COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each batch of pFriem Pumpkin Bier is made with fresh pumpkin and real spices in addition to the standard malt and hops. That’s why every pint is overflowing with aromas of vanilla, notes of cinnamon and a touch of caramel. We think you’ll agree that it’s just as flavorful as mom’s pumpkin pie and there’s no baking required.

Bottle in Seattle. Soapy white head, pale yellow gold, mostly clear. Fruit spice nose, some saison character. Mellow spiced component. Doesn't scream pumpkin. Sweet vegetal. Nice.

Bottle tasted blind. Everyone thought this was just too much Belgian yeast thy was kicking off spices and sweet esters. Well, upon unblindIng we weee all shocked. I guess it's just spices and sweet. No pumpkin at all. So, 2 disappointing pFriems in a night, how sad.

Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to a snifter showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of soft white foam, and some wavy lacing. The nose was floral, slight soapiness, spice, dried fruit & skins, with pumpkin hidden somewhere in between. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added some ripe & rind-like astringency. Pumpkin was a bit player, but not bad.

Sarlacc83 (2301) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Bottle.

A: Cloudy dark pumpkin color with a foamy white head.

N: Pumpkin, cinnamon, all-spice, graham cracker, biscuit, clove, toast, light pine, earth, peppercorn, esters, and banana.

T: Sweet, lightly bitter, clean and balanced.

M: Medium light body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol.

O: Very tasty. It’s a beer with pumpkin; not vice versa. Worthy.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle:   Amberish in color, a bit dirty, moderate foamy khaki head, fairly nice lacing, assertive carbonation.   Strong spicy nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, graham cracker crust, and a touch of vanilla and orange zest.   Similar on the tongue, a bit like pumpkin pie (with the crust).   Strong in spices, but just short of being overly done.   They linger softley after the finish.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Smooth and clean.   Was a bit skeptical that I wanted to pay $6 for a 12.7oz Pumpkin.   However, this one is a solid example.   Has a bit more to it, vanilla, graham cracker crust, and a little citrus zest.   Aside from Buffalo Bills Black Pumpkin, this one so far is a standout this season.   Reminds me a touch of mulled spiced wine at time s.

When on thanksgiving drink this kind of beer I guess. Nose has vanilla, lemon, clove, some Belgian yeast notes, a little orange. Pours hazy golden orange, thin head. Flavors of the same notes on the nose. Tangy spicy finish. A decent take on a style I don’t normally enjoy. Good job.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Allspice is dominant among estery belgian yeast,clove and a little caramel on the nose. It’s thick and smooth in the mouth with a dryish finish. Lingering pumpkin flesh and spice. Really good stuff.

jsnicholas (687) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle (375ml $6): Somewhat cloud orange with off white head. As advertised, a Belgian pumpkin beer with all the expected tastes. I prefer more subtle spices and less vegetable. But that said, if you like pumpkin ales, this was good.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity pumpkin nose. The flavor is big sweet pumpkin, spices, dry in the finish.
