Presentation: Very simple yet cool looking label in the New Belgium traditional style with a nice looking color scheme and nice graphics. Label gives brewery info, ABV info, serving temperature info, a small description of the beer, web info, and states “Fall Seasonal”, “New Belgium Brewing is wind powered and Employee owned”. Awesome embossed bottle!
Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 16oz imperial pint led to a 3 finger golden white head of medium density atop a slightly hazy bright amber orange colored beer. Excellent retention at 4min 35sec before fading to a thick coating and right with excellent lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon are all very prevalent with a very slight bready malt aroma and a very slight actual real pumpkin smell. Very little if any cranberry could be detected. Smell is very good.
Flavor/Taste: Taste is of slightly tart cranberry on the front end along with cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg also coming through. Midpoint is dominated by pumpkin spice and bready malts that finishes with a tart pumpkin spice aftertaste.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the light side of medium bodied with a crisp refreshing mouthfeel that finishes dry. Very Very drinkable and tasty.
Overall/Comments: This was a very good beer that was very refreshing and drinkable however had nothing that really made it stand out except for maybe the tartness; While not my favorite pumpkin beer this is still a very good and respectable offering. Classified as a Pumpkin Ale @ 6% ABV. Consumed 9/20/2013.
