Bottle to half-pint glass. Pours a fairly transparent pale burnt orange with off-white head that dissipates into razor-thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells sweet with notes of Belgian yeast, caramel, nutmeg, and cinnamon with a bit of pumpkin in the background. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. The pumpkin comes through more, but not in a good way. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Meh.

This beer tastes artificial and contrived. I imagine a Budweiser being altered with Mrs. Smith's pie filling.

It came in a variety pack with some of my favorite flavors and I wasn’t too impressed. The only thing I enjoyed about it was the aroma. Had a good scent, but I wasn’t very impressed with the taste. It’s not the worst beer by any means, it’s just mediocre.

Not bad. Pours a nice orange. Aromas of nice sweet butter and pumpkin. Flavors fall short. No sweetness.. A bit bitter on the end. Average.

Surprisingly not cloudy. I expected a bit more haziness. Too much carbonation. Head evaporates quickly. Aroma was surprisingly citrusy...almost a spring/summer beer aroma. Very little pumpkin in the taste. Starts more bitter than it finishes.

Pours a honey golden mildly murky color. Short white head that fades very quickly. Banana bread nose. Medium body with a crispy carbonation. Subtle pumpkin notes are balanced by the malt.

12 fl. oz. on tap @ McGreevy’s. Pours clear orange with a low head. Aroma is malts with some pumpkin and spices. Flavor is more bland, with the pumpkin and spices more on the background. Not bad, but has "big brewery" written all over it.

Very cinnamony smell, taste is the same, smooth and malty, tad bit watery but good pumpkin taste

Twelve oz bottle. Nose is mildly pumpkin and wheat. Taste is deceptively good pumpkin, mild wheat presence. Body is thinner and lively. Not a bad beer though. Better than expected.

For a guy that is not the biggest fan of pumpkin beers I didn’t mind this one as much as some of the more "crafty" labels. Pours a hazy golden amber with minimal white head. Nose is all pumpkin and some cinnamon and nutmeggy notes. Flavor is pumpkin, wheat, and spice. Not as much spice as the aroma as in the taste. Pleasantly surprised.
