When it comes to Pumpkin Beers, they boggle my mind.
I really want to love them, but I rarely find the right kind.
When I saw Fegley’s Devious, my curiosity was piqued,
Cause their Insidious was delicious, and oh such a treat!
When I filled up my glass, the color was ruby red,
And the bubbles rose quickly to form a fluffy white head.
The foam didn’t last, and left very little lacing,
And when I took that first sniff, the aromas were bracing.
Strong nutmeg and clove are all that I smelled,
So I lifted the glass and said, “Oh what the hell!”.
It’s boozy at first, with a firm alcohol bite,
Then the spices kick in and are quite a delight.
When you get to the middle, those spices subside,
But as you approach the finish, they again start to rise.
While it’s good overall, I have trouble with the ending.
It leaves a weird aftertaste, so this beer needs some mending.
Take away that small quibble, and Fegley’s Devious was quite good.
Yet another fine Pumpkin Beer that can stay in my hood.
