In the quaint corners of Aroma Thyme Bistro, where the aroma of spices mingles with the crisp autumn air, a magical transformation is taking place. Fall has woven its golden tapestry across the world, and in the heart of this season, a cherished tradition is being upheld—the arrival of the pumpkin beer season. And not just any pumpkin beer; it’s the unveiling of a true treasure from our beer cellar, a gem that has been patiently waiting for its moment in the spotlight—the 2017 Southern Tier Pumking beer, a rum barrel-aged masterpiece.
A Symphony of Flavors: As the golden liquid flows from the tap, it carries with it the essence of autumn nights and the anticipation of warmth. The tasting notes read like a sonnet dedicated to the season—malty sweetness wrapped in the embrace of a rich rum barrel. With every sip, vibrant notes of vanilla, cloves, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg dance on the palate. Imagine indulging in a luscious pumpkin puree, its sweetness melding seamlessly with the heartwarming spices of a freshly baked pie. Cinnamon takes the lead, accompanied by the gentle undertones of nutmeg, vanilla, and a subtle hint of oak and caramel rum from the aging process. It’s not just a beer; it’s a sensory experience, a nostalgic journey through the flavors of fall.
The Art of Vintage Beers: Some things, like fine wine and vintage beers, only get better with time. The 2017 Pumking, carefully stored and aged, has blossomed into a complexity of flavors that captivates the senses. Each year has added a layer of intricacy, making this brew a testament to the artistry of aging. It's not merely a beverage; it's a testament to the passage of time, a reminder that some things are worth the wait.

A Toast to Memories: As the scent of fallen leaves fills the air and the essence of pumpkin spices drifts from every corner, we raise our glasses to the enchantment of the season and the timeless allure of a well-aged beer. With each sip, we are making memories, one sip at a time. Here's to the golden hues of autumn, the crackling warmth of bonfires, and the camaraderie shared over a pint of perfectly aged Pumking. Here's to celebrating the art of patience, the richness of flavors, and the joy of savoring life's exquisite moments.
