Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Bottle > Alpine Spring bow-tie glass

A - Semi-hazy amber in color with a finger of white soapy head, no lacing.
S - Aroma is pretty nice, lager yeast, warm inviting pumpkin smell, some very light pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, vanilla. A little earthy tones.
T - Taste is very good, creamy smooth pumpkin flavor, light on the spice, which i really enjoy, just a touch of the cinnamon and vanilla, has a more meaty pumpkin flavor than sweet.
M - Very smooth, creamy, good feel.
O - Very good pumpkin seasonal beer, does well with a lager base.

October 2013.
Clear reddish copper - nice colour - with a quickly dissipating beige cap that hung around the rim of the glass throughout. Pumpkin spice in the aroma, but more subtle than in most pumpkin beers. There was still room for the vegetal character of the gourd to be noticed in among the cinnamon and nutmeg. Light flavour, pumpkin/herbal up front, changing to spices towards the end, and finishing with moderate, lingering bitterness. Malt wasn't a prominent player, but there was a grain/malt backbone that held the beer together. A bit slick or soapy in texture, probably from the spices, medium/light bodied. Overall, one of the better pumpkin beers I've had recently.
