4.11/5  rDev +22.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. Bottle says best before 16th of Feb, 14.

Appearance: Pours a deep caramel amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of off white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: An earthy pumpkin aroma with hints of spices along with berries and citrus. Upfront earthy hints of pumpkin. Fall spice hints including cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice. Juicy hints of the cranberries and lemon come through. Bready malt with hints of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, grains, and yeast. Subtle earthy hop hints. A pretty solid and interesting aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a solid earthy taste of pumpkins along with notes of fall spices and added fruits. Upfront taste of pumpkins. Mix of spices including notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and allspice. Fruity taste of cranberries along with some lemongrass. Pale malts with notes of sweet caramel, toffee, grains, biscuit, and yeast. Earthy hop notes linger in the background. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, spicy, and fairly drying and smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid twist on a pumpkin ale. The added fruits mix well with the pumpkin and spices.

Serving type: bottle
