Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is plenty of pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is again pretty much all cinnamon and nutmeg with a big hit of sweet sugar towards the end. It’s a pretty solid pumpkin beer with a nice rich spice profile. chucklemation (1735) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Pours a hazy copper with floating particles and a very foamy white head. Aroma is lots of spices, with nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon standing out, though the allspice and clove certainly add some character. The flavor is is the same spices, with cinnamon coming through strongest, and the pumpkin is more apparent in the flavor too. Has a medium body, well-carbonated. This is a superior pumpkin beer. smurphy711 (4) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 25, 2016 does not count
Pours a dark amber. Pumpkin scent hits your nose and continues through your first sip. A little watery, but a good entry to pumpkin beers. Popoff91 (124) - Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2016
12-ounce bottles served in a large dimpled mug. I love fall/winter beers. This is one of the few pumpkin beers that actually has pumpkin, and not just the spice. Great dark color, pumpkin spice aroma, and decent alcohol content make this one of the best beers I have had this year. Still a little early in the season for this style, but will definitely continue to buy well into fall/winter.

Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a clear amber color. There was a wisp of an off white head. The nose is good. Lighter malts with some pumpkin pie spices. the taste is also good. Spices are up front, but almost too much cinnamon. Lighter malt behind the spices. Good. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Draft at the Bluegrass Festival. Not a great beer. Pumpkin was there, but the actual flavor and finish were watery and offputting. sulawang (1172) - - FEB 19, 2016
Visual: (Cellared 3 years). Pours reddish brown without much head, thin hazy layer of retention, some bubbles here and there.
Nose: brown sugar barley malt with background pumpkin spices. (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: sharp crisp, thicker mouthfeel, light tingly
Mid-palate: cinnamon, toasted pumpkin sweet-dense, toffee barley malt, allspice, (lvl-7)-a tad cloying sweetness, brown sugar
Finish: nutmeg-clove/root beer, lingering barley malt sweetness.
Summary: Pretty smooth entry with a decent amount of pronounced spices and a medium bodied/short length barley malt backbone. It becomes slightly cloying and taxing on the palate halfway through a glass; Still the flavours are agreeable. J_man (1017) - Tustin, California, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Deliciously strong cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg aromas from a murky pumpkin orange body with a thin white head. Those follow into the taste with a spicy ginger and cinnamon bite. Unlike some other "pumpkin spice" beers, this one actually has a taste of real pumpkin in it. It also tastes like beer with a good caramel malt flavor in the back and some earthy hop bitterness. The body is somewhat thin, even watery, but that’s not bad. Finishes with a lasting pumpkin pie spice flavor and spiciness. A well made and delicious pumpkin ale. willisread (3464) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle from Mitsuya. Pours a clear copper with a nice off-white head that lingers throughout. Huge pumpkin pie with whipped cream nose. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger with lightly roasted pumpkin aromas. Malt backbone balances out the spices well. Slightly sweet on the palate with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with lingering pumpkin pie flavor. Wonderful dessert beer.
