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

Love this blend of pumpkin, nutmeg and normal triple essences. Lots of spice in the aroma. Initial foamy head subsides rapidly. Taste comes alive with lots of butter, coriander, floral notes. Velvety smooth, nice spicy finish.

Sampled on 10/4/14 at annual pumpkin tasting party, reviewed from notes:

Poured from can into tasting glass

Much like the Baltic Porter that was found in the four pack with this can...a great offering from two solid breweries. A great entry in the triple category. But, again, the addition of pumpkin really didn't contribute much of anything in this brew.

Great effervescent, yeasty floral and fruity aromas and tastes...but where is the pumpkin? ELYSIAN, WHERE IS THE PUMPKIN? Come on, you guys are one of the best when it comes to pumpkin beers. Give me something here.

A great tripel with a lack of pumpkin taste that loses points but still stays strong as being to true to its overall style.
