Served in a Harviestoun Old Engine Oil tulip/snifter at Local Option.

Got some swordfish tacos, so why not go for a new "pumpkin" beer, eh? it pours a hazy copper-straw topped by a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises powdered sugar, perfume, sweet flowers, toasted biscuit, very light cocoa, and a kiss of cinnamon. The taste holds notes of toasted gourd, light toffee, brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, and black pepper. Things are like a bland, overly-spicy pumpkin pie that was left in the oven too long. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda slick feel. Overall, an underwhelming beer, one that seems to aspire to be a better pumpkin-style beer, but one that only succeeds at mediocrity.

This is the October 2013 batch, so it's almost a year old. This is just really dry. I do not get any sweet sensation at all. Just a ghost of something fruity and the dry spicy edge.

Pours with a lovely, thick mashed potatoes head, off white in color. The brew is a coppery red-brown in the De Proef narrow tulip. A little something woody but I don't know what they mean on the label by "maple roasted." Some spice, like cinnamon and a touch of cloves, but mostly generic toasted bitterish spice. Huge suds that never give up. Your mustache will be covered with the stuff.

An interesting peculiar concoction. I think the Missouri squash farmers got the best deal out of this. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.

Pours a clear caramel color with a small white head. Smells pretty good, quite a bit of squashy goodness here along with a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Caramel malt lends some support, though it doesn't smell too heavy. Doesn't taste as good as it smells, however. Spices contribute some astringency, and overwhelm the malt a bit. I don't get much maple; squash is dialed down compared to the nose. Body is medium-light, a touch thin. Finishes with spices, faint maple sweetness, butterscotch. A decent, easy to drink autumn beer, but the recipe could use some tweaking.

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip.

Pours a clear chestnut-tinted mahogany, nice color, with a moderate frothy light tan head. Fair lacing.

Nose is intriguing, with a big and clear note of maple-roasted squash. Yes, the label states that this beer was made with maple-roasted squash, but this is not just the power of suggestion; the beer smells like maple-roasted squash. Sweet and a bit earthy, and just amazingly 'squashy.' A bit of cinnamon and baking spice in the background. The brown ale base is hard to pick up.

Kind of falls apart on the palate. Clear, straightforward note of cinnamon up front, with a prickly mouthfeel to match. Notes of tannic wood, skin-on walnuts, a bit of toffee, semi-dry leaves, but all sort of discombobulated and confused. Doesn't seem to follow any kind of normal progression. Finishes dry and prickly.

Light-medium in body, carbonation making it feel lighter than it probably actually is. Mostly soft but with a firm edge. The base beer shows through more as it warms, rounding things out a fair bit and helping integrate the other flavors. A great beer concept that doesn't hold up as well as it ought; the nose and palate are too far apart, and seem like two different beers.

750mL bottle split into snifters, thanks Justin & Amanda for the assist. Review from written notes.

It pours a murky, tawny reddish amber color, fairly good clarity with some minor hazing in the light. Thin layer of soft creamy foam on top, as it settled the texture reminded me of silkworm webs. It had strong, lasting head retention and left behind minimal lacing.

Earthy aromas of candied ginger, nutmeg, autumnal spices, dry and spice forward, not at all sweet.

A definite "autumn season" impression to this beer, reminds one of crunchy fall leaves, pumpkin pie, and the smell of distant campfires. Flavors of dry spices, nutmeg and bitter bay leaf. Earthy squash/pumpkin flavor in the background, but its overshadowed by the spices a bit. Medium bodied with an even level of carbonation. An interesting spice-forward fall seasonal that has distinctive "autumn" qualities. It was fun to try and probably best shared, but not a repeat buy for me.

3.58/5  rDev -6.3%

Bottled 10/13

Pours an effervescent ruby color & cream colored head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Maple syrup, caramel, & brown sugar & pumpkin notes

T: Follows the nose, plus a little cinnamon & dryness up front. More cinnamon as this warms & powdery dryness, plus squashyness, a bit of maple & brown sugar & bit of boozeyness. Finishes dry & squashy with brown sugar & a bit of maple syrup

MF: Medium bodied, slightly over carbonated

Holding well for the age, but not really thrilling me, worth a go, but not sure I would buy it fresher. Usually the aspects of what is basically slightly a pumped up pumpkin ale, are more off-putting when fresh

On tap at 44 Stone in Columbia, MO.

A - Poured a clear, copper color with ruby highlights. It had a one-finger, off-white head of bubbly foam that left thin sheets of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of maple, squash, cinnamon and caramel.

T - It tasted fairly spicy with a bit too much cinnamon. Squash flavor is present with sweet caramel and toffee flavors.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a good beer. Very interesting flavors with the maple and squash.
