Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Imagine a pumpkin vine wound its way in a field of barley, and a brewer harvested it all to make a beer. Add Northwestern hops and a blend of spices, and you've got UFO Pumpkin. The malt combination provides a smooth body and slightly sweet flavor, which balances perfectly with the earthy notes derived from the pure pumpkin. And like all of our UFO beers, UFO Pumpkin is unfiltered so all the wonderful flavors are right there in your glass. Cheers!

Presentation: Label is pretty plain with a nice fall color scheme. The front label giving a bit of brewery info and a small description of the beer. Neck label shows the beer in a weizen glass.

Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 16oz imperial pint led to a 3 finger off white slightly tan head of medium density atop a very hazy brownish orange colored beer that has noticeable carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. Excellent retention at 5min 59sec before fading to a thick ring and coating with excellent lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of clove, nutmeg, and pumpkin that has a definite Hefeweizen tone to the aroma. Also has a nice sweet malt aroma.

Flavor/Taste: Taste is heavy on pumpkin and clove with a bit of nutmeg and a pepper bite. Again, as in the aroma, has hefeweizen characteristics on the palette with hints of banana and light fruits. Midpoint has a nice biscuit bready malt flavor accompanied by pumpkin. Back end is dominated by pumpkin and spices with a pumpkin aftertaste.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the thick sided of medium bodied with a smooth slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable, refreshing, and tasty.

Overall/Comments: A very good pumpkin ale overall that has a nice flavor profile but is not a real stand out. The unfiltered aspect added a bit of intrigue to this offering. Classified as a Pumpkin Ale @ 5.9% ABV. Consumed 10/13/2013.

I originally poured this beer a bit too cold. As I let it sit I could taste and smell the flavors and spices much better.

A- Amber and clouded with a small white head. The unfiltered process makes it look thicker than you would think.

S- Nice spice and clove aroma. Not overpowering. Don't expect a cider.

T- Carbonation with spice on the foretaste on the front of the tongue and cloves on the aftertaste sitting on the sides of your tongue.

M- Carbonated and light. Very easy to drink.

O- I'm not much of a pumpkin ale drinker. Every other pumpkin ale I've drank has always been thick and spicy but this was a different experience and actually quite enjoyable. I would describe it like a light pumpkin sponge cake kind of beer.
