BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Glarus Brewing Company
Wisconsin, United States
newglarusbrewing.com

Style: Pumpkin Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
It is a fact that Dan, our New Glarus Brewmaster, loves pumpkin pie. So it was inevitable that one day beer and pie would collide. No holiday is complete at our home without home baked pumpkin pie. Just as Dan once baked this pie for Deb, he now creates this brew for you.

First, Wisconsin grown wheat simmers with German Munich Malt. Then he thoroughly stirs in Idaho grown Celeia Hops. Fresh Bavarian Weizen yeast is then ladled into the open top fermentors and a final bottle conditioning makes this beer 100% naturally carbonated. This rich brown Weiss beer pours an elegant spicy nose with a thick creamy head. This Pumpkin Weiss is sure to satisfy your soul’s Pie Lust.

The pumpkin flavor, thankfully, takes a backseat. On the nose, this beer is almost unreadable which in this case is actually a GOOD thing. I had no desire to pump my nose full of chai spice when I took a whiff of this beer, and I was pleasantly surprised to just find a nutty dark ale smell. The pumpkin flavor and spice doesn't hit you until the first sip, and it's really pretty respectful. Liked it more than I expected.

I'm trying this at my bro in law house. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had hints of pumpkin and spice. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with subtle pumpkin and cinnamon notes. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's not too shabby for a pumpkin beer.

Pours a clear copper colour. Smelly like earthy pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove) and earthy hops. Tastes medium-bodied, cereal malts, and the pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove). Lingering spicy finish, quite dry, and less sweet than other pumpkin beers.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, rich, caramel coloring with a light, fluffy, halo of off-white head. Aromas of rich pumpkin spice, sugary highlights, and vanilla. Flavors are pumpkin spice forward, with highlights of rich vanilla, sugary sweet notes, and tangy caramel overlays. Light and smooth in mouth, with a light, crisp linger. The pumpkin spice notes linger on for a solid aftertaste.

Consumed 12/25/15 (Christmas is always a good time for pie)

A: Deep amber, with some reddish copper and burnt orange around the edges - decidedly hazy - pours with a large, creamy, light beige head - fades to a mostly solid cap, medium collar, leaves spots of lacing

S: The first impression is decidedly Belgian - weizen yeast funk, clove, banana, hints of bubblegum - pumpkin pie spices after that, with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and more clove - squashy pumpkin - earthy - some sweetness, caramel and amber malts - dark bread, biscuits

T: I suppose this would be like drinking a dunkelweizen while eating pumpkin pie - the Belgian yeast really stands out to me, with yeasty funk, banana, and clove - banana bread - pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, cinnamon - some pumpkin flesh flavor - squash - earthy - something reminiscent of vanilla bean - wheat bread and caramel - amber malts, cooked malts, lightly sweet overall but mostly dry

M: On the light side of medium, smooth, lightly creamy, nicely carbonated, clean finish

O: Someone's drunk in the kitchen again

This kind of tastes like someone attempted to combine a banana bread and a pumpkin pie, and it mostly works. The Belgian yeast and wheat flavors seem to come first; this seems more like a dunkelweizen than a pumpkin ale. But I do not mean that as a criticism. This is certainly interesting. But considering the straight-up absurdity that New Glarus creates with fruit, this is a little less exciting than expected.
