First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Advertised as an ale using local PA pumpkin, peaches, and black raspberries, with additional black raspberries added to the secondary; no spice added.

An attractive enough beer at first glance: cloudy, mahogany brown color with a small cap of white head; moderate retention and a bit of soapy lacing. Lots of dirty brown floaties in the solution, and sticking to the glass. Aroma was quite muted, caramel malts and floral notes. For a beer with a taste-bud-stimulating name like "Peach Pumpkinberry," there was pretty much zero fruit to be detected in this beer. [As a novice/intermediate homebrewer, I have to wonder how much supposed fruit they added, and how, and at what point in the brewing process.] Taste was overall pretty mild, caramel malts, toasted bread, mellow floral hops, and perhaps a bit of vegetal pumpkin that really didn't come through in the taste so much as in the texture; not even a trace of peach or berry. Moderately sweet and a bit dry in the finish. Medium body, mild alcohol...no ABV listed, but I'd guess it around the average 5% mark give or take. A fairly drinkable beer, but just didn't deliver what it promised, and was pretty bland and lack-luster overall.
