Pumpkin orange body. Lots of carbonation. Thick off white head. Sticky and lasting lace.

Aroma is intensely spicy. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin bread. Mild hops.

Flavor is as spicy as great pumpkin bread. Loads of the aforementioned spices. Absolutely perfect for the season. Pumpkin shines through well. I love it. Some nuts come into play. Spicy hops finish. Delicious. One of the best pumkpin beers I’ve had in terms of taste.

Thick, spicy mouthfeel. Chewy and bready. Just great.

Superbly drinkable.

This beats the hell out of most pumpkin beers hands down.

Golden bodied with a touch of haze. Loads of rushing carbonation. White head loadly sizzles its way to a hefty skimming, then sticks the duration.
Nose full of cinnamon, nutmeg and faint malts. Hops are hidden underneath, but revealed upon examination.
Spice in very up-front, heavy again on the cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Not obnoxious, as the bready malts lay down a solid foundation. Pumpkin taste is evident (as opposed to so many that feature only the associated spices). Wet paper flavors towards the finish. Faintly spicy hops close the deal.
Light-medium bodied and quite lively in the mouth. Aides to the drinkability.
This is a solid version of a style I tend to loathe. If you are a fan then this is one to check out. It is eons better than the other pumpkins I've had recently (Lakefront and J.T. Whitney's).
Quite respectable, but not enough to convert me.

Big thanks goes out to StayWhatYouAre2 for sending me this one recently! Served from bottle into a Duck-Rabbit nonic. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow-orange with a one finger slightly off-white head that remained throughout. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, pumpkin, nutmeg, brown sugar, all spice, pumpkin spice, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, pumpkin, spice, nutmeg, wood, subtle cinnamon, and pumpkin spice. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. There was quite a bit going on in this brew that really kept your interest peaked if I am honest. There was a big bit of complexity going on here that I really love to see in Pumpkin beers and this one really delivered. A great example of the style that I wouldn’t mind having again in the future during the season.

Sampled at the brewery and taken from notes. Slightly hazy and copper in color, this brew carried a a full head without being over carbonated. The nose screamed pumpkin at you, the mouthfeel was very liught, surprisingly. The flavor carries on the pumpkin tradition, no malt or hop detected at this point, the finish starts off puckery and then returns to the pumpkin. 54% ABV.
