Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale Is Back For 2013

Dave Wheeler/TSM

I know it’s way to early to be thinking about fall, but enjoying a fall beer is never a bad thing right? Last night I was able to crack open a Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale. Let me say, it had to be one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve ever had. 

Harvest Pumpkin Ale has been stealing people’s heart since 1995. It’s crafted with pumpkin and spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice for a taste you’ll want to fall right into.

Ingredients and Profile

Malts: Munich, Caramel

Hops: Hallertau

Our Twist: Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Clove, Allspice

IBUs: 16

Original Gravity: 15º Plato

ABV: 5.7%


Deep amber-colored ale with brilliant clarity and a rich, white head.


Very complex aroma consisting of malty spice notes.


The taste starts out with assertive malty notes and is quickly balanced with the right amount of harvest spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. There’s a small amount of bitterness to keep the malt sweetness from building up.


A medium-bodied ale with just enough carbonation to balance the rich caramel character.


Finishes with a smooth, clean malt and spice taste. Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and malt gradually fade.

Hands down, it had to be the best Pumpkin Beer I’ve ever had, and it won’t be my last.
