Guest tap at Stewarts... (delaware) Murkey brown pour in a tulip glass. Nose of sweet malts, molases, spices and a little pumpkin. Taste is not bad... Malty sweet but not sugary, spices, pumpkin. More of an abbey dubbel than a pumpkin ale... Medium body. Overall: Nice sipping brew.
Tap @ GPBF (vintage 2012)... Poured golden/amber. Thin, vegetal yeast fermented tones. Didn’t get much in the way of pumpkin or pumpkin spice but that could be a result of a year of aging. Sort of like flavored water in a way. Drain pour. This was a bad aging experiment that I regret getting at the fest. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 1, 2012
On tap@ Elysian GPBF 2012. Hazy copper color with ivory head. Big belgian spicy yeast, dark pit fruit, earthy pumpkin aromas. Medium bodied with soft co2. Nice dark pit fruit, spicy yeast flavors with mild vegetal pumpkin--very tasty belgian style pumpkin brew DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Hazy, thick red amber. Light aroma but big palate of nutmeg and allspice with a little candied fruit and pumpkin. Nice round palate is very belgian. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
tap at CBC. notes of brown sugar, raisins, dry toast, nice pecan nuttiness. not getting much pumpkin. peary spiced belgian yeast adds complexity. low carbonation. not my favorite style, but seemed to work reasonable well as a whole. fine beer.
