The story starts in 2010 when Dick Cantwell walked into our San Francisco pub. We’d heard about his little pumpkin fest and wanted to get together to brew a pumpkin beer like no other: a Belgian-style Tripel brewed with pumpkin, galangal and terragon. In a dark colored can.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours cloudy golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is punchy caraway and a slightly sweet nutty flavor. Taste is thin light caramel malt with a somewhat abrasive earthy spicy finish. Notes of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and clove. Not at all sweet, quite bitter on the finish. Can’t say I’d suspect this was a Tripel at all. The box, the can, the story - these guys are simply the best in the biz at packaging. Yet again.

Can from Beer, Wine & Co. Body is light amber with thin head. Nose is pumpkin, spices, spunk. Taste is also pumpkin up front with lots of spices, vegetable, malts and funkier notes. A good "go to bed" drink. Pungent and powerful.

Can. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat malt, bread, yeast, peppery spices, melon rind, anise star. Flavor of bready malts, booze, yeast, light fruits, anise star, spices. A pretty tasty canned triple, has a definite Belgian feel to it despite being American brewed. 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a rainy and cloudy Halloween afternoon while writing music. Appearance is a copper gold with a thin white head. Aroma like champagne, light fruit, yeasty. Taste has coriander, I guess there’s a slight pumpkin spice in this one but I’m not really getting it. It’s alright.

From the 12 fl. oz. can that is dated 09/02/15. The pour is pale yellow with a slight haze. Some foam. he aroma has a feint spicy pumpkin character intermixed with bread, dough, cereal, and grass. Body is medium. The taste has a slight herbal and grassy quality but there is a penetrating bitterness that attacks my senses.

Big pumpkin beer fan and this is a fun and unique one. Pour is a apricot in color with a medium cream colored head. Aroma is bold full of yeast and spices. Full flavor beer that has a tangy,spicy,citrus flavor that is just great mix with the pumpkin.

Shared 12 oz. cans poured to small snifters, showing a hazed, gold color, with a modest layer of fluffy, then bubbly, white head foam, and some light, web-like lacing. The nose was orange & lemon peel, with some light, ripened fruit nature, subtle, yeasty phenols, plus other light spice hints as ginger & anise, with some mellowing malt. About medium bodied, with decent expression to the carbonation, the taste added a touch of sweetness, a little warmth, and dry, rind-like bitterness that lingered. Standard, not overly refined Tripel, didn’t find any pumpkin, unless it was the ripe fruit note, but found this rather flavorful in the midst of all the other fall samplings of the evening.
