      Yellow. Citrus-spicy aroma. Citrusy, spicy, sweet, well-balanced. It's not Celis, but it's not bad.

      Amber, moderate carbonation, thick head. Some pumpkin aroma, hint of spice. Lots of pumpkin flavor, no spices. Tastes fairly vegetal, just like a pumpkin would. Paris and Dad both say "lots of spice, not much pumpkin".

    4.60% abv.

      Looks like fizzy water. Smells like lime, some solvent - aftershave. Thick lemon lime soda. Some grapefruit. Very drying at the end. I guess it's supposed to taste like this.
