Pours a ruby-orange with a clear transparency. Head is a finger in height, with poor retention. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Squash comes off a little artifical, but not frail. Toasty, biscuity malts fall behind to add a little porch for the pumpkin to sit on. Flavor profile is pumpkin up front and then a big hit of spices. Spices really drive the majority of the flavor profile. Beyond pumpkin and spices, hints of wheat, straw, toasty, biscuity malts add some depth. Mouth feel is medium-thin with a lighty fuzzy, crisp texture. Overall, it drinks easy and smooth, and while the notes come off a little artificial and loud, it still makes for a tasty sipper.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip. Surprised to see a 'best by'

L: Clear copper amber pour with 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Falls fast... leaves a modest ring of lacing.

S: Pumpkin and pie spices. Cinnamon and clove. Smells like fall.

T/F: Toasted grains and pumpkin... sweet with pie spices. Not much hops for balancing... light bodied and effervescent.

O: An easy drinking pumpkin soda... not much 'beer' to it, but better than I expected.

(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
