ACHops (1427) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2013
12 oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours cloudy golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is punchy caraway and a slightly sweet nutty flavor. Taste is thin light caramel malt with a somewhat abrasive earthy spicy finish. Notes of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and clove. Not at all sweet, quite bitter on the finish. Cant say Id suspect this was a Tripel at all. The box, the can, the story - these guys are simply the best in the biz at packaging. Yet again.

Can. Golden pour with a little haze to it. Frothy white head. Bread, mild banana peel, pumpkin pie spices. A little carbonation zing on the palate. Pretty good.

Copper bodied, with a ring of head. Bready yeastyness in the bouquet thats typical of a Tripel accompanied by a zesty mix of esters and pumpkin spices. Bready and yeasty pumpkin spice body. Yum.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2016
On tap at SLL tasting. Poured a hazy golden orange with a small white head. The aroma is full of fruit and yeast with some spices tossed in. The taste is a nice blend of pumpkin, spices, yeast and malt. This is a very nice tripel.

Smoothsippin (48) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Pours a hazy golden/orange with a nice white head. Spicy to the nose. Carbonation gives it a fizzy but pleasant quality. Spicy mouthfeel, just a hint of the pumpkin, not overpowering, which is good. Spicy then a bit of sweetness on the swallow. Lingers nicely. Not bad. Interesting take on a tripel.

(Can). Pours slightly hazy orange complexion with thin white head. Light aroma of Belgian yeast. Flavor is traditional Belgian, with yeast, mild pumpkin, black pepper and spices. Interesting combination of traditional Tripel with unique pumpkin spin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 15, 2016
On tap @ 21A San Leandro. Alright, pumpkin Tripel. Burnt orange colored beer with a soapy white head. Theres a good amount of ginger and spiciness to the beer. Kind of a fruity, cidery quality to it as well, which Im not sure I like that much. Quite sweet...sort of a mulled cider feel to it, actually. Good bit of sugar, caramel, and pumpkin pie, too. Wasnt the hugest fan.

tfontana (809) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom, NH. Aroma is pumpkin spice (nutmeg, cinnamon), yeasty sour (rotting apple?), mild fruity esters. Appearance is hazy orange-tinged gold with finger-width fizzy white head that dissipates quickly, fair sparkle trace lacing. Taste is moderately sweet fruity esters, cinnamon and mild alcohol early with more traditional pumpkin spice taste late. Palate is medium bodied with creamy/sticky texture, above average carbonation and long pumpkin finish. Overall, not my favorite tripel but among my favorite pumpkin beers. Fortunately (for me), sour notes in aroma dont translate to the taste.

trapped (2478) - New York, TURKEY - JAN 7, 2016
Draught @ Taproom No307. Clear bright orange with large spongy off-white head, typical vanilla like Belgian yeast aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish spicy taste with a little but of bite. I can taste pumpkin and tarragon, but galangal eludes me initially. Medium spicy hot finish (which is when the galangal makes itself known). Very interesting blend which had worked well.

wlajwl (5942) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Aroma is spices/terragon, nutty malts and a hint of heat. The flavor is spices, light fruit/citrus, wheat/malts and a mix of heat and tangy in the finish.
