Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The 2012 harvest on our Mom & Pop’s farm was fruitful and this brew uses 100 fresh pumpkins and 40 organic squash. We prepared, cooked, and pureed all the gourds with the help of our friends at Carrie Anne’s Modern Diner. A blend of autumn spices adds to the intense pumpkin flavors. Uses locally grown Triticale from MA.

A - Big ruby/amber coloration. Small head. Little lacing.

S - Hugely robust pumpkin aroma, bread, nutmeg, cinnamon.

T - Big pumpkin flavor, red apple, dull dead malt.

M - Fairly thick. Has the thickness of apple cider almost. Almost no carbonation. Not much hoppage here.

D - Very, very boring beer. Wouldn't get this again and wouldn't recommend it.

Bottle from Resdstone.
Pours a crystal clear orange amber color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas mostly of nutmeg and cinnamon with a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is sweet with a bready brown sugary maltiness. Cinnamon and nutmeg provide the only counter to the sweetness and the malt is winning. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spiced mouthfeel. Decent enough pumpkin beer, I couldn't drink much of this, but its better than most.
