Got this bottle from Leuken’s. Served in a Pumking goblet.
Pours a moderate orange-copper with a good off-white head. Decent retention and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carried a lot of squash and pumpkin with a bit of cinnamon and miscellaneous spice in the background. The flavor didn’t have quite as much spice and really focused on the squash element. Not too sweet, which was nice. Chewy medium body with moderate carbonation and a bit of spice zest in the finish. Good brew. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Another smuggled find from Keg Juggler. Spiced pumpkin aroma and flavor. Nice palate.

Great pumpkin aroma that kind of reminds me of a cigar humidor. Cloudy orange color with very minimal head. A bit of bubble gum in the taste, and of course pumpkin. Smooth but oily on the palate.

One of the best pumpkin ales out there. Second only to TREAT in my opinion. What a perfect blend of spice and pumpkin with the backdrop of a really nice amber ale. Tasty pleasant and not overwhelming or infected! egajdzis (6693) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Orange color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel malts, pumpkin, and some alcohol. Taste of cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, and a sweeter finish.

Tap & Bottle (notes). Pour is hazy orange/amber color with a fluffy white head. Nose is pumpkin spice - cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg. Some sweet malts. Taste is pretty much the same, like eating a pumpkin pie. A great beer all around, and my personal favorite pumpkin beer. patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle. Bomber. Had this a few times, split one with Sean on Christmas Eve 2011. Pours a straight pumpkin orange with a thick, khaki fuzzy head. Lacing is shaving-creamy and sticky. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, subtle vanilla and sugar cookie, and some very slight hints of noble hops. Medium bodied, sort of loose, with a light, somewhate lively palate. Finishes with some nice vanilla and pumpkin flavors on the tongue. Cool pumpkin ale. sebletitje (10285) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2011
Entering old rates. Draft in early phase of CCB then on draft in Oct ‘2010. Score reflects the updated version as the draft had lost some of its magic compared to the original smaller batch.
Une des rares bières que j’avais goutées qui reprenait parfaitement le profile de la citrouille sans virer comme Southern Tier dans le faux extrait. Le tout avec les épices qui caractérisent ce type de bière automnales. On y retrouve, cannelle, girofle, all spices et une profile malté caramel qui reste en retrait pour laisser à la citrouille une belle place et une note végétale.

Pours a dark orange with thin but perfectly distributed lacing. Heavy notes of pumpkin , nutmeg, pumpkin pie and cinnamon. The palate is sweet but has a bite to it. After awhile it becomes slightly overwhelming beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Poured a hazy orange. A decent dense foamy white head. Aroma is a nice blend of fall spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. The flavor is more of the same but just bolder and with the added hint of pumpkin. Very creamy and tasty. This is EASILY one of my favorite pumpkin beers. Carbonation is spot on and it has a nice balanced mouthfeel. The 9% is hidden amazingly well making this very drinkable. Would LOVE to try this again sometime. Yes that is a trade offer.
