Poured from a bomber. Clear orange/brown with a sticky head that laces the whole glass. Nice aromas of toasted malt, graham cracker, and pumpkin pie spice. Little evidence of the 9% ABV. Flavors reveal hints of booze with canned pumpkin pie, balanced pie spices, roasty malts, and a little late hop bitterness in the slightly sweet finish. Full body with sticky texture.

As orange a color as I've seen in a beer, this pours with quickly faded head. Immediate traditional pumpkin spices on the nose - pretty close to the pie I love! Flavor/mouth-fee is quite a ride... initial pumpkin quickly turns to burst of yeasty, slightly sour alcoholic funk, which in turn, quickly dissolves to a clean finish and lasting mellow aftertaste.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, clear, orange/amber color with an eighth of a finger of white head that immediately dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass, but otherwise left no head whatsoever.

Aroma: Lots of pumpkin and Belgian yeast, as well as some spices of nutmeg, brown sugar and cinnamon. Not much in the way of hops or malt. The aroma reminds me more of a Saison or a Triple.

Taste: Pumpkin flavors forward, with just a hint of sourness, followed by some good spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar. While there are practically no hops to speak of in the flavor, the beer finishes with some good Belgian yeast notes of clove, a little banana, and a faint hint of citrus, to round everything out.

Mouthfeel: This is one part of the beer that’s a little disappointing. The beer is a little thin, slightly watery, and there’s practically no carbonation to speak of. With an ABV of 9.0%, there is quite a bit of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a good pumpkin beer, and I’ll probably get it again next Autumn, but it’s not spectacular. If it had a little more body in the mouthfeel, the beer would be much better, bordering special, but alas, it doesn’t. Still worth a try if you’ve never had it, and maybe a re-visit if you have.

Pretty solid brew. I wish it had more pumpkin flavor to it. Extremely smooth and drinkable for 9%.
