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. Wolaverís 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

Early in the season for this.....2013 version labeled as Wolaverís Pumpkin Ale......pours a copper color with an off white head which hangs around for a bit and laces well. Aroma of nutmeg, orange, allspice, and sweetness. Taste is full of spices with little pumpkin taste, perhaps this was too early to try it as the spices overwhelm any other flavor, with a decent mouthfeel. Bitterness is the last sensation after the hit of spice.

Another bottle from Travlr; thanks again! Aroma of fresh pumpkin and a nice spice balance, definitely some clove and nutmeg in there. Appearance is unfiltered amber brown with bone head. Flavor matches the nose; the clove and nutmeg and still the stars balanced by the pumpkin, but there is a nice, herbal hop finish as well- the spice really lingers overall. Palate is slick with a light mouthfeel. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

this beer is exactly what I thought it would be... a nice clean refreshing pumpkin taste. the aroma obviously was pumpkin and spices and was smooth with zero bitterness. very good pumpkin!

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy reddish orange with a decent off white head. The nose has a good bit of pumpkin spice and a touch of pumpkin bread. The flavor unfortunately isnít as good as the nose. There is still lots of pumpkin spice, but the malt side isnít very complex. There is a little doughy malt but not much else. There is an odd lingering bitterness on the back end. Medium body with a little aggressive carbonation. Serviceable but not spectacular.

Honestly, one of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had. The spices seemed to be just right; not too faint, not too strong. Pleasing brew.

355mL thanks to Travlr. Pours chill haze deep amber. Weaker white head. Scant lace. Nose is malty, a bit stale, squashy, weak pumpkin, apple juice, some spice. Taste is nutmeg/pumpkin pie spice, buttery crust, moving to a lot of lemon tea and soap. Palate is dish water and chalk. My rating: 2.7 Fiance rating: 3.4

The head on this beer was weak with little retention. This was perhaps the only negative. The aroma was excellent. It smelled like a warm pumpkin pie. The beer had a great hop flavor that is often missing in this style. It also had a lingering taste of all spice. This is a beer that I would gladly have a second. In general a good beer for this style it was great.

MadRobin (1861) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 10, 2012
On tap half pint at Gilly's Craft Beer & Wine in Rockville, MD. Clear, bright amber copper with off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of tons of cloves, nutmeg, pumpkin, caramel, spice and earthy yeast. Taste of cloves and other spices, caramel, pumpkin and bitter squash. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: nice amber orange appearance, slight head and lacing, faint pumpkin spice aroma. Some mild bitterness but a smooth finish with a good balance of subtle pumpkin and spice flavors. I would bug this again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear amber with thin white lacing. Mild spice and pumpkin on the nose. Good pumpkin and nutmeg presence on the palate. Nicely balanced and not too sweet. Very enjoyable.
