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.

(tap) clear bright yellow amber colour with a small white head; aroma starts floral, vegetable, then lilies; sweet flavour developing into a long medium bitter finish; interesting

On tap at Martin’s West in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light straw, hay, spicy yeasts. Taste is crisp, biscuity, dry straw... Mild flavors and some spice but was expecting more of the galangal and tarragon. Nothing distinct about this one.

stevoj (2292) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Love this blend of pumpkin, nutmeg and normal triple essences. Lots of spice in the aroma. Initial foamy head subsides rapidly. Taste comes alive with lots of butter, coriander, floral notes. Velvety smooth, nice spicy finish.

From a 12 oz can. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Flavors of clove, cinnamon and herbs. Hint of pumpkin.

Excellent american craft trippel. Up there with golden monkey. Crisp, spicy and sufficiently flavorful.

jbrana (464) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2014
I dig this beer, though there isn’t a large amount of pumpkin flavor present... which isn’t necessarily a bad thing in my book. It does have a hint of pumpkin spice flavor which adds a nice little something to the already spicy Belgian yeast. Has a slightly sweet malt body, with a light amount of resiny hop flavor.

LetsGoState (603) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Appearance is medium white head with light, hazy yellow. Aroma is spices. Taste is some alcohol and spice. Overall not a great pumpkin beer or Belgian.

ElCapitan22 (107) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with no head at all and no lacing. Tastes typical of a Belgian beer. Lots of wheat and banana, with a nutty aftertaste. Sadly, not a memorable beer....and it’s a triple.
