Clear copper pour with thin ring of offwhite head. Nose is like that of gingersnap cookies. Flavor is uninspirirng, but has all the typical pumpkin beer notes. Medium thin body. Average for the style I guess.

Brilliant orange-amber pumpkin hue with rich off-white creamy top. Toasted punpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice aromas greet the nose. Enjoyable cinnamon accented body atop a supportive malt backbone. Well-balanced, dryish finish parting with a note of chocolate dust.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a crystal clear orange amber with a moderate white head. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin along with the requisite pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is similar, and none of the flavors are timid, which I liked about this beer. The bitterness at the finish is a bit excessive for me, bordering on but not quite acrid. The mouthfeel is a bit waxy at the finish. Worth a try but not worth repeating.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Weird aroma, which doesnt sit right. It is a bit sour, acidic/acetic with some of the pumpkin spiciness. Stuff like nutmeg, and ginger, and cinnamon. Has a weird metallic note. Mildly transparent orange body with a smallish off-white head and decent lacing present. Well, this is sour, tart, acetic to start with some pumpkin like spice in the middle. Very spritzy and overly carbonated. Infected and significantly flawed. All of the bottles tasted like this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a cloudy orange colored body with a small one finger white head that quickly dissipated into the body. No carbonation is seen rising. No lacing is left.
The smell had the allspice and ginger up front with the pumpkin coming in behind it.
The taste balanced sweet malty pumpkin with the allspice and ginger coming in together. The aftertaste is bitter.
The palate was about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue.
Overall, this was not a bad pumpkin being that its organic. If I was a tree-hugger, this is a pumpkin beer that I would do more often.

Poured an orange-caramel color with a large tan head. The aroma was sweet, spicy with notes of orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor was sweet spicy cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of orange and a spicy dry finish. Full bodied. Very nice.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a hazy dark amber body with a white head and some nice airy lacing. The aroma has some nutmeg, mace, and a twangy sour malt component. The flavor is earthy and pumpkin laden malts with some nutmeg and cinnamon. Twangy. I could not find the printed on bottle date like they say is there. Dusty and oily texture.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 isn’t as good as the nose. There is still lots of pumpkin spice, but the malt side isn’t 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.
