(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) opaque orange pour, creamy off-white bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Taste of alcohol, cinnamon, and apricot with some lightly tart fruit as well. Fruity finish with soft carbonation. Nice pumpkin beer! Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 17, 2010
The beer pours a dirty yellow color with a white head. The aroma is cinnamon and cloves with some toffee and pumpkin. The flavor is less complex. All I really get is the pumpkin along with what I believe is allspice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but not one I will see out again.
Sampled at GABF on 9/16/2010. This pumpkin beer pours a medium orange gold color . Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet, pumpkin and spicy. A medium bodied pumpkin beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, pumpkin and spicy. The hops are herbal. A fairly spicy pumpkin beer with lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice. Not very sweet. The spice tend to dominate the pumpkin and malt. Interesting beer though. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is spicy. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2010. I’m telling you, these guys that run this brewery are convincing. They told me to try their pumpkin beer. I was all, " but i don’t really like pumpkin beers." But, the told me their pumpkin beer was awesome. Pours a hazy, dirty orange with off white head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, mild tartness. Flavor is strong pumpkin sweetness with mild spice. A touch of sourness in the finish. Overall, pretty solid pumpkin beer. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2010
[Bottle] I was surprised to find a bottle at this time of the year, but they are still around. Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Some sediment and yeast in there as well. Hearty aroma of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet caramel. Solid, natural pumpkin taste is pretty dominant here. Not overwhelming, but less subtle than most pumpkin beers. Spices including nutmeg and ginger blend together with vanilla, clove and caramel. Average mouthfeel and appropriate carbonation levels. This is a solid Fall beer. And it’s good to see it around at various places out of season too.

This was OK. The aroma was pumpkin and sweet malt. The appearance was unappealing. It was a murky copper color with a colony of debris. Particulates are fine but this looked to have its own ecosystem. The foamy head was out of control. In fact, I had to use two glasses to pour it before it finally seted down. The palate was thick and pleasant with a good weight. Flavors were pumpkin and spice with a heavy grain bill. Some alcoholic presence as well. Like I said, decent but a very chaotic brew. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - JAN 16, 2011
A really hazy cola color in the glass. Definite pie spice in the aroma which is followed by that same spice in the flavor. Then the vanilla kicks in followed by a bit of a medicinal alcohol flavors. The mix doesn’t quite coalesce for me. That1Guy (2238) - Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Crushed at GABF ’10. Pretty good for a pumpkin beer. Nice spice and pumpkin presence in the aroma and the flavor. A little bit sour in the finish, but overall this nice. degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 Bottle. Pours a foamy hazy red-brown with a high, ecru head. Amazing nose -- cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg -- so often pumpkin beers don’t take advantage of the nose. Very rich on the mouthfeel, and not at all sweet; definite clove and nutmeg notes, and a pleasing pumpkin vegetal element. Finishes long and almost, but not quite, acrid - and as it warmed, the nutmeg note became almost unpleasant. Still, quite nice. (And the fact that the dude on the label looks like Frylock should get some bonus points.) OKplus (788) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
12oz served in an Allagash cervoise
A - GUSHER! Overflowed as soon as I opened it. (Served cold at 43 degrees) Quickly poured it and a massive 2 finger lightly tanned head formed. Below was a murky brown with chunks of sediment swirling around.
S - Nutmeg, sweet grains, pumpkin puree, metal, nuts.
T - Nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, clove, bitter pecans, semi-sweet pumpkin, gingerbread malt,
M - Moderate prickly carbonation, full bodied, semi-chewy but smooth.
Well it’s another gusher from this brewery. This is one of the better beers I’ve had from them. It has very good potential but needs some work. I will say that I’ve had this at a festival and it was much better.
