Svesse (7924) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2014
(Draught at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 20 Aug 2014) Hazy yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, sourish nose with lemon, bread, bretty yeast and hints of burnt grass (or did that come from the coffee shop nextdoor?). Malty, tart taste with notes of green grapes, white bread, grass, hints of wild yeast and a slightly dry and sour finish. Medium body, quite dry. Interesting, and quite nice. (This was called "Pumpkin Brett", 5.0%, so it might acutually be a separate entry. Let me know if that’s the case.)

tricksta_p (3612) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2016 Aroma of grains, spice, some yeast, light pumpkin. Flavour is a bit sweet with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite mild for a Pumpkin Beer.

15cl tap @ Utrechtse Bierbrouwers Festival 2014. Hazy yellow color, medium white head. Aroma soap, sweet vegetables. Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter. Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, lagerish bitter-sweet finish. Easy to drink, lagerish, not too exciting.

Douberd (4911) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2014
Tap at 4th Utrechts Brewers Festival. Light orange colour, hazy on the body. Big head, slighty off-white in colour, with good retention and light lacing left behind. Aroma is of grains, yeast. Taste is nutty and grainy, with yeast in it, I can’t say that I taste any pumpkin, but it’s very refreshing. Medium thin body, soft carbonation, good dryness on the palate. Quite good but I expected more, surely more pumpkin for one.

ShivanDragon (3509) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
@UBF14, wazig geel met witte kraag, niet echt veel aroma, wat lichte mouten en pompoen, smaken zijn redelijk bitter, lichte pompoen over een over het algemeen vrij lichte tot waterige body, redelijk hoppig. met een bittere afdronk, ik had me een betere start van het festival gewenst.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
In De Wildemand as Pompoen, 5.0%. Poured hazy light golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is lactic, soft malt and lightly sweet citrus. Medium body, flavour is medium sweet, medium bitter. Not really getting much in the way of pumpkin in this.

caesar (6680) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Tap @ Maximus, where they just call it Pompoen. Hazy golden color, medium head. Aroma of soft pumpkin, some grassy hop, bit grainy malt. Bit sweet in taste, bit bitter. Another nicely balanced, yet not really outspoken brew by Maximus.
