Bottle. Hugely spicy aroma. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Pours copper with some amber highlights. Flavor is spicy initially, loses a bit in the middle, then kicks you in the ass with some massive spice on the finish. Medium bodied. Damn... this one’s gonna give me heartburn.

Sampled from 12-oz bottle at Cellar’s Wine and Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a copper amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a ring and film top. Aroma of spiced pumpkin filling, cinnamon, nutmeg and some mince meat raisin. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a pumpkin filling flavor. Finish is semi-sweet with a spicey pumpkin aftertaste. No doubt, Mr. Peter Peter would be proud of this one. KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Orangish amber in color. About two fingers of dirty white head that dissipates quickly. Strong smell of spices. Hint of pumkin with a stronger hint of ginger. dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Pours a nice yellowish orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma obvious of pumpkin, spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel. Flavor matches well and comes together nicely, but I am just not so sure pumpkin in my beer is something I enjoy quite yet. Need to try a few more. jsquire (4563) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Amber colored beer with a short lived off white head that left moderate lacing on the glass. Nose of powdered sugar sweetness and pumpkin pie spices. After I had a few sips of this I realized what I was tasting. This is like the frosting on carrot cake. Really sweet cream cheese, with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spices thrown in. Almost a dry, dusty spice flavor, and the sweetness of that frosting just gets me. Interesting pumpkin beer.

2007: Light orange triaminic color. Dishsoap head. Hazy. Not much lace.
Spicy and with a nice (ok obviously) pumpkin scent. Very nice and quite rich. Has a cake-like sugary sweetness.
The spicy pumpkin pie flavor is really delicious. Has a very spicy aftertaste. A bit out of season, but warm and fuzzy nonetheless.
Milky and thick. Leaves a nice spicy film. A tad dry in the finish. Spicy and tastes good. Perfect for a chilly autumn night. Tmoney99 (14854) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy doughy pumpkin pie aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium balanced spicy flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Good seasonal beer.

Red-tinged gold, little head, minimal lacing. Mild pumpkin and spice aroma. Lighter mouthfeel, crisp carbonation. Drinkable but unremarkable. wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Bottlee - Pours a light amber. Medium sized white head. Good lacing. Very impressive spicy aroma. Easy drinking. Doesn’t have classic pumpkin tase, however there is some sweet maltiness. Overall solid seasonal beer. Dorwart (2607) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Pretty dense off-white head of fine bubbles. Lots of gingerbread and nutmeg in the aroma. Color is a slightly hazy copper. Soft malty mouthfeel with a bit of dry spices and a tad of chalkyness. Some vegetal flavors and spices. An ok spiced ale.
