UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Great Pumppkin ale (withouut the ’Will Stevens’ on label). The aroma was deep with spice and a hint of pumpkin. The taste bordered on too much spice, but was just short of overboard. I liked the sensation on the palate. Sensed ginger and clove. Overall, A seasonal winner. Great for the cool fall evening. sailracer (486) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Tap. Pours a rusty orange with a dense foam head. They didn’t go overboard with the pumpkin flavor or sweetness which makes this a very pleasant, drinkable beer. One of my favorite pumpkin beers so far. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Honestly, one of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had. The spices seemed to be just right; not too faint, not too strong. Pleasing brew. MtnMan3155 (13) - - OCT 15, 2014
Favorite of the night's fall seasonal tastings. Nice aroma, good taste. Get it again!

While some folks shy away from the Pumpkin Ales, I consider myself a fan and look forward to their release each year, especially new ones! Pours a translucent orange amber with golden notes and a smaller bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of vanilla, nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, pretty much pumpkin pie with a touch of some toasted malt, nuts and honey. Flavor is much like the aroma in that it is pumpkin pie in a glass along with some toasted/nutty maltiness and a touch of hop bitterness. Bring on the fall and all things pumpkin, nice job Wolavers!

2008 bottle. Sent a picture to be uploaded. Solid pumpkin beer. Pours with a fluffy, tight, off-white head that stays the entire time and leaves good lacing. Body is a chill hazed orange hue. Aroma is beautiful with pumpkin and so many amazing spices... cinnamon, brown sugar, clove...pumpkin pie, really good pumpkin pie. Taste is strongly of the spices and not as sweet as I was hoping. Still good for when the weather cools. Dryish mouthfeel and lively bubbles. rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon bread aroma. Clear orange color with some white foam. Spicy from the beginning. Mainly nutmeg fading slowly in the finish. Cinnamon develops in the end. High amount of carbonation and very drinkable. The six pack however was rubbish leaving me with only a five pack. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a deep orange, with a white head. Aroma is spices, pumpkin, and caramel. Flavor is much the same, but also with a slight tangy/sour taste. Medium body. dlovell2 (2143) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Pours orange with white head. Cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Slight pumpkin taste with cinnamon and nutmeg. Good pumpkin ale, not overpowering with spices. Nejhleader (1561) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2013
I enjoyed this. Has a good spicey kinda gingerbread aroma, some nutmeg. Has a mild pumpkin gingerbread taste, smooth body. Points for being organic.
