papat444 (22) - Mercier, Quebec, - JAN 4, 2013
***2012 Vintage*** Thanks to mklever42 from BA for this beer that shares the same name as my 1st daughter! Poured from a 750ml. bottle, bottle #929. Appearance: Pours a dark brown with about 2 fingers worth of head that are unfortunately very brief with no much lacing left behind. Smell: Pumpkin seeds with some of the flesh, fresh spices, herbs. Quite powerful and nice. Taste: Bit of mint, fresh herbs, hints of brown sugar, some coriander. Pumpkin is discreet but comes out as it nears room temp. A flavorful finish. Mouthfeel: Very low carbonation takes a little getting used to. Creamy and the body overcomes a bit the almost lack of carbonation. Overall: Feels delicate and subdued, doesn’t smack you in the face. The Saison feel is much more prominent than the pumpkin aspect. Different and enjoyable.

DenverLogan (750) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2014
On tap last November at Stapleton Tap House. Listed as 9.5% Pours copper brown. Aroma of burnt malts, spices and nutmeg. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of brown sugar, burnt malts, minerals, pumpkin, tobacco, cardamon, cinnamon, pepper. Overall big and bold with a wide array of spices. Re-rate mid November at Stapleton Tap House. big aroma of herbs, coriander, sage, pumpkin. flavors of sweet malts, coriander, sage, minerals, melon. Overall big and flavorful with significant spices. I think slight aging has helped and I’m upping my rating.

Strong pumpkin pie spices with plenty of acidic sourness. Pear and cherry Pours murky brownish amber color with long lasting fluffy white head. Malty bready flavor with sour pear like with sage and other spices. Medium bodied medium high CO2 sage spice finish. Enjoyable brew. Complex flavors blend well together. Glad to have gotten this as an XMAS present ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbeatty (942) - New York, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Armin, 12/02/2013. Pours murky reddish brown, thin light tan head fades to the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is mildly sweet pumpkin with brown sugar, noticeable coriander lends a soft floral overtone, with earthy garam spice, subtle yeast in the finish. Taste follows suit- sweet pumpkin notes with an edge of Belgian yeast, dry herbal bitterness, spices present though not as strong as in the nose, lingering through the aftertaste. Medium thin body, high carbonation prickly on the palate. Interesting brew.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Excellent beer. Doesn’t slam you with pumpkin or fall spices, but rather introduces those flavors in a non-traditional way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Draft @ Falling Rock, Denver. Pours a cloudy, headless brown beer. Huge aroma of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and other spices. Flavour starts off very mild on the spices, but ends up very herbal. They managed to give it some pumpkin flavors. Saison yeast is not adding any extra’s in my humble opinion. Flavour is lasting not that long though. Decent brew, that’s all.
