look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Ruddy dark brown color. A little over a finger of creamy/frothy beige head that falls fairly quickly and leaves touches of spotty lacing.
4.5 S: Earthy with a certain dustiness to it, like an actual Belgian brown. Then there are the added components: molasses, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and of course YAMS! Additional spiciness from the Belgian yeast. The Belgian character mingles well with the peculiar adjuncts to make a great smelling brew. Color me impressed.
4.5 T: Again the odd couple flavors mesh really well. The Bruery loves making overly sweet, seemingly underattenuated messes, but this isn't one of them. Yes, it is on the sweet side, but it works well in this. The molasses and the spices instantly stick out. Nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and vanilla in order of descending intensity. The yams offer an interesting alternative flavor to the pumpkin so often used. The earthiness of the Belgian brown that was so evident in the nose gets nearly lost behind the sweet and the spice, though the Belgian yeastiness and resulting spice is perceived. Alcohol is nearly not detectable.
4.0 M: Heavier medium to heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. A bit chewy and a bit flem-inducing from the residual sugars. Otherwise creamy and smooth.
4.5 D: I usually find that everything that the Bruery makes that isn't hard to get sucks (less Saison Rue), but this is a damn good beer. It's definitely one of the better pumpkin ales available despite not actually having any pumpkin. Solid all around.

750ml (1pt 94 fl.oz.) bottle. Tripel Karmeliet Oversized Chalice glass. Pours brown in color, reddish ruby to the light. Headed by beige crown showing fairly good retention. Toasted & caramel malts, figs, dats, ripe orange pulp hues, nutmeg & herbs are displayed on the aroma profile. Toasted & caramelish upfront. Full body. Soft carbonation. Flavor of molasses, maple syrup notes , brown sugar, slight phenolic touch & anice hints are balanced by herbal bitterness in the middle. Sweet no-cloying finish. Gentle warming, no harsh, kind & sugary ABV through the throat. Ripe fruit apricot-like on the aftertaste.
