4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Halloween! It’s still Halloween, dammit. 12 oz can from the He Said He Said four pack. Aroma is doughy, pie spices--most notably clove, anise. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium white head with good retention. Taste is nice and tripely with pie spices coming through pretty strong. Spicy hop notes come through slightly in the finish after it warms up quite a bit. Since I like tripels a lot more than I like Baltic porters, this beer is much better to me than its partner in this 4-pack. Tastes like a spiced-up tripel with little to no pumpkin influence, much like Midnight Sun Trickster.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can form the cube 4 pack. Can dated 7/31/2014 stamped on bottom. Mostly clear copper color with nearly no head. Aroma is rather odd. Indeed Belgian yeast with a nice character of gourd, light nutmeg.
For me the Belgian yeast and pumpkin clash a bit. Spicy yeast, bready malt base, notes of honey. Mild bitterness from spices with a creamy texture that becomes dry. After about 6 oz. it got very cloying.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of raw pumpkin, squash, green spices, kind of curry-like, doughy. Slightly hazy orange-gold with a mostly lasting fluffy white head. Some sweetness balanced pretty well with spice flavors. Full bodied, sticky but pretty smooth, earthy spicy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Burnt sugar with hints of spice. Appearance: Clear gold with rich white head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Taste: Light sweetness balanced by a medium sourness. Palate: Light body, soft carbonation, slick texture, long sour finish. Overall: A bit too sour for my taste. A good idea that was poorly executed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a slightly hazy yellow color with a very thin white head. Aroma has lots of banana and some lemon, almost like a hefeweizen. Taste is crisp and fruity at first with some cheesy notes and hay. Finish is a little too sweet with not enough to balance it out. Overall it is very flavorful, but the banana is a little strange with not enough hops

1 year old can. Shared at my Summer Plunder Tasting..Belgian tripel - a light golden copper with a solid spices & pumpkin aroma. The body is thin and a bit watery. The taste is bitter earthy spices and light pumpkin. Quite nicely balanced spice wise.

Great balance, pours golden with good head and lacing. Some light floral Belgian. Ok. Not much of the pumpkin, thankfully. Palate a little watery. Tap at Snallygaster.
