Love the color and aroma but baking spice flavors are overpowering. And the finish clashes with the rest of the taste, a very harsh bitter taste.

Bottle. Pour is a deep coppery orange with a finger of bubble tan head. Aromas are very heavy on the pie spices with a touch of sweetness that might be described as pumpkin. Still, the spice in the nose is abit overdone. Flavor is very odd and I’m wondering if I have an infected bottle. There is a sour funk to it that is completely unexpected, but since it’s new, I can’t see it being an aging/storage issue. As it warms a bit, this becomes diminished. The spice is strong and dominates past the tartness... cloves and cinnamon dominate and drive this one home... Still, this is weird stuff.

12 oz, bottled 08/21/08. Hazy copper with a lasting disc of cream and nice frosty lace. Aroma is mostly the typical spice mixture, but atypical in that there seems to actually be some pumpkin in there too - a lightly sourish vegetable aroma. Alas, the flavor indicates otherwise, as the spice flavors dominate from the get-go as in so many pumpkin ales out there. This one is mostly ginger; maybe some nutmeg and allspice that help to hog the spotlight. Light-medium body is a little fizzy, and dry and tingly from the spice. If you like ginger, you will like this one.

12oz. pours deep copper with small head. aroma is pumpkin and spice and very yummy. mouthful is tart and tangy with some lingering vegetable taste... the pumpkin and spice was hard to find... a little let down.

From a 12 ounce bottle from Belmont Station in PDX--Rustic orange-copper body with a thin, soft off-white head. Obvious pumpkin-pie spice nose. A tad tart-sweet. The flavor starts with a stinging to the front of the tongue. Toward the middle of the tongue, the acidic and carbonic profile is realized. By the time the back of the tongue is introduced, the marzen-looking and malt-driven English-esque ale disappoints some. Not sure what to make of this beer. Red Sox tied with Anaheim of LA in the 9th inning.

Pours a hazy orange with a light ring of foam. Like a good many pumpkin ales, the spices are evident as soon as the cap is popped. Unfortunately this has a vague septic or rotten aroma to accompany. Muddled squash. Tastes of bland cafeteria-spices, vegetal dry finish with an odd note of incense. Good carbonation, thin body, pinched finish. An odd pumpkin beer, definitely bold in taste but a bit vegetal and dry. Points for effort! Thanks to jjpm74 for the trade!

On tap at rattle n hum. Only had this because iíve had everything else on the menu for once. Pours a clear dark amber. Nose is potpourri spice, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Mouth is watery and artificial. Tons of potpourri spice that upset my stomach.

Hazy orange with an off-white head. Lemony citrus hops, light pumpkin aroma. Flavor is similar with the lemon killing me. Not bad, but I donít enjoy the interaction of hte pumpkin and lemony hops.

12oz bottle from Vintage Estates, I told cheapdark I drank more pumpkin beers this year because of rating beers on this website. I donít see a problem with that. Pumpkin color and aroma, hints of cinnamon. Iím trying to like these organic beers, they just seemed a little light to me. Medium body, creamy brew, decent CO2, mild finish. Overall not bad, just didnít like the combination of organic and pumpkin.

Decent beer, the pumpkin flavor doesnít overwhelm. The beer is somewhat on the thin side. Not what Iím looking forward to in a beer.

sampled during an impromptu pumpkin tasting. pours an orange hue. scent is of cinnamon, nutmeg, and malt. not much pumpkin character. taste is similar but not as interesting as the nose. mouth is light, not a bad beer for the season so long as the price is right.
