look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A-Pours a clear, glowing orange color. Well formed head. Most Tripels have bigger heads.

S-Pumpkin is noticeable. Belgian yeastiness. Fall spice as well as Belgian spice. Some light crackery notes.

T-The flavor is quite pleasant. Belgian yeast and pumpkin muffin. Spicy and juicy. Almost like pumpkin infused apple cider.

M-Booze hidden well. Pretty drinkable. Feel has some depth but it's not super full.

O/D-Really surprised to find that I like the Tripel He Said more than the Porter He Said. It's pretty neat. The pumpkin works surprisingly well with the Tripel style.

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.

12oz can with a freshness date on the bottom.

This beer smells like pumpkin pie ... seriously. No idea what the floaties were but I did not pay them any attention and kept on sipping, perhaps some proteins settling out? This beer is kickin with a lot of complexities to deal with, yet another great pumpkin ale to come out ... good timing as I had just about given up on the style.

LOOK: Sticky and sudsy, clear but turbid ... odd

SMELL: Spiced pumpkin puree, floral alcohol, peppery, faint honey

TASTE: Medium body, very smooth, stone fruit, dry maltiness, stodgy pumpkin, pie spice, peppery alcohol, mild phenols, leafy hop, clean alcoholic twang, lingering spicy finish, lands dry

Canned on 9/9/13. 12oz can poured into a tulip.

Lifts a large eggshell head, that stays nicely. Slowly goes to to thick layer of gauzy meringue, leaving thick swathes of lacing. All riding on top of a heavily hazed dull apricot liquid below.

Nose is a mix of mild holiday spicing, sweet fruit juice as well as a hint of Belgian yeast. A lot going on...

The complexity of the nose is exceeded by the taste. More holiday spice, more sweet fruit juice, and again more notes characteristic of a "normal" tripel. This take on the style is not "normal"
Unfortunately the sweet notes are near cloying and fairly off putting for me.

Ambitious take on the classic, that misses the mark...one and done here fo sho

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, cloudy, orange-brown in color, moderate carbonation

Smell: pumpkin, cinnamon, and light Belgian spices

Taste: pumpkin, cinnamon, lemon, Belgian spices, and tropical fruit

Mouthfeel: sweet, medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: I appreciate the different take on the style. The pumpkin is more present at the beginning and meshes well with the tripel flavors. Creative..I would get this again.

3.25/5  rDev -14.2%

Deep golden yellow color in the body I expect a bit of haze in a tripel, this one has some herbal vegetal pumpkin earthiness off the bat. Fine creamy head with nice patterns of lace. Aroma has a bubblegum note,, with honey coated biscuit malt, and spice with pumpmkin flesh. Flavor a bit too sweet and cloying for me. Spices although subtle just don't mesh well with this 8.2% abv Belgian style tripel, comes off cloying after the first few sips. I can feel the alcohol in this one, way more well hidden booze notes in the dark baltic porter, the tripel seems a bit fusel. Mouthfeel doesn't burn with alcohol but the warmth hits me, carbonation is not effervescent enough spices linger and don't belong in this style but each sip stays on the palate. Overall, I want a straight up tripel but pumpkins and spice sell in this season!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer takes some time to settle, lots of roiling activity continuing well after the pour is finished. It finally settles a clear gold-orange with what appear to be some yeasty floaties swimming around. The head is creamy and tight, just slightly tinted, and drops slowly to a solid foam. Lacing consists mostly of patching mixed with spotting.
With the spicing, some sweet and mostly the less sweet kitchen variety, and the pumpkin flesh, it does bear a resemblance to pumpkin pie. Some of the spicing and the earthier tones may be the Belgian yeast and, while there's a subtle sweetness, there's not as much as the style can give. That's not a bad thing, and it works for this beer. Lots of peppery spiciness and floral hops lend complexity to its overall character.
There's a bit more fruitiness in the middle of this beer, and the alcohol's a bit hotter. It's still mildly sweet and very spicy, lots of pepper biting, earthy and, with the leafy hops, leaning much dryer into the finish. It gets quite a bit sweeter as it goes, downright juicy at one point. Pumpkin flesh works pretty well in the midst of it all, though not as well as the nose altogether.
The medium body offers a nice, creamy smoothness off a light crispness. The overall effect is clean, even as it dries out into the finish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a gorgeous, hazy golden yellow with a half of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that almost completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very yeasty, floral and fruity, as a triple should. Lots of pumpkin and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar, which complement the typical triple aromas of banana and clove.

Taste: Excellent! Backbone is all Belgian triple, yeasty with notes of banana, clove and freshly baked sourdough bread. Then there’s the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, all-spice, which beautifully complement the typical triple flavors. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 8.2%, there is a pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: This is a damn good triple! I really enjoy the addition of the pumpkin beer flavors to the typical triple flavors. I’m certainly getting this again.

21st Amendment Brewery, "He Said" Tripel
12 oz. can, "canned on 09/09/13 1545"

Nice appearance. Hazy gold-orange body beneath a full head of frothy white foam. As the head dies down it leaves streaks and spots of lace about the glass, and the head becomes creamy.

Aroma is spicy but not overdone. It's somewhat non-descript to a certain extent, kind of like all-spice, but then it makes me think of Indian food, maybe cardamom & coriander. Some yeasty phenolics (or is that clove?). Some hops that are floral/herbal, and perhaps a bit spicy - but who can tell what's hops and what's spice?

In the mouth it's medium-full and crisp, gently bristling with carbonation and alcohol bite.

The flavor is quite solid. I didn't find "pumpkin" in the aroma, but I find a quick flicker of pumpkin-pie right up front. That doesn't last as it's quite bold. It's spicy followed by a kick of alcohol with a white pepper bite, then soft candyish malt, and then minty, and spicy again in the finish. I keep thinking coriander but then I know that's not right. Interesting. The very dry, spicy finish lingers for minutes. Solidly bitter as well.

Overall I'm quite impressed. I like the boldness of it, and the brash slap of alcohol. The spice is interesting, and I like the way that it's dotted with short notes of sweetness, and finally mint. Quite unique.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy golden color with not quite one finger of head that settled to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.

Nothing really surprising about the aroma. I get some Belgian esters and the pale malt. The beer has to warm up a lot in order for the spices to come through. Then I pick up some nutmeg.

Thankfully not overly adulterated by the spices as remarkable the Belgian qualities work with the pumpkin spice. The brewer struck a nice balance. Nice fruity esters comes out with vinous qualities. The spices are mild with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Good malt base brings the flavors together.

The can says the beer is brewed with pumpkin, and thankfully this beer does not exhibit the horrible texture that pumpkin beers posses. Smooth, non-clingy, and very nicely carbonated. Robust and well rounded.

I may finally be warming up to these pumpkin spice beers. Keep the actual pumpkin to a minimum, and I am generally happy.

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

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of fruits, pumpkin, some spices. Taste is fruity, Belgian yeast up front, some pumpkin and spices later. A bit unusual, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique and pretty good beer.

12 ounce can, canned on 09/09/13. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy dark gold color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like pumpkin, bready malt, cloves, Belgian yeast, and some peppery spice. It tastes like pumpkin, pumpkin spices, peppery spice, Belgian yeast, candy sugar, and some mint and bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. To me it's more of a pumpkin ale than a tripel, but I'm not complaining. I liked this brew, definitely worth a try especially if you like pumpkin beers.

Excited to try this Pumpkin Ale meets Tripel... This is either going to be a hit or miss...

A - Just shy of two finger's worth of slightly late to develop crisp fluffy off-white colored head... Decent retention gives why to a full layer of lush delicate lacing... The color is a mix of pale amber and medium gold... There is a subtle haziness... A moderate bit of carbonation - some streaks are sluggish and some are rapid... A slight bit of lacing clings to the sides of the glass...

S - Belgian yeast is at the forefront of the nose... Right below the surface is a layer of crisp spiciness... White pepper... Sage... The pumpkin lingers beneath the surface, but it becomes more evident as it warms... It's smells like fresh pumpkin guts... There are some additional fruit tones in the form of apple and pears... There are light also some bready malt undertones as well...

T - The tastes and flavors materialize in a very similar manner to the nose... The Belgian yeast and traditional Tripel spice notes are the first the great the palate... Next some the fruits and pumpkin... Next some an additional layer of malts... Then a slight hop bite emerges on the finish...

M - Medium bodied... Strong prickly carbonation... There is a sturdy bite with each and every sip... Exceedingly crisp... The finish is a bit dry...

D - Definitely much more of a Tripel than a Pumpkin Ale... The pumpkin notes are uber subtle... If I didn't now they were present, I would have a hard time actually detecting them... With all that being said it's a solid and enjoyable beer, but not quite what I was expecting... Not sure I would rank this high in terms of either Tripels or Pumpkin Ales, but for those seeking out unique offerings this one may fit the bill...

A Belgian-style Tripel brewed with pumpkin and spices.

Appearance: A slightly green yellow that appears faintly orange down the center of the glass. Starts with a little over a finger of head, but fades down to a thin line.

Smell: Light, but creamy pumpkin scent. A little nutmeg.

Taste/Mouthfeel: The taste is not so good. Sorta like I would imagine the shell tastes like. A bit bitter, with with a sickly sweet back note. A bit of acidic burn feeling as it sits on the tongue and a bit of salivation under the tip of the tongue seem to indicate acidity, but I don't taste any.

Hmm. I had some hopes for this one. Hopefully the Baltic Porter won't disappoint like this one did...

Drank from a pint glass. Comes in a 12 oz. can

A: Pours a hazy gold with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy ring with decent lacing.

S: A mix of Belgian and pumpkin spices with candy sugar and flora lavender notes following. There are some sweet bread and light fruit notes bringing up the finish.

T: Belgian and pumpkin spices are strong here with slightly bitter yeast flavors following. There are some subtle notes of candy sugar and fruits, but it's mostly spice and yeast.

M: Medium-light body with mid-high carbonation, this beer is fairly light and crisp except for the lingering bitterness.

O: A solid beer, overall. The mix of pumpkin ale and tripel works alright, though I wish there were a bit more depth in the flavor and less bitterness.

Poured from the can into a tulip glass.

Pretty decent looking brew, with a brass golden yellow if a little hazy body. Nice middle column of carbonation rises continuously. Head is a soapy but a bit fluffy white as well, slowly settles giving a creamy top. Solid looking tripel.

Pumpkin spices as advertised, lots of clove and nutmeg sensations. But not much pumpkin aroma which is great for me. A bit of a slight sharp soapy phenolic hit as well.

Decent on the palate but a very jarring sharp alcohol hit. Light bodied with a sort of cola flat carbonation but the palate fills nicely and coats evenly. Somewhat juicy fruit but a stinging dry clove action. Hints of burnt alcohol and nearly fussel like finish, but some candi sugar sweetness really takes the edge off and makes it softer.

Overall quite nice, and I like the fact it's not very pumpkin forward, does feel like a spiced tripel. Good job.

$2.50 for the can.. pours with a surprisingly short lasting off white head atop a fairly clear light orange brew.. decent lacing.

A weird mesh (mess) of spices.. something that isn't in all pumpkin beers though... I would guess some ginger and perhaps cardamom. anise?? Odd and the yeasty phenols and much lesser esters are present, but this is a trainwreck IMO.. Just don't dig it.

The body and carbonation are much more in line with a standard Tripel.

Just don't care for it... mostly a drain-pour.

3.75/5  rDev -1.1%

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.

Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a fine two finger white head with decent retention and lots of lacing. Aroma dominated by pumpkin, clove and allspice, a hint of nutmeg and Belgian yeast. Flavor is pumpkin; nearly pumpkin pie filling in character with Belgian yeast and a combination of pie spicing (clove, cinnamon, light nutmeg) and classic tripel cardamom; nicely balanced. Medium bodied with light creaminess, satisfying. A well melded pumpkin ale that retains tripel character while presenting the pumpkin pie character nicely. Spicing is deftly handled. I either really love or hate pumpkin beers and it really hinges on authentic pumpkin flavor and a light, but distinct use of holiday spicing. This one scores on both fronts. A really enjoyable pumpkin beer and an unusual style for pumpkin that I will put into my fall rotation if it is made again.

Picked up a 4 pack from Eddie's Drive In Liquors in Rockridge, the first of two Tripels to be reviewed this fine Thursday night. Bonus points for having tasteful packaging & artwork, as well as for releasing a 4 pack with two very unique beers.

A: Poured from a can into a Duvel glass, the beer is a deep & hazy orange golden color with about a half inch of dense foam.

S: Strong belgian yeast scent with more pumpkin than you might expect (in a good way). Also banana, cloves, raisins, and of course pumpkin pie! Possibly the best part of this beer - a great smell that truly evokes the spirit of the season.

T: Slight hop bite and a deep, rich caramel sweetness that compliments the pumpkin flavor nicely. Slightly dry finish & wine-like aftertaste. As other reviewers have noted, the pumpkin pairs surprisingly well with the typical tripel flavors.

M: plenty of carbonation, I would prefer a bit less but it helps to lighten the beer and make it really easy to drink.

O: Honestly this was much better than I was expecting from a pumpkin tripel, and definitely something I'd look to purchase again! It's pretty competitive with Dogfish Head's Punkin Ale for my favorite pumpkin beer, though since they're different styles it's difficult to compare. Anyway, you should totally check this beer out if you get the chance.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Bottom of can says Canned On: 09/09/13.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains very well before eventually becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick bubbly ring behind.

S- Aroma consists of pumpkin-related spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. A bit glassy-smelling with a hint of Belgian yeast that would be more complementary if the spices were toned down a bit. A bit boozy too.

T- Flavor is much better as the Belgian yeast shows itself much more and the spices are, as requested, more toned down. Not very sweet either which can be a big fault in some pumpkin beers. The yeast brings around some peppery phenols which work well with the spices. Notes of clove, chai and more nutmeg.

M- There's a slight milkiness, medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- There's something off-putting about the aroma but the rest of the beer works well. I like it much better than the Pumpkin Baltic Porter that makes up the other half of the 4-pack.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for all the He Said She Said bull$#!t

Consumed 11/27/13

Appearance: Pours surprisingly clear, dark gold with a lot of orange - medium sized, fluffy, off-white head - fades to a small, nearly solid cap - nice webs of lacing - doesn't exactly look like a stellar Tripel, but lumping into the Tripel category may not make the most sense here

Smell: Bubblegum, Band-Aids, and pumpkin spice - the Belgian yeast strain here is rather large and in charge - lots of sweet bubblegum, bananas, Band-Aids (big phenols), pepper, and clove - pumpkin pie spices are also rather prominent, with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger - in a word, spicy - some raw pumpkin flesh as well - some pale malts, undercooked pumpkin bread, and some easily detectable booze

Taste: Kind of like a liquid, spicy, banana-pumpkin bread - big yeast and pumpkin pie spices - Belgian yeast weirdness including bubblegum, banana, pepper, and clove - more clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and something almost coriander-like - pale malts and light bread - not much pumpkin flavor in the taste, just the spices - tastes boozier than 8.2%

Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of medium, nice carbonation, smooth, finishes with some booze and some Belgian yeast

Overall: Tripel + pumpkin + great brewery + great brewery = meh?

This is not a great Tripel. It's not a great pumpkin beer, either. But it's better than the sum of its parts. At the very least, it's consistently interesting, and worth a try.

A: The beer is relatively clear golden yellow in color but has lots of particulates floating in suspension and a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense beige head that quickly died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas that somewhat resemble ginger are present in the nose, which I presume are from the galangal. Notes of pumpkins also become perceptible as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of ginger along with stronger notes of pumpkins, Belgian yeast, candi sugars and spices. Little if any alcohol is noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be a rather nice blend between a Tripel and a Pumpkin Ale. It's a nice treat for the fall season if you like pumpkins but want a beer that's a little different compared to the rest.

12oz can from Total Wine (Kennesaw, GA ). 9.99/ 4 pack. Canned 9/9/13. Served in a Pumpking goblet.

Pours hazy near opaque straw yellow with a finger and a half white head. Decent retention and a fair bit of lace.

Pretty straightforward nose of pumpkin pie spice, candy sugar and yeast.

An interesting blend of flavors. Gourd, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, bannana, yeast, pepper and a bit of booze. Nothing stands out as particularly good or bad.

Medium bodied with fairly sharp carbonation. Semi bitter aftertaste with pie spice and more yeast.

Not bad and perhaps a smidge better than the Baltic Porter but lackluster. I appreciate the effort to brew something different but this just didn't quite deliver.
