This was a fanatic beer, I got the 4 pack box, and started with this one, the other being the porter version.

I pored it into a glass and it had a little bit of head about 1 1/2 or so.

It had the smell of spice about it

The taste was awesome! Pumpkin, spice, hops, all in the right balance

I wish i could buy this as a 6 pack all the time

One of my new winter favorites

4.69/5  rDev +25.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: A nice golden color

Smell: The aroma is strong in this one, definitely can smell the booze, some pumpkin and spice aromas, seems similar to a saison in aroma.

Retention: Poured about a 1 inch head dissipated within about 30 seconds.

Lacing: a little lacing going on.

Taste: Definitely unusual! Has a great Belgian tripel flavor with this hearty pumpkin backbone that's impossible to ignore. Balanced perfectly not overly sweet like a lot of pumpkin ales it just really hits the mark.

Overall: This is a beer that you really need to try, between the taste / aroma and mouthfeel it's a very unusual and yet pleasing beer.

A 12oz can dated 9-9-13. So created 1 week after I visited Elysian for the 1st time (and hopefully more)

A - Yellow, cloudy with 1 finger of head and some lace. Sediment and lots of bubbly floating to the top. Looks great!

S - Ohh...def a tripel! And pumpkin...lots of it. Smells perfect

T - A perfect mix of triple, belgian yeast, pepper, and pumpkin. Just perfect. Spicy finish

M - Medium bodied, well carbonated.

O - Well, one of the better pumpkin brews I have ever tried combined with a great triple. Does not get much better than this one

Nose: roasty, with just a hint of pumpkin, spices are almost not there.

Palate: fairly dry roastyness, mouthfeel is what I'd expect from a baltic porter. The pumpkin is still just barely there, and hte spices are almost nonexistant

Finish: Now the pumkin shines as the roastyness is soon overshadowed. inds with a nice length, a slightly spiced finish.

Overall: a beautifully balanced beer, the pumpkin appears as just a hint, with the spices even less. This is a beer first with the pumpkin second, which I, for one, strongly appreciate.

Mixed with the Tripel He Said: a far more balanced nose, spices play with pumpkin to a nice backdrop of roast. Mouthfeel is fuller than either alone, and the taste is again more balanced; it's as though one only tastes the best parts of both brews. The finish is shorter, again perfectly balanced, but at the very end becomes almost too vegetal. I'd rate the mix at 4.85, it is so close to the perfect pumpkin beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from the can into a tulip glass.

A-Poured a hazy dark orange color with big fluffy bright white head that left dense webbed lacing.

S- Huge ginger, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, banana, clove, fragrant floral notes, and Belgian yeast notes. Lots of sweetness in the aroma.

T- Big sweet canned pumpkin pie flavor, big spicy belgian yeast notes and clove balanced with some ginger and nutmeg spice notes, nutty almondlike notes, some juicy citrus notes, and some maple and vanilla sweetness on the finish. Finishes with moderate bitterness.

M- Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, slightly sticky, some big alcohol warming, and dry finish.

O- Very complex and interesting beer. The pumpkin pie and Belgian tripel notes actually blend together quite well and complement each other. Lots of sweetness but it is cut by the alcohol and bitterness so it is just right.

The beer comes in a hazy deep pumpkin golden orange with a nice fluffy head.

The aroma has tons of spices of nutmeg, cinnamon along with some fresh pumpkin, a Belgian yeasty breadiness, some phenols.

The flavor follows with a big amount of pumpkin spice and then a bit of pumpkin follows. It wonderfully cleans off with some Belgian clove and tripel character, but mostly stands on itself as a seasonal pumpkin ale.

A fantastic brew.
