Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 01-26-2003

An organic ale named after Greg Higgins of Higgins restaurant in downtown Portland. Greg is brewed without hops and makes use of the kambocha (green pumpkin) squash for about one-third of the total sugars, lending it a distinctly squashy, pumpkin taste. This beer is available on draft at Higgins, at the brewery and occasionally elsewhere in the Portland area.

Pours muddy brownish with two finger big bubbly chalk white head, quick dissipation. Smell is squash, sweeter veggie, a bit earthy. Taste is bland, squash and veggies, sort of like a light bodied abbey ale, but sweet. Thin mouthfeel. Interesting and drinkable, but I don’t really want to try it again.

one of the more if not the most unique of the local beers I had in Oregon this past April

A: like a Wit infused with almond milk, notably dense-cloudy.... strange (maybe imaginary) pearly-olive-green reflection/highlight (or is it green-gold)... wasn't much head to start, basically looks still thereafter

S: first off, yogurt-y-doughy.... obviously, no hops (if you've read the literature).... the essence of a farming field after the harvest

T: silky, doughy - mild fruit - light gourd stem - clean and vinous aftertaste.... not all that beer-like of a flavor (a thick Wit - Hitachino White - the closest comparison?)

M: more like lightly-meaty coconut milk - the opposite of clean or crisp.... mild showing of carbonation starting in the middle

O: odd, yet moreish creation - i'm really into these alternative ingredients -there's enough IPAs and Imperial stouts out there, jeez.... I'll be able to instantly recall the taste of this one for a long while

On tap at Higgins last night. What a fantastic food experience.

A mildly hazy yellow-orange with a thin, white head that falls off leaving no lacing, this looks decent. The nose is delicate, having a blend of squash sweetness and flavor (the way it is expressed is unique), a doughy, grainy malt character along with a little earth. The palate opens a little bitter with a mild sweetness from the squash, a moderate earthy, squash flavor, a nice, mellow, grainy sweetness and some honey. Drying on the finish, with a touch of honey and pumpkin, this is very nice. Recommended.
