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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve ever had. Adds some additional spice, some earthiness and some pepper to what you’d usually expect from a pumpkin beer. Picked this up in Fort Collins in 2013.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
