The Gruntled Pumpkin planted the seed and started a revolution for all of pumpkin-kind. To guard the promising vines of the future that would eventually blossom to become the bottom of the barrel (and thats a good thing) of this new pumpkin ale.

Beerdedone (3372) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014

12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a slightly chill hazed brighter burnt orange body with a smaller foamy quick fading off white head. Aroma started off with some pumpkin pie spice, fresh pumpkin meat, pumpkin seeds, dough. Medium body, sort of a milky mouthfeel with softer carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor isnt that good, some pumpkin meat, bad candy, brown bread and ight spices.

hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear in a light shade of orange, small and non lasting white head. Aroma of spices, pumpkin and malts. Taste is sweet, malty, lots of pumpkin and spice, a bit hoppy too. Good beer, quite drinkable.

pjames317 (94) - Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours an odd lighter orange, a color normally reserved for pale ales, not pumpkins. Minimal head, somewhat fizzy. Aroma is overwhelming spice; clov, cinnamon, nutmeg. Pumpkin pie, sure. This had been done before, many times. And quite frankly, this doesnt hold up well to those others who were first to market and therefore incurred more risk in consumer acceptance. Seems everyone wants a slice of the gimmicky pumpkin ale pie. Taste is somewhat thin and overly fizzy/carbonated. Booze isnt masked terribly well. This beer needs work. But in the end, it is a pumpkin ale and for that I enjoyed it to some extent.

GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle Poured into a pint glass -- Very heavily carbonated, four finger-width head. Aroma is faint pumpkin and a hint of toffee. Flavor is the same, but flavor is greatly hindered by the excessive carbonation. Not a great pumpkin.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2014
Golden in the glass with a nearly white head. Fruity-spicy in the nose, hints of peach and - of course - pumpkin. The beer starts smooth, fruity. Malty and not too sweet body. The mainpart is malty, a bit yeasty, nice subtle pumpkin-aroma with smooth sweetness. The aftertaste in smooth, pumpkin and slightly sweetness.
Nice brew, but could be much more spic and pumpkin in it! --> 10/12/10/19

dfinney23 (3133) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Very much just a pumpkin ale, as opposed to a pumpkin *pie* ale. Fruity pumpkin with a somewhat bitter (hop?) finish.

nasmith003 (252) - Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Fruity aroma with a nice golden orange color. Malty with a sharp hop bite at the end. Lingering aftertaste of hops.
