Draft. Poured a hazy orange with a super thin white head. Not a good example of a pumpkin beer. The pie spices totally overwhelmed the other flavors, especially since it was a thin beer. Needed to highlight the pumpkin richness more. Cloyingly sweet.
Pours a dark reddish color. Notes of spice, licorice, brown sugar, and earth. Lively mouthfeel. DCLawyer (2845) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Draft sampler at the brewpub. Pours a dark copper with small offwhite head.Lots of seasonal spices with definite pumpkin presence. I am admittedly not a big fan of most pumpkin beers, and Punkinator did not stand out in any positive way for me. Taste is a bit muddled and too much spice. solidfunk (8954) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Light spice and light fours. Pours orange with OK head and lacing. A little sweet and a little sour on finish. Tap at Crios. GenDV138 (7284) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2014
4 oz cask pour at Mad Fox, freshly tapped right after I ordered it! Clear light golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of spices and pumpkin. Tastes of big pumpkins, spices, light herbs, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Might be the best batch they’ve brewed of this, pumpkin flavors were very nice.

Tap at Mad Fox. Pours a low haze orange. Weak head. No lace. Intense fall spice nose with clove, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is tangy, light, citric, spice medley. Clean, no cloying, no heaviness. Nice.
