Brewed with future governor Arlen Harris at Tangletown, a bi-partisan Belgian-style Farmhouse Pumpkin Ale. Not purple, but brewed with pale barley malt, dark wheat malt, Munich and Belgian Aromatic malts, with Amber Belgian Candy Sugar and lavender added to the boil with German Northern Brewer and Czech Saaz hops. Pumpkin in the mash, kettle and fermenter. Starting gravity 15.9(1.064).

Cloudy tang color with an intriguing boquet of pumpkin and lavender. Wonderful mix of lavender and belgian malts. Wanted to buy a growler of this, but supplies are limited. Hope my homebrewed pumpkin saison turns out half as good. THis was definitely the hit of the pumpkin tasting session.

This beer was definitely interresting...but not good. I got little else in the taste and aroma, other than sharp lavender. I think I said it tasted like "floral gasoline". Seems this was an adventure taken a little to far...just didnít work.
