4.21/5  rDev +11.7%
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.

A: Pours beautifully into a snifter. Looks like a good tripel should look. Nice head, lacing sticks to the glass. Pretty solid head. Golden elixir vibe entices you to your first sip.

S: Fruity notes waft up, along with some faint bubble gum. Some spice notes are there, but most of the nose is standard for a tripel.

T: I get a whole mix of fruit punch and tutti frutti flavors, inter mingled with the distinct belgian yeast character that one would expect. I'm not getting much pumpkin, but it could just be well-incorporated with the rest of the brew.

O: A good brew, but not quite so unique as I was expecting.

Great pumpkin beer with a little funk. Smooth and different from typical pumpkin beers. Love it.
