New beer of the month shipment! This month’s selections seem promising and are already better than last month’s less than tasty beer.
The first beer I tried this month was the Brasserie des Quatre Lunes’ Pumpkin Saison. The brewery is an offshoot of Trafalger Ales and Meads. I love mead so I’ve actually tried some of their mead products previously.
I like pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice tea. Pumpkin falvoured beer seems like it would be a good thing. Yet it rarely lives up to the hype. This particular beer didn’t really taste like pumpkin but was alright.
The most noticeable part of this beer was it’s aroma – it was very spicy smelling, lots of cloves nutmeg, and cardamom. You could see some of the spices in the bottom of the glass when it was poured. The spice mixture was decent and made me think of fall – but not quite pumpkin pie spice. It was a unique tasting beer, I didn’t mind it but I’m not sure I could sit down and drink more than one.
