This Pumpkin Ale is by far my favorite one on the market. I'm so in love with it. I can drink two bottles in a role (over the course of two hours). I LOVE that whipped cream/pie crust flavor it carries. The traditional pumpkin pie spices are there but not too overpowering like MOST pumpkin ales (breweries that just jump on the bandwagon and care little about crafting good beer). The candied pumpkin flavor accompanied by the bitter hops merges together beautifully. I hope Southern Tier never changes their recipe. It's flawless. I purchased a whole case of this beer last week. Talk about pricy, but hey, that's how much I love it, and my book royalties covered it. :D

The best pumpkin brew I've tasted. I usually don't care for the pumpkin brews due to the fact the pumpkin is always secondary to the spices which overpower the entire flavor. I like the fact pumpkin takes the foreground in this beer
I get a roasted pumpkin flavor with vanilla and spices.
They do have seemed to change the recipe from last year though- seems to be more of a hop presence which I like because its balances the sweetness.
A well made beer and I won't drink any other pumpkin brews...
