Bottle. Nose is cinnamon and spice, coriander, orange, wheat. Maybe a bit of pumpkin. Glowing orange, cloudy, with lace. Effervescent. Sweet and fruity, orange peel and wheat, strange spice combination, witbier with pumpkin pie. Doesn’t work. Astringent finish.

Originally rated on 10/22/14. Light orange/copper body, with a white foamy head that leaves some fair lace. Aromas of cinnamon, and allspice, followed up with some sweet malts and pumpkin. Flavor starts with sweet malts followed by the familiar, but subdued pumpkin and spice flavors.It’s a medium flavored, easy drinking pumpkin beer thats not overly sweet or spiced. firefly765 (195) - - MAY 19, 2015
12 ounce bottle porous a copper orange color with lots of sediment particles. Huge pumpkin and cinnamon pumpkin pie spice aromas. Nice balance of hop bitterness and clove and multi sweetness in the end. Medium level of carbonation. Very nice beer. tfontana (976) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is, surprise, surprise like pumpkin pie--cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Appearance is hazy orange with consistent carbonation and small white head with decent retention and negligible lacing. Taste is moderately sweet. Palate is medium bodied, milky texture, with average carbonation with above average kick at the tip of the tongue toward the finish, which is short. Overall a moderately flavorful representative of the genre. No surprises here to the good or bad. ordybill (1759) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2015

Taste- Great pumpkin flavor, it resembles pumpkin pie.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with mild carbonation.

I rather enjoyed this one. I'd say it's one of the better pumpkin varieties out there.

Very light on the pumpkin flavor. Brown sugar taste to it. Middle of the road seasonal beer. ryanscourt (1477) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Cloudy orange color. Aroma minimal and palat is pretty boring. Reminds me of a pumpkin blue moon.
