Not bad. Just needs some more pumpkin and spices. Of course, I got the last one before the tap blew do it may have some effect.

Interesting brew that I found as a single at a 7-11 so had to give a try as they took a style, the dunkle, which is a hefe mixed with more malts, and added "pumpkin" malts. Poured a light auburn tinted brown with two finger head and the cinnamon and nutmeg spices hit real good but you can still pick out clove, coriander, citric, yeast. Unfortunately, the taste doesn't follow through as good as the nose. The yeast strains make the beer like a typical hefe/dunkle, but the beer is a little watery and quite frankly the breadiness and sweetness of the beer, especially the pumpkin aspects (brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon), are tasted at best at a minor level. The spices and citric notes of the beer seem to overpower and it comes across at times like a sweet and then sour beer. Not bad, worth a shot if your game, but just didn't have the greatest execution.
