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!

HogTownHarry (6925) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2017
August 8, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel. 750ml bottle 2012 Project. Mostly clear ruby-amber with tiny floaties in it, decent fluffy beige head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, funk, sourness and alcohol. Oh my, that’s terrific - follows the aroma, but with oak and yes, rum! sweet and boozy - this works! Average body, airy, a little astringent, increasing sourness and alcohol in the finish. Great stuff - different.

Bottle from Beergium. Spicy smell with pumkin, reminds me of cinnamon. Similar taste, very spicy taste with some rum, vanilla and oak. Very tart taste. Christmasy. Slight boozy but I didn’t think it was above 11%, maybe 8%. Cozy beer.

rumore (534) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 12, 2017
From 75cl bottle at Grand Cru, Rimini, Italy. Pours hazy light brown with low carbonation. Aroma is rich of nuts, some sweet feeling, quote tannic. Body is medium-dense with low carbonation, quote some astringency and some stickiness. Taste has some sweetness at first, and relevant sourness all over the place. Finish is long.

Backlog. Pumpkin Smash 2015, tap w The Owl Farm. Blend sour blonda i quada leżakowanych w beczkach po burbonie i brandy (do 22 msc) z dodatkiem pieczonej dyni i przypraw (gałka muszkatołowa, cynamon, wanilia, goździki, ziele angielskie). W aromacie najpierw kwaśno, funky, dynia i przyprawy, pod koniec po ogrzaniu zaczyna wychodzić beczka. W smaku kwaśno i to bardzo, ale jest i ta podpieczona dynia i jest to chyba jedno z najbardziej intensywnie dyniowych piw jakie kiedykolwiek piłam. To wrażenie potęgują przyprawy, bo ten przyprawowy zestaw dodawany do pumpkin pie jest tu mocno wyczuwalny. To piwo ma w sumie najlepsze rzeczy z dyniowego ciasta: aromat i smak pieczonej dyni i przede wszystkim przypraw, bez tej przegiętej słodyczy. Szczególnie fajny jest taki przyjemnie ostry gałko-muszkatałowo-cynamonowy finish, który elegancko rozgrzewa (do spółki z niewyczuwalnym alkoholem). Jest to piwo super gładkie i nieprawdopodobnie „lekkie” jak na swoje imponujące 10,2 %

Tap at Pita Kabob in Visalia. Love the Cascade bees generally but this one falters slightly. The alcohol is well hidden. Restrained pumpkin with moderate spice.

Draft at Cascade Barrel House. Clear orange copper color with a small white head. Aroma is great, loads of pumpkin, spice, some tangerine notes, nice funk. Flavor is nicely tart with good pumpkin and cinnamon nutmeg, touch of citrus tartness. Medium bodied, crisp, acidic. Really enjoyable.

nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Sampled at Max’s Rare and Obscure 2016 pours a clear, dark amber with no head. Nose has tons of acid and some mild spice, apples. Flavor has loads of acid, some root veg and spice. Just too tart.

solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 12, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 Wow. This might possibly be the one of the best pumpkin beers I?ve had. Almost as good as Allagash Ghoulship. But three times as expensive of course. Light smipce and some pumpkin and a huge dose of sour plum, tangerine and apricot. Mostly like a Flanders Red with pumpkin stuff, but the weird experiment really works. Too bad it?s too expensive to buy in bottle. Maroon pour with good lacing and decent head. Tangy and tart finish. And the barrel aging even works with rum infusion. Tap at Whole Foods.

tmoreau (4369) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Shared 750 ml. 2014 bottle poured to a snifter showing a fairly clear, walnut color, with some off white head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was tartness, subtle funk, spice, dried fruitiness & skins, with some toastiness & pumpkin hidden in the mix. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, tart to sour character, tangy, a bit of tannic astringency, yet warming, with a dry finish. Nice.
