This beer pours with no head whatsoever. It is a bright new copper color and is opaque with fairly apparent carbonation.

This beer has almost no nose that I can detect, in fact, I really can't smell too much at all, maybe a hint of brown sugar?

The taste is a sugary sweetness up front that is moderate and is quickly tempered by a hint of funk . This said, the beer is NOT nearly as crisp, acidic, or funky as with a normal wild ale. As the beer warms I get a bit more funk, but really this is all brown sugar up front. No notes of pumpkin at all even though there is quite a bit in the brew.

Not a bad beer, a very unusual example of the style and one that is well worht a try. I definitely prefer their normal coolship releases though.

I am not a fan of pumpkin beers. The only ones I touch at this point have the words "barrel aged" on the bottle, but I will try anything Allagash puts out, fortunately, this met both requirements.

Remarkably sour for a pumpkin, the pumpkin and molasses come out in the finish. This is a fine Nelgian-style offering, with the seasonal flavour adding to the beer without being the focus. The body was light and invigorating, and I was truly sad when it was gone.

I came by this bottle by accident, and I'm now sad I didn't know better to gather more,
