One of my favorite pumpkin ales. The spices are exactly to my taste - not overpowering in aroma or taste. The one aspect of this beer that I feel is missing is the mouth feel. There is no cream, no body. But, when you take into account this beer is coming in at 5.7%, it goes down awfully smooth. Great beer. I hate to say this, but go Cooooooors!

Root, sweet pumpkin aroma. Amber appearance. Small head, highly carbonated. Small bitterness in palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Donker oranje kleur, weinig schuim.de geur redelijk chemisch. Redelijk smaakloos, valt wat tegen.

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (539) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle - Pours medium amber with fizzy white head. Aroma of pumpkin bread, spices, caramel, malt. Flavors of pumpkin pie, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, biscuit, malty, with mild hops end.

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.
