Picked up the 2011 Harvest Collection 12 pack, which contains the Pumpkin Ale as the highlight and their newly bottled Rauchebier.
First beer of the night, and with the temperatures lingering at or above 100 degrees, it definitely does not feel like Fall yet.
This beer has your typical rustic amber body, highlights of orange and ruby with strong carbonation along with a fluffy white half inch head.
Aroma is very aromatic, fresh baked pumpkin with spices. Cinnamon, all spice, cloves, nutmeg. Rich with sweetness. Caramel and earthy malt base.
Taste is huge for the ABV, very reminiscent of Dogfish Heads Pumpkin Ale. Very much like the nose, with a stronger malt presence. Spices are strong but lead to a slick mouthfeel. Strong yet delicious.
Harvest Pumpkin Ale has some surprisingly good characteristics. It's a much bigger beer than it really is. The flavors are highly present and very assertive. You can drink one of these and thoroughly enjoy it and then move onto something more sessionable.
