COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin beers have been an American tradition since the pilgrims hit Plymouth Rock while Oktoberfest beers have been brewed in Germany since not long after Prince Ludwig got hitched in 1810. Now Terrapin is “carving” out our own special brew by combining these two great styles into a unique PUMPKINFEST beer...This Side Project has all the complex maltiness of a great Oktoberfest lager with the delicate spiciness of grandma’s fresh baked pumpkin pie.

Formerly Terrapin Side Project Pumpkinfest.

Not much head on the pour although I think this may have been my fault. I had this from a bottle 9/15/10. I love the smell nice pumpkin, nutmeg and coriander smell along with slight cloves really makes me think of autumn. I taste pumpkin, almost like pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon and bread notes. Medium bodied beer. I like this pumpkin beer a lot.

Bottle from Norm’s Beer and Wine. Pumpkin and malt aroma. Medium dark orange appearance, somewhat clear. Sweet taste. Smooth palate. Covers alcohol well. An interesting combination of a pumpkin beer and an oktoberfest. Oktoberfest’s aren’t my favorite, but for a pumpkin beer this isn’t bad. Could probably have a few in a night.

2010 bottle, poured a deep copper color with no head. Aroma was of some sweet malts, various spices, it honestly smells like Fall. Very appropriate for the coming season. Flavors were quite spicy, some pumpkin flavors in the finish, small bitterness too. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, carbonation on point. A good offering from Terrapin in a style that is lacking substance. This was decent for sure.

Bottle from Chan’s Wine World in Destin, FL. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Mouthfeel is creamy, but not too thick. Tastes of pumpkin pie--really amazing. This is one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted. It’s like Thanksgiving in a glass.

#8 pumpkinfest from bocky consumed 4/9/10. pale pumpkin custard colored with an aggressive short lived whitish head. loads of ginger powder on the nose... combined with clove, nutmeg, cracker dough, brown sugar and some pumpkin-y earthy sweetness. the flavor is the same... tons of ginger and a warm spiced finish. crispy spicy texture in the medium body. 7/3/7/3/14/3.4

A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. great level of sweetness, great style to add the spice to. great stuff.

Pours orange copper with a vanishing white head. Spiced, malty nose with some pumpkin. Flavor is malty with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other pumpkin pie spices. Nice medium body with fizzy carbonation. Lightly sweet and spiced finish. I like this one because the pumpkin is noticeable but not overpowering.

kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle, RBWG 2010. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a small fizzy white head. Heavily spiced nose with a little natural smelling pumpkin. Allspice & nutmeg mostly over a sweet caramel maltiness. The flavor is actually pretty bland for all the spice on the nose. Lightly sweet caramel malt finish with some lingering spices. Light to medium bodied with a little clingy sweetness. Not bad, but probably a little lacking in pumpkin flavor.

Bomber from Frugal MacDoogal’s in Nashville. Pours a clear orangish-copper color with a nicely formed whitish-yellow head. Aroma is pumpkin pie for the most part. Spice level is just about right. Flavor also has the spice level dialed in pretty well. Mildly sweet caramel malt, pumpkin, and pumpkin spice. Smooth and fairly creamy on the mouthfeel with medium-full body. A very nice and well-balanced pumpkin beer overall. Not quite the best pumpkin beer I’ve had, but up there. I killed the entire bomber fairly easily.
