Clear copper coloured body with a very thin, super fast-dying tan head that looks and sounds like a soda. Aroma of spices (of course) showing allspice, nutmeg, canella, cardamom and a bit of ginger as well. Light-bodied; Subdued malt and general beer flavours and just a sweet flavour showing a smooth spicey flavour that is almost like a ’pumpkin spice soda’ than anything else resembling a herb/spice beer. Aftertaste shows some light sweetness from caramel and fruits with a lot of residual spices and not much else. Overall, a pretty spicey, but underwhelming beer with the spices and grain and not much else to make this worthwhile. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes (Fairfax), Virginia on 06-November-2016 sampled just nineteen days later on 25-November-2016 at home in Upstate (New Paltz), New York for US$1,99.

On tap at SLL tasting. Pours hazy orange color with a thin white head. Nice pumpkin, cinnamon, and allspice aromas. Taste is similar well balanced between the spice and pumpkin, with more cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Very drinkable, not too sweet, and the pumpkin is again nice. Medium-thin bodied, with good carbonation. hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
12oz bottle. Not sure why I bother with spice beers anymore as I really hate over spiced beers. Give me pumpkins not the spices that go along with it. I guess I just keep hoping for that one beer, but should know better when the word Spiced is in the name. As advertised, a spiced harvest beer so I’ll give it to them there. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Body is warm golden with thin tan head. Nose is sweet, nutmeg, oaky. Taste is pumpkin for sure, some sweet, malts, then gets plenty sour. Not my thing at all. Lots of pumpkin in the finish too. Booh. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle. Nutmeg, light cinnamon and caramel malt aroma. Hazy amber with moderate head. Sweet creamy malt and strong bitter nutmeg flavor. Medium body. Hard to get past the nutmeg.

A bit cloudy, and a bit over-fizzy. Nice tasting, just enough spiciness. Not bad. Bork (461) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Light and watery beverage loaded with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, clove and other fall/Christmas flavoring. Bears little to no resemblance to beer, and even that aside is not worth the time. Patrickctenchi (6806) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Nearly clear, amber-orange with a small cream-white head.
Ginger, clove, spice aroma.
Sweet ginger, nutmeg, clove, pie-spice flavours.
A bit of pumpkin-ness...
Toffee malt....more and more ginger tones as it warms.
Pretty good...bright. Travlr (26406) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Draft. Hazy amber color, medium off white head. Aroma of gingerbread. Taste is toasted gingerbread. Decent. ttutony (949) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Copper color with a thin white head. Spicy cinnamon/clove/nutmeg fall type aromas. Crystal malt with fall spice flavors on the palate.
