3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: A very nice melding of spicy Belgian yeast and pumpkin pie spices. But it’s a better Belgian beer than it is a pumpkin beer.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light, orangey amber with nice carbonatoin and a small, off-white head that nearly fully diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma had light caramel; light hops; heavy spicy yeast; hints of pumpkin pie spices that increased as it warmed, and slight pumpkin. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, ever-so-slightly sour and slightly sour; while the finish was slightly sweet and sour, and moderately bitter with and average duration. There was pale malt; slight caramel; spicy Belgian, yeast, sour pumpkin, slight pumpkin pie spices, and metallic hops.
The light to medium body was very dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly metallic finish.
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 nice deep orange coloring. light aroma of all spice and sugar. taste is an even cinnamon, nutmeg, and hops. not heavy. mouth is light and semi sparkling. tap Bricks (1160) - Delaware, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Very nice appearance.. medium-dark brown color.. fizzies that stick to the glass, some head. Solid spice and pumpkin aroma.. very nice, authentic. Tastes peppery, spicy, cinnamon.. mild pumpkin, thankfully not that malty. This is one of the best pumpkin beers I can remember. beastiefan2k (4179) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2016
I was like, "ehhh I don’t like pumpkin beers." But then I was like, "ehhh its a Belgian pumpkin beer so it may not be shitty." And it was just a single. So, I got it. Well, its Halloween and I need to get to drinking these beers since its been sitting in my fridge for over a month. So, I pour it into a tuliped pint glass. Color is dark amber orange, clear. Aroma is like, "ehhhh I should have known." Flavor is like, "ehhh what a waste of time." Slightly sweet beer with sharp spices. kramer (6975) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Clear orange body with a minimal fizzy off white head. The nose is super spicy with lots of pie spice, heavy nutmeg and allspice with some caramel malt. The flavor is the usual heavy spice, almost a burny level of cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet caramel malt. Lighter bodied with a slight cling and soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, I’d take a pass on a second bottle of this. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2016

Bottle. Nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin/squash, malt, and straw aroma. Hazy amber with moderate head. Sweet honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin malt, and straw flavor. Nice balance - pleasantly sweet with spices nicely forward but not overwhelming. nittanyjim (118) - - OCT 17, 2015
