Pours clear amber with a short lived off white head that leaves an oily looking film. Aroma of clove spice with a hint of pumpkin. The flavor is sweet with notes of nutmeg, allspice, and biscuits. The pumpkin flavor is unfortunately very mild, and is dominated by the clove sweetness and allspice flavor. The carbonation is nearly absent, giving this ale a flat body. The sweetness of this ale becomes overwhelming after a while, which produce a sticky syrupy sweet finish. Overall, I?m not a fan of this seasonal offering from Blue Moon.
From old tasting notes. Bright copper color. Bubbly beige head. Fragrant pumpkin malt aroma. Interesting fruity malt flavor is complex and flavorful. Notes of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon are readily present. Spicy hop finish. mikske79 (1666) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - DEC 19, 2016
Donker oranje kleur, weinig schuim.de geur redelijk chemisch. Redelijk smaakloos, valt wat tegen. Brigadier (3665) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2016

Hiding in the back of the fridge after a party this would not have been a beer I normally opted to try. It’s an average Blue Moon - better than nothing but hardly a release to get excited about. Your mileage may vary but I’d rather buy local since almost any city will have something at least as good.
Aroma / Appearance - Watery marmalade fills the pint glass. A gentle offwhite head paints a soft canopy. The warm smell of Costco pumpkin pie is tethered by a gentle earthiness. The spices come mostly in the form of nutmeg with few frills.
Flavor / Palate - Vanilla ice cream paired with overdone pumpkin pie make it hard to focus on the other aspects. The basic fluid profile does not delve too deep. Instead it shoots for being a run of the mill seasonal that corners over 40% of the market due to branding. I’ll pass in the future.
A tough aroma which affected the taste. It was Pumpkinie with a little pallet. Tasted by Cannery Row Beer Club. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with white head. Pumpkin, caramel, malty, slight roasted sunfllower seed aromas. Pumpkin, caramel, malty, sunflower seed flavors. This was the third beer of my blind tasting of seven pumpkin beers.

Very nice and refreshing. Strange thin spices features but still good to enjoy with friends at all time. Cajun (532) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - SEP 8, 2016

Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is skunk with some pumpkin. Flavor is sweet with caramel malts. Finish is all pumpkin with some cinnamon. Better than I thought but still not great. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 27, 2016
bottle @ Florence Freedom game --- Clear medium amber color, ivory head that stays at 1", sheets of lace. Taste is mostly pumpkin, light malt, and very light spice. No discernible hops. Okay, but not for me. Maybe I’m just not into pumpkin brews.
