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

While some folks shy away from the Pumpkin Ales, I consider myself a fan and look forward to their release each year, especially new ones! Pours a translucent orange amber with golden notes and a smaller bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of vanilla, nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, pretty much pumpkin pie with a touch of some toasted malt, nuts and honey. Flavor is much like the aroma in that it is pumpkin pie in a glass along with some toasted/nutty maltiness and a touch of hop bitterness. Bring on the fall and all things pumpkin, nice job Wolavers!

12oz bottle. Pour is an amber orange, with a thin head of lacy white cream. The aroma is quite potent, with plenty of pumpkin-y notes. But rather than pumpkin pie spices, the aroma is more like that of a cooked pumpkin and maybe just a touch of spice. The flavors are also fairly potent with some odd unidentifiable notes in the finish. Overall its drinkable, but not one I will seek out again.

A nice and delicious pumpkin beer. I love the fall and pumpkin beers and this is a strong, but not exceptional offering. Aroma was average. Mostly pumpkin with a hint of vanilla. Pour was a nice light brownb with a one finger off white head. Taste was a nice mix of nutmeg, pumpkin and spices but not very full after initial impact. Very strong and full carbonation that feels like it’s poking holes in the tongue. I would consider this a summer "transition to fall" beer because there is heavy carbonation and a light mouthfeel, yet the pumpkin and spices hint on the season to come.
