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. Wolaverís 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

Maybe it was havinh this on Halloween after taking my daughter out trick-or-treating, but this one was a perfect pumpkin ale. Nice nose of pumpkin and gingerbread. Average looking pour with an off tannish head. Spot on use of the pumpkin and spices to keep the hops in their rightful place. Very enjoyable and highly drinkable. Pleasant nutmeg(?) and cinnamon finish.

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 golden orange color. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel, nutmeg, and spice. Sweet caramel taste with some spice. Too light and too mellow.

Bottle. This is ok, much better than most pumpkin beers Iíve had. Smells definitely a little bit of spice, cinnamon, nutmeg. Drinkable.

Pours clear amber with thin white lacing. Mild spice and pumpkin on the nose. Good pumpkin and nutmeg presence on the palate. Nicely balanced and not too sweet. Very enjoyable.

Another bottle from Travlr; thanks again! Aroma of fresh pumpkin and a nice spice balance, definitely some clove and nutmeg in there. Appearance is unfiltered amber brown with bone head. Flavor matches the nose; the clove and nutmeg and still the stars balanced by the pumpkin, but there is a nice, herbal hop finish as well- the spice really lingers overall. Palate is slick with a light mouthfeel. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

HighlanderOne (994) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Poured from bottle. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin and brown sugar. Good lookin cloudy amber/orange with light tan head that persists. I taste pumpkin with brown sugar, cinnamon, spices and malt. Could use a little more flavor. A bit too watery. But it is a nice beer that is working out well for me on this hot, humid summer day.

You're typical pumpkin ale, not saying it's boring. It has a good fall taste, prevalent spices with a hint of pumpkin. Being organic adds nothing to the flavor just adds the satisfaction of knowing its the real stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
