Trying something a little different this week - I sourced all of the seasonal releases of Pumpkin beers that I could find and have undertaken the very "arduous" "task" of trying them all. It was too much work for one person to undertake alone, so I recruited my oldest friend and her partner-in-food-and-life, as well as my own p.i.f.a.l. and we readied ourselves for some epic pumpkin-flavoured alcoholic beverages.
thankfully my friends are never far their trusty headlamp
I will present these from lightest tasting to strongest tasting. All of the selection were actually extremely drinkable and tasty, but there was significant variation between the brews so I will attempt to describe them so you can acquire the one that matches your preference(s) the best!
Tree Brewing • 6.4% • 650mL • Cook St. Liquor Store
This beer had the least flavour of all of our selections - a very neutral, subtle taste. I wish we had sampled this one first, because it was kind of overpowered by its predecessors. Tasting it again the next day on its own, it does have a hint of pumpkin spice flavours but they are extremely, extremely subtle. More pumpkin, way, way less pumpkin spice. On its own, I like it a lot - as part of a sampler it was lost. This was the most "beery" of all of the selections. This was also my favourite packaging! I love the name, I love their logo and the painted labels are so classy. Total simplicity on the labelling - no cute quote or rationale about the pumpkinness.
