Had this at the brewery on 2014-08-23

Good pumpkin aroma and taste but not over the top. Great balance. Not sweet. Fairly bitter finish.

Note: Growler purchased at Bestway in Greensboro, NC

A: Pours a crystal clear medium garnet reddish amber in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass slowly and some deep crimson red highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy beige head that reduces to a couple of small patches of thick film and a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon in descending order of strength) as well as some light to moderate aromas of slightly sweet roasted pumpkin.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of sweetness from the grainy malt and roasted pumpkin flavors along with a moderate amount of pumpkin pie spice flavors - primarily nutmeg with lighter notes of clove and cinnamon. Minimal amounts of bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: Not nearly as sweet as I expected based on the aroma, which is a good thing - one of the better balanced pumpkin beers I have had in recent years with a great blend between the pumpkin sweetness and the spices. Definitely one I would grab again.

Had on tap a few days back at Potent Potables.Poured into a standard pint glass a deep burnt orange with nicely formed one finger off white head,I liked the deep color and nice head to this beer.Aromas of pumpkin pie spice,alot of nutmeg and clove with underlying cinnamon,smelled sweet but it wasn't overly sweet tasting.Spiced on the palate with a fair amount of nutmeg and clove,a lightly drying finish keeps the sweetness in check...just enough.You have to like nutmeg to really like this beer and I do somewhat so I enjoyed it.One of the better new pumpkin beers I have tried this season.

I generally tend to detest novelty beers, especially pumpkin beers, as I'm not a fan of the flavor of pumpkin, nor the spices used. However, due to my undying support of this brewery, I gave this beer a shot. It was, by far, the most balanced pumpkin beer I've had, and the best representation of the style I believe I've tried.

I wouldn't necessarily sit down and order multiple glasses, but for the style, this was outstanding.

on draft at beer study in chapel hill. dfh tulip shaped pint glass.

pours a dark orange with a nice inch thick head. very pumpkiny aroma strong on nutmeg and cinnamon. taste is more of the same but with a good amount of clove as well. very spice heavy. fuller side of medium bodied.

overall for a pumpkin beer its in the upper echelon. recommended if youre looking for this style.
