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.

TOSG55's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a medium head. Fairly strong and sweet aroma of pumpkin pie. The flavor has similar notes - pumpkin, cloves, and cinnamon. Marred a little bit by a metallic/earthy off-taste, and a little bit dull. Still, I’d say it’s better than its rating here would indicate.

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.

Bottle. Clear copper amber with not lasting off-white head. Smell of fruity esters, spices, nutmeg, allspice. Medium sweetness, spicy, clove, caramel, nutmeg, pumpkin flavors with light bitterness. Light-medium bodied, strong carbonation.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 ABV - 5.7 .Appearance: Clear amber, one finger of off white head. Not much head retention. .Aroma: Upfront spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet malt. .Taste: Good mix of sweetness and spice, little on the sweet side, good amount of bitterness on the finish, slight citrus. .Mouthfeel: Thin, light bodied, watery. .Overall: C. .Lack of balance and a watery, thin mouthfeel put a damper on the experience. Looks great in the glass though.

rayaron (2012) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 Bottle. Clear copper with beige head. The aroma is quite spicy with notes of cinnamon, nuts, clove and ripe fruits. Sweet and spicy flavor with notes of clove, cinnamon, citrus, raisin and ripe fruits, slightly alcoholic. Medium-bodied.

ThreeCats (1007) - ISRAEL - OCT 21, 2017
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...

IndianaRed (5059) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2017
Bottle clear deep copper color, scant thin off-white head. Plenty of sweet holiday spice in the aroma. Dry carmelized malt flavors and a quick dry finish. Decent but unimpressive fall seasonal.

Bottle Pours a clear deep copper with a short lived fizzy white head. No real lacing Aroma is a slight cinimon/pumpkin thats smells sweet like cinimon candy. Some malts and no hop aroma. Flavor is consistant, but not as sweet as it smelled. Lively carbonation and a nice feel. Surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Interesting but I’ll never get used to pumpkin beer.

weihenweizen (4166) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Clear copper with small off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin & cinnamon, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is wheat ester, pumpkin, all spice, and some caramel malt.
Earlier Rating: 10/10/2010 Total Score: 1.9
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a medium amber, some lacing, low carbonation, and a small off-white head that dissapates quickly. Taste is dark malt and some pumpkin, and some spice. Boring not interested in buying any more.
