Smooth, tasty pumpkin ale. Fantastic colour with quite a bit noticeable pumpkin. Very enjoyable for a relaxing evening herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a murky orange brown, very little head. Nice pumpkin and spicey aroma. Nutmeg, cinnamon. Medium, creamy body. Sweet with a peppery overtone. Great clean finish. This was delicious. The flavours popped, but weren’t overwhelming. Really nice! KansaiBeerLvrs (5090) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2016
First pumpkin beer of the season is an award winner (2015 Gold Ontario Brewing Awards) from Black Creek brewing in Toronto.
5% for a beautiful Amber with minimal foam. It's got a really nice spice aroma with cinnamon, nutmeg and coriander plus rich malt/pumpkin.
Medium bodied and dry with good sweetness like yams, caramel, nutmeg and a rich spiciness. Really good stuff.

Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light pumpkin notes with light cinnamon notes. Taste is also dominated by medium pumpkin notes with some cinnamon and ginger also discernable. Malt backbone is present and provides semi-sweet caramel flavours. Body is about average with light creaminess and good carbonation. Nothing extreme in this beer – just good balance mix between pumpkin and light spices.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 This is a re-rating, as the first time I tried it I believe the beer had gone bad.
Pours a rich amber colour, with basically no head at all. Aroma is pleasant with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and pumpkin. Tasting notes include distinct pumpkin, with notes of ginger/nutmeg/cloves. Fantastic seasonal, and much better than my first go around with this brew!

Bouteille 500 ml. 5%. Couleur ambrée-orange. Arôme de citrouille, cannelle, muscade et de tarte à la citrouille. En bouche, de la tarte, un peu d’épices pas trop piquantes. Très bonne. Hammy78 (973) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle purchased at the Dundas LCBO. Pour is orange/ brown with a white head that dies down to about a half finger, also a fair amount of lacing too. Smells, well of pumpkin of course, and some spice. Tastes rather spicey, nutmeg for sure and cinnamon, pumpkin too. pootzboy (1711) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
1/2 liter bottle: pours an orangey-amber hazed ale in the glass - 2 finger tight-pored off white cap lasts well, laces the glass. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of musty pumpkin shell and toasty-bready malts, a hint of sweetness, some grassyness. Medium bodied, demure rounded character. Flavor is a very pleasing pumpkin and caramalt blend in the front, some tostiness, some spice, some hop bittering to balance, this intensifies a bit going to a lingering balanced finish. A substantial pumpkin ale flavourful but demure without being understated - a very drinkable pumpkin brew. I like it. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a short lasting white head. Smell is cloves and cinnamon. Taste is cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, lemon. Excellent. Finish is spicy, not much bitterness per se. Medium to strong body, soft mouthfeel. Good pumpkin ale. asheft (3062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle. Spicy gingerbread aroma with a little clove and brown sugar. Dark yellow under some of white lace. Faintly bitter ginger and brown sugar. Delicate. Light body, moderate carbonation, slight lingering bitterness.
