I finally found this beer! It’s been on my list of beers to try since it came out. Let’s see how it was.
Style: Pumpkin Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “It’s a simple story; we brew this beer because we like pumpkin (pumpkin pie, really) and thought an unfiltered pumpkin ale would be great, especially during the New England fall. Turns out it is. 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.”
Random: I’m having a serious craving for wings.
This beer poured with a one and a half finger white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a very hazy, warm orange color with light carbonation. The nose was warm with wheat and pumpkin and a touch of cinnamon. The taste was equally warm with orange and very light pumpkin with no spice to it. It had some honey sweetness at the end of the sip. The body was on the lighter side with carbonation. It had a quick finish with orange and pumpkin. This was a good wheat beer with pumpkin, but definitely did not fulfill the expectation of a pumpkin ale. Despite this, I liked it and would have it again, especially because it’s such an easy drinker. I would have it again.
