Crockett (1127) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2017
Pours an extremely macro looking gold, a short lived fizzy white head. Nose of (believe it or not) Pumpkin spice, mild raw vegetable, nutmeg, german pale malts, and some doughy yeast. Again, this is spicy, and more burny than it needs to be. It's not that it's spicier than pumpkin pie... it's just that you're swallowing more of it "quicker" and the liquid just bathes the tongeue, throat, and stomach with straight spice, without the benefit of fat and sweetness. So, it's not entirely unpleasant... but if you've been drinking pumpkin spice all day.. it has a tendency to get repetitive and hot. The beer itself doesn't, even remotely taste like a Saison. It tastes more like a spicy, malty Helles, (I know that's a lager). Minerals oils, toasted cereal, perfumey soap qualities (coriander?) at the end. Their regular pumpkin beer (3.7/5) is much better, and rounds out some of the flaws in this one.

Subliminal64 (222) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2017
Where Purchased: 650ml bottle from the LCBO Consumed: from a pilsner glass Aroma: Smells sweet, spicy and like a wheat. Appearance : unfiltered medium gold with lots of head that last almost to the last drop. Excellent lacing. Taste: tastes like a wheat meets a belgiam dubble meets a pumkin ale. Mild pumpkin and spice flavour. Palate : medium body. Sweet slightly tangy aftertaste. Great carbonation. Overall: I've said it before that I'm not much od a pumpkin beer lover. This was awesome. Easy drinking, lots of flavour, lots of bubbles. Great beer. I was glad to try and will definetly buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

AleRider78 (1453) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
Pours a large amount of foamy, bubbly head and has a yellowish/golden appearance. Thick patchy lacing. Aromas of malted barley, yeasty, oats, oranges and a tiny bit of pumpkin. Mildly spiced hop flavours along with some notes of pumpkin spice, light nutmeg and toasty malts. Also some coriander and hints of cinnamon in the finish. Huge mouthcoating sensation. tingling mouthfeel. Excessive carbonation. Really good beer with some bitterness but quite welcome.

Raistlin (459) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
Fruity aroma with some peach and pineapple notes. Foggy orange under some white bubbles. Peppery phenolic flavour complimented by tropical fruit and finishing with a moderate bitterness that lingers. Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering herbal finish.

ChadPoole (479) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Pours cloudy orange gold with a white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices, pepper, and citrus. Flavour is same as aroma but with banana. This is my first pumpkin beer of the year, looking forward to trying more if they’re anything like this. Good beer.

3.5
daje (4535) - NORWAY - APR 8, 2016
Bottle, april 30th 2015. golden/orange body with an offwhite head. Spicy aroma of peppers and the spices people use to kill the pumpkin taste in whatever product they promote as a pumpkin something. Also grassy and flowery hops. Taste of cinnamonm (another pumpkin taste that isn’t pumpkin) clove, saison yeast. funky banana and orange finish. Mildly spiced aftertaste. All in all a good beer, though a bit out of the box as a famhouse.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s
Cloudy dark blond color, no head. The aroma has a strong coriander component, and banana. The mouthfeel is dry, quite weak, and the flavor is poor.
Drinkable Saison.
