Origin: Brewed at Browar Witnica for KOR GmbH (Langenzersdorf, Austria)
Style: Herb/Spiced Beer
Notes: Das Original Kürbiskernbier. CORE claims to be “The Original Pumpkin Beer,” having found an old pumpkin beer recipe in a tavern brewery in Barvaria, Germany. Unlike their North American counterparts, who brew with the flesh of pumpkins, CORE uses pumpkin seeds.
Maybe I’m a bit dense, but without Google Translate, I would’ve never guessed this is a pumpkin beer by looking at the label. Was I expected to see the outline of a pumpkin seed? Did you see it? Deciphering a beer label shouldn’t be so hard. (Sorry, no more contests here – not going to give away any more beers a la Day 9).
CORE’s tagline – Das Bier in aller Munde – translates to “The beer on everyone’s lips.” Maybe it’s a *slight* exaggeration but there’s no harm in having great pumpkin dreams.
