In the tradition of the farmhouse ales of Belgium’s 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.

Bottle. Deep amber color, small white edge head. Aroma of acetone, booze, spice. Taste is boozy spice. Not my cup of tea.

mcberko (18573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very hot, with earthy notes, pumpkin spice, and alcohol. Flavour is along the same lines, with alcohol, pumpkin spices, and earth. Pretty hot and the notes don’t really work together. Meh.

Ferris (16295) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle - Lots of spice and a bit of perfume. Clear gold with a thin white head. Tons of clove and really way too much spice. Not good.

Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Sampled a few times at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange color with not much head. Tart aroma with notes of pumpkin, spice and some phenolic notes. Nutmeg comes through. The taste is lightly tart with notes of pumpkin, faint butter, stone fruits and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. Lingering spiciness but nicely balanced.

BeerandBlues2 (13697) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle shared by Butters. Pours clear amber with an average, fizzy off-white head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is moderate pumpkin and mixed spices, earthy and farmhouse yeast, and graham cracker. Flavor is sweet malt, mixed pie spices, pumpkin, moderate malt and a sweet finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amber color with an averaged sized head. Pumpkins, spices, and caramel. Fine example of a pumpkin beer (but again, I prefer less spices and all pumpkin)..

deyholla (12031) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade. Pours a cloudy gold with a brown hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of spice with a bit of sweet grain and just a hint of pumpkin. Flavor has a combination of pumpkin spice, sweet grains and a bit pumpkin.

daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Amberish pour, white head. Spice, rye, pumpkin, vanilla, boozy. A lot going on.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2014
750 reserve from Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Nose is extremely spicy. like someone tossed some pumpkin pie with ginger and oregano. Tastes of pumpkin, spice, coriander, allspice, cardamom, and a complex finish. This one is constructed well, and very complex.
