Bought this on clearance at a local shop for $3, saw good reviews so I figured I would give it a shot.

Poured into an Ommeggang beer glass.

A: Poured right out of the fridge and into the glass. Pours a gorgeous golden color with a hint of orange to it. A medium sized head, and just all around gorgeous.

S: Smell is ungodly. Smells exactly like a pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. It is an amazing smell, likely one of the best smelling beers I have ever come across. Instantly filled the air with this aroma. Almost worth buying solely for the smell.

T: Taste is amazing, tastes just as it smells. It is like astronaut food haha, tastes exactly like pumpkin pie. One of the few beers that the taste matches the aroma. Well done.

M: Very smooth and great mouthfeel. Am usually not a huge fan of pumpkin beers, but this one has completely changed my mind.

O: Amazing aroma, great taste, and just an overall well well done beer. I will rarely give a beer a 5.0 but this is one beer that I feel is quite deserving of it.

Poured into a duvel at brouwers in seattle.

Appearance- Beautiful orange color with a finger of Whipped cream colored head. Leaving layers of head as you sip it down

Smell- pumkin pie with a hint of maple, nutmeg, cloves and allspice

Tatse- very forward with pumkin with subtle notes of maple, cloves and nutmeg.

Mouth- very smooth, creamy and full bodied

Overall this is a great beer, have with dessert or just for dessert Goes down almost to good.

Serving type: on-tap
