3.16/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

This poured out as a hazy yellow color with a thin quick fading head on top. The retention was gone and so was any form of lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer gives off a lot of Clove, possibly too much since the clove aromas would already be there from the wheat ale yeast. The taste of the beer packs a pretty hefty punch upfront with a big pumpkin and spice flavor, then settles into a much more mild flavor that isn't all that impressive. The mouthfeel of the beer is light bodied and decently carbonated. Overall it's a bit of a spice bomb... could be reworked and possibly made better in years to come.

3.52/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Slightly hazy, brownish orange with plenty of carbonation. A small amount of head dissipates quickly with traces left behind.

Smell: Very sweet, and giving off hints of pumpkin, allspice, and freshly baked cookies. Very strong and clean scents coming through, smelling more like a dessert than beer.

Taste: The allspice and pumpkin flavors come through very clearly first, followed by an increasing citrusy, floral sourness. Finishes off with a very slight hoppy bitterness. Hardly a trace of alcohol. Doesn't taste as sweet as it smells.

Mouthfeel: Goes down very smooth. Plenty of carbonation that almost masks the taste at first. Light-moderate overall feel.

Overall: It’s a seasonal brew but I felt like I could enjoy this any time of year (it’s February). I liked it … maybe not the best pumpkin out there but it’s solid. Thanks to KF for bringing me this rare one.
