look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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.

very heavy on the clove and cinnamon. would have preferred more 'beer' characteristics and less pumpkin pie/soda pop taste. how you experience this brew will depend what you're after. I was expecting a beer and was disappointed.

Poured into a shaker pint glass, yielded a slight half inch head that quickly faded to a thin film, leaving no lacing down the glass. Aroma was pretty scarce with a muted bit of spice, and something a bit sour I couldn't quite grasp. The taste was about the same, with the spice, especially nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon and clove. I also got just a hint of pumpkin, and a slight bit of hop bitterness and the same sour taste as what I smelled. Mouthfeel was pretty thin, but fairly well carbonated, probably the biggest redeeming value of the beer. Overall, this is not the greatest representation of the style, told my wife not to buy this from Trader Joe's in the future.
