If you have been following my blog you already know that I really enjoy beer from Sixpoint. Somehow I almost missed their Autumn seasonal release aptly names Autumnation. While visiting The Vault in Lewiston I saw this in the cooler and boy am I glad I did.
I almost always buy single beers or bombers but when it comes to Sixpoint I have no problem buying the 4-pack of cans. This beer is absolutely beautiful, deep orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is the only place this beer lacks as there is a bit of hop and spice but not a lot, pleasant smell but fairly mild. Taste is where this one excels with a complex mix of fruity hops, pine bitterness and just a hint of spice. This is not your typical pumpkin / fall seasonal – it is much better.
Really impressed with Sixpoint beer. If you are not drinking them then you are missing out.
