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

Slightly cloudy deep amber pour with off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin and spices. The flavor hits the taste buds with a mix of sweetness and spice followed by a malt/pumpkin combo for some balance. A bit too much in the spice department, but a decent drinking pumpkin ale nonetheless.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear medium sunset orange with a small ivory head that quickly diminishes and leaves some lacing. Aroma is of pumpkin, banana and spice with some citrus notes. Taste is of light grains, pumpkin and citrus. Medium bodied and crisp, with good carbonation. Ending is lightly bitter with spice notes.

Bottle: nice amber orange appearance, slight head and lacing, faint pumpkin spice aroma. Some mild bitterness but a smooth finish with a good balance of subtle pumpkin and spice flavors. I would bug this again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours beautiful body - hazy orange with small white head. Aroma is defined spice, not crazy but good. Taste isnt bad. Organic twist, etc., spice prevails.

boFNjackson (4100) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle... Poured a hazy orange with an off-white head that lasted quite awhile. Lots of spices and warm pumpkin on the nose. Foamy and full palate, pretty hoppy with smooth, balancing malt and a backbone of pumpkin flavors. Good pumpkin ale.

thornecb (4293) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention leaves no lacing. Pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Crisp and dry with upfront sour pumpkin and a lasting sour spice finish. Aside from the sourness of this beer, it has many good qualitiesl.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. The aroma has pumpkin pie, clove, cinnamon, and ginger snap. The flavor starts toasty, reminds me a lot of a ginger snap, and also has cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Quite good.

Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste is a mild pumpkin, but pleasant. Not overwhelming.
