This limited release from Collective Arts boasts pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, clove, and ginger in addition to its pilsner, Munich, kiln amber, and flaked wheat malts—a veritable mouthful.

Peach coloured on the pour, this saison has little head but lively carbonation.

The nutmeg, clove, and allspice come through on the nose, with the customary tang of the lactobacillus.

The brew has a creamy and lush mouthfeel, with a tart bite and gentle malt flavours.

A clean finish to this sour ale, that eschews the routine territory of pumpkin ales with a fresh, sour twist on the classic autumnal brew.

However, other sour ales impress more—try the Duchesse de Bourgogne, or Nickel Brook’s Raspberry Über Berlinerweisse.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
