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.

Received in a trade and poured in to my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear roasted pumpkin flesh orange hue with a one finger off white head that slowly faded to leave a thin, thin blanket. No real lacing to speak of but nice retention.

S - Mmmm...pumpkin. This is quite nice. Rich, roasted pumpkin on the aroma with some light brown sugar/molasses sweetness. Faint spice notes. Deep, deep inhales bring out some faint saison/farmhouse esters. No real funk, the pumpkin dominates that.

T - Taste is delicious, albeit slightly intermingled. Throughout, mixing with styles, is a booze flavour. There are some faint belgian/saison esters almost banana-y. Nice roasted pumpkin notes throughout the beer but falls a little flat when compared to the nose.

M - Mouthfeel is excellent really. Basically like all of these Hardwood brews. Almost sharply carbonated, light, drinkable. Sessionable at 8.5%.

O - Overall, another delicious brew from Hardwood. Aroma and mouthfeel are top notch. Glad I have another bottle of this. While not my favourite Hardywood it certainly was worth the trade.

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.

A: pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of off-white head that recedes into a thin ring with no lacing.

S: typical pumpkin spices up front followed by sweet vanilla and yam aromas. There are also some brown sugar aromas in there.

T: again the typical spices, but not overwhelming. Yam, vanilla, brown sugar, and biscuity flavors bring p the finish with a light alcohol burn.

M: medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is fairly creamy and smooth.

O: a good pumpkin ale that doesn't overwhelm with spices. I wish there was a bit less alcohol burn and a creamier body.
