Zlotta (2878) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2017
Sampled from tap at ACBF 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity and a little spicy aroma of fresh grass, citrus and some spices. Sweetish-malty, slightly spicy and a little fruity taste of caramel, honey, some citrus and spices, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite spicy and a little dry finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay!

stevoj (4718) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 23, 2017
Draft at taproom. Hazy golden pour, small ring of head. Aroma is lighter, but hints at the squash. Taste adds a bit of bitterness from the squash, very mild, but savory. Nice consistency. Plrasant.

after4ever (7942) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Tap at HOTD. Stoked to finally stumble across this one, after years of (admittedly never bothering) not getting over to Higgins to try it. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with very little head, no lace. Mild sweet cereal and soft gourd on the nose. Creamy medium body with minimal carb. Lightly toasted grain and soft gourd on the mid palate, very coherent and approachable. very light tannin on the finish.

Ferris (14380) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
Draft - Sweet butterscotch, caramel and some earth. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet, a bit syrupy and a touch of earthy notes. The squash gives a very sweet earthy not that is interesting, but not really tasty.

luttonm (5719) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2015
Draft at HotD. Bright golden brown. Thin creamy foam. Creamy beer, mild earthiness, balanced sweet active body, great carbonation. Sweet finish. Lovely, but hard to describe.
