12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear dark orange with a fizzy one finger head. Just ok head retention but absolutely no lacing to speak of.
Aroma of pumpkin pie spice along with overripe fruit. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. It is not especially strong, however.
Flavor is full of nutmeg and cinnamon and has an almost artificial quality about it that I am not a fan of. A decent amount of sweetness pervades with just the slightest hint of bitterness. Carbonation is way high and a little bit distracting.
Overall, this beer has an artificial feel surrounding it from the aroma, to the flavor, to the mouthfeel. One thing going for it is that it is quite refreshing when ice cold but that is about the only positive thing I can say. Not a beer I plan on having again.
