Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Bright amber colour. A bit strange - not distinctively gourdy, but at least a clean, crisp, moderately malty amber ale with toasty/caramelly accent. Hrm.

argo0 (11329) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 (2003): Sweet herbal aroma, with some candy sugar/bubblegum. Taste is sweet, light Tripelesque, herbal and mint. Different squash from last year, with a better taste. (2002): Cloudy golden in appearance, with a mild fruity aroma. I'd never guess the squash without being told -- the flavor is very fruity and mild, with hint of alcohol. No noticeable bitterness.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2010
A lightly hazed amber orange ale with a thin white head. In aroma, pleasant fruity malt with caramel and some nice madera tones. In mouth, a good caramel and fruity malt, a bit maderized, very smooth, no hops, as promised, but good. On tap at Hair of the Dog, Sept. 4, 2010.

Poured a medium orange color with a very small sized heat. Aromas of yeast, earthy, citrus, spices, and squash. Tastes of spices, squash, and caramel. There was definitely squash in there that made this one different and interesting.

Growler courtesy of fishingnet. It pours coppery gold with tiny white head. The aroma is modest in strength with spices, sweetness and smooth chewy squash like veggies. The taste is sweet up front with maltiness then moving into sugary-ness and squash goodness. The malts grow a bit into the finish. Nice stuff. It seems a tad on the sweet side overall.
