look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Very slight haze on a dark yellow/gold color. Head is bright-white and creamy. Decent retention leaves a small collar and faint wisps of a cap. Moderate carbonation pulls throughout.

Smell: Pumpkin spice bubblegum. Layers of clove and nutmeg with a general pepper spiciness. Some hints of real pumpkin in there. Yeast is potent with a big estery push (see the bubblegum above). A bit sweet with something like allspice or even cardamom. Mostly pale malts with a touch of caramel thrown in for good measure. Candy and pumpkin bread. Canned pumpkin. A hint of hopping, mostly floral/grassy. Slight biscuity note as well. Pumpkin jumps a bit as it warms, but it's definitely Belgian-style first.

Taste: A blend of Belgian and fall spice. Clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, pepper, the gang's all here. Touches of bubbelgum on the finish. Light malt backbone is a bit sweeter than the nose indicated, but it helps. Cardamom. Squashy pumpkin lingers in the back. Canned pumpkin sweetness up front. Some grassy and floral notes. Spice levels are a bit high overall. A hint of buttery pie crust with some fruity esters. Belgian yeast is assertive and only becomes more so as it warms. Spicy pie.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate to slightly above carbonation. Nice crisp snap on a slightly dry finish.

Overall: It's all about the he said she said...

Spice profile completely dominates this beer to the point that it's distracting. A lot of stuff going on with a nice, almost clean finish. It's a good take on the style, but leaves something to be desired in the long run.
