look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bomber into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a light orange color with a 2 finger head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing left behind.

S: Smell is of pumpkin and nutmeg. A touch of cinnamon and clove. Something sweet is also
there but I can't quite put my finger on it.

T: Taste is mainly of nutmeg with some maltiness. Pumpkin is there, but not as detectable as it
is on the nose. Clove is also coming through. Some sweetness on the finish.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth with a medium body. Carbonation is medium-high. For it being 9% abv I
must say the alcohol is masked very well and is only really perceived once the beer becomes warm.

O: Overall I felt this beer had a bit more spice then pumpkin flavors. It wasn't one of the best pumpkin ales, but it was good. The alcohol was masked insanely well for 9% abv. I would pick this up again.

The pour: clear, no head retention if there is very little
The presentation: copper clear highly filtered aromas on the nose some pumpkin, mostly natural added flavouring for that pumpkin punch

The mouth feel is quite good. I'm tasting pumpkin. But there is something else. There is a somewhat "metal" aftertaste

Somewhat boozy and warm

The low score is for the metal aftertaste


Overall. Not a bad pumpkin ale . In my opinion leave out the natural flavour and put more pumpkin in.

Was the brewed in a copper pot? I'm thinking that is the metal taste I'm tasting.

It may be just me.
