UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 Bottle poured into glass. Smells as if I just walked into a kitchen where pumpkin pie was baking. I’m usually not interested in pumpkin beers but this one caught my attention. It really does taste like they put baked pumpkin goods into liquid form. It’s a little too sweet for my taste but I’d certainly share a bottle with friends.... maybe keep a bottle in the cellar and see how it tastes next year.
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, spicy nose with pumpkin, caramel, ginger, clove, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, chocolate and gingerbread cake. Malty, vegetal, spicy taste with notes of pumpkin, chocolate, dried ginger, orange peel, clove, coconut, ginger biscuits and a balanced spicy bitterness. Medium body, with a balanced sweetness. Tasty, but a but too spicy and sticky to be in perfect balance. Still, nice one. k0mpsa (2911) - Tuusula, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2017

Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom’s place. Murky gold. Rich spicy aroma of clove, cinnamon, bundt cake, nutmeg and molasses with grade B maple syrup. Sweet and very spicy, like Rosh HaShana honey cake. Medium body, spicy and warm finish, soft fizz. Surprisingly good, even though it’s 2015 edition. weark (787) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - DEC 6, 2016

On tap at Stout, NYC on 12-Nov-2016. Served in a stemmed tulip glass with the rim soaked in wet sugar and cinnamon. Orange amber in colour with a thick white head. Aroma of fruit, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body and soft/medium carbonation. A fruity desert like flavour. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and alcohol. Interesting but enjoyable.

22oz bottle (14,15) and on tap at SLL tasting (13,14). Pours an amber orange color with a whitish that head quickly recedes to a small collar. Nice pumpkin pie, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg aroma. There is pumpkin in the taste, however, the spices also play a big role. Has a herbal hop profile that leads to the finish. There is an alcohol warming in the finish. Medium bodied to full and chewy.

Appearance is a slightly hazy dark yellow with little head. Aroma is extremely spicy or rather spiced; reminds me a lot of Christmas. Apart from the unique "pumpkiness" cinnamon is especially apparent. Flavour is also extremely spicy, quite malty sweet from the pumpkin. Has a beautiful long finish of cinnamon and other spices associated with Christmas and is even a tad warming. Extremely good! rayaron (1785) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 3, 2016

Pours beautiful golden orange with very little carbonation. Initial aroma is cinnamon and allspice. Very light pumpkin flavor with a dry finish. This is the right time to drink this beer.
