Appearance - a lusty pour into a Maudite glass yields a beer that has a slight hazy, translucent orange glow. Thin cap but manages to lace nonetheless.

Aroma - light pumpkin, strong cinnamon, with a smattering of some other good fall spice aromas that are hard to identify.

Taste - rich malty flavor with layers of pumpkin pie spices all throughout. Very toasty and full-flavored with just enough hops to accentuate the malts and spices, culminating with a nice pie crust finish. The most complete pumpkin ale so far.

Mouthfeel - medium body, sufficient carbonation to give it a crisp autumn feel.

Drinkability - a great pumpkin ale, deserving of its following. I feel lucky to have scored the last sixer from Mitch at my local Shop Kwik. Thanks, Mitch!

This is my favorite pumpkin brew to date. I look forward to the release party every year. Most pumpkin brews are too over the top in spice flavors, but this one is perfect. So perfect that you can drink one after another and love it... All the other pumpkins brews you can enjoy about 1 and choke down any after that.

On draught amazing, bottle (2007) dang good.

the best I've had thus far was 2007's "Ichabod Tripel" only available at the autumnfest party. Oh man I wish I had a keg of that.

Pours light amber with a nice, frothy white head. I suspect that the color comes almost exclusively from pumpkin.

Very light spice notes in the nose, a bit of cooked pumpkin in there as well. Reminiscent of the smells you get walking by a bakery in the height of the fall season.

Slightly sweet flavor with a moderated spice presence. Ends with a surprisingly assertive bitterness.

A bit thin bodied, but quite drinkable, one of my favorite pumpkin ales.

To me, there's nothing more welcoming in Fall than the aroma of pumpkin roasting in the oven. One sniff of this beer and I am reminded of that feeling. This clear medium amber brew has a wonderfully roasty malt and pumpkin spice balanced flavor. Good mouthfeel and body. Finish is clean malt and pumpkin. Nods to birchstick for this one - great trade!
