I generally tend to detest novelty beers, especially pumpkin beers, as I'm not a fan of the flavor of pumpkin, nor the spices used. However, due to my undying support of this brewery, I gave this beer a shot. It was, by far, the most balanced pumpkin beer I've had, and the best representation of the style I believe I've tried.

I wouldn't necessarily sit down and order multiple glasses, but for the style, this was outstanding.

I am not the biggest pumpkin beer fan but received this as a gift in a mix pack. I think because of the way this style is way too over-spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon (shipyard pumpkinhead comes to mind). But this one I really enjoyed. This gift opened my mind to the style again.

On tap at brewery.

Glad that someone added this beer so I could review. This was the best pumpkin beer of the season. Poured dark amber with small off white head that left decent lacing. Aroma was very sweet and mostly spicy (pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, coriander, all spice, etc.) with a little bit of pumpkin coming through. The taste was more of the spice, but with a real pumpkin kick. This beer has the best balance of spice and pumpkin I've encountered. The pumpkin taste was extremely fresh and pleasant. Medium mouthfeel that was easy enough to drink without seeming thin and watery. Overall a real surprise and something I'm looking forward to for next year.

Had this at the brewery on 2014-08-23

Good pumpkin aroma and taste but not over the top. Great balance. Not sweet. Fairly bitter finish.

a clear, dark, amber beer with a light tan head that left only a band of lacing. The aroma is pumpkin pie spice that is heavy on the cinnamon and clove with a sweet caramel maltiness. The beer tastes sweet and spicy with a lot of cinnamon and clove. The yeast brings a mild pie crust taste and the beer finishes sweet and slightly bitter. Pretty good pumpkin beer for sure.
