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.

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.

A - Pours a hazy dark orange color with nice head retention and a low amount of tiny cascading bubbles.

S - Barnyard funk, pumpkins, cinnamon, & nutmeg.

T - Pumpkins, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and a lot of Belgian style funk. The ABV is completely hidden in this beer.

M - Medium body.

O - The most unique Farmhouse Ale I've ever tried, definitely an adventurous beer.

orange-wheat in color. this pours easy with not much head. somewhat translucent, no lacing. big sugary pumpkin dominates the nose, with noticeable Belgian yeast influence and wheat, spices such as allspice and nutmeg. taste is pumpkin up front, classic saison flavor with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. allspice is evident in the finish. medium body makes this more refreshing than i expected and very easy drinking for such a high ABV. a very creative take on the seasonal pumpkin ale, solid effort.

I don't like Pumpkin spice. I do like this Pumpkin Saison. A lot. I wouldn't even try it at first as I've been pummeled with awful seasonal autumn beers for so many years. Silly me. The aroma is subtle and pleasant, the taste is smooth and crisp. Very nicely done.
