The beer pours into a snifter glass like a liquid pumpkin, a beautiful murky orange with amber hints and a little white ring of small white bubbles that leave lazy lines of lacing on the glass. There is a nice steady flow of bubbles and odd enough, there is one spot on my glass where a straight line of bubbles is consistently running up the side of the glass. The beer smells like a pumpkin pie, pulpy with pumpkin meat and spicy with nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Sweet and caramel malts could be hiding in the back of the smell but they seem pretty light overall. The beer’s taste follows the nose; it’s a little cloying with the spices which leave a burn on the tongue but overall this beer is a liquid pumpkin pie. The meat tastes a little raw on the tongue and the spices are a little too potent but it comes together in a lovely sip. Mouthfeel is a little fierce with rapid pinpricks of carbonation on the tongue, but this mellows out mostly into a thin syrupy treat. Afterfeel is still tingling from the carbonation and a little burned from the spices. Overall this is a great pumpkin beer; the spice is a little too much, which holds this beer back from being amazing, but by no means stops it from being a great drink. For all you pumpkin beer lovers out there, try it!
