In this blog, we are going to take a look at the first pumpkin and fall beer of 2012. This beer is Punk’n Harvest Pumpkin Ale from Uinta Brewery. If you read my blog posts from this brewery, you are pretty much know a little something about this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
Pumpkin ale has a dark copper color without a head on it. It has a pumpkin like smell to the beer. The beer drinker will experience a ginger to other spices along with a little pumpkin. For being a fall beer it is extremely drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.uintabrewing.com):
This sessionable pumpkin ale is brewed with fresh pumpkin and seasonal spices.
Malt and hops accented with roasted pumpkin and spices of the season. A subtle hint of vanilla and honey. Punk’n is a wonderful compliment to foods with nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove flavors. Try it with roasted turkey, squash or pumpkin ravioli, peach cobbler, or pumpkin cheesecake.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, we are now getting into my seasonal beers that I love but make me sad because the motorcycle is in storage until next spring season. Uinta Brewing is an important brewery to me in the United States. They are pushing the limits of beer brewing to the next level. This beer is kind of organic and it is really good tasting beer. However, Uinta Punk’n is not my favorite pumpkin ale, it is still a really good full flavor beer. I would recommend you trying this beer then giving up on it because it is another pumpkin beer. This is a perfect balance of pumpkin to other spices. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
