I had this beer for the first time roughly a year ago and it was far past its expiration; really didn't like it that much at all. Having it again now though was awesome.

Let me preface this by saying this is my first and only real pumpkin beer. Anyways, surprisingly clear amber colored body with about a finger of head. Retention was minimal as was lacing. On the nose cinnamon and other spices associated with fall come. Not too much pumpkin, sweet malt provides a nice base and is very reminiscent of their "rousse". On the palate spices come through on the forefront with small traces of pumpkin. Bitterness is restrained as is hop character.

Overall I love this style its easily drinkable at 5% abv and is more or less just something fun to drink in the fall. That being said I'm buying more of this and brewing my own pumpkin ale.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on October 5, 2014.

The pour is a reddish orange, which is a bit of a surprise to me. Not a lot of head and it fades away quickly.

The aroma has a pleasant enough nutmeg and pumpkin spice character but there is a kind of grape fruitiness. Not grapefruit - red grapes. Yeast.

The body is better than medium.

The taste is on the sweet side with that same pumpkin spiciness that I would expect. There is a lingering bitterness and a fruity finale. Interesting.
