Picked up a bottle at the brewpub. The box said October 2012. It has the newer sticker type label, so I believe it is a new batch.
A - Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a light tan head the moves to the edges and sits in a ring.
S - Cloves, gingerbread, pumpkin, pepper, Belgian yeast.
T - Halloween spices, ginger, clove, peppery, yeasty. A bit muted at this point.
D - Mild carbonation and a light body. Smooth mouthfeel.
O - I thought this one might be a bit old, and it probably was. Still good flavors, but a bit muted.

What can I say? This is obviously my favorite. The taste and feel of this beer is exquisite. I haven't found the perfect pairing for this beer yet (oh, darn, I have to keep trying...) but so far this goes with rustic type sandwiches....pretty much the fare at the brewery.

22oz bottle into Gulden Drakk tulip.
A: Pours a clear iced tea color with a very dense, fluffy, and thick light tan head that took forever to fade into a soft film and fuzzy collar.
S: Earthy Belgian yeast and pumpkin spice dominates the nose with notes of clove, lemon zest and bready pale malt.
T: Bready malt and earthy yeast base is easily noticeable beneath notes of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, pepper and faint lemon and pie crust. The finish is doughy and mildy spicy with notes of vanilla as well, and the aftertaste is lightly bitter and sugary.
M: Medium body, medium mouthfeel, smooth and slick. Easy carbonation is fluffy and drinkable.
O: Definitely a spice lovers beer, but they mix well with the pale malt base. Belgian yeast adds a doughy and unique flavor that works well with everything else. Enjoyable all-around.
