OK, what do you get when we toss pale malted barley, pumpkin and spices into a stainless steel cauldron then stir in some magic? Uh, Trickster! The “magic” is actually mischievous Belgian yeast at play with cardamom, nutmeg and coriander. This spooky cool brew will make your glass glow bright despite the gloominess of the season.

Designed to conjure up a little fun during the darkening days of autumn, Trickster is a frivolous concoction of earthy pumpkin, comforting malt, and lively spices. This makes Trickster the brew to accompany your post-winterizing duties, family fall dinners, ghost stories, U-boast-iT stories, and “supposedly haunted” garage parties.

But the flavor range of Trickster also pairs well with citrusy and/or spicy cuisine. Try a glowing glass with your favorite dishes that incorporate nutmeg, cardamom or coriander—like Thai curries, Swedish meatballs, gingerbread…or seek out new recipes on the web. The possibilities are endless. Unfortunately our Trickster supply will end soon. Get it and enjoy it now!

Bottle thanks to pailhead for sharing. Hazy orange pour with a medium sized head that fades to a nice film. Aromas are pumpkin spices, coriander, clove and brown sugar. Tastes moderately sweet with a nice pumpkin spiced flavor. Slight watery and thin. Solid pumpkin beer.

Fairly fresh 2010 bomber. The body is a clear, dark, copper-amber color, and it’s topped by a moderately sized head of spongy, beige tinted foam. Collapsing fairly quickly, the head settles in as a wispy film with a thin, bubbly edge. Lacing is limited to minimal spotting and skinny horizontal lines. The nose is based in crusty cake, caramel sugar, and roasted pumpkin with a hint of cream. Spices are dry, suggesting toasted coriander, nutmeg, and clove, with a slight hint of cinnamon. Yeast is definitely of a Belgian mold, doughy and spicy, well paired with the malts. Flavors mostly follow suit, bitter, dark, winery spices giving a sharp edge to the dried brown sugar and toasted pumpkin malts. Earthen hops and nutmeg balance the sweetness out well, as dry, bready Belgian yeast contributes a unique feel. Still, I’d say it is a little coriander-heavy for my tastes. The palate is substantial, yet sufficiently dry, as the yeast has done well to attenuate the excess sugars. Carbonation is on the lively side of moderate, which intensifies the dryness. Overall, I found this to be solid, but far from great. Back the coriander off a bit and it would certainly be better.

Bottle shared by BrianK. Man, these guys have gone down hill. Pumpkin spice, very vegetal, zucchini, white pepper aroma. Prickly body, harsh, a bit thin. Sweet, unfermented malts in the finish. Bleh.

Maverick34 (3017) - New York, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Bottled. An orangish yellow pour with a small white head. A bit of fruitiness and the cinnamon/spiceyness combined with sugars. OK but not as good as regular pumpkin ales IMO.
