Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a narrow tulip glass.

Nice orange/amber color but poor head retention. Cooked pumpkin meat, cinnamon, and nutmeg on the nose, with just a little cranberry juice if you look for it.

Full bodied with a big pumpkin presence; not squashy and not pumpkin pie, kind of like cooked, slightly sweetened pumpkin puree. A little bright herbalness from the lemongrass, then the cranberry comes in at the end with a mild tartness. Just enough pie spice, and a light caramelly malt presence.

This is my pick for pumpkin beer of the year so far. Lots of pumpkin favor, well balanced, with an interesting contribution from the cranberry. I like it better than this year's DFH Punkin.

Bottle
A: copper. Thin, fuzzy head.
S: pumpkin pie filling.
T: meh. Bitter, weird-spicy, alcohol, cinnamon and nutmeg.
M: medium-high carbonation. Medium body. Dry.
O: I'm not a huge pumpkin beer fan. Now I remember why. I am rating this 3, but if you are a fan of this style, maybe it is good to you. Not me.
