Cask at Castro’s Lounge. Hazy amber-orange pour. The nose is softly spicy with some clove, vanilla and a distinct pumpkin flavour. Coriander and a little bit of soft spiciness. Medium bodied and I’m not sure the cask really works here. There is a fairly assertive bitterness here that kind of works. Lingering spiciness. Okay.

Bottle from Bierkompass, bought in March 2014. Hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, light funk, fruit and some bread. Similar taste. A realxed and easy to drink one. The body was on the light side and the finish quite dry.

La mia prima PUMPKIN ALE. e nemmeno molto tipica. Infatti trattasi di una birra brassata con zucca e spezie utilizzando il lievito saison!! Questa "farmhouse ale" si presenta di color aranciato con una schiuma Abbondante competta e persistente bianco sporca. Al naso spiccano le spezie utilizzate, con predominanza della cannella, seguita da una nota acidula e secca. In bocca parte con una forte dolcezza (zucca rules) appianata da una bella astringenza e secchezza tipica delle saison. Mi è piaciuta tantissimo!!!!!

Cervesa amb un aroma lleuger, en boca es nota molt el llevat i gust a plàtan, el que no es nota és la carbassa. Cerveza con un aroma ligero, en boca se nota mucho la levadura y sabor a plátano, lo que no se nota es la calabaza.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some light fruits, pumpkin notes, light malts, and some light floral notes. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A cool beer.

A very cloudy golden beer with a poppy white head. The nose is a citrusy yeast and the body is light. The citrus and fruity notes are very pleasant. There is a long linger on the back of the palate. Well done!

De color anaranjado suave, con un consistente espuma blanca de pequeña burbuja que termina dejando encaje. Aroma cítrico en un primer momento pero posteriormente queda escondido por ese aroma especiado de las levaduras belgas que recuerda a campo o crim de caballo. Bien carbonatada y con un cuerpo medio. En boca un poquito ácida y sutilmente especiada. Lo que noto por ningún lado es la calabaza, dejando esto ha un lado me ha parecido un gran saison.

650 mL bottle. Gold with very little head. Spicy saison with a hint of pumpkin. Nice body for the style. Pretty good.

Yeasty aroma, bit of grape and a bit of pumpkin. Pale gold and slightly cloudy. Tastes about how I expected, yeasty summer ale turned into an autumn ale with a bit of pumpkin aftertaste, smart because saison are already spiced. Simple, but not bad.

Scent of yeast, allspice, and fruit. Hazy orange colour. Slight sour front with flavours of berries and cinnamon. Medium body with mild carbonation. Quite a tasty beer.

Pours a light orange hue with a medium sized, slightly off-white head that rapidly settles down and eventually disappears all together. Aromas are a nice blend of typical saison, with Belgian yeast and white pepper notes, blended with light pumpkin, nutmeg cinnamon and allspice. On the palate it is light bodied, and slightly creamy. Tastes lean much more toward saison, than pumpkin ale, with lots of yeast and pepper notes. The pumpkin is very subtle, and probably more on the nose than the tongue. Overall, this one depends on what you thought you were buying. If a saison, then it is delicious and you will be well pleased. If you thought you were getting a pumpkin ale, I can see where you’d be disappointed. I really enjoy Saisons, so I was quite fine with this offering.
