A - dare i say "pumpkin-orange"?
S - just like a freshly baked pumpkin pie. I smell pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon. Also a little bit of alcohol, which is not a surprise at 9 ABV
T - tastes almost exactly like it smells. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin beers, but this tastes like a liquid pumpkin pie. That taste lingers on the back of the tongue, with another waft of the alcohol
M - the word "rounds" comes to mind. The taste fills your mouth, and the carbonation is just right
D - something this sweet is definitely something to share or sip. One bomber is about max for a single sitting.

I wouldn't jones for this year-round, but this is a very good welcome to Autumn. I haven't had a lot of Southern Tier beers, but what I've had has been very impressive.

Pours a nice copper orange with 1-2 fingers of tight bubbly head. Smell is, well, pumpkin. Sweet pumpkin and autumn spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. The taste is even more like pumpkin pie with a big dollop of whipped cream. Overall, an interesting brew and very unique even within it's style. I could have one or two these per year, but that's it.
