Appearance: Hazy golden orange, with a large, dense, fine-beaded off-white head. Thick, fine-beaded lacing coats the glass walls in an unbroken sheet. Sparse streams of minute bubbles drift lazily to the surface.

Aroma: Massive pumpkin pie spice aroma, gloriously over-the-top. The pumpkin pie spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and ginger are spot on. The malt contributes a remarkable note of pie crust. Were I blindfolded, by the aroma, I would think this was a pumpkin pie from the refrigerator.

Taste: The taste begins with caramel, roasted pumpkin, and a surge of pumpkin pie spices,. A wave of sweet and spicy alcohol soon follows, offering a distinct warming quality. These flavors compliment each other throughout the lingering taste, with pie crust, somewhat like graham cracker, bringing the taste to a graceful close.

Mouth feel: Very smooth, exceptionally soft, with only a hint of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Simply excellent, like drinking pumpkin pie. This would be an elegant compliment to a Thanksgiving dinner.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

In Memoriam: Pumpkin (April 1998 - November 22, 2014) - the best cat ever. We will always miss you.

Sampled yesterday on 3/8/15. Been almost 3 years since I had one of these. My friend bought a case (4-4packs) last September and gave me 3 bottle last Thursday. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer coolr and pouted in to a handled-glass stein.

This seasonal 'Pumpkin Ale' pours a hazy mahogany in color with about a half-finger off-white foamy head. A good amount of lacing is seen with each sip, close to ring-like even. Sediment is seen in the bottom of the bottle after the pour. The aroma is like a fresh pumpkin pie. Fantastic! Even more going on with the taste as their are the perfect amount of spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and even a hint of clove in the mix. Really smooth and goes down so easy. One of the BEST pumpkin ales on the market. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Love this one but I do remembered how good it was from back in 2012. This is as good as it gets!

Too heavy on the spices or maybe a spice. Has raisin-y flavor.

Aroma is pie crust, spices/cinnamon, slight mustiness and a hint of pumpkin. The flavor is spices/cinnamon, bread/pie crust, a hint of fruit and a tart finish.
