While trying O’Fallon Pumpkin Beer out for size, a reviewer blurted out, “Dollar Store Candle.” I kind of agree with him- whatever mixture of tastes this beer is, it’s very powerful. Like walking into the Yankee Candle Store and Vera Bradley outlet store all rolled into one shoved into a tiny twisty turny house, and you have to navigate three floors of eye-bleeding handbags, all the while inhaling the acid of about 50 different fragrant candles all at once just to find a bathroom, and then you head to Cobbleskill New York which is apparently pronounced Cooooble-skull, and watch college kids chop wood in the Stihl Timbersports Collegiate Semi-Finals, stay about 30 minutes and then turn around and drive 2 and a half hours home. Not that I am speaking from experience or anything in upstate New York with a winery attached that made the worst wine ever…nope. No idea what you’re talking about.
I would say the flavor of O’Fallon Pumpkin Beer is a combination of ginger bread and citrus. It’s very sweet, but balanced. It’s like eating cookies at Grandma’s…I could launch into another story here, but I’ll save that for another day.
…But for the love of God, get a better label!!
