A: Deep, rich brown/orange with a fluffy tan/off-white head with good retention. Not much lacing. Distinctive-looking.
S: An interesting blend of the familiar smells of Belgian yeast and dark fruits, with autumnal spices: nutmeg, sweet potatoes, maple, and other spicy accents.
T/M: Sweet and sugary. With each sip, the initial sugary, syrupy sweetness soon gives way to a big sweet potato flavor and plenty of spicy hints of cinnamon and nutmeg and other fall/holiday spices. Real tasty and distinctive, and though it's certainly sweet and betrays lots of sugar and maple syrup, it's never gets to the point where it's overbearing or sickly sweet. Well carbonated, kind of tingly and spiky on the tongue.
O: A really original and delicious autumn/holiday beer. I like it better than most pumpkin ales I've had. In many ways it just tastes like a clever, subtle variation on a big Belgian quad or strong ale, rather than the gimmick it might've been given its unusual ingredients.
