Long-lasting thin head. Golden yellow. Decent nose. Interesting take on a pumpkin ale with its slight cranberry tang. Easily drinkable. stevoj (5364) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Essence of gingerbread, amber with very thick creamy head. Else it’s not as rich as some of the other fall pumpkin beers I’ve tried recently. Not bad, but not great. bigguns22 (800) - Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Very clean and enjoyable pumpkin beer. Pour is orange to lite amber with a full off white head. Aroma is nice; malty with a touch of spice. Over all flavors and lite and pleasant but still have enough off the pumpkin and spices to remind you of the fall. jdavidh (164) - California, USA - SEP 24, 2013
This is a quite tasty pumpkin beer. It’s nicely balanced, and the pumpkin sweetness is offset by the spices and tartness of the cranberry. Very tasty and goes down smooth. Definitely enjoyed this one! maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Draught. Pours an orange-amber color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is pretty much what you expect, with your average pumpkin spice palate coming through. Taste was slightly sweet with the spices coming through, but seemed remarkably boring. Meh.

The tasted is over spiced and the cranberry they added to be "different" give this ale a puckering taste not suitable for pumpkin ales SFtaster (69) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 23, 2013
On draft at 2013 Tour de Fat in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. New Belgium Brewery puts on this fundraiser every year to benefit the SF Bicycle Coalition and Bay Trails. New Belgium donates the beer and we enjoy a day of music, fun, and sun in GG Park. The beer is OK. Spice ales are not one of my favorite styles, but this was better than average.

Pours a murky orange with a little head. Big time spice aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is all about the spice and pumpkin in this one. I think I have decided that I dont particularly care for pumpkin beers but that’s not saying that this is a bad beer, just nothing I really see myself going out of my way to enjoy.

Pours an orange squash color with a distinct cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Taste has nutmeg and cinnamon throughout the beer. I can’t taste the cranberry juice but the spice comes directly through. Overall another tasty beer from New Belgium. emacgee (4698) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2013
I feel stupid rating pumpkin beers now. They’re all the same. Clean soft copper pour with an off white head. Spicy and herbal nose with some gourdy/pumpkin notes. Flavor is the same. It’s nice enough and clean but nothing to write home about.
