The funny thing about this brew is that I smell and taste old-fashioned grape salt water taffy; no doubt a fruity ester... There is a background note of nutmeg, if faint. The pumpkin flavor does not shine, nor does the overall flavor; not bad, just not to my liking.

( 22oz bomber thanks to BMan1113VR) Pours clear orange with nice oily bubbles. Nose of sourness, pumpkin mash and cinnamon. Taste is heavy on cinnamon, bad/rotten pumpkin and lingers the same way on my tongue. Really not very well done.

deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle shared with others. Poured a clear deep orange with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of strong intense spice that overwhelmed any other note trying to come through. Flavor was similar with over powering cinnamon and other spices dominating the whole beer and note allowing the pumpkin to come through.
