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.

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

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!
