Pours a kindof nutty brown color with a reasonable head.

Smells like fresh fruity pumpkin...very sweet, maybe a hint of spices or nuts, mostly fresh pumpkin.

Taste has a lot of authentic pumpkin too, but more spices than in the nose, kindof nutty, almost cloyingly sweet, good though.

Mouthfeel is pretty nice, rich but good carb, fair drinkability.

Good pumpkin beer! Pumpkin flavor is very authentic, I like that the spices are toned down, could be less sweet though.

6.9/10

Very limited release and distribution. Packaged only in kegs and 22oz bombers, and poured into my 1 liter Hofbrau stein.

Apperance: Pours a gorgeous ruby color that I've never really seen before. 1 inch foam head dissipates to a thin layer.

Smell: Pumpkin spices (i.e. cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, allspice). A very fruity essence.

Taste: Vanilla. All the spices listed above. Pumpkin flavor is implied in the taste.

Mouthfeel: high end on a low scale of carbonation. Very wet, chewy, and smooth, satisfying finish. Medium-bodied, but full flavored.

Overall: Me gustaaa. But could use a medium-high level of carbonation to match the body of the beer, as it is currently too light in my own opinion.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Thanks to twiggamortis420 for this bottle!

And here I thought my pumpkin beer experiences were done for the year... Oh well, the first of two Texas-based pumpkins I've got pours a clear ruby-brown topped by a finger or so of glowing off-cream foam. The nose comprises candied orange peel, thick caramel, light mint, cinnamon, brown sugar, and light gingerbread. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more orange character than before and a smidgen of cocoa for the sake of it. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly milky feel. Overall, a nice pumpkin beer, though I'm not sure the Belgian yeast really does much for it (and doesn't detract from it, either.). Not bad.

On tap.

A great pumpkin beer. Not overpowering in the spice department. Stands up to DFH's and Saint Arnold's pumpkin beers, though not as good in my opinion. I liked it a bit more than Sam Adams Fat Jack.

I look forward to having this every fall season in the Houston area. Great job again Karbach.
