Appearance- Very orange, thin frothy top, cloudy enough not to see through it. Looks like a good brew from the looks of it.

Nose- Malt, some creamy pumpkin notes. Some spice to it. A little sweetness lingers.

Taste- Pumpkin puree rather than pie-like. A lot less sweet then a lot of other pumpkin ales but pumpkin flavored nonetheless. A little bitterness although not hoppy, some toasted gingerbread adds a nice quality. Subtle wash of alcohol at the end with some tartiness.

Mouthfeel- Thin and slightly watery, I expected something a little more robust for a fall seasonal. Enough alcohol for a small warming effect on the finish leaving a thin coat on the palate.

Overall- First beer I've had from Wild Onion. A nice deviation to the overdone absurdly sweet pumpkin beers around. However, the taste lacked that oomph that I had hoped for that separates the great pumpkin ales from the rest.
