COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Pours yellow / orange with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is a wonderful balance of Belgian yeast and pumpkins. Very smooth in mouth, medium bodied, with a slightly sweet / spicy nutmeg finish.

monk191 (896) - California, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Overall a nice unique tripel. Pours a bright orange with not much head. Smells of pumpkin, coriander and spices. Taste has some pumpkin upfront, which then gives way to lots of lemon and citrus. A bit of pumpkin comes back in at the finish. Had in the can.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Can:   Straw, a bit of an orange hue, moderate foamy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft doughy/yeasty triple, subtle spices, and thankfully not too heavy.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little phenolic, some rubbing alcohol touches on the finish.   Spices are there, but a bit too muted.   Yeah, soft lingering doughy rubbing alcohol.   Its not caustic, but its there.

Single from greens. Sticky sweet with a little bit of yeast astringency. Dark orange color. Honey and fruit banana and clove toffee. Well rounded and good balance to the yeast.

Gachupines (885) - USA - JUN 5, 2014
Cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Aims is peppery with a bit of pumpkin and herbs. Flavor is pepper, pumpkin and a bit of spice. Could use a touch more body, but otherwise pretty solid. Wife: 3.7

Nice malty flavor and just slightly sweet. Looks beautiful when poured and is very drinkable.

jrodooo5 (998) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 30, 2014
Rustic orange pour w/ a thin white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma had a pleasant pumpkin undertone. The taste is primarily like your standard triple w/ the pumpkin adding a little spice & making this quite memorable. Great flavor throughout making it easy on the palate & an overall very good beer!
