Cloudy orange and a soapy white head. Sweet bread, some biscuit, and a bit of a butternut squash note. Pumpkin, a hint of spice, some yeast, and maybe some tea. Nice sweet flavor that is mostly bread, biscuit, and toast. A bit of toast. Nice sweet and earthy squash notes, light yeast, and hints of spice.

Oakes (15651) - 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.

On tap at Hair of the Dog, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of squash, candied pineapple. Flavour of squash, spices (like pumpkin), with a very dry palate. Fairly simple and uninteresting. Decent.

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 (12878) - 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.

Ferris (12728) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
Draft - Sweet butterscotch, caramel and some earth. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet, a bit syrupy and a touch of earthy notes. The squash gives a very sweet earthy not that is interesting, but not really tasty.

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.
