Bottle from Oktoberfest sampler. Cloudy pale orange with a quick fading off white head. Nose is primarily banana and yeast with a hint of cinnamon and cloves. Light sweet supporting a light+ spice and a bit of tart citrus. Medium light creamy mouth with soft carbonation. Don’t notice much pumpkin in the flavour and less in the nose, which is probably why I don’t hate it, but I try to avoid pumpkin beers on principle. ametras (1628) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
600ml bottle. Hazy golden with a frothy white head. Flavors are bread, bubblegum, pumpkin, orange and cinnamon with herbal and fruity notes. Medium body, good carbonation, oily texture. robinvboyer (4670) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Hazy orange, big off white head. Aroma is very ready, and spicy, with some soft grassy hops. The pumpkin is a rad sweet, light fruit, and soft herbal spicing. Light bitterness, solid wheat, and subtle fruit tones. Freaky_tiki (1245) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
Final bottle from Octoberfest 4 pack. Wasn’t looking forward to this. Pumpkin loaf meets spicy dessert in a sizzling soda style concoction. The wheat ale makes it a little more interesting. Not much more to say on this one. deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle from LCBO. Nose is pumpkin, spice (cinnamon). Taste is refreshing with pumpkin and spices. Could be more wheaty. OK beer but not something I’d return to.

Draft - Bright citrus and lots of peel. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Banana, nutmeg and citrus. Not quite getting the pumpkin or spice. Jool (198) - - FEB 19, 2013
Bouteille 600 mL. Blonde trouble. Nez leger de muscade, de girofle et de muscade. Bouche de longueur moyenne avec une pointe epicee: girofle, muscade, esters et une finale sur la courge. Excellente biere de citrouille. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
600 ml bottle from the brewery via Lubiere (merci!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 10DE12.Metalchopz (3388) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
App.: Slightly hazy deep golden with a decent rocky white froth.
Aroma: Fairly assertive spicing – clove and ginger, a little allspice and cinnamon, some toasty biscuit malts, vanilla or something “creamy”, coriander??, a little citrus, lemongrass, hints of Belgian esters, a little different, still a spiced beer.
Palate: Medium body, fairly full, rounded effervescence.
Flav.: Slightly subdued spiciness, wheat, peppery, very little malt character, even less yeast character, a touch of biscuit/cracker, mainly spicy; dry with minimal bitterness and a spicy, ginger snap, cookie, graham cracker (power of suggestion from label) finish.
A little different, still not for me.
Nice to see a stronger version this year, with 300 pounds of puree. Pours a hazy golden-yellow colour with a good frothy white head, great retention and superbe thick and foamy lace. Aromas of Belgian Ale yeast, wheat and citrus notes. Medium-bodied with a slight creaminess to it. Beautiful spices show up in the taste (ginger, cloves), with the Belgian Ale yeast, wheaty malt and citrus. The pumpkin is present, but well-balanced in the background. Nice pumpkin wheat ale that is refreshing. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle, old rating from November 2012. Orange pour, huge white head. Citrusy aroma with hint of pumpkin spice. Really nice taste - light foamy wheat body, citrus and yeast - and pumpkin! Exactly as advertised and it works! Dry finish. I really liked this one.
