Great for the fall but not as good as other pumpkin beers. It is too sweet and not as spicy as I would prefer it. Good wheat taste and light brown color. Overall I like it a lot!

Not really much pumpkin flavor. Not the best offering for the style.

One of the better Blue Moon seasonals I've had; so nicely balanced in its spices and drinkability that it gives some of the more recent Shock Top offerings I've had (Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat, Lemon Shandy) a run for their money.

Can live without this one. Doesn't have the great pumpkin flavor you would expect from this seasonal brew.

Admittedly, I don't care for pumpkin beers, and I only drank this to help a friend empty out his beer fridge, but this still wasn't a very good take on the style.

Smells great, if not a tad artificial on the pumpkin. Taste is good, but not enlightening. Points off for weak head, lack of body, and overcarbonation.

Appearance - 3.6/5
A fairly nice light orange-brown. Extremely clear. About 2/3 finger of head when initially poured, dissipated to head within 30 seconds or so. Can see a moderate amount of carbonation rising rapidly to the top.

Smell - 3/5
Nutmeg, pumpkin, alcohol, sweet malts. The aroma is not very strong.

Taste - 2.75/5
Sweet malts are the predominate flavor, followed by subtle fall spices including nutmeg, as well as a fruity alcohol character. Don't taste any pumpkin. Something doesn't seem quite right about the taste, maybe the spices are imbalanced, or the flavor is weird, or something, but I don't particularly like the taste a lot.

Mouthfeel - 3.1/5
Light bodied, fairly crisp. Carbonation is light to moderate. Smooth drink overall.

Overall - 3/5
Overall this is just a pretty weak beer. It's not terrible in any particular aspect, but it is just completely mediochre or less in every way. The aroma is not very strong, the taste seems slightly off, the beer seems a little too watery perhaps. I've definitely had worse pumpkin ales, but you could do much better than this brew.

Has a great dark taste of spices and pumpkin. Great reason why I love the fall season. But this beer isn't too great in hot weathers

This is not a pumpkin ale. Maybe they added pumpkin - maybe they forgot to add it to the batch... Maybe a hint of spice.... Tastes like a basic brown ale to me. Not bad, though. It's good, but not what I'm looking for in the fall.

Solid pumpkin beer that doesn't do much yet doesn't suck.

This was good but not the bests! I would buy a 6 on sale not a 12~

Pours a clear copper color with a really good 2 finger head that hangs around a while leaving decent lacing on a 20oz pub glass.

Smell is pretty good. I get pumpkin and spice along with that wheat smell that is characteristic of all blue moon beer.

Taste is pretty good too. Once again that pumpkin is the main player with the spice taste too. Oh and that wheat taste of a blue moon is there too.

Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation.

Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. I wouldnt rush out and get some of this, there are definitely better choices but with good availability and an above average beer I would not hesitate to buy it if I was craving the pumpkin taste in the fall.
