Cíest What Fall Fest.
Aroma is pumpkin puree, with nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves, orange/amber, wearing a small off-white head. Taste is a milder version of the aromatics for pumpkin pie filling. Medium bodied, balanced, bitter, dry, very tasty, pleasant spicy aftertaste. Very good, like pumpkin pie in a glass. Glad to see these folks trying new stuff!

Draught. At Cíest What Beer thing September 2007. Clear amber with a wispy white head. Decent real pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice aroma, much better than the Grand River offering sampled at the same time (7+). Tangy, spicy pumpkin flavour, perhaps a bit lacking in malt body. Watery body, but nice life and spiciness on the palate, with a tingly finish to it - decent beer, a little too light. Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
From bottle. Delicate aroma of pumpkin and sweet spices. Syrup and strong hint of cinnamon. Great looking orange/copper colour with white head. Pumpkin flavour, strongly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Smooth texture. Rich finish. This beer grows on you. Now I’m towards the end I love it. The spices in this beer remind me of a Christmas ale. cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2008
650ml bottle Agaguk (122) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2009
I tried this beer on September 30, 2008 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent orangy-gold with a thin light brown head that lingered. The aroma was weakly pumpkin-like, with some grassy malts, and cinnamon. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was malty, but there was a hint of pumpkin, and more than a hint of cinnamon.
Orange amber with full white head. Aroma: pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and clove. Flavor is pritty much the same as the aroma. Palate: creamy and thick a well balance beer.

Orangey/Dark Gold colour, smells like clove, with a big white head with pretty solid lacing Taste is of pumpkin and clove with a bit of light bitterness. Definitely pumpkin, pretty good to try but definitely not the best. decimator (51) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2009
650ml bottle (with a cool orange jack-o-lantern) poured into a pint glass. Poured a clear golden color with a bit of an orange tint. The 1" head didnít last long. The aroma is where this beer shined. Smells like pumpkin pie! Yum, I love pumpkin pie! Iím picking up plenty up desert spice aromas such as nutmeg, cloves & allspice and some sweet pumpkin flesh. After the first smell my expectations were high. I was a bit disappointed by the taste. Sure, thereís was a taste of pumpkin and desert spices among the sweet malts and light hops but it was quite mild. Certainly milder then the aroma indicated. Could have had more intensity, a bit more sweetness and more spiciness. Mouthfeel was that of an average beer. It didnít stand out for me. Itís was OK to drink. Made for a good desert beverage after my dinner. I donít hate this beer. I just think thereís room for improvement. Iíll probably have it again around Thanksgiving and/or Halloween.

650mL bottle. Not a bad beer, but not a big fan of pumpkin beers in general. Orange colour, small white head. Nose of cloves, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Medium body, taste of more pumpkin and spice, relatively sweet. Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2009
Nutmeg and allspice ale aroma. Golden with thick white head that thins quickly with a little lacing. Dry, bitter, nutmeg, allspice taste. Concentrated on the spices but they forgot the pumpkin. rederic (3335) - montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2009
