This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a light hazy orange color with a slim one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Ample amount of light lacing glosses around the glass. The smell had a light spiced apple/maybe ginger and super light pumpkin spice in a sticky cinnamon sort of way. The taste was mainly the same with a sticky sweet pumpkin to apple aftertaste with a sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. It was somewhat sessionable. There’s a decent sticky sweet to spicy finish that’s nice. Overall, I say this was a good tripel dedicated to Autumn. Yeah, I would bang this again.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A hazy light golden straw. Thin off white head that goes to a lacing.

Smell: A light scent of yeast and pumpkin.

Taste: Pumpkin is much more prominent than smell. Some sweetness and ginger.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and a lot of carbonatioin.

Overall: An average beer overall. I did not like it at first, but it is growing on me. A little light on the flavor. I would have it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A hazy orange color, with a half finger head of white foam.
Smells of clove, vanilla, pumpkin, brown sugar, and squash.
Taste follows suit, pumpkin/banana flavor up front, wanes as it sits in the mouth.
Mouthfeel is moderately thick and cloying, low carbonation.
Overall, interesting but not necessarily my taste.

Aroma is very spicy and mild vegetables. The flavor is spices/cloves, Belgian yeast, slight tropical fruit/citrus, white bread/malts and a mix of mild heat, alcohol and tart/sour in the finish.

Poured into a small narrow glass: color is straw gold, a little dense looking; head bubbles are small and dense with some light lacing on the glass.

Smell is primarily a subtle blend of pumpkin spice, clove is prominent with some ginger; there is a touch of banana and maybe clove from the yeast aromas.

Taste is similar to the aroma with the not overpowering pumpkin spice in the forefront with clove and ginger, then some light yeast off flavors with banana most notable; the malt profile compliments these subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel is pleasant, a balance of dry and sweet with the spicy dryness cleaning up the malt and fermentation sweetness.

Overall, since this brew is located in a the tripel style it has been reviewed as such, but i could see this leaning more towards the pumpkin ale style and getting better recognition.

Light copper with a fluffy white head

Smells like pumpkin spice, yeast, hint of fruitiness

Follows the nose with some citrusy notes.

Crisp with moderate carbonation.

Unique take on a trippel that beats most pumpkin beers.

here's my2 cent review(for the baltic porter)....

L-nce dark dark red caramel thing
S-smells like bong water and ghanja mix and i am not kidding (hopefully has the same effect)
T-doesnt taste like a trippel.. spicy malty didn't taste any pumpkin..it's growing on me some anyway
F-Mouth feel is thick and smooth it really shines here
O-not sure if i love it or hate it but it is unique and worth a try if you like adjunct beers

the above review is for the baltic porter he said....i got them mixed up...so sue me even though i am apologizing profusely.
