Gushed a bit upon opening, pours a hazed & very effervescent amber with 3 fingers of pearl white head. Stays hazed, nice lacing 7 head retention
S: Tartness, orange peel, & grapefruit, coriander
T: Coriander, white pepper, grapefruit, tartness, a touch of nutmeg & squashyness up front, plus dryness & lovely tartnesss. Tartness, a touch of coriander/all-spice as this warms, plus grapefruit, so drinkable& just a kiss of funk. Finishes tart with grapefruit & coriander, plus oaky dryness
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, smooths out to awesomeness
Not getting a ton of Pumpkin or cacao, but a damn fine beer, giving it a .5 deduction for not screaming pumpkin to me, but miles better than most of this ilk. Super refreshing, seems more like a Summer beer, but maybe just a bit past it's prime. I'm results driven & I like/love this!
