MY 300th DIFFERENT BREWERY REVIEWED!

Thanks to mklever42 for this beer that shares the same name as my 1st daughter!

Poured from a 750ml. bottle, bottle #929.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with about 2 fingers worth of head that are unfortunately very brief with no much lacing left behind.

Smell: Pumpkin seeds with some of the flesh, fresh spices, herbs. Quite powerful and nice.

Taste: Bit of mint, fresh herbs, hints of brown sugar, some coriander. Pumpkin is discreet but comes out as it nears room temp. A flavorful finish.

Mouthfeel: Very low carbonation takes a little getting used to. Creamy and the body overcomes a bit the almost lack of carbonation.

Overall: Feels delicate and subdued, doesn't smack you in the face. The Saison feel is much more prominent than the pumpkin aspect. Different and enjoyable.

Bottle # 12 out of 395.
Pours out a deep red-brown with an enormous head. The lacing hangs on for a minute and disappears.

Pumpkin, brett, spices and brown sugar lead off the smell. Earth and minerals hit up the background.

The taste starts with grain and pumpkin followed quickly by a burst of slightly sour funk and brown sugar. The spices enter near the middle and lead to a mildly sweet, smooth finish. Didn't notice the alcohol as much as I expected.

Next time I visit C. Springs I'm sure I'll spend some time at Trinity. This was a great cross of saison and pumpkin beer. Liked it quite a bit.

one weird beer right here. almost looking more like a quad than a pumpkin beer, super dark and thick, with a lasting off white head in a goblet from the tap. the nose is unique too, i get as much indian cuisine as i do fall spices. cardamom seems robust, mace is there too, and then the funk. i dont get much squash in the taste either, which is kind of a bummer, was hoping for more there from this fall release. i do get lots of brett and even some lacto weird acidity in the finish, and a saison yeast that seems overwhelmed. i liked this better from the tap than the bottle though, and better this year than in years past, i just want more pumpkin. i think its a far cry from the emmas coffin they used to make, but still a very clever beer that drinks heavy and warms me up even though its lacking on the pumpkin. well spiced and cleverly fermented. overpriced but everything from trinity is.
