3.96/5 rDev -5.5%
12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
Orange-amber with a short off-white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with light carbonation.
Pumpkin, pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.
Pumpkin meat, toasted pie crust and hints of caramel. Has a bouquet of pumpkin spices comprised of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and clove. Touches of brown sugar and pumpkin rind.
Medium bodied, smooth, sticky and dry.
Still a damn good Pumpkin Ale.
A: Pours a dark amber hue with almost entirely no head. A nice film clings to the side of the glass with sparse lacing. Low carbonation.
N: This is a beautiful, mouthwatering nose. Smells very close to liquid pumpkin pie. Good amount of pumpkin, caramel malts, cinnamon and perhaps hints of nutmeg and clove.
T: Pure caramel malts and pumpkin meat upfront followed by lightly toasted pie crust, candy sugar, cinnamon and clove spices. Finishes with lingering bread, allspice, pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon.
M: Medium-full bodied, smooth and sticky.
O: This is one malted beast of a Pumpkin Ale. I really respect Williamsburg AleWerks approach. This is focused primarily on the pumpkin and malts with spices only coming secondary. A rather hefty brew at 8% abv that would be best enjoyed on cold fall evenings.

4.36/5 rDev +4.1%
12 ounce bottle poured into a Harpoon IPA strange
A: Dark amber, with a 1 finger head that goes away pretty quickly, small little bubbles
S: Sweet pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, and slight biscuit
T: Comes across like the smell, lots of sweetness from the pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
M: This is a full bodied beer. The sweet taste does not make it cloyingly of the top and some good balance from the malt at the end.
This is what a pumpkin beer should taste like. It hits all the right notes and tastes like pumpkin pie without over doing it.
