ST: Bomber bought from Belmar Liquors in Lakewood, CO. Served around 50 degrees in a rimmed Renegade Brewery Publik House tulip glass.

A: Dark brown body that is very opaque. The carbonation is very creamy looking.

S: Smell is very sweet with an unique subtle spice note of sage. Distinct from other pumpkin beers, which from my experience, have an overwhelming cinnamon smell.

T: A sweet, grassy, creamy, and dessert like beer. The saison esters are drowned by the dark malt flavor that you would usually taste in a porter beer. The pumpkin flavor is worth noting, and blends very well with the dark malt. The alcohol, although high, is not very noticeable. Has a bready finish.

M: the beer was a creamy and viscous feel within the mouth. The bready flavor really activates the salivary gland.

O: A good but not grand saison that has unique twists upon the variety. This could be perfected upon trial and error. Worth seeking.

MY 300th DIFFERENT BREWERY REVIEWED!

Thanks to mklever42 for this beer that shares the same name as my 1st daughter!

Poured from a 750ml. bottle, bottle #929.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with about 2 fingers worth of head that are unfortunately very brief with no much lacing left behind.

Smell: Pumpkin seeds with some of the flesh, fresh spices, herbs. Quite powerful and nice.

Taste: Bit of mint, fresh herbs, hints of brown sugar, some coriander. Pumpkin is discreet but comes out as it nears room temp. A flavorful finish.

Mouthfeel: Very low carbonation takes a little getting used to. Creamy and the body overcomes a bit the almost lack of carbonation.

Overall: Feels delicate and subdued, doesn't smack you in the face. The Saison feel is much more prominent than the pumpkin aspect. Different and enjoyable.

Bottle # 12 out of 395.
Pours out a deep red-brown with an enormous head. The lacing hangs on for a minute and disappears.

Pumpkin, brett, spices and brown sugar lead off the smell. Earth and minerals hit up the background.

The taste starts with grain and pumpkin followed quickly by a burst of slightly sour funk and brown sugar. The spices enter near the middle and lead to a mildly sweet, smooth finish. Didn't notice the alcohol as much as I expected.

Next time I visit C. Springs I'm sure I'll spend some time at Trinity. This was a great cross of saison and pumpkin beer. Liked it quite a bit.
