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!

12oz can into a goblet.

Pours a nearly clear light gold with a half finger white head that fades away to some thin lacing fairly quickly. Not really any lacing at all. Unimpressive for a tripel.

Aroma has loads of Belgian yeasty esters mixed with some unusual spices although I wouldn't exactly call it pumpkin. Some grass and fruit but the Belgian character sticks out more than anything.

The flavor very closely follows the aroma with Belgian yeast dominating and going heavy on the banana and clove. Nice shot of grassy hops along with just a light touch of nutmeg and cinnamon but it is kind of hard to tell they are there. Very light breadiness in the background leading to a somewhat sweet finish and some lingering bitterness.

Overall, I like the baltic porter better than this one. There just isn't much in the way of pumpkin character here and it ends up being more like a messy tripel. Still, it is a good beer but not really to style.

Okay, well, I got this for free from a friend. Yeah, somewhat of a close friend.
This was poured into a borrowed chalice.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden amber to orange/ brown colored body with a fairly decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding to a nothing.
There was a nice speckled /glossy citrus sweet to orange/clementine slightly spicy goodness just glossing over my nose in a nice sort of way.
The taste took those flavors and added a semi - light pumpkin spice to sticky sweet glossy weird but okay nice yet weird yeasty maybe breadiness.
The mouthfeel was about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was semi - sweet and smooth.
Overall, I say this was pretty good as I know I would have it again, but pumpkin, well I didn't really get it.
