Poured from a 750 ml into a large tulip glass. Pours an orange/gold color with an inch of off-white head that fall quickly leaving a ring around the glass. Smell is rum. Very, very rum. Golden rum to be precise. Weirdly similar, almost exactly the same, as rum. You can get the pumpkin a bit, but only a tad, spices about the same. Taste is a bit more complex. But mostly rum. The pumpkin is present, but in the background, with honey, nutmeg, and spices (clove, maybe?) coming in in the fore as the beer sits on the palate and as you swallow. Fairly full bodied with a slight to medium warming alcohol presence. Overall, it’s enjoyable to drink but seems like a long shot from the base style as the rum character quickly overpowers the saison character, as well as the pumpkin and spice. However, it was last year and the year before that I had the base beer, so perhaps they went a slightly different direction this year and then the barrel aging took it even further away from what I remember.

Overall a well done Bree. For my taste the alcohol feel is a bit string but the rum is bold and buttery. Color is pumpkin, mouth feel is spicy and warm

Had it on release night and then bought some bottles to try at home. Some lacing, very good to smell, sweet aftertaste. Almost caramelized. Very satisfying full body. Definitely rum infused. Very solid and very very good beer.

Nice overall pumpkin flavor with a mixture of Apple sauce, anise, nutmeg and rum. It's no Avery Rumpkin, but it's very nicely done and worth drinking again.
