COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 1995, we crafted our first autumn seasonal—Pumpkin Ale. At the time, Oktoberfest beers were in high demand. For our version, we wanted to create a beer that was a little different than what was already out there and complemented the season by highlighting the flavors we’ve all grown to love during this time. It was so popular that it became the first nationally available pumpkin ale. Harvest Pumpkin Wheat, as it’s called now, is crafted with pumpkin and spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice for a taste you’ll want to fall right into.

Pours an autumn color. Okay, burnt orange. Somewhat hazy. Some sediment in it. Two finger lightly cream colored head. Light retention, light lacing.

Aroma is pumpkin and pumpkin spice. Bready and bread crust. A little wheaty.

Taste is pumpkin and pumpkin spice. A little more pumpkin and a little less spice than most pumpkin beers. Bready. Has a nice allspice kick on the finish.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. A little pie spice bitterness on the finish.

Overall, pretty good. Considerably different than most pumpkin beers, it’s worth a shot. I’d probably buy it again and probably recommend it.

From Sept 2008 This pours a clear reddish gold with a 2 finger head of foam. Good head retention and some lacing. The smell smells slightly spicy, slightly malty. Not much going on. The taste is light but does at least have some character. Light spices, maybe some nutmeg other, are up front with really light pumpkin flavour and some sweet malt. It finishes slightly bitterish. Not bad. The mouthfeel is light close to medium but there's a harshness on my tongue that I'm not very fond of... Overall, worth visiting once for me but I won't buy it again.

Bottle, small quickly dissapearing bubbly creamy head, light hazy very deep orange color, light spicy melange aroma with hints of smoked wood and pumpkin, flavor of spices with some yeastiness and hint of pumpkin, and biscuity malt behind, carbonation just a bit agressive. Nice and enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 Maybe because I don't really like pumpkin anything I shouldn't be reviewing this. For my personal flavor preferences it would get about a 0.5, but I gave it a 2.6 because I feel that's more what it would deserve if I did enjoy said pumpkin flavoring.

Balance is especially important in a spicy forward beer like a pumpkin beer, and this one doesn’t quite make the grade. Light and watery, yet still overly aggressive on the pumpkin spice.

Has an ultra clear light copper color with a decent head of sustainable off-white foam. Has an aroma that starts off as wet wheat and fresh pumpkin guts, but then has a cheap drugstore cologne thing going on that almost ruins the whole experience. It has a better taste than it does aroma. Not a terrible pumpkin beer, but not an ace.

Reddish copper color with a big off white head. Aroma sweat and earthy, with nutmeg, clove, and spice notes. Taste is very sweet, strong notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice. Not badly made, but definitely an acquired taste...
