Wolaver’s Brewing – Organic Pumpkin Ale (2012)

27 Aug

NicAA: Very cloudy copper, orange tinted ¼ inch head. Nutmeg and cinnamon on the nose, some pumpkin flesh aroma. Rustic. 7/10

NicTM: Thin body and moderate/high carbonation. Not big on spice. Piney hop notes in the finish. It’s on the dry side of pumpkin ales. 6/10

NicP: There is some flavor from the pumpkin meat but personally I think it could handle a fair bit more. And some more spices. 3 pumpkins

NicO: A pretty decent offering, it shouldn’t be the kid left standing last in gym class but it’s not the starting quarterback either. 71/100

Alex AA: dense, cloudy orange – almost smoke-filled scents of nutmeg + cloves (it IS unfiltered) w/ light cinnamon, very light head 7/10

AlexTM: medium body w/ a dry finish, nutmeg w/ earthy hops + carbonation lifts the denseness to give way to a decent portion of pumpkin 7/10

AlexP: The pumpkin has a raw chunkiness to it – like you can almost taste a mash of them in it from just having harvested them on the farm 5/10

AlexO: Rustic, down-home, + crunchy – sometimes you don’t want to have to dress up for your date. It’s your craft beer’s hippie cousin. 74/100
