An open bottle fills the room with fall scents and a fresh pumpkin pie in the oven. Orange-brown appearance that fills your mouth with the fall season greatness! One of the best tasting and well balanced pumpking beers I have tasted. Highly recommend! SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours dark amber orange with a large beige head. Smells of caramel, pumpkin, and nutmeg. Taste is caramel, pumpkin, and pie spices. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Pumpkinfest finishes with a mild spice kick. cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours with a relatively low amount of carbonation. Strong aroma of cloves, cinnamon and brown sugar. Basically, it smells like a Thanksgiving table! It’s surprisingly clear and lighter in color than many pumpkin ales. I’m guessing that’s where the Oktoberfest portion comes in. It has a balanced sweet flavor that’s definitely more akin to an Oktoberfest, but that’s not a criticism. It has a more full body than I’d expect from a beer that’s so light in appearance, and the flavors linger long enough to draw you back.
Overall, this is an amazing example of a pumpkin ale with a brilliant taste. It’s rare to find a pumpkin ale that could be described as "sessionable", but this is one of them. Really outstanding beer. iron_maiden (18) - Newnan, Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 This is an excellent fall pumpkin beer.
More of a Pumpkin than an Oktoberfest.
Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pumpkin.
Tastes is the same as the nose..Delicious !

Smells AWESOME. I want to eat this beer. Pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel. Pours orangey with a little head that quickly dissipated. Doesn’t taste quite as good as it smells, but still tasty. Nice little bit of fizz to it. Really tasty beer.

Wow. my favorite fall beer so far. Wonderful sweet aroma with cinnamon and pumpkin. Nice, bold red-orange color. The taste is a perfect balance of sweet and bitter with a clean finish. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2015
