Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rudolphjacksonm on 11-12-2011

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.

poured from bottle into snifter.

pours hazy orange with nice 2 finger thick off-white head and leaves lots of lacing.

the spices and gourdiness seems a little bit muted up front. there are spices on the nose but it's not the typical pumpkin associated spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. I get more of the pepper and clove from the saison base backed by the funky pumpkin sweetness. the taste turns everything around and there is the pumpkin up front and its associated spices. nice balancing act. most pumpkin beers tend to be too much spices almost as if hiding the malt backbone. not here. the 8.5% sneaks up on you after a few.

dryer and more highly carbonated compared to most pumpkin beers but thankfully this isnt like most pumpkin beers. this is a saison! excellent.

this is a somewhat polarizing beer due to the non-standard saison base. I personally am all for it and like the exploration these guys are going for.

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.

Mildly funky aroma with less fink in the still very complex flavor. Surprisingly lively and tingly carbonation. Spicy but not so much as to mask the malts and pumpkin.

Acquired this via trade.....
A - Poured a golden brown, lighter than most pumpkin ales.
S - Very mild pumpkin aroma,
T - This is a lighter beer with a pumpkin flavor. Spices do not dominate.
M - Medium mouth feel
O - Wow I like this beer! I would call this a wonderfully balanced amber pumpkin ale. This may be the 2nd best pumpkin beer I've tasted in 2014.
