Draught at the brewpub. Peach-yellow-brown color. Flat. Aroma of squash, spices, soft malts. Rich and potent. Sweet squash flavor with honey, some alcohol and spices. Quite flavorful. Soft, silky palate, a bit light. Strange, sweet, a bit cloying, but nice.

Spicy, a little like cider with a touch of herbal flavor but no aroma. Sweet, not bitter or sour.

12 ounce sample on tap at Brouwers Cafe. The aroma on this is lightly fruity, with hints of strawberries. Pretty faint, and not really dynamic. Murky, hazy copper-golden body with a small, weak, off-white head. Starts sweet, lightly sugary, and very undercarbonated. Body is fairly thick and chewy. No hop bitterness. WTF is this? Tastes like wort to me. Most disappointing beer I had in Seattle.

Very hazy and and cloudy light brown color with fruity flavor, kind of different without hops (squash instead), but still tastes pretty good.

Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is slightly sweet and tart with grapefruit, apricot and hay. Flavour is sweet with grapefruit, some peaches, pineapple juice and fruit sugar. Warming alcohol in the finish. Sticky and somewhat leathery palate. A bit odd.

Sampler @ Hair of the Dog, Portland.
Pours murky green-brown color with minimal head. Looks like dish water. Aroma of nettle, grass, honey and goose berry bush. Flavour of honey, hay, goose berry, toffee hints and some fruits. Quite odd.

On tap @ Brouwers. Let me say up front I would never seek out a squash beer. But its HotD... Gotta try it. Pours opaque brownish orange with super thin head. Aroma is earthy sweet. Taste is funky fruit, slight tartness, grassy herb finish. Yeah, I guess thats squash in there too. No hops to speak of. Odd beer. It just doesnt measure up as something youd drink consistently, but you have to give them credit for having the stones to do a beer like this.
