This pumpkin ale actually tastes of pumpkin and lots of falls spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and Clove. The spices are upfront, and the pumpkin flavor comes through and lingers in the finish. It's also dry , so it becomes drinkeable. Light in body and refreshing. Not sweet or watery which is a good thing, as many other pumpkin brews end up this way. Great balance. Tastes like pumpkin pie. Delicious.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy pumpkin colored orange with a nice off white head which quickly disappears. Just a little lacing present and doesn't cling to the glass well.

Smell: a nice beginning to a pumpkin beer. Smells like a freshly baked pumpkin pie.

Taste- WOW! Tastes exactly like a pumpkin pie! All the pumpkin pie spices showed up to the party! Pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, ginger, and even nutmeg. Tastes like fall in my mouth!

Mouthfeel- Thin body with medium carbonation.

Overall: Dare I say one of the best pumpkin beers I have ever had? I want my pumpkin beers to taste like pumpkin pie and this beer totally does.

Wasatch Pumpkin pours a reddish copper color with a small lacing head. The aroma is mild, with some pumpkin notes. The taste has lots pumpkin pie flavors, creamy pumpkin with lots of nutmeg and hints of cinnamon. Bold flavors, good body, and long lasting flavors. Overall a fantastic pumpkin PIE ale.

Unfortunately, I drank this out of a bottle, so I couldn't properly judge the appearance.

This pumpkin ale smells amazing. There's a clear pumpkin tone with a slight bit of spice, but not so much that it smells like a pumpkin spice malt ball.

The taste is almost as good as the smell. This is likely the most satisfying pumpkin ale that I have had. It has a perfect balance of pure pumpkin taste with a touch of spice that adds a sizzle. The taste becomes slightly strong when you are drinking 12 ounces.

The mouthfeel was stereotypically average, without feeling cheap.

Overall, I would definitely have this one again.

I had this beer at The Happy Gnome, and it was one of nearly 15 pumpkin beers on tap at the time. Wow, I love that place! The beer has a pleasant orange hue with a fairly light head that fades quickly. Hints of ginger, nutmeg and clove in the aroma, along with a subtle earthiness. The flavor mirrors the aroma nicely, with a bit of true pumpkin flavor and light spicing. Balance is key for these beers and I think they have done a wonderful job of showcasing the pumpkin and the spices without overdoing it. The mouthfeel is a bit low due to lower gravity, but not thin. Also, this is one of the only pumpkin beers I've tried that I'd actually have a second pint of. Good job Wasatch!

Best pumpkin ale I've found! Add a sugar and cinnamon rim for an even better experience.

Pours a nice copper color with a decent white head. Good aroma of malt and spices like fresh pumpkin pie,(cinnamon,ginger and vannila). Laced the glass well as I drank it. Pumpkin pie spices do not overpower the slightly sweet pumpkin flavor. The beer is well balanced with a nice malt finish. An excellent 4% session beer and pairs very well with spicy foods.
