A dark orange, clear beer with a smallish head that fades quickly. Not much lace. The nose is lovely - this beer is brewed with butternut squash and has so much more squash aroma than the many pumpkin beers out there that really only smell like spices, not pumpkin. There are spices here, in the nose and in the tasting - but they're supporting the squash, not dominating it. All of the above is true of the flavor as well; the squash comes through clearly and with a fresh taste backed by hints of clove, allspice, cinnamon and the like. Very light hop note gives it a little definition, as does the fairly crisp carbonation and dry finish.

Perfect for a late Sunday afternoon in Vermont in the fall. Also, everyone who makes a pumpkin ale should be required to try this one.
