3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
this is the year of the pumpkin wheat beer in ontario it seems. Pours hazy gold with a lacy white head. The aroma is of orange, cinnamon, squash and a bit of banana yeast. The taste is crisp, well-carbonated, and dry, slight maltiness giving way to a slightly unbalanced amount of hops. This doesn’t stand out too much as a pumpkin beer, but it is nice enough as a weissbier.

LCBO bottle. Pours a light yellow with small white bubbly head. Spicy and yeasty nose. Beau signature yeast and mouthfeel, understated pumpkin flavour and a mild spicy finish. Not bad drinkability. More weiss than pumpkin, a changeup for fans of the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 October 31, 2012 - on draught at the Bar Hop Black & Orange Fest. Hazy light gold with a decent white fizzy/creamy white head. Aroma is mostly light hefeweiss and spice, just a hint of pumpkin pie character. Taste is even less pumpkin, more lemon an satsuma peel than anything. Average body, solid carbonation, fruity and spicy in the finish. Really pleasant!

Bottle pours hazy gold and white head, lively aroma of citrus and hop plays into taste, flavor of crisp and citrusy hops and what may be ginger, finish lemon and nice hop dryness. Very original style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours yellowish-brown, very hazy (translucent); the head is cream coloured and mousse-like. The Aroma has notes of: yeast, lemons, and barnyard. The taste is medium bitter; there are notes of: pumpkinseed, coriander, pine, and cracker (finish). The palate is medium-low bodied, low carbonation, and short finish. Overall it has potential, but it’s mediocre in its execution.

Bottle, pours a cloudy yellow, aroma is spicey, of cinnimon and a wheaty spice, the flavour is really quite nice, it has a wheat flavour with a good pumpkin spice finish, enjoyable offering.

650 mL bottle. I like this WAY more than I like most pumpkin beers. I don’t know why they don’t all do them with wheat. The base stands up to the pumpkin and spice so much better. Compliments it, really. This one definitely leans toward the ginger in the mix. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
600 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with modest-sized white head. Aroma is wheat, banana and spices most noticeably ginger. Taste is most predominantly of ginger but some other spices are also present, banana also apparent and some wheaty malt. Pumpkin is not really detectable but it’s a nice spiced beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle and on tap - pours a clouded orangey gold with a rich cap. Lots of natural effervescence. Demure aroma is a mutation of a Hefeweiss and a pumpkin beer - fruitiness just below a musky earthy squash tones and pumpkin spices prevalent. Flavor is also a amalgam of Hefe and pumpkin flavors much like pumpkin pie spritzer - bready, pumpkiny, spicey but with Weiss peppery carbonation and dryness - the finish dries and you get herbal-woody Hallertau bite at the end. A zesty pumpkin beer that is actually refreshing/quenching as well. More great innovative brewing from Beau’s.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bière blonde, à peine voilée, ayant un mince anneau de mousse qui se tient à sa surface. Des odeurs de tarte à la citrouille, de gingembre et d’orange en émanent et ce, pas de façon des plus prononcé. Le goût est très proche d’une boisson gazeuse au gingembre avec cette effervescence. Un arrière-goût poivré et acidulé est perçu. Il y a quelque chose de particulier, serait-ce l’initiative de faire quelque chose de différent? Probablement. Elle est plus intéressante en deScription qu’en dégustation. (Lot 2812 Embouteillée 09-22-12) (395-131012)
