Draft at Max’s Belgian fest. Dark amber color, tan head. Aroma of sour summer fruit. Taste is tart berries and cherries. Interesting idea, and it works well enough.

hazy orange-amber, oily cream ring. Muddled acetic and brown sugar nose, dead leaves and compost. Front palate similarly muddled, more compost, mid allows bubblegum and faint sugars with caramel accents before the burning fruit end, acid winning out in the undercarbonated, sticky thin finish

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Decent toasty roasty nose with noticeable light sour aromas as well. . Murky amber brown. Flavor is sour initially with a hint of roast and dark malts. More roast and lightly chemically note that I did not enjoy at all. Odd weird unpleasant finish.

Elysian 8472@ Pumpkinfest2009. Hazy brown color with a tan head. Lightly tart citrus/lemon aromas with medium roasted malts, earthy barnyard. Nice lightly sour lemon flavor, with roasty malts, mild pumpkin, spicy hops. Good sour pumpkin.

NOTE: Dark Sour Pumpkin Ale
Elysian Great Pumpkin Beer Festival 2009 – Seattle, WA
Big sweet tart aroma with a nice amber color. The flavor was super tart and very off tasting not one of the best I have had.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Bronzed amber with luscious, tanned head. Full- bodied with decent medium-sour flavor, but no discernable pumpkin. A drinkable, middle-of-the-road sour ale.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep dark amber pour. The nose is fairly unusual. There is a bit of light tartness over a thin malt sweetness. There is a kiss of light balsamic character on the nose. There is a bit of light sweetness and some dark fruitiness, some cherry and a bit of light almost bretty cologne character. There is a nice wildness on the back of the palate that really blends nicely with the soft sweet toasted malts and molasses with a touch of light spiciness along with a bit of molasses. A touch of light spiciness on the back. I actually quite like this.

Tap at the Blind Tiger for Elysian’s Pumpkin Beer night. Murky brown pour. Sour, young balsamic aroma, with that ever-present pumpkin kick. A bit less distinct in the flavor, more malt and spice and more balanced. Tastes like a blend between a decent pumpkin ale and a mild sour. Works for me. Delightful.
