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

Hazy amber with thin lacy offwhite head; aroma is light with cinnamon notes; Flava is richly cinnamon and nutmeg; feels light and fizzy; fjnishes dry slight grain grassy notes and some sweet sugary notes late.

pours a clear orange/amber with a medium off white head. aroma is right down the middle for the style with balance between crust and light spices. flavor is more to the spicy side...clovey...just a bit muddled. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is earthy and dries with spices.

Has a very nice spiced pumpkin aroma. Almost pumpkin pie like. Smells pretty natural. Pumpkin tastes natural, not fake like some others. Mild spice. Full flavored but not heavy. Easy drinking. Maybe a bit of an odd aftertaste and a palate that feels almost like the carbonation lingers on the tongue. Slightly odd. Maybe the spices? But overall a good pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz. draft. Light amber pour with a decent sized head and lacing. Smell is cinnamon, nutmeg a touch of pumpkin. Taste is caramel, spice, just enough pumpkin to notice. Average pumpkin ale, suffers from too much spice and not enough pumpkin as many in this genre do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I enjoyed this. Has a good spicey kinda gingerbread aroma, some nutmeg. Has a mild pumpkin gingerbread taste, smooth body. Points for being organic.

Cinnamon aroma, nice orange color, spice is overcome by the hop punch. Hops hangs on the palate, limited maltiness.

Bottle. Mild initial spice aroma. Medium amber cloudy color. Not very pumpkiny. A lil tart. Eh.

EithCubes (4811) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottled 071013. Nose full of spice, cinnamon and allspice, and some mild earthier character. Pours an attractive neon orange with a sudsy beige head. Taste is only very lightly sweet, a little grainy and seemingly wheaten, spice is there but thankfully pulled back, and pulled back into a sustainable balance with the malt. No really bitterness or hops, some earthy character, fullish body and enjoyable enough.

Poured from bottle. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin and brown sugar. Good lookin cloudy amber/orange with light tan head that persists. I taste pumpkin with brown sugar, cinnamon, spices and malt. Could use a little more flavor. A bit too watery. But it is a nice beer that is working out well for me on this hot, humid summer day.
