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.

Draught at the Doerak, Delft, the Netherlands.
Amber golden color with a small to mid-size white head. Spices, pumpkins and sweet malt in the aroma. So predictable. The flavor is the same... I just can’t dig this. I apologize the International Pumpkin Committee.

Had the 3.0 variant of this beer and I enjoyed it all the way. A wonderful autumn beer and if it where up to me the Pumpkin-ales would be as much of a autmun-beer tradition as the Bock-beer. The pumpkins give this firm and nice textured beer a unique aroma.

I actually liked this one. Pretty balanced beer. The sweetness of the pumpkin combined with the bitterness from the hops and the smoked malts. Intresting enough to drink it again in the future. And above all, something different than usual. Nice!

Bottle at WVHNB. Hazy dark golden with small head. Cinnamon, speculaas, spices, light chili pepper, sweet grains, candy. Medium sweet with light spicy bitter finish and a tart touch. Medium to full bodied. Not my thing.

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.

Kleur is troebel oranje. Schuimkraag is wit maar verdwijnt snel. Aroma is fris/pompoenachtig. Smaak is matig, niet echt mijn ding.

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.
