4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
DATE TASTED: November 2, 2013... GLASSWARE: Chimay goblet... OCCASION: post-Halloween weekend relaxation... APPEARANCE: beautifully clear, orange body that frames a bubbling cauldron of steady effervescence; a thin ring of white head produces a dearth of lacing--appropriately dramatic and dark... AROMA: sugary pumpkin, almond nut/butter scents weave with vanilla/cinnamon/nutmeg--complex and rewarding...PALATE: at 8.6% ABV, impressively smooth and medium-bodied; goblet-worthy smoothness with a delayed warming texture ...TASTE: brilliantly caramelized malts that provide a formidable base for the pumpkin puree; bewitching, even/especially for those of us not entirely agog over pumpkin flavored anythings...OVERALL: a victory in the genre...hate to make generalizations, but Southern Tier is bold, flavorful and easily drinkable in seemingly all of their beer profile--a possible Top Five US Brewery, if I were to draft a list...
bottled - cloudy orange color. Great pumpkin aroma. Sweet pumpkin flavor. Good stuff. shawnmurphy (666) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours clear orange-gold with a tiny spritz of off-white head and the tiniest bit of lacing. Aroma: caramel, faint pumpkin pie spices. Flavor: malt-forward (caramel, butterscotch), cinnamon nutmeg, allspice and vanilla with a finishing spicy bitterness. Mouthfeel: full-bodied; slick on tongue; egg nog creaminess.

2011er vintage bottle from my cellar. Smooth mild nose. The beer starts mild and smooth, round and refreshing. Easy to drink, mild and fruity. Long smooth and mild refreshing aftertaste. Sessionable and mild. Nice! Light with lots of pumpkin. Beerhunter111 (23265) - Beerland, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2017
Bottle shared with Erzengel! A almost clear dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, dry spices, pumpkin. Taste of sweet cinnamon, pumpkin, red malt, herbs, low bitterness. GlasgowTAD (2007) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle thanks to Ben. Pours clear copper with a little white head which soon recedes. Aroma is pumpkin, spice and a bit of hay aroma. Taste is pumpkin spice, harsh spice bitterness and not much else going on.

Pours light orange golden and mostly translucent. Tastes of spices, nutmeg, Brown sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin. It has a resinous, medium to full bodied palate with moderate carbonation. It’s spicy and dry. A big spice/herb/vegetable beer with a cinnamon and brown sugar finish. MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2017
Intense pumpkin spices, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, molasses, honey. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More pumpkin spices, cloves, nutmeg, sweet grain and bread malts, caramel, molasses, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Very nice Pumpkin Ale, rich and intense. Bottle from Milk & Hops Astor, Manhattan. Troupis (279) - - OCT 27, 2017
Lots added at the end of the process makes this not work for me. The underlying beer is actually really strong.
Great aroma and robust flavor.

12oz bottle poured at home. Puts hazy fall/Texas/pumpkin orange. Not much aroma bit of malt some spice. Taste is a balance of warm malt bourbon vanilla clove and bitterness. Interesting balance of sweet spicy hoppy.
