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

Bottle. Pours a burnt amber in color with a pure white, medium head. It has a bitter spicey aroma, with no pumpkin whatsoever. The flavor is much the same. This beer tastes more like a spiced pale ale then a pumpkin ale. There are much better products out there in this style.

looks good- at first, I found the overtly spicy brew somewhat pleasing, but was not sure why. Then a friend mentioned that the beer tastes exactly like worchester sauce (which I like). He was right. Then the reality set it- this was not a good beer. A sad drain pour followed. Thanks Tricia.

Bottle. Sharp nutmeg, cinnamon, and copper aroma with a tart undertone. Cloudy orange-amber with a thin head. Intensely bad flavor. Copper and spice. Harsh and near undrinkable.

12oz bottle-pours a rich light tan head and amber/orange color. Aroma is nutmeg, spice, medium malt, some fishy?/overripe pumpkin. Tate is nutmeg, over spiced medium malt, overripe pumpkin, citrus-lemon rind bitter, plastic, vinegar/sour. Drain pour. Thanks jwc215 for picking this out.

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.
