Can to pint glass. Aroma is atrocious. Sour ,moldy type smell. Almost urine. The good news is that it does not taste anywhere near as bad as it smells. Lots of fall spices early... nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon....and full pumpkin flavour later. Some alka seltzer like aftertaste. Feel is flat. Will save one for the 2015 Double Blind Pumpkin Tasting."

Fresh from the growler. Filled at the Plymouth Meeting Whole Foods.

Pours copper in color with some bright orange highlighting. Forms a fluffy head, but dissipates quickly. Not much for retention. Aroma is weak, but cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and ginger all present in the nose. It's generally sweet. Moderate toastiness and bitterness give it a toasted pumpkin seed character. Both spicing and pumpkin flavor are restrained. Medium-bodied. Light, crisp, and easy-drinking fall brew, though it doesn't rank as one of my favorites for this style. Extra points for a clever name.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a standard pint glass.

Appearance was a brownish slightly orange color with a huge, huge (overly carbonated) off white head. Full lacing.

Smell was totally not what I was expecting. I got pumpkin smells but I also got this overwhelming yeasty and clove smell. Some slight cinnamon and spice.

Flavor follows the nose to a T. The pumpkin flavor is mixed with a heavy dose of clove and yeasty spicy notes. I get some cinnamon and brown sugar sweetness, but the spice is just overwhelming. Finish is clove and brown sugar.

Mouthfeel is sticky and pretty full and the carbonation was over the top.

Overall this is a total miss of a pumpkin beer for me. The yeasty clove spice does not mix with the pumpkin flavors at all, I just don't get it. The King of the hill for pumpkin beers is still ST Pumking and this beer is not even on the radar of that.

PS: I bought an entire six pack and every beer has been overcarbonated, just noting such.

Another can courtesy of the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a brownish/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, a bit of spice. Taste is kind of mild, some pumpkin, light spices, a bit of malts, kind of subdued for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
