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

12 oz. bottle. oil slick pour. Hazy golden orange. Bubbly off-white head, tiny bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of spicy cinnamon. Flavor of nutmeg and vegetable. Malty and pumpkin in the back. Medium mouthfeel. Good bit of carbonation, that you can feel from the middle to the back of your tongue. This one isn’t over flavored, but may be a tad under-flavored.

Bottle from jjpm74 Thanks Nice aroma of spice and some underlying sweetness clove etc Pours a orange amber tone The flavor is where it all goes wrong It is vegetal and bitter tart unpleasant with none of the nice spice that was in the nose After the tart vegetal aspect comes a bitter earthy finish The flavor is acrid and bad really The nose was nice and I wish the flavor would have followed through

Sweet malt on the nose. Fruity flavor, with a cinnamon finish. The finish is very long lasting. Cant say this is very enjoyable.

POured a light orange color with a big white head. Aroma was of lots of nutmeg and a bit of biscut. Flavor was spices, then really hollow and watery in the middle and then a sweeter pie crust swallow, not horrible, but not everything fits together.

12 ounce bottle from Glenville beverage. Pours an orange color. Appropriate considering, Anyway, smells immediately of pumpkin spice. Taste is bitter. That disappointed me. I really wanted to like this one. Oh well.

Didn’t like this at all. Faint aroma, anemic red/brown body. Slight pumpkin aftertaste. Very light spicy palate. Not very impressive.

Pours amber/orange with a small white head. Faint aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor was light pumpkin, a touch of cinnamon and some nutmeg with a thin and watery plain finish.

Pours a clear copper color with a meager thin head. The aroma is faint, I’m 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. It’s astringent, overly sweet, nearly sour. Over carbonation doesn’t 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 isn’t much to hang your hat onto.

Bottle. Mild initial spice aroma. Medium amber cloudy color. Not very pumpkiny. A lil tart. Eh.
