COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices(Cinnamon,Nutmeg,Cardamom,Cloves). This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is heartier, spicier, and more caramelly and pumpkiny than its faint brethren! Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. If you don't agree this is the mother of all pumpkin ales, then you just don't like mothers!

Bottle: Pours a light mahogany color with a tan head. Flavor is of malts, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some pumpkin. The alcohol is present in this beer. This is the best pumpkin beer I have and maybe the best spiced beer.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2009 for a pumpkin beer....this was great. Spicy, hearty pumpkin flavor with a nice long finish. Dare I say this is better that ’Punkin ale’ from Dogfish Head....But it might be.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2007 22oz bottle. Pours clear orange with a medium head. Fair lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, pumpkin, tangy cinnamon and other pie spices. Taste pumpkin, malt sweetness, pie-spices and cardamom. Finishes sweet with a malt-vanilla and cardamom taste. Spiciness covers the alcohol cleanly. I finally tried a lot of the pumpkin beers this year, and I’m going to rate all four of my favorites now from my cellar. Weyerbacher’s is number 1.

This beer was awesome. I’ve had several pumpkin ales and I’m usually not a fan. This was a very smooth drinking and pleasing ale to go along with Thanksgiving dinner. Hints of nutmeg and masked the alcohol very well. I’d suggest this to anyone even if they did not usually like pumpkin ales

I love pumpkin beers, and this one is the best I have ever had. The beer was nice and heavy, but still very drinkable. It smelled just like a pumpkin pie with lots of cinnamon, cloves, vanilla. It tasted like a pie too and there were even subtle hints of nutmeg. The alcohol was barely present and the mouth feel was very smooth. This was one great beer. I can’t wait until next fall to get another one.

22 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Pours a clear amber color with an average size off white head. Light lacing. Has a spicey (nutmeg & clove) aroma. Flavor is mainly nutmeg with some caramel malt sweetness. Light to medium body. Thin palate. Pumpkin beers are not my favorite style, but it’s worth a try. Thanks Jason

Bomber to share with the family at Thanksgivingl. Pours a clear moderate amber with nutty brown hints and a thick lasting off white head. Aroma is nutmeg and cinnamon- pumpkin pie spices- thcik malt etc. Flavor is oily with rela pumpkin flavor, more spice, whoel clove and some nutmmeg- and lots of caramel sweetness. Fully and nice mouthfeel. After tasting a bunhc of different pumpkin beers, this one is the clear winner- nothing really stands a chance against this beer.
