Four + Brewing Punk'n Harvest Pumpkin Ale

punkn.jpgA quick disclaimer before I begin: Punk'n is a seasonal ale that is released by Four + Brewing, a sister company of Uintah Brewing Company. As such, it may only be available in Utah. That being said, let's move on. Punk'n is a beer that is is flavored with pumpkin and spices. Many beer purists don't like fruit beers. I'm not one of these. One of my favorite beer varieties is Belgian white ale, which is flavored with orange peel. Needless to say, finding myself in the spirit of the season, and being a fan of anything pumpkin spice flavored, when I saw a pumpkin ale on the shelf, I grabbed a six-pack.

When you pour this beer into a glass, it leaves a short, light brown head. The appearance of lacing on the glass indicates that this is a beer of reasonably good quality. The color is a brownish burnt orange which appears a deep amber when held into the light. The ale has a nutty aroma and a bouquet with a fair amount of spice. The flavor is more sweet than bitter with a definite pumpkin taste. The finish leaves a very mild pumpkin-laced aftertaste with a very mild amount of spice, which goes away after a few seconds.

Overall, I'd have to say that I enjoyed this pumpkin ale, and I would buy it again. My only complaint is that I wish that spice flavors would be a little stronger and more pronounced. In any case, if you are in the Utah area, you could do far worse that to grab a bottle of Punk'n.
