"Kermesse is an annual Belgian harvest festival featuring dancing, feasting, carnivals, and celebrating the traditions of Autumn. Our Pumpkin Saison is brewed with Belgian malt, Golding hops, fresh pumpkin meat, pumpkin spices, and a French Saison yeast. Slightly funky and delicately spiced, this fall offering is a great way to welcome in the season of Autumn colors and mild weather."

Pint on tap at Tyler’s Durham. Hazy golden-orange with a lasting cream on top. Nose of light citrus zest and mild dose of pie spices with even a bit of earthy squash coming through. Flavor is similar with a nice restraint on the spices, but a little harder to spot the pumpkin in the taste. Light-medium body has a good balance and a pleasant, medium-high carbonation.

Sample from growler at the Beers from the Bikes Villes tasting on 11/08/2013. The beer is a hazy reddish-orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast and pumpkin spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of fruity yeast, nutmeg and pumpkin pie. The finish is sweet with a spice and yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

In a not so invested attempt at further securing my lead of Quest Brewing ratings... On tap into pint glass S: Smell is spicy, light, hint of pumpkin but definitely more focused on the saison portion being peppery and clovey. A: Looks good. Hazy blood orange. Good head retention. T: Taste is what I am looking for in a pumpkin beer. Very herbaceous. The beer itself goes down light but there is a lot of flavor and clove is there, but does not dominate. Peppery, a bit of pumpkin buttered popcorn flavor. Good balance. P: Nice on the palate. Lots of flavor. Medium body, a little dull in the finish. Overall this beer is good, and very good for the style. It is nothing special, but it does what a pumpkin beer should do better than others. Very easy to drink. Very well balanced. The first Quest beer that is above average. Worth checking out.
