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.
