4.04/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: pale orange, with fizzy white head, great clarity

Aroma: pumpkin and a lot of sweetness and spice. A lot like rich pumpkin pie with whip cream.

Taste: huge pumpkin flavor and sweetness. Definitely the sweetest of the pumpkin ales. Very strong flavor that is slightly curbed on the finish by hop bitterness, but is still a little cloying.

Mouthfeel: full bodied, crisp, medium carbonation

Overall: fantastic and boldly flavored. No lack of flavor at all! Strong pumpkin pie with a lot of sweetness reminiscent of whipped cream topping. Great nutmeg and cinnamon spice flavor. Slight hop bitterness on the finish brings it all together. The only drawback is that is does come off slightly cloying. However, Appearance: pale orange, with fizzy white head, great clarity
