Dogfish Head Punkin Ale Review

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale

Fruit [Pumpkin] Ale [Type 15] 7.0% ABV

Punkin Ale pours orange, with a short white head. This beer is brewed with pumpkin, brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. There are suspended solids [pumpkin?] visible in the light. The spices hit the tongue first, with a lingering sweetness from the sugar. After that, the bitter, astringent finish. There are some hops in the beer, but not overwhelming. Just some subtle fruity hints.

Rating

One of the best pumpkin beers I have ever had. Really reminds me of a pumpkin pie, but with a kick.
