Poured into a tulip from tap. Had minimal head. Nice golden clear color. Slight pumpkin to the nose. This keg was several months old so the Sourness had pretty much hammered any pumpkin that was going to come thru. But that is ok, it was a great drinking beer

My first sour pumpkin ale, and while the sour flavors work nicely along with some present malt and hops, what was missing was the pumpkin (there was a little flavor, but not nearly enough). In fact, I forgot halfway through that this had any pumpkin in it at all. How does pumpkin work with these tart flavors? I don't know, and that's a problem.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter
(A)- Pours a deep cloudy orange color. Some solid-off white froth with good retention
(S)- Very dry with subtle orange zest and spices. VERY subtle pumpkin
(T)- Dry spices meets a zesty lemon-like biscuit yeast meets pumpkin guts
(M)- Great zesty carbonation level meets an array of spices, pumpkin, and yeast
(O)- Its almost as if it is a saison combined with some pumpkin and spices; was hoping for me, but still enjoyable
