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

A nice and delicious pumpkin beer. I love the fall and pumpkin beers and this is a strong, but not exceptional offering. Aroma was average. Mostly pumpkin with a hint of vanilla. Pour was a nice light brownb with a one finger off white head. Taste was a nice mix of nutmeg, pumpkin and spices but not very full after initial impact. Very strong and full carbonation that feels like it’s poking holes in the tongue. I would consider this a summer "transition to fall" beer because there is heavy carbonation and a light mouthfeel, yet the pumpkin and spices hint on the season to come.

shadey (1849) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2008
12oz bottle. Pour is an amber orange, with a thin head of lacy white cream. The aroma is quite potent, with plenty of pumpkin-y notes. But rather than pumpkin pie spices, the aroma is more like that of a cooked pumpkin and maybe just a touch of spice. The flavors are also fairly potent with some odd unidentifiable notes in the finish. Overall its drinkable, but not one I will seek out again.

Pours a three finger beige head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Nearly clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Pumpkin nose. Flavor is pumpkin and some citrus, hints of a bitter finish. $1.45 for a 12oz bottle from Cabot Quechee Store Quechee, VT.

12 oz bottle. Clear orange-amber beer with a light white head. Aroma is quite fragrant with allspice and ginger over a light biscuity munich malt base. Flavour is sweet with a light biscuity munich malt base. Flavour is sweet with a nice balance of sweet spiciness and a soft sweet maltiness. Lingering bready flavour on the back. Easy to drink, well balanced and quite tasty.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange color with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is chock full of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is very spicy and pumpkin-y at the beginning with a sweet and spicy middle and a very sweet finish with a lot of cinnamon. Quite nice.

Nice aroma. Pours orangey of course. Lots of spice. I rather liked it but for some reason I just like all pumpkin ales.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange brown with a medium sized white to beige head. Heavy nutmeg, cinnamon, and a bit of clove and pumpkin flesh. Medium bodied, big spice and malt/grain flavors. Big spicy cinnamon finish. Crisp and clean. Pretty good, and a nice light change from some of the boozier pumpkin ales I seem to have been having this season.
