COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Twee Noord Hollandse speciaalbier brouwers hebben de handen in een geslagen om een bier te brouwen, dat tot nu toe nog niet door een andere Nederlandse brouwer wordt gebrouwen: Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Het bier wordt gebrouwen met pompoenvlees en veel specerijen, die normaal ook gecombineerd worden met pompoengerechten.

GSAP (583) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Smaak is licht rokerig, zoetje, zurig a la shandy en iets van een licht bittertje in nasmaak. Een groente vleugje zit in aroma, rottende bosgrond, leer en wat zurig, alles in een verassend licht fris jasje. Veel bezinksel, bier komt al het flesje uit voordat de opening naar de grond gericht is.

Daanminator (308) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Kleur is troebel oranje. Schuimkraag is wit maar verdwijnt snel. Aroma is fris/pompoenachtig. Smaak is matig, niet echt mijn ding.

jerohen (2076) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Bottled, not sure where i got it from. Hazy orange colored, chunks of yeast, small head. Strong pumpkin nose combined with quite some spices, some hops, little bit yeasty. Bitter and sweet flavor, pumpkin and spices, malts. Pumpkin adds quite some complexity and mouthfeel without making the beer too sweet. Pretty good stuff.

Erzengel (5638) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
2014 Edition. The beer starts fruity-pumpkin intense, hints of spices. Fruit, easy to drink, pumpkin with a nice smooth yeast. Moderate bitter in the aftertaste.
