Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Bright amber colour. A bit strange - not distinctively gourdy, but at least a clean, crisp, moderately malty amber ale with toasty/caramelly accent. Hrm.

Ferris (14366) - 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.

argo0 (14012) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 (2003): Sweet herbal aroma, with some candy sugar/bubblegum. Taste is sweet, light Tripelesque, herbal and mint. Different squash from last year, with a better taste. (2002): Cloudy golden in appearance, with a mild fruity aroma. I'd never guess the squash without being told -- the flavor is very fruity and mild, with hint of alcohol. No noticeable bitterness.
