Papsoe (25056) - 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

Thanks to Azurelimits for bringing this to the big pumpkin bash. Pours a nice orange color with a bit of a white head. The aroma is fairly faint, but tends to focus on actual pumpkin flavors as opposed to an overload of spices. The taste confirms this, as there is some nice, sweet pumpkin and a bit of malt. Mild spicing in the background. Feel is nice and creamy with lower levels of carbonation. Drinks really well. I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile now; a solid pumpkin beer.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid doughy pumpkin pie with all the spices aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced pumpkin pie flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout seasonal beer.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 imperial .. . pours a deep amber orange .. mild but sturdy foam .. . light mouth .. . the spice seems balanced, mild flavour of thanksgiving .. . Authorities say the phony Pope can be recognized by his high-top sneakers and incredibly foul mouth.

deyholla (12289) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a near clear amber orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has plenty of spice with a cinnamon and nutmeg coming through as well as a nice pumpkin note. Flavor begins with pumpkin and has a growing spice note to give a pumpkin pie finish.
