In the tradition of the farmhouse ales of Belgiums southern countryside, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin is brewed with a blend of rye, wheat and barley, earthy flavoring hops and a classic saison yeast. Beyond this, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin breaks totally free of classic style guidelines. Ripe, flame roasted Virginia sugar pumpkins and brown sugar provide a hearty backbone to this 8.5% ABV beer. Freshly ground Ceylon cinnamon, whole Grenada nutmeg, whole Madegascar clove and whole allspice are harmonized with pounds of freshly sliced organic ginger root. A beautiful hue of autumn russet, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin displays a voluminous head, with a bouquet of aromatic fresh spice. Medium to full in body, this ale offers a balanced flavor of caramelized pumpkin and pie spices, with a lingering finish laced with a hint of fresh ginger. Sugar pumpkins came from the Farm to Family Market on Mechanicsville Turnpike. Peruvian organic ginger came from Ellwood Thompsons Local Market in Carytown. Pumpkin Pie Spice came from C.F. Sauer, right around the corner from Hardywood. Whole Ceylon cinnamon, whole Grenada nutmeg, whole Madagascar cloves and whole allspice came from Penzys Spices in Carytown. All are local Richmond businesses.

The rye gives this beer a nice mellow flavor -- its not too spicy and not too sweet, and it definitely doesnt taste as processed or artificial as many beers of its kind. Finishes a little slick and evaporates at the end, but otherwise has a nice malty character. Balanced for a pumpkin ale.

Bottle from Wegmans bought in Fall 2014 - pours clear orange with some yeasty bits floating in it. Aroma is all pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. Very pumpkin pie, but I wish in had more of the barnyard or funk you find in a typical farmhouse style ale.

chinchill (4679) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Mildly funky aroma with less fink in the still very complex flavor. Surprisingly lively and tingly carbonation. Spicy but not so much as to mask the malts and pumpkin.
