewhat bitter hoppy finish.

Beerman6686 (4289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2008
POured a light orange color with a big white head. Aroma was of lots of nutmeg and a bit of biscut. Flavor was spices, then really hollow and watery in the middle and then a sweeter pie crust swallow, not horrible, but not everything fits together.

josarah (111) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - OCT 30, 2008
12oz. bottle. Tight white head, orange amber color, nice spice pumkin aroma. If this beer is too cold the spice and hops do not meld well. I you let it reach 50+ degrees it is drinkable. Not a bad pumpkin ale, but not great either
