Gourd-geous Brews--Weiss O'Lantern
W.O. has the hazy golden colour of a harvest moon and it's topped with a lusty white head. Compared to some of the other pumpkin beers on offer this year, the pumpkin aroma is fairly mild, supported by some autumn spice notes. Notwithstanding the aroma, there is a pretty solid pumpkin-y foundation in the flavour. A healthy dose of spice builds on that flavour. The label says it contains ginger, and it comes through effectively.
Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
