Bomber courtesy of matt7215. Pours copper with a nice, lasting white head. Smells of pumpkin pie spice, fresh pumpkin flesh, caramel, grassy. Tastes of fresh pumpkin, a touch of lemon, spice, pepper, earthy, crisp. This brewer does a great job incorporating flavors and aromas I associate with cutting into fresh pumpkins. Excellent!

Awsome. It has a wonderful balance of sugar and spice and everything nice. It is perhaps their best beer after my Bitter Wife. good job boys! BeckyPez86 (11) - - APR 7, 2015
This beer reminds me of "sugar, spice & everything nice". Pumpkin on the finish. Great Fall beer. Beer drinkers equivalent to the Pumpkin Spice Latte! Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Skeptically, I purchased a bottle from the LC last fall...ended up grabbing another 24 after sampling the first. This pured out a bright, transparent orange with ample white head...aroma was more spice than pumpkin. Flavourwise, I was worried that it would be too much pumpkin or spice but they did a great job here. The pumpkin was not overdone but easily detected, even by non-beer geeks...and just the right amount of spice/herb to balance things out. This was so drinkable that it become my session beer for about a month, last fall.
Lookin forward to the next batch.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 21A). Bottle 65cl - batch n. ?). AROMA: very pleasant pumpkin aroma combined with spices (clove, nutmeg and cinnamon mainly). no esters or other fermentable by-products noticeable. APPEARANCE: Orange / copper, clear, with moussy of-white average retention head. TASTE: distinctive spice flavours (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg). no hop flavours but with a balanced bitterness that lingers towards the end. finishes with a note of cinammon. PALATE: medium body with a velvety palate. moderate to moderate-low carbonation. no astringency. OVERALL: a great vegetable and spices balanced ale.

650ml bomber. Pours a nice somewhat hazy orange colour, with a large white, fluffy head. The aromas are very sweet, lots of pumpkin and spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, ect. Flavours are somewhat complex, very malty the whole way through, bready and creamy texture which I love and would expect from a really good dortmunder/helles, but there’s also traces of pumpkin and nutmeg. No pumpkin pie flavours here, nor much ginger. It has a really nice spicy finish that’s quite tasty, followed by a sweet, almost fruity aftertaste (I can almost taste banana?). This is only the second pumpkin ale I’ve ever had, and it’s completely different from the first, but they’re both great in their own ways. This one definitely puts a lot more emphasis on the pumpkin and spicy aspects of the brew, with a very solid bready malt backbone. Top notch stuff, I swear pumpkin ales are one of the absolute best things about this time of the year! mullet2007 (209) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - NOV 1, 2008
Pours a vaguely hazy deep amber colour with a a thick white head. Smells slightly of bitter hops, some sweet caramel malts, and a few notes of pumpkin pie spice. Flavour is nicely sweet, very strong crystal malt notes coming through. And a very nice pumpkin pie flavour as well. Finish is a perfect dash of hop bitterness and some more spices. It’s quite creamy and thick, and carbonation is low, but very nice. All in all a very nice beer. SuperTiti33 (891) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
