Served on-tap at the brewery.
A - Pours murky brown with a small half finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty strings of lace down the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of pumpkin pulp, nutmeg, ginger, touch of cinnamon, dash of light funk from the saison yeast and some mild caramel and toffee from the malt.
T - Starts off with the pulpy pumpkin quickly being enveloped by the various pie spices, light funk and the mild toffee and caramel sweetness. Finish is rather spicy, lingering long after the finish.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, spicy feel throughout. The booze is rather well hidden, only really coming out of the shadows once it comes to room temperature.
O - A rather nice pumpkin beer. I prefer them to have less spice than actual pumpkin flavor, and this one follows that pretty well. If you like Pumpkin beers this is definitely worth seeking out.

Super excited to pull the cork on this and see what Troegs has conjured up. Note, Troegs must still be working out the kinks in their corking machine, cause this thing was damn near impossible to remove. I was actually considering pulling out the wine opener.
Pours a crystal clear deep copper color, with a small thin head. Smells of pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a bit of clove. There is something in there as well that is crust or bread reminiscent.
Taste is pretty dang solid. A blast of spices fades to a bready caramel like sweetness, then the spices come back on the finish. Cinnamon and nutmeg hold the stage for the spices, but I’m almost certain there is some clove and or allspice going on as well. The back and forth between the spice and sweet is quite nice.
Mouthfeel is spot on. I had heard rumors of excessive carbonation and thinness, but I experienced none of that. It doesn’t have the oily slickness that pumking has, but it certainly has a mouthfeel that is on par for the beer.
Another Troegs offering that I think is worth picking up. I wouldn’t buy a case of it, but I would certainly drink a few over the fall season.
