I have wanted to try this one for a very long time. I am not usually a big fan of pumpkin beers but I really hope this one wins me over. Body is a glowing orange amber that hosts a two finger frothy light beige head that has decent retention but leaves no lace. Nose is absolutely delicious by itself with distinctive tones of pumpkin bread and creamy eggnog. With first sip you get a very soft pumpkin profile, not harsh at all. Sweet bready notes are all over the tongue. A dusting of cinnamon and graham crackers are easy to pick up on the sides and back of the tongue. This beer is velvety for the style and a lot like cake as it provokes thoughts of desert. Mouthfeel is very much like sweet dough with a hint of spice. This beer is so lovely drinkable, be it somewhat thick and sweet. I wish I had a bunch of this in the cellar for the holiday for many years to come.
