Description on the neck of the bottle is spot on. You cannot miss the pumpkin, nutmeg, and cloves. Not overwhelming pumpkin thankfully. Well balanced between the flavors. Very nice on a cool and crisp autumn evening.

Its a good beer, but a decent pumpkin beer. If you ordered a pumpkin beer and this is what came out, you wouldn't send it back, but for Pumpkin beer fans, there are plenty of better options. Good not Great.

Nutmeg, pumpkin, allspice, and clove dominate the aroma.

Flavor is more wheat and muddled citrus upfront, finishing lightly sweet and nutty. Clove and nutmeg contrast the citrus strangely.

Poured at 50°F from a 12oz bottle (best by 29Feb16) into a pint glass. Consumed on 15Dec15.
LOOK: Pours with two fingers of off-white foam that dissipates into a half fingers worth after 2 minutes and 35 seconds. Orange in color. Rising bubbles are small in size and subtle in quantity. Lacing is thin and moderate.
SMELL: Strong aromas of pumpkin entangle with mild aromas of caramel, cinnamon, cloves, wheat, and nutmeg.
TASTE: The initial taste is of strong pumpkin and mild caramel flavors. Mild flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon along with subtle clove flavors immediately follow. Mild wheat flavors enter lastly as pumpkin flavors remain, but all other flavors grow stronger.
FEEL: Somewhere between full-bodied and medium-bodied. Carbonation is moderate. Goes down smooth. Finishes crisp.
NOTE: Talk about a surprise! I've never before had a good experience with a Blue Moon beer. They've been mediocre at best, but I thought this was pretty good! Everything was where it needed to be.

Amber in color with a fingernail of brilliant white. Aroma is moderately spiced with nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice. I taste moderately aggressive nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. The mouth is moderately carbonated and dry.

Some pumpkin, tad bit of spice, but poorly balanced.
