Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Notes / Commercial Description:
The 2012 harvest on our Mom & Pop’s farm was fruitful and this brew uses 100 fresh pumpkins and 40 organic squash. We prepared, cooked, and pureed all the gourds with the help of our friends at Carrie Anne’s Modern Diner. A blend of autumn spices adds to the intense pumpkin flavors. Uses locally grown Triticale from MA.

A: Deep maple amber. Thick, foamy 2F off white head.

S: Blend of spices atop semi-sweet pumpkin and brown sugar. Allspice, cloves. Dash of nutmeg and cinnamon.

M: Rich and smooth. Medium bodied.

T: Biscuity malt with some sugar beet molasses. Rich spices layer in and fade out like changing fall leaves. Slightly bitter and buttery, rich vegetal gourd flavor. Very clean tasting throughout.

From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. 2015 batch. Sampled on November 6, 2015.

The color of the pour is amber-orange with a cream colored head.

Nice aroma of nutmeg, Allspice, and other pumpkin spices along with a sweet undercurrent of malts.

Medium and smooth body.

The flavor brings out the same spice and sweetness with a mild bitter finale. Lingers some. Just a nice pumpkin lager.

Bottled dated 10/2/15; drank in a tulip glass on 10/30/15; this was a very limited bottle release (if any) in 2014 so I have not tried this beer for a couple years; I distinctly remember the color of the beer in the past being very light, almost golden, as opposed to the brown-red hue that this version takes on (am I wrong on that?)
