Saison / Farmhouse Ale |  8.50% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed in the style of the farmhouse ales of Belgium's southern countryside, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin utilizes a blend of rye, wheat and barley in the grain bill, earthy flavoring hops and a classic saison yeast. Ripe, flame roasted Virginia sugar pumpkins and brown sugar provide a hearty backbone to this 8.5% ABV beer. Freshly ground Ceylon cinnamon, whole Grenada nutmeg, whole Madagascar clove and whole allspice harmonize with pounds of freshly sliced organic ginger root.

A beautiful hue of autumn russet, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin displays a voluminous head, with a bouquet of aromatic fresh spice. Medium to full in body, this ale offers a balanced flavor of caramelized pumpkin and pie spices, with a lingering finish laced with a hint of fresh ginger.

Great balance between real pumpkin flavor and Belgian yeast character. The spice notes of nutmeg and cinnamon blend perfectly with the spicy Belgian yeast notes. Overall very drinkable and delicious, this is definitely one pumpkin ale that I would buy a whole six pack of.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Hardywood's Farmhouse Pumpkin pours out of a 750ml bottle into my Hardywood snifter hazy and orange in color. About a finger or two of white head builds up, but recedes to nothing within the first few sips. Bubbles slowly meander through the liquid, but the beer otherwise appears to be very still. 3.5

S: The aroma is more spicy than pumpkin-y. Nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon all come in to play, nicely balancing out the pumpkins. While the fruit itself doesn't take over, it, combined with the brown sugar this was brewed with, make for a very sweet aroma. 3.5

T: The taste is more of the same from the aroma, very spicy. Definitely more spice comes out on the taste than in the aroma, as I find it to be slightly unbalanced. The pumpkin and other sweetness is there, but just isn't strong enough to play with the spices. The saison yeast imparts a pleasant funkiness that I wasn't expecting. I find the aftertaste of nutmeg, with a slight hint of booze, to be off-putting. 2.5

MF: This beer needs more carbonation. I figured that would be the case when I noted the stillness in the appearance of the beer and when the cork hardly popped at all, but it's still a disappointment. Some bubbles would have really brightened this beer right up. 2.5

Value: Hardywood continues to show its worth with relatively cheap 750ml bottles, easy releases, and still some local distribution. My only wish was that they sent more bottles up north to Arlington! 4

O: This is a beer that's better than the sum of its parts. While it doesn't stand out in any one category, it's quite enjoyable. It isn't in-you-face pumpkin, but it will satisfy your cravings for some. 3.5
