A- Orange/amber body with almost no head, just some white bubbles around the edges of the glass.

S- Pumpkin, oak, vanilla, some faint boozy sweetness.

T- Up front tastes like a malty pumpkin ale, but the finish is vanilla, sweet bourbon, with a dash of nutmeg.

M- High carbonation, medium bodied, good sipper.

O- A nice one-off change of pace pumpkin beer. Could use a little more balance, but was enjoyable.

Was unaware this was a limited release. I bought this cause I thought it was cheap but it looks like I misread the price tag. Hope for the best. Served in a tulip.

A: Pours a clear, crisp, golden-amber-orange color, initially there is a short off white head present but it dissipates quickly, leaving small patches of lacing.

S: Wonderful aroma, pumpkins, spices, cinnamon, brown sugars, malts, wheat, oranges

T: Tastes sweet. Hints of pumpkin, oranges, cinnamon, brown sugar, tinge of hops, malts

M: Full bodied beer with ample amounts of carbonation, rich and robust

O: Overall, this was pretty good but I probably would not pay $3 for another bottle. It was not that great but still I was pretty good and it's a cold fall day in central Michigan so thus this made me feel a bit better. Recommended.
