A - Poured aggressively into a shock top weizen glass. Huge foamy white head that leaves crazy lacing on the glass, especially for a wheat beer! Dark rich orange with the typical wheat beer opacity to it.
S - Some shredded wheat simplicty up front, maybe a little lemon, picking up on a pleasant pumpkin musk, with a little bit of allspice. Very refreshing scent.
T - Huge citrus notes up front, big showing from orange and lemon. Some muted wheat heaviness, a little saltine and corn flake crisp and on the way out, there's the pumpkin and some cinnamon sweetness. It's not a lot,just kind of an afterthought. Refreshing, yes. Pumpkiny, not really, but you can taste it, you just need to dig for it.
M - Very light and watery, still lots of character. Surprising light for a wheat beer.
O - Not a big fan of wheat beer, figured I'd pick it up since I do love pumpkin beers. Very nice late summer/early fall beer, a little heaviness to it, not too much pumpkin, muted fall flavors. If this had been marketed as a fall seasonal and not a pumpkin beer specifically, I never would have marked it as one, a very pleasant beer, but definitely not the kind of pumpkin beer I'm used to.

Sampling right now after bowling on 3/4/14. I have had this one a few times in the past but has been about 2 years ago and bought last autumn and finally made it's way from the back of the beer cooler to the front. LOL! Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a pilsner flute glass.
Pours a orange-amber in color with a thin white head that lasts the whole drink. Some spotty lacing is seen. Small steaming bubbles rising up from the bottom of the glass the whole time. but perfect carbonation actually. The aroma is of very light pumpkin and spices (mostly cloves). The taste is about the same with more spices of cloves & nutmeg coming out then the light pumpkin and wheat flavor. No harsh or bitter aftertaste. Overall, it wasn't bad.
