Nice aroma of coriander with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon - pumpkin pie spices.
Pours a decent head with good retention and spotty lacing. A pretty clear golden amber color - the color of a ripe pumpkin. Good carbonation with continuous streams of bubbles from the bottom.
Pumpkin beers are not really a favorite, but this beer has improved with six months aging. When first sampled in October, it was not very impressive. Somewhat flat and tinny. While it still has a hint of minerals, the pumpkin pie spice predominates -- it has mellowed and is more well-rounded with better definition of the herbs. Succinct, pumpkin pie aftertaste is pushed by a mild hop rush through the middle of the slosh.
Went surprisingly well with a bowl of Doll'ed-up pickled-vegetable flavored ramen noodles with lemongrass tofu, cilantro and vegetables. Still not my cup of tea though, except maybe as a party novelty.
