Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jbertsch on 10-15-2012

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.

Appears dark amber in color. One finger of white head.

Smells great. Raw earthy pumpkin is most prominent. A little added spice is noticeable.

Flavor starts off real nice. Great notes of pumpkin flesh and squash. You can tell it's not just pumpkin carrying this beer. Added spices take a back seat on the flavor profile and let the pumpkin/squash own it...which is fine by me. Flavor drops off fairly quick though and finishes short.

Mouthfeel has decent body.

Overall this has authentic characteristics of real pumpkin and squash and is quite enjoyable. While the flavor is a tad short and thin, it's also quenching and goes down very easy. Worth checking out if you're into pumpkin beers. (697 characters)
