Big fan of pumpkin beers so I look forward to trying something new.
It looks delicious. Orange-amber bubbly with a half finger of khaki head and a bit of lacing.
Smells soapy, floral, lemony, squash. Faint underlying allspice, and yes..pumpkin meat.. becomes more prominent when the blast of florals fade, and there is caramel malt.
Taste..crackers, bread with a soapy/floral pumpkin element which I believe may be the particular flavor of squash or pumpkin flesh used in the mash. Lemons. There is detectable pumpkin, but I'm not digging how its presented. There isn't enough supporting spice, and quite cleary not enough sweetness..but maybe this is purely fermented pumpkin?
Mouthfeel is way too light and watery. It's akin to fermented pumpkin water. It doesn't hold together at all.
Overall. Not too good. There are far better pumpkin ales. Add in a bit of sweetness?
