Poured into a Duvel tulip.
Batch 617, bottled on 9-1-10.
A: A light hazy brow color, with a fluffy white head. Had about 2 fingers worth of head upon the pour, when down to about a half finger after a minute.
S: The aromas are a whole lot of funk, very similar to a saison. I pick up some of the pumpkin aspects, with hints of the spices.
T: Throws you for a bit of a loop here, from the first taste I thought it was a sour ale i opened by accident. Some nice tartiness here. Definitely don't pick up all this pumpkin they speak of. the bite of the spice is definitely there. Not sure if I ever detected the cacao. Kind of reminds me of a sour saison.
M: Nicely carbonated, with a beautiful bite of tart/sourness. As the taste fades, a small dose of spice aftertaste.
O: Where this kinda failed as a pure pumpkin/yam beer, it totally rocked as a sour aile to me. I would definitely pick this up again.
