Bomber. Poured pumpkiny orange with a short-ish lived off-white head. The aroma picked up warm pumpkin meat and a touch of honey with plenty of pumpkin-related spicage around (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and a touch of vanilla).. warm, enjoyable sugars tickled the back of the nose. The flavor found about what I expected and wanted.. pumpkin meat and biscuity notes at the core, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla around.. tacky spices over roasty pumpkin on the finish.. tasty stuff. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate, with some tartness from the spices.. very enjoyable brew all around.

22 oz. bottle from 5000. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma reminds me of Frisch’s pumpkin pie; sweet, pumpkin, the usual suspects of spices. The flavor did not disappoint. This was a liquified version of Frisch’s pumpkin pie with the whipped cream. Everything worked well together; sweet, pumpkin, spices. Definitely one of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of ditmier. Only 7.7% in my version. Pours an almost clear deep golden with a small off-white head. Sophisticated exotic fruit aroma and spices of course. Medium body, again fruit and caramel with a pleasant spiciness. Some decent hoppiness in the finish. One of the better pumpkin beers. 230211
