crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - OCT 14, 2005
pretty good, poured a straw-golden color with a white head. A mix of cinnamon and coriandor in the aroma. Taste was yeasty at first but finished with a sweet cinnamon pumpkin bite.

Bottle. Pours a nice pilsner-looking straw colored beer with a thin white head. Strong cinnamon nose and full allspice. Hot on the tongue with some bitterness..or is that the cinnamon? A bit of vanilla. Dusty on the palate. A nice pumpkin.

Golden color, nearly no head. Cinnamon and squash nose. Light and weak cinnamon taste, also squash, cookie dough and apples. Lively carbonated. I really get used to those Pumpkin stuff ;-)

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Bottle. Aroma features pumpkin, cinammon, and other harvest spices. Pours a clear gold, with a nice head, good carbonation, and slight lacing. Flavor is straight pumpkin with a smidgen of cinammon and nutmeg. Palate is a bit watery, but the taste hides it. The best pumpkin ale Ive had by far.

Ungstrup (36934) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 [At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of cinnamon and pumpkin - both very powerful notes. The flavor is sweet and again with powerful notes of cinnamon and pumpkin, but the body is thin. To me this is a Christmas beer - drink it with spiced Christmas cookies.
