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.

Uses locally grown Triticale from MA.

A - Big ruby/amber coloration. Small head. Little lacing.

S - Hugely robust pumpkin aroma, bread, nutmeg, cinnamon.

T - Big pumpkin flavor, red apple, dull dead malt.

M - Fairly thick. Has the thickness of apple cider almost. Almost no carbonation. Not much hoppage here.

D - Very, very boring beer. Wouldn't get this again and wouldn't recommend it.

Bottle from Resdstone.
Pours a crystal clear orange amber color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas mostly of nutmeg and cinnamon with a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is sweet with a bready brown sugary maltiness. Cinnamon and nutmeg provide the only counter to the sweetness and the malt is winning. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spiced mouthfeel. Decent enough pumpkin beer, I couldn't drink much of this, but its better than most.
