3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Brewery. Dark brown color. Thin tan to off-white head. Aroma was squash and cinnamon, with brown sugar. Flavor was spice and squash, like butternut squash, slightly sweet with caramel and sugar, but also bitter and crisp on the finish. I tasted the squash, which is quite difficult to do in many mass market brews of this variety. Good stuff.
The Sampler, Bushwick tap: Pours dark orange with a white head. Aroma is spice, squash, and Belgian yeast. I was expecting something a little maltier, but instead I got a more fruity, squashy, effervescent ale. Certainly interesting with a plenty unique taste. j12601 (12973) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2012
On tap at the brewery for their release/Halloweed party. Pours a clear amber ruby with a thin white head. Soft malt, toast, light pumpkin, a touch of caramel and some lovely Belgian yeast notes. Lightly warming, toast, nice pumpkin notes (which I’m sure were helped out a little bit by the toasted pumpkin seeds (from the pumpkins that went into the beer) available for snacking). Zesty yeast, crisp, dry and crackery on the finish. Very nice stuff.
