Pumpkin ale pours a bright pale yellow color with very small head. There is a very fake pumpkin aroma. The taste has a fake pumpkin flavor, with hints of vanilla. Good body, but over carbonated, and the fake flavor makes it unpleasant. Overall the vanilla flavors are nice, but the fake overpowering flavors are are just not good.

Beautiful orange-tinged yellow color with an appealing white foam in the tall Maredsous glass. Lots of prickly carbonation. Strange smell of Jello and some sort of cupcake, however. I can't believe the weird spice is cinnamon.

The flavor starts with an uncomprehending moment as the citrus acidity, the bitterish spices, and the tart candy taste all roil about in the mouth. The flavor is like some tropical fruit soda with a touch of tamarind and butterscotch Lifesavers. The slight bitterness of undetermined origin does little to make this palatable.

This is one pumpkin that doesn't rise above the flotsam. The pleasant sudsy mouthfeel is the only redeeming feature. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Trader Joe's.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with active carbonation and a one finger white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, a little bit of soap astringency. Flavor is quite sweet malt, artificial pumpkin, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Light bodied with nice carbonation. This has all the ingrediants of a pumpkin ale, but seems slapped together, kind of like an overly sweet, commercially made pumpkin pie. Too sweet and artificial tasting, but drinkable with food.
