By far the best pumpkin beer I have ever had. The only disappointment is they do not brew this beer year round. But I guess that is what makes it even more exceptional. This beer never last long when ever it is tap so do not hesitate get one when ever you can.

Poured from a growler I purchased at "Greene's Fine Food's" in Decatur Georgia.

A- Appearance is really orange. This brew had no real head to speak of and zero lacing throughout consumption.

S-Smells of spices, but mostly all pumpkin notes. I don't really smell cloves or anything else but the pumpkin and maybe some cinnamon. Really great.

T-AMAZING. Seriously this is like pumpkin pie in a glass. Starts with pumpkin upfront and finishes clean with more pumpkin and a touch of cinnamon. No alcohol burn for it being such a high ABV% at 8.60.

M-Mouthfeel is light, which is highly surprising since most fall/pumpkin offerings tend to be a bit heavier. Low carbonation makes this a brew I could consume a few of.

O-Quite possibly one of the best pumpkin ales I have ever had. I highly recommend this brew to anyone who likes pumpkin ales. EXCELLENT!

Drank this one out of a tulip glass...

A: I was surprised how really orange it was. Almost looks like Hi-C.

S: Very sweet smell. Pumpkin aroma all around, as well as all of the good fall/holiday spices.

T: Pumpkin pie in a glass. Crisp and sweet.

M: Not super impressed here...but don't need to be. I do like more of a thicker mouthfeel on a beer like this and this one doesn't have a ton of body. But it doesn't take away from the beer overall.

Overall: one of the best pumpkin ales I've had. Highly recommended to anyone into the fall/pumpkin styles.

I just love this beer! I bought 2 cases of it at $6.99 per a bottle. It's a hard beer to find. When they sell it at Whole Foods you have to request it because it's not on the shelves and they only allow 1 bottle per person per day. They sell it at Churchkey for $18 a bottle. This beer smells amazing. Smells like vanilla pumpkin. Tastes like vanilla pumpkin without all those spices like nutmeg and cinnamon that can be overpowering. It's smooth. This is my fav beer of all time so far.
