Poured from a 750 ml bottle into my Duvel tulip. Bottle says this is a Belgian-style brown ale. BA has it as a pumpkin ale. I'll try to keep both styles in mind. Virtually no lacing.
Appearance: Pours a murky brown-orange, with four fingers of off-white head that slowly, slowly subsides. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Definitely smells like a pumpkin ale. The smell is dominated by pumpkin pie spices. Malt in the background. Good smelling beer.
Taste: Doesn't taste all that much like it smells, which is surprising. The traditional 'Belgian' flavor dominates, backed by some spices. The finish is long and smooth, with almost a vanilla-honey aftertaste. I'm not sure I'm getting the maple syrup, or the yams, or the other flavors advertised, or maybe I'm just tasting what happens when they all blend together. Alcohol is definitely evident, as the beer warms all the way through. Maybe some pumpkin-like flavors come through as the beer warms.
Mouthfeel: Thick, and high carbonation. Nothing to complain about.
Drinkability: Definitely a good beer to sip on on a cold winter night. It smells like a pumpkin ale, but tastes like a Belgian brown. I'm not really sure how to best classify it. My nose says one thing, and my tastebuds say another. It's a beer I definitely would have to be in the mood for, and I might pick up another one for when the weather cools.
