(12 oz bottle - 'Harvest Pumpkin Wheat - Brewer's Select' ... poured into a snifter)

L: curiously crystal-clear deep amber near garnet-colored liquid; finger-high head on pour, rapidly reduced to thin, bubbly collar... only little nuggets of lace just slide down

S: spicing isn't too bad, though it seems to be the generic 'pumpkin pie spice' kit applied - no one spices sticks out of the pack... later the spices die off and gourd cord is all that remains

T: pie spice; nutty, lightly-toasty, cereal malt; little sweetness... ginger and allspice and some toasty malt seem to linger most in aftertaste... kind of a straight-ahead, generic pumpkin ale taste, but decent for what it is... I think because the finish is a bit dry and mild, probably why others declaring this 'watered down'

F: not much going on... has a touch of lean muscle in its body, but no definition... mild, light, quietly dry finish; bottom end a bit thin

O: didn't read the label well enough when I purchased the single, assumed this was the regular pumpkin ale - but apparently they'd changed the name? - https://gotbeer.com/beers/specialty-beers/pumpkin-beer/blue-moon-harvest-pumpkin-wheat

Great head retention. Lacy af. But that aftertaste...blech. And it just got worse with each watery mouthful. No. No, no, no.

Yes, I agree that this beer is watered down. If you want a cheaply made pumpkin ale with just a slight amount of pumpkin & spices added to it then you can't go wrong with Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale. This is definitely a one & done pumpkin beer for me. Man I tell you I'm glad that I didn't purchase an entire 6 pack of this. On the bright side of things at least this is better than Shipyard Pumpkinhead LOL. Cheers! C

A - Pours a clear amber with a ten finger off white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving no lacing.

S - Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.

T - The taste is a very mild mix of pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg and bready malts.

M - Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Watery mouthfeel with a soft finish.

O - This is a watered down version of a pumpkin ale. Very underwhelming.

12oz bottle poured into Duvel tulip. Smudged date probably on neck.

Appearance - Medium offwhite head with medium-low retention and little to no lacing. Clear brown-amber body with slight carbonation. 3

Smell - Pumpkin spice,typical in style with a body of hay. Sweetness and vanilla too. 3.75

Taste - Perfume and alcohol. No body to it, just harsh chemical flavorings all around. 1.75

Mouthfeel - Very thin and astringent. 1.5

Overall - Barely passable even as the gimmick that it is. 1.75

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Normal amber with a lot of visible carbonation. Decent white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Spiced pumpkin, citrus, and wheat mash.

Taste: Very mild pumpkin flavor...and that's about it. It's like carbonated water with the essence of pumpkin. No real malt or hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, high carbonation.

Overall: Disappointing. While I'm not sure a strong pumpkin flavor would be great, I didn't expect it to be so weak as to be worthless.
