On tap at Maple Shade. Amber color. Small white head. Big spicy nose. Bittersweet and spicy, as expected. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and Belgian yeast notes. Vegetal notes with candylike, boozy tendencies. j12601 (13466) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2015

Draft. Very sweet beer. Not as flavorful as the best of the pumpkin beers, eg. Pumking or Sam Adams Fat Jack. Needs less sugar, more pumpkin and more spice. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2014
On draft at Iron Hill Voorhees. Poured a clear dark amber color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet grain, earth, cinnamon, clove, and caramel. Taste is much the same. Lots of caramel maltiness, banana, belgian yeast, cinnamon, and clove. ganache (6106) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Tap in Voorhees. Deeper copper than the Pumpkin Ale, into brown with a short white head. Relative to the standard Pumpkin Ale, focuses much more on the sweet Belgian yeast, some mineral content. Cinnamon-clove-allspice-nutmeg, lighter body with yeast slime, some etoh poking out along with minimal fusels which blend nicely with the clove. Very gooey, sticky, goopey medium body, flattish and a nice iteration in a new direction.BeerandBlues2 (14403) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Strangely enough, I taste less actual pumpkin in this than in the standard Pumpkin Ale, which may not have any at all!
Tap at Maple Shade. Pours lightly hazy amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast esters and spices, biscuit and cookie malt, chocolate and brown sugar. Flavor is malt dominant with spices, pumpkin, light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation. Travlr (26943) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Draft. Murky amber briwn color. Aroma of gourd, light spice. Nice to taste the gourd in this one, sweet brown sugar also.
