Didnít like this at all. Faint aroma, anemic red/brown body. Slight pumpkin aftertaste. Very light spicy palate. Not very impressive.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle: Orangish straw, slightly cloudy, moderate to thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Strong spicy nose.   Almost perfume like as I dont think Nutmeg, Cinnamon, or All-spice can be this strong.   Has a citrus peel sorta twang to it.   Somewhat reminds me of a cross between Orange Zinger and Red Zinger tea.   Very spicy on the tongue.   I canít even say I would call this Pumpkin as it seems so far off.   Pale malts, rather bright in its spices up front but it fades quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but nearing the lighter side.   I still canít really put my finger on the spices other than to say it seems artifical and very tea like.   Not a bad beer, but as a Pumpkin Ale its too spicy.   Needs to be a bit maltier and more natural.   I will say that normally organic beers have that sort of malt profile, but this one is so spiced that it covers it up.   Worth a try at least, especially if you are a Pumpkin Beer fan.   Thanks Cletus!

Pours orange with white head. Cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Slight pumpkin taste with cinnamon and nutmeg. Good pumpkin ale, not overpowering with spices.

PorterPounder (6526) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - The Beer Stop - a new store - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark murky orange with a slight, bubble white head. Very fragrant spicy aroma with hints of nutmeg and a bit of funkiness - kind of like aquarium water. Flavor is full of spice and not much pumpkin. The flavors of nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice come to mind. A bit of ripening vegetable funkiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is thickish and a bit sticky. Does in a pinch.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle complements of Fresh Beer Chris. Got the bottom of the bottle so is murkier than most. Medium yellow color. Up-front pumpkin gourd, only moderately spiced with mostly nutmeg noticable. Thin body, lingering bitter finish is a nice touch.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle - Poured a clear dark amber in color with a small white head that quickly faded to a thin rim around the top of the beer. Aroma is very strong of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and pumpkin. Some citrus too. Flavor is quite unusual... malty sweet to begin, but quite sour on the finish. Not enough palate/body... very thin. Very little of the pumpkin taste and too much spice. Quite disappointing...

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2009
Very bright orange. Very spicy, pumpkiny nose - big, brash and appetizing. On the palate it falls apart a bit, though. The body is thin. Thereís huge nutmeg and other spicy but not nearly the malt character to hold it all together.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Transparent amber bronze with a spotty-lacing thin wispy white head. Aroma of doughy pumpkin and cinnamon spice with some lemon citrusy notes that pick up more of a sour infected character as it warms. Body starts with effervescent carbonation and some light pale malty sweetness with a peppery clove spice and tart balance toward a thinner finish. Has some warmth from the acidity that certainly seems out of place. If this is infected, itís in its early stages, but is just present enough to affect the quality of the beer. Seems like it would be a good recipe otherwise.

Ughsmash (7426) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottled. Poured a lovely shade of clear medium orange with a short, well-retained cap of off-white head and lots of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up dry pumpkin spicage over sour pumpkin vinegary notes (if there is such a thing).. started out OK, but wasnít so enjoyable once the sourness took hold. The flavor followed those same lines, with sourness in all facets of the drink accented by nutmeg and pumpkin meat.. finished sour and oddly refreshing. Lighter-bodied with high carbonation and abrasive sourness on the palate.. this had some potential, but maybe the bottle just wasnít in good shape.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle shared by Oakes and Beershine. Orangish pour. Aroma is spicy, full of pure pumpkin notes and pumpkin pie spices. Flavor is full of some great pumpkin notes and spices. But as with most Wolavers, it is very thin on the mouth.
