Gushed a bit upon opening, pours a hazed & very effervescent amber with 3 fingers of pearl white head. Stays hazed, nice lacing 7 head retention

S: Tartness, orange peel, & grapefruit, coriander

T: Coriander, white pepper, grapefruit, tartness, a touch of nutmeg & squashyness up front, plus dryness & lovely tartnesss. Tartness, a touch of coriander/all-spice as this warms, plus grapefruit, so drinkable& just a kiss of funk. Finishes tart with grapefruit & coriander, plus oaky dryness

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, smooths out to awesomeness

Not getting a ton of Pumpkin or cacao, but a damn fine beer, giving it a .5 deduction for not screaming pumpkin to me, but miles better than most of this ilk. Super refreshing, seems more like a Summer beer, but maybe just a bit past it's prime. I'm results driven & I like/love this!

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/29/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky off white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, green apple, lemon zest, pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, floral, grass, herbal, oak, caramel, toast, light tart funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin, yeast, malt, and spice notes; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, pear, green apple, lemon zest, clove, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, toast, light cocoa, herbal, floral, grass, oak, light tart funk, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, green apple, lemon zest, pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, pepper, nutmeg, caramel, toast, herbal, floral, light cocoa, oak, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of of malt, pumpkin, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent Belgian pumpkin ale style. All around great balance and complexity of malt, pumpkin, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
