Nez épicé (muscade, moyen d’anis, léger de cannelle, notes de pain d’épices, de clou de girofle et de gingembre), moyen de malt du genre biscuits sucrés avec des notes de caramel doux ainsi que des notes de houblon herbeux et de citrouille. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et croustillant ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Goût épicé (muscade, moyen de pain d’épices et de clou de girofle, léger de cannelle piquante avec de petites notes d’anis et de gingembre, présentes toute la gorgée) avec un léger-moyen goût de citrouille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de biscuits légèrement sucré avec des notes de pain et de caramel doux puis au fil de la gorgée l’on assiste à un petit pic de pain d’épices qui s’estompe juste avant la finale, légèrement amère et asséchante de houblon herbeux et d’épices.

rederic (2896) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2008
Dark amber color, with a beige head, nice toasty, spicy nose with an intense spiciness of cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and cloves, with a caramelized pumpkin pie aroma follows through on a medium-palate with a toasted, caramelized malt and a good spiced character of christmas spices, like nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread, clove, with a faint malt graininess, some sweet pumpkin flavors, leading towards a malty, spicy, fruity, faint hop bitterness finish.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2007
Bottle at Bieres et Saveurs Chambly. The color is orange with a thin off white head. The taste is a mix of spicies like cloves nutmeg and of pumpkin all mixed in to one, let us not forget also the malt. The aroma is the same but less intense.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2007
Pours a clear dark orange color with a thin white head. Strong aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. The flavor has more focus on the spices (nutmeg and cinnamon) than the pumpkin, it doesn’t have the balance that the aroma has and its definitely less interesting. The body is medium and oily while the carbonation is soft. Not bad but it could have been way better.

Bottle shared with mds, HogTownHarry, blankboy and tupalev - mds’s bottle. Dark copper-amber colour. Fantastic pumpkin pie aroma - clove, nutmeg, allspice - yum! Flavour is malty and spicy, with tingly clove notes coming through in the finish. Very good!

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Bottle. St-Ambroise Citrouille. In person trade with Glougoburp, drank at tasting because I didn’t have room in my bag for it. Pours amber red with an off white ring head. Very nice sweet and spicy nose. Very spiced pumpking taste. A little too much.

2 bottles (341ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev & mds -- courtesy of mds. Pours a clear orange-copper with an average size lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma: Yup, that’s pumpkiny alright, along with good amount of spices and backed by caramel malt. Nice spicy pumpkin flavour backed by caramel malt and a hint of hops. Medium bodied. Really good version of the style, well done!

Bottle shared with Mds, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Gregclow, courtesy of Harry? Paul? Lovely aroma - lots of pumpkin spice, nutmeg - great. Taste follows - tons of pumpkin spice, nice medium malt body - great stuff! Too bad about appearance - just plain copper with very little head and looks thin - otherwise, really flavourful!
