The bottle reads, “Bewitched and brewed with pagan spirit”, and man do I believe it! This is a true pumpkin beer, for any lover of the style. Golden orange in color with amber highlights throughout and a creamy head. The bouquet is beautiful and immediately inviting: sweet spice, sweet citrus resin oils, brown sugar. Full and robust in the mouth with nice baked pumpkin flavors, allspice, vanilla, hop spice and oil. The finish is long and delicious, and with the weight and complexity the higher abv is barely noticeable. Wow.
