This pumpkin beer is unlike any other pumpkin beer I’ve had. Most pumpkin beers remind me of a weiss. This one is more like a sweet brown, with a strong honey flavor and sweet pumkin aroma. I look forward to this every year, and they never seem to make enought of it.
Tap at brewery. Golden with decent head. I smell vanilla and light spice. Flavor follows, but a bit harsh like vanilla extract. BrewMstr (194) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Draft at milwaukee brewery. Definitively not a pumpkin-pie-in-a-glass version, aroma and taste of some spices, mostly cinnamon, though not sweet. The malt and pumpkin are well balanced with the wheat base coming through at the end with a banana finish. Worth trying! 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2015
I’m not a big fan of Pumpkin ales, this one was better than most. Enjoyed it because the pie spice was not over the top. RichardZ (28) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2013
On tap at Water Street Brewery. Clean sweet finish, not spicy like many other pumpkin beers. Mild carbonation, small foamy head, very drinkable.

On tap at Water Street Brewery. Clear amber with a thin off-white head and no lace. Aroma is faint and of malt, light spice and mild pumpkin. Taste of malt, faint pumpkins, mild spice with a pumpkin aftertaste. Smooth but a touch bland. cbfobes (2891) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2010
On tap at brew pub, pours a clear light amber with a light white head, there is a slight pumpkin and vanilla aroma, the taste is overall more vanilla rather pumpkin and spices, not very balanced in the flavor, there are WAY better pumpkins out there than this one. Nice try. JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Pint at the brewpub on 10/15/10 and again on 10/17/10. Clear orange, almost pink pour with a light pink head. Aroma is cinnamon, ginger, sweet malt and something that I can only describe as vanilla sugar. Cinnamon flavor with more vanilla sugar and a crisp (although somewhat thin finish). Not what I was expecting and certainly not like any beer I’ve ever had, but I really like what the vanilla flavor adds. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Thanks to JaBier for sharing a growler at the Horror Movie Marathon on 10/23/10. Pours a clear orange color with a medium thin white head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Vanilla and spices in the nose. Medium body with flavors of malt, ginger and vanilla extract. The finish is sweetly spiced with a cinnamon/vanilla aftertaste. Above average overall. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Dark red-brown, off white cover. Aroma is sweet malty, heavy sugar, caramel, light spicing. Taste is more caramel, malts, sweet, very little if any detectable pumpkin pie spicing.
