Pours dark ruby. Smells amazing. Huge aroma of cinnamon, clove, even pumpkin. Taste follows. This a nice, spicy pumpkin pie in a glass. Finishes smooth, a little warming booze. This is up there with some of the best pumpkin beers I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours copper with brown hue. Pumpkin and spices (cloves, cinnamon) in the nose. Pumpkin bread flavor. I'm not a fan of pumpkin ales, but this is one of the better pumpkin ales I've tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle:   Orangish caramel, a bit dirty, thin whispy head, little lacing.   Almost appears still.   Bit of a vinous or white wine aroma right up front.   Muted spices, white grapes, a bit tart, with some slight mealiness on the backside.   Guessing this one didnt age too well.   Still entertaining tho.   Average body and mouthfeel, albeit lacks carbonation.   Coulda guess that by the lack of head.   Finishes tangy and tart.   Shows a bit of spices, but its soft compared to the tartness.   Reminds me of the Cascade example a bit, but with no carbonation and lacks the alcohol punch.   Tiz OK, but guessing its over the hill by now.   Thanks Bob!

Heavy pumpkin spice scent. Deep orange color. Spice of cinnamon and nutmeg is light but good. You can actually taste a bit of the gourd true pumpkin flavor, as if cooked. Easy mouth feel. Tap

On tap at Vintage. Pours a dark orange brown with a thin, barely perceptible white head. Aroma of toasted pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, peppery spices. Flavor of pumpkin, bready and sweet malt, light spices. Nice aroma, but a little heavy and sweet in the palate. 7/4/6/3/12 (3.2/5)

Very good pumpkin ale. Spicy aroma, with a hint of pumpkin. Orange-amber color, slightly hazy. Spritzy carbonation. Pumpkin and spice is also prominent in the flavor. A fun and tasty beer.

Hazy brown/red. Pretty big spice - nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper along with pumpkin and fruity yeast esters. Spice dominates taste buds at first, but evens out with drinking. Cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, pepper, moderate sweet pumpkin pie filling, toasted malt, and hint of that Belgian yeast. Medium on the palate and maybe just a tad thin on the flavor profile, but all-in-all, a very good pumpkin beer.

At the brewery before the penn state Wisconsin game. Go Penn State. Pours a murky unseeable golden brown with a creamy off white head that leaves a ring. Smell is of cinnomin and clove and light pumpkin. Taste is super smooth and spicier nice with a pumpkin pie after taste. Nicely done I like the smoothness of this pumkin ale not watery at all or thin.

On tap at brewpub
The base beer was much better than its chocolate counterpart. Almost like a liquid pie it was ideal for a cool fall evening. I always enjoy when these seasonals are released because of that very reason. If you miss it Im sure it will come back for 2012.

Aroma / Appearance - Ruby red with a soft puffy head an spindly legs the base is warm and inviting. Nutmeg, whipped cream, and squash are the main players in a strongly spiced experience.

Flavor / Palate - Whipped cream melted onto a fresh pumpkin pie calms the palate. Refreshing and fluid the mouthfeel avoids being cloying. The only real complaint I can come up with is that for 7% it does feel a little weak. However given that I could drink this all night that might be a good thing.

10/22/11. On tap at the brewpub. Hazy reddish pour with a small khaki head that fades. Nice spice profile with vanilla on the aroma as well. Sweet, gourdy flavor that thankfully doesnt overwhelm on spices. Nice for a pumpkin beer actually!
