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

THOUGHTS: Not too bad, but a little watered down. Both pumpkin and spices play an equal part as stars. GLad to see they didnít over power the pumpkin with spices. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark orange with a small to average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had moderate caramel and pumpkin; and pumpkin pie spices. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was rather sweet, slightly sour and slightly bitter. There was pumpkin, sour malt, pumpkin pie spices and caramel. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and then dry with fizzy carbonation and a chalky finish.

12oz bottle pours heavy amber with a good head. Aromas of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is malty and a little bitter. Body is a bit thin but good for a pumpkin pie session.

A very nice easy drinking beer. It has a bit of pumpkin in the aroma but not all of the spices you associate with pumpkin pie. Nice and understated.

Full bodied orange with nice white clouds of head. Smells of fresh pumpkin, light biscuit malt, white bread. Tastes of nice fresh pumpkin. Slightly bitter notes in the back of the mouth and almost dry. Quality.

Pours a clear copper color with a meager thin head. The aroma is faint, Iím not getting much from it at all. Sorta of an odd potpourri smell. Any pumpkin spice is virtually absent. The flavor leaves a lot to be desired. Itís astringent, overly sweet, nearly sour. Over carbonation doesnít help the flavor, but rather feels intrusive and needs to be turned down a notch. Other flavoring includes pale malts, light toastiness, a hint of cinnamon, pumpkin not too strong. Decent amount of hop bittering at the end. I hate being overly negative about a beer, but there really isnít much to hang your hat onto.

1st pumpkin beer of the season, even though it doesnít feel like Fall yet. Itís still 100 degrees outside. But this one is pretty damn good. The aroma is pretty pungent with a swift punch of pumpkin, spice, and a little bit of cinnamon in there on the back end. The flavor isnít too sweet or overpowering, so I can myself drinking more then one of these. A session pumpkin beer of sorts.
