5/5 rDev +18.5%
Advertises a "pumpkin pie" flavor and delivers with no remorse or apology. Otherwise solid without any negative qualities. The degree of pumpkin pie taste in this brew is intense, and rivaled by none in my experience thus far; leans to the sweet side. Everything I would ever hope a pumpkin ale to be not only promised, but realized.

4.25/5 rDev +0.7%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Dated 07/17/14.
A: 4.0 Chestnut brown-orange body with minimal haze. 1/2 finger of off-white head. Ok retention. Minimal lacing.
S: 4.5 Nice, true pumpkin notes with accents of nutmeg, caramel, brown sugar. More subtle cinnamon. Vanilla. Some other fruits make a low-key cameo: Apple, pear, apricot.
T: 4.25 Sweet malt with pumpkin and complementary spice open this one up. The hops slowly build to a semi-dry finish. Some lingering spice, pumpkin and a touch of alcohol heat in the aftertaste.
M: 3.75 Moderate carbonation with a slight prickliness. Moderate to full body with a touch of stickiness. Warming.
O: 4.25 Very nice pumpkin brew with some very legit pumpkin characteristics happening. My first pumpkin beer of the season and I must say it ranks well above the majority of those I had last season. Excellent.
