A - Pours a honey color with a slight copper haze. One finger white head with average retention
S - I love the smell of this beer. Almost just like a pumpkin pie with a very noticable vanilla in the background
T - Very similar to the aroma. Taste just like a pumpkin pie. Great use of pumpkin and other spices in this beer. Again, it has the perfect use of vanilla in the back as well
M - Awesome mouthfeel on this beer.It really seems to fit the taste if that makes sense. Almost like you have a creamy piece of pumpkin pie in your mouth
O - A wonderful pumpkin beer. One of my favorite pumpkin beers of all time. Its what I think of when I think of a pumpkin beer

Pours a cloudy orange-amber color. Maybe even a semi-dark amber. The head is fizzling out to a translucent layer of single bubbles. Not terribly pretty to look at.
Refreshing, to not get a cornucopia of spices in the nose, and all at once. Some sweet vegetable note of pumpkin or butternut squash. There's a spill of caramel, so it has sweetness, with a note of candi sugar. Has a nice malt representation, but pretty much no hops. Maybe a little stanky with must. Slightly oxidized, too, maybe? Picking up papery notes on-top of a mucky thick beery malt note.
Pumpkin flesh, sweet unbiting ginger, marzipan, fake caramel syrup, and cream soda. Light vanilla, more malt sweetness with a creamy note that hints at orange-y citrus, but barely. Not really picking up that candi sugar note, but something has sweetness-retention. Lingering notes of coriander and hazelnut. Light soapiness. Interesting take on a pumpkin.
Drinks with a lighter bill of carbonation that makes the body sticky wet and over-medium in its pace. The tongue is glazing before I can swish saliva on it. Not sticky, per se, but drinks like a very light syrup.
Needless to say, this was a stab in the dark that ended no one's life. In other words, you can do better with most 'spice bombs' out there. Interesting, sure. But, not great in how it was unique.

3.41/5 rDev -9.1%
A: copper honey body, trace head, little lacing
S: light pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, sweet malt
T: same as nose, easy going flavors, mild dry grassy
M: med/light body, crisp/bubbly
O: Not bad, could have a few of these, more on the
lighter side for this style. Proud to support another
IL brewery and have enjoyed their offerings in the
past. Either could be heavier in body or bump
up the flavor profile.
PRETTY GOOD; NOT MUST HAVE!
