3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
375mL bottle, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma is actually pretty light on the pumpkin, instead featuring loads of nutmeg, earth and some miscellaneous spiciness. Flavour is very earthy and dirty, with dirty yeasty notes, nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon. Tastes very scorched. Not a fan.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour schooner at the beer junction. Pours a ruby brown color with a thin film head. Sweet pumpkin pie like aroma. Flavor is a ton of spice up front, mixed with a candy sweet malt. Finishes on a huge pumpkin pie note. Interesting saison? Hard to really be sure on style, the pumpkin kinda buries this. At least the flavor is good. Good pumpkin overall.
