Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Imagine a pumpkin vine wound its way in a field of barley, and a brewer harvested it all to make a beer. Add Northwestern hops and a blend of spices, and you've got UFO Pumpkin. The malt combination provides a smooth body and slightly sweet flavor, which balances perfectly with the earthy notes derived from the pure pumpkin. And like all of our UFO beers, UFO Pumpkin is unfiltered so all the wonderful flavors are right there in your glass. Cheers!

Pours a hazy but bright orange colour with a limited off-white head that disappears quickly. Earthy aroma of spices and fruit with a respectable malt backbone. The flavour has a real depth to it, with light malts complementing the gourd elements. The spices are not overpowering and are not "typical pumpkin pie" - there is a genuineness in here that is both surprising and delightful. Glad to have purchased.

Harpoon Brewery - UFO Pumpkin, poured into a UFO hefeweizen glass.

Look - Pours a hazy copper amber with a thick foamy head that retains a little but mostly dissipates quickly. Great chunky lacing but it vanishes quickly.

Smell - Pumpkin abound here, some sour wheatiness underneath but pumpkin is 90% of the aroma with some spice alongside.

Taste - Tons of spice with pumpkin coming in after, then cinnamon and nutmeg.

Mouthfeel - Medium to heavier body, slightly sticky, not super boozy or anything. Drinkability is good but not great, it's thick and hearty but not lick your lips quality.

Overall - Interestingly this brew was completely different in a glass as opposed to right out of the bottle. In the bottle the drinkability was somewhat lower but it tasted like pumpkin pie, which was pretty cool I am not really a fan of pumpkin beers or fruit beers in general, but this brew was respectably done.
