Raisin brown in color and murky in appearance. Poured with a short light beige foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Sweet pumpkin pie, nutmeg, spice and raisin aromas. Medium bodied with light carbonation that contributes to the creamy smoot feel. Sweet pumpkin, dark sugar and malty flavor throughout. Spicy coriander and nutmeg uo front transition seamlessly to spicy ho bitterness toward the end. Finishes with a spicy, slightly boozy aftertaste. This is an amazing Big pumpkin ale stlyle. A fabulous balance of sweet and spicy with malt and hop character presence as well.

The picture on the label says it all. This is the weizenbocks of pumpkin ales. Intense flavor of caramel, vanilla, pumpkin, spice and and a lingering banana finish, When I opened the bottle the room smelled like banana cream pie. The actual aroma on closer inspection is sweet pumpkin pie, once the fruity esters dissipate after airing. Over 1/8 inch of yeast sediment makes it very cloudy. Overall, an outstanding, creative beer which blends two of my favorite styes, weizenbock and pumpkin ale. I will be searching this out again as it is now my favorite pumpkin beer.

Muddy tarnished amber hue. About a finger of tight white head clings to the glass. Nose is simply amazing, pumpkin pie, vanilla, sweet yeasty notes clove and cardamon. Really smells like fresh pumpkin pie.

A really good beer. I was hoping for more of the weizen yeast to come forward but without still a fantastic brew. Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation but with a very full mouthfeel. Starts with pure pumpkin flavor on the tip of the tongue followed by all the spices that bring out the sweetness of pumpkins along the mid palate. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg and the malt presence almost brings about a vanilla taste. Finishes with a dry spiciness and an underlying hop bitterness.

Mostly pumpkin and spice flavored with the faintest touch of sweetness thats quickly swept away. Definitely showcases true pumpkin flavor along with the spices that go with it without sugaring things up. I wish the "dunkel" flavor came more in to play as that's the entire reason i picked this beer up, but as a pumpkin brew, awesome!

Poured from a 22 oz bomber in to a tulip glass.

A- Pours super murky and thick looking. Mud puddle brown with a 1/2" off white head.

S- The pumpkin is there in the background, but I'm getting a lot of dark fruit and some banana notes very much like a quad.

T- Again, I am very much reminded of a quad. The pumpkin doesn't jump in your face and the spices are just right. This is much different than I expected, but delicious in its own way.

M- Full mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad.

O- A good change of pace pumpkin ale. Not a spice bomb either.
