The story starts in 2010 when Dick Cantwell walked into our San Francisco pub. Weíd 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.

12oz. can poured into my Elysian Night Owl tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small whit head that faded quickly and leaves light lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, banana, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a hint of pumpkin. You really have to swirl the glass to get it though. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a little bubble gum there as well and the pumpkin is more noticeable as it warms but still hardly there. Mouthfeel is silky, creamy and chewy with awesome carbonation and a semi dry finish. I really enjoyed this beer. Its pretty awesome that they mixed pumpkin and spices into a tripel. Its a little unbalanced but it was still pretty awesome. Could have used more pumpkin and lighten up on the cloves. Nice collaboration.

Bright gold transparent gold color with small white head and little lacing. Aroma is all pumpkin- itís huge! Flavor is pretty good combination of spicy, grassy, belgian yeasts and pumpkin. A little sweet and malty. Good style to choose for a pumpkin beer- very flavorful

Can. Pours a slightly hazy, pale gold, the color of toasted wheat so-so head and retention. Nose is light caramel, pumpkin, tarragon, band aids. Mouth is medium bodied, light sweetness, pleasantly pumpkiny with some malt, spices and a custard quality. Finishes with some toasted bread. Nice Autumn brew.

Itís got everything you want in a Tripel, plus the pumpkin and spice hints work real well.

can. Amber with one finger head. Sweet with pumpkin and belgian spicing. Sounds weirder than the end result, which actually worked quite nicely.

rollinsr (504) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - APR 6, 2015
Pours light golden with a finger of white head. Aroma is light with sweet effervescent citrus character with hints of pineapple, clove, vanilla, and banana. Flavor is similar but with more of a doughiness overlaying the alcohol flavors. This is a nice and aggressive tripel.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a one finger fizzy white had that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty interesting, a mix of pumpkin, fruity esters, herbal notes, light alcohol, and some light yeastiness. The flavor is more Tripel than it is a pumpkin beer, but the pumpkin is certainly there. I like that itís a pumpkin beer that doesnít include the usual nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice. The herbal note is quite strong though, balancing the sweetness from the malt and working with the fruitiness really well. Well hidden alcohol. Medium bodied and a bit chewy with soft fizzy carbonation. Really a nice take on the Tripel style, which I typically donít love all that much. Really enjoyable.

To me this seemed more like a strong lager than a pumpkin tripel plus herbs (which is an interesting idea btw). There was some light molasses sweetness and wheat. The finish warms and tingles the palate nicely. Not bad, but I preferred the porter that this came packaged with.

Can thanks to Dmac. Pours a somewhat clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is light pumpkin, fruity Belgian yest, some pumpkin/yeasty spicy fruit notes. Taste is complex, fruity yeast, mild pumpkin spices, pumpkin seed, and some mild sweetness. This is a very solid and unique pumpkin.
