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.

Borresteijn (5061) - Amsterdam, - NOV 19, 2012
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear deep amber/orange colour, off-white head. Aroma is not very sweet as expected, pumpkin, butterscotch, some mace, cinnamon, smoked malts. Flavour of smoked malts, light spicy pumpkin, light buttery, light alcohol bitter finish. Lacks body and depth, and if I was told this was a 6% beer I would have believed it.

Erzengel (4454) - 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.

skortila (4665) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has pumpkin, ginger, vergetable. Hazy, orange coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. Loads of particles, so didn’t poor it fully out. The taste is sweet, bit bitter. There are vegetable tones, spice, some caramel maltiness more in the end. Medium bitter finish and relative dry.

Bosskie (473) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
Red golden opaque beer, with a weak head. Lots of sweet banana, touch of caramel, apples, pear. Maybe cherries. Malty bitter sour-sweet, with an underlying alcoholic sweetness.

Betreft de Mashing Pumpkins 2014 3.0. Een goudkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Een verrassende geur van mout en grapefruit en specerijen. In de smaak komen de pompoenen boven, samen met kruidnagel en de grapefruit/citrus. Een bijzondere nasmaak die ik nog niet eerder heb geproefd. Een geslaagde bijzondere combinatie.
