4/5 rDev +20.8%
12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new beer to me from Greenbush Brewing Co., expectations are fairly high since I've enjoyed what I've tried from them so far. Nice bottle art, and my bottle claims a 7.30% abv.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.
A - Pours two fingers of creamy tan head that leaves some nice scattered lacing. Body is a thick, creamy, dark caramel orange with some dark sediment in the glass. Looks pretty nice for the style.
S - Smell is different than most other pumpkin beers I've come across. Fresh earthy pumpkin / gourds, buttered popcorn, brisk cola, and some dusty yeast funk. Slightly strange smelling for a pumpkin beer, but I'm liking it.
T - Taste follows the nose - earthy pumpkin / gourd, buttered popcorn, mild alcohol heat, some indistinct herbal qualities, and some cream.
M - Feel is full, smooth, and creamy, with some herbal bitterness lingering on the palate. More full-bodied than your average pumpkin ale, which makes for a nice sipper. Good carbonation.
Overall, a solid pumpkin ale from Greenbush. Definitely one of the more unique and memorable takes on the style that I've tried this year. Slightly higher than normal abv, and a fuller thicker body makes this one a nice sipper. Recommended.

Enjoyed at the brewery on 10/9
Copper color; great frothy head; slightly sweet on the nose; consistent lacing down the glass; well-balanced up front; malt-forward; good, soft and subtle pumpkin flavor; sessionable fall beer; a little 'bitey' on the back end.
