COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour old ale is no trick, it’s all treat. We smashed and triple roasted 50 lbs of pumpkin down to 6 lbs, then aged the beer for 11 months on the roasted pumpkin in rum barrels. The aromas of spiced rum, mingled with the soft notes of roasted pumpkin, are notice up front. Spice, roasted pumpkin and rum is followed by a soft warming from within. Be warned, you might get pumpkin smashed!

3/XII/17 - on tap @ Billies Craft Beer Festival - BB: n/a (2017-2137) Thanks to the Belgian, Dutch and German ratebeerians for sharing today's beers!

Clear orange to copper beer, no head. Aroma: lots and lots of pumpkin spices, caramel, soft fruity touch, acidic impressions, nice! MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very acidic, sourish, spicy, malty, caramel, lemon juice, very sour, decent. Actually a Cascade beer I like, well waddayaknow... though I'm not sure if I could finish a whole glass, pretty darn sour still!

PhillyCraft (8312) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2017
Sampled on tap, pours a brown color with average head. Notes are the classic Cascade acid, vinegar, overly lactic funk, awful rum off-notes, and grain. Really an awful beer and idea.
