One of the better ones in its genre... actually the first I’ve had that I’d try again! I won’t though since I’m a ticker through-and-through for the moment.

Nice combination of sweet and bitter, with the pumpkin adding to the former, but not in an artificial way. I can even taste the hops.
A pumpkin beer where the vegetable somehow actually adds to the balance instead of taking away from it. Apparently quite hard to do, so good job on that. :D
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Mise à jour: Je viens de l’essayé encore cette année et, selon moi, c’est beaucoup mieux qu’avant. Je dirai que il y a une présence plus fort d’épices cette année. C’est un couleur orange avec un col moyenne beige. L’arôme d’épices avec un peu de citrouille. Le goût est plutôt est épices que citrouille mais c’est une bière assez bonne même sans considerer que c’est une bière de citrouille. sulawang (1155) - - APR 10, 2012
pours translucent bottle brown, minimal head, ringed retention, minimal lacing, slow as molasses moving CO2 streams. Some malt on the nose, not much else. 7/10-level sweetness med-heavy malts up front, brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin, very creamy silky mouthfeel, finishes just a tad watery and thin. A soft mellow lingering bitter finish. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, decent carry, pretty good drinkability. piscator34 (2515) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottled sample. Dark orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of nutmeg, sourish pumpkin, and pale mats. Surprisingly, pale and toasted malts lead the way in the mouth backed by notes of pumpkin, brown sugar, some woody/spicy heat, and a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied. Disjoint, but more or less ok.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Dark copper, frothy tan head. Spicey, yeasty pumpkin nose. Strong bitter pumpkin and spice taste. Chunky. Medium to full bodied, a stronger offering than the other seasonals. Short bitter finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Botlle, shared with Parksy and Gripp in a pumpkin beer taste-off. Handsome dark copper, medium cream colored head. Sweet malty caramel aroma, some allspice. Nice caramel malt with assertive pumpkin character and a husky nuttiness, balanced (but not overwhelmed) by sweet spices. This was a nice pumpkin beer, second in preference to Rogue’s and much better than Phillip’s. dreamflower (790) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle shared with northropfrye. I can smell a little bit of pumpkin. It’s not strong tasting, but pleasant. northropfrye (3515) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle. Dark reddish brown colour, kind of weak head. Pumpkin spice aroma and flavour. Tastes like a pumpkin pie. Crit (3977) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011
Hazy amber, beige head. Allspice nose. Subdued allspice and cloves in a pumpkin palate, not overly sweet like most.. Light but noticeable hop finish. JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
Pours a nice dark bronze colour with a medium size head with good retention. Aroma is a little light at the beginning but was it mores up more spice come thru mostly cinnamon and caramal malts. Flavour is sort of like a bourbon heavy on the spice with a nice sweetness from the malts and just a hint of pumpkin and squash
