A: Autumnal falling leaf, sun burnt orange, nearly red at times. Moderate white head.

S: Belgian yeast contributes a pure clove smell. Very nice application. Also cinnamon, but then there's that bubblegum, which seems out of place. Pumpkin and squash florals are discernible. Pretty savory and slightly sweet.

M: Med body and chewy. Mod to high carb

T: Overall Belgian fruit and yeast flavor of bubblegum is too pronounced though the clove matches well. Decent bitterness level coincides with savory spicing, but mainly I get a rather neutral and earthy fruitiness throughout. Some roasted vegetal on the end. Light and cracker like malt.

A pumpkin/squash beer in October? One of my favorite seasonal beers and I was looking forward to it again this year. Fresh local roasted pumpkin/squash and hops makes a good combination

A - This beer pours a nice amber with good clarity. Another clean looking beer with nice lacing.
S - Nice light Belgian aroma with hints of spice and squash/pumpkin.
T - Good taste which has a good balance between malt and spice.
M - Smooth and balanced with medium body. Very drinkable and finished easy. It goes down even smoother as it warms up.
O - At 5.6% this beer is definitely drinkable and enjoyable. Not a session beer but definitely a beer you can enjoy Sunday afternoon while watching some Sunday Football. I would recommend checking this beer out before its gone. A lot of hard work went into this beer and its shows. Another well done beer, cant wait to have another.
