4.21/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles and some floating sediment. About one finger of white head which settles into a thin patch.

Smell: A yeasty, fruity, and earthy Belgian style aroma with big hints of pumpkin, spices, and fruit. Belgian yeast with hints of clove, pepper, coriander, and funk. Big scent of pumpkin along with hints of fall spices. Belgian fruit hints of green apple, banana, pear, and white grape. Sweet hints of Belgian candy sugar. Subtle hints of earthy and grassy hops. A pretty interesting and solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell, a spicy, yeasty, and fruity Belgian style taste with good notes of pumpkin, spices, and fruit esters. Big mix of spices with Belgian yeast hints of clove, pepper, coriander, and funk. Big taste of pumpkin along with some fall spices. Sweet notes of Belgian candy sugar. Good presence of fruit esters with notes of pear, banana, green apple, and white grape. Light backing presence of earthy hops. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. Creamy, juicy, and fairly prickly. Alcohol heat is mild.

Overall: A good twist on a Belgian style Tripel. Good pumpkin flavor that stands out but doesn’t bury the Belgian fruit esters. A nice unique brew.

4.1/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz can, poured into a chalice, canned on 9/9/13

A- pours a clear golden-orange color with a one-finger creamy white head that reduces to a film floating on top, short lace left behind. Some floaties moving around as well.

S- pumpkin pie spice aroma up front with cinnamon, clove and and nutmeg. The base triple provides the banana esters, which mixes wight he pumpkin spicing to provide an aroma of whipped cream and pie crust. This mixture also brings forth aromas of banana pudding. Some spicy Belgian yeast aromas follow, finished with light musty phenols

T- pumpkin spicing is subtle but noticeable up frontal picking up more nutmeg and clove than anything. Following, are sweet malty notes that give the flavor vanilla wafers and graham cracker. Spicy Belgian yeast kicks in with flavors of banana and clove with spicy phenols on the finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a dry, slightly warming finish

O- the pumpkin spiced triple is a style that I hadn't seen before this, but I like it. The pumpkin spices seem to complement the base triple flavors & aromas quite nicely. I'd like to see more of this combo tried in the future

Love this blend of pumpkin, nutmeg and normal triple essences. Lots of spice in the aroma. Initial foamy head subsides rapidly. Taste comes alive with lots of butter, coriander, floral notes. Velvety smooth, nice spicy finish.

Sampled on 10/4/14 at annual pumpkin tasting party, reviewed from notes:

Poured from can into tasting glass

Much like the Baltic Porter that was found in the four pack with this can...a great offering from two solid breweries. A great entry in the triple category. But, again, the addition of pumpkin really didn't contribute much of anything in this brew.

Great effervescent, yeasty floral and fruity aromas and tastes...but where is the pumpkin? ELYSIAN, WHERE IS THE PUMPKIN? Come on, you guys are one of the best when it comes to pumpkin beers. Give me something here.

A great tripel with a lack of pumpkin taste that loses points but still stays strong as being to true to its overall style.
