COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Appearance: Pours copper with a white ring around the top.

Aroma: Sweet malt, candi sugar, clove, banana.

Taste: Dry malt, spicy hops, toasted pumpkin, clove, candi sugar.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Spicy dry carbonation.

Overall: A decent Belgian, but if you were expecting a pumpkin beer, you will be disappointed as the pumpin is very subtle.

Pours a hazy copper-orange with an off-white head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of biscuit, coriander, and cinnamon, with a flavor that is spices and malt up front with a bread and pumpkin backbone and finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (6084) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Kinda works, with the combo of pumpkin pie spices and Belgian yeast, but overall is another decent beer in a long line of them, and it costs as much or more than better beers.

Pours cloudy and brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma is wheaty malts. Taste wants to be like a hefeweissen with some mellow malty and spicy overtones. Aroma and flavors are very subdued and indistinct. Hmm.

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.

Bottle: The aroma consists of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, light pumpkin, and apple. It pours a hazy amber with a two finger off-white head that eventually fades to a thick film. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel. The finish has light ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and apple. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.
