Slight cinnamon taste. Very nice. Kind of like a pumpkin and cinnamon hinted Newcastle Brown.

I really liked this! On tap from the brewery. Good spice depth, lots of pumpkin flavor. Also some molasses. Great stuff! superspak (5798) - Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/19/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, wheat, gingerbread, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, wheat, gingerbread, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, gingerbread, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice session pumpkin wheat ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Nouveauté au Québec. Bière offerte dans une caisse mixte d’automne. Bière de couleur brique avec une mousse aussi mince que fugace. Au nez, c’est très fruité et épicé à la fois : sucre d’orge, vanille, muscade. En bouche, c’est également puissant et ça goûte la tarte à la citrouille épicée. Cette bière me fait penser à la St-Ambroise à la citrouille qui est un excellent produit. J’aime beaucoup! Cheers! mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2009
[2530-20091013] Tap. A little grainy spice pumpkin fruit aroma, more as it warms. Clear, brown orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Lovely pumpkin pie crust and allspice, a little gingery pepper and hints of fruits. Medium body. Lovely brew, quite surprising.

I’ve had this brew a few times on tap but this is the first time I bought it in bottles to try a few in a row and really evaluate it. The verdict is in – this is a very decent pumpkin ale, probably the best in the local market. Pours a shimmering orange color with an off-white cap. Pungent aromas of pumpkin spice, grains and musty herbaceous pumpkin. Between the spices, hops and carbonation, the front side of the flavor profile is very sharp and peppery, this then mellows as the malt and pumpkin tastes arrive to give some fair balance and light complexity. The finish is sharp and drying with spice and hops providing a spicy bittering. A really great Canadian pumpkin ale Raistlin (431) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours a dark amber with a sticky white head. The nose is pumpkin and mild spices but quite strong overall with toffee and nutty notes. Just a tinge of sweetness with pumpkin flavour as well as a mild clove and nutmeg spice. Really enjoyable beer on its own or with spicy dish.

On tap at the brewpub - came a mostly clear foxy amber with a small white head that had clearly diminished in the two minutes between pouring and serving. Left some nice lace. Enticing aroma of soft spices, cinnamon and clove stood out, alongside sweet malt. Flavour is wonderfully balanced, with all aspects coming through at one point point - the spice is upfront, then quickly followed by a bit of vanilla and then the bready malts and wheat shine through. Lovely dry and biscuity finish that is very reminiscent of pie-crust. Never over the top, superbly drinkable, a sessionable pumpkin if there ever was one. paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 4, 2010
Tap at brewery. lots of pumpkin in the aroma. It actually smells like real pumpkin, unlike most. Plenty of nutmeg and fresh malts. Taste is similar. Pumpkin, rich bakery malts, lots of spice.
