Pours a dark reddish color. Notes of spice, licorice, brown sugar, and earth. Lively mouthfeel. Drake (13728) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Grower from the brewery, filled 10/20/10 and opened 10/21/10. Pours a clear orange color with a thin frothy offwhite head. Fair poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove. The taste is pumpkin and spices with a toasty finish. Thin bodied. The flavor is good but rather weak.

Poured right from the fermenter on tour at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with some frothy white head. Big, spicy nose, nutmeg, ginger, clove, root veg. Flavor has a big zip from the ginger, almost a wasabi like zing to it, after that fades you get the sweetness, carrot, banana bread, some yeast. Medium bodied, zippy finish.

On draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Aroma of allspice and cloves. Pumpkin pie spices dominate the flavor. Travlr (24704) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Cask at the source. Cloudy orange amber color, small white head. Aroma of spice and nuts. Taste is hot spice. OK.

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 (8943) - 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. matthewgerke (67) - - DEC 14, 2012
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.
