"It's that time again... the pumpkin beers have grown up and are ready to be picked from the patch. Saranac Pumpkin Ale has got a pretty big nose, though it's not really of pumpkin, which is what many initiates to this style expect, for obvious reasons. In our view, few pumpkin beers really get anywhere near what pumpkin tastes like (and for good reason). They should probably be called "pumpkin pie beers" if we're to have a more realistic indication of aroma and flavor. What really sets this version of the style apart from others is the deep-seated mustiness and yeast character as well as fresh wort (pre-fermented "beer") and grains amongst the various spicy qualities. Speaking of which, there's cinnamon, cloves, and allspice all atop a faintly acrid roasted character. Be prepared, this sucker doesn't hold back on the spices - they are BIG in this beer, and the aroma really blossoms into a full roar of spicy characters, with vanilla and a slight woody character coming through as it warms. Notice how it takes a second after the sip goes down for that rush and zing to kick in, and how it is later rounded out by a nice beery base of clean malts and grains. Finishes relatively clean considering the zesty burst that kicks things off. Hops are nowhere to be detected, really - only a bitter balance is executed, but flavors are difficult to get at amidst the wash of spice notes. We thought about pairing this with cinnamon toast. Problem with that can be that this style of beer becomes bland by comparison to the real thing (cinnamon)... So, a more conservative approach would be to serve with fresh pumpkin-stuffed tortellini served in a sage and butter-walnut sauce. The brewery recommends serving with fowl and game birds. We'd go bacon-wrapped quail or pheasant. Would it be wrong to hand these out to trick-or-treaters? (To give to their parents, of course.)" - Brewery Notes
