3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber. Pours a deep cloudy orange with a thin white head that leaves many small spots of lace on the glass. Aroma is tart with hints of acid and berries over a thin bit of golden malt. Flavor starts complex and fruity with a mix of sour tart fruit (cranberries, citrus) and touches of honey-like malts. Mouthpuckering tartness throughout with a dry grassy character and some malts. Strange fruitiness and strong acidity towards a very dry finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and carbonated with tingly but velvety bubbles and a medium body. Overall, interesting - no pumpkin or spice character to speak of that I can tell. More like a cranberry sour ale. Not bad, but the pumpkins on the label are a bit misleading.

Interesting take from a couple of love birds.
A: pours golden with a finger of ephemeral head which falls to a tortuous sheet of the same and some spotty lace. Near excellent clarity.
S: Interesting. The cranberries are king here and second fiddle is sour lacto smells. No real pumpkin - hooray! Some hints of leather and cinnamon of all things.
T: Tart, cranberries are evident, plenty of woody malts in the back. This is pretty drinkable.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carb. Semi dry finish.
O: Well done experiment IMO.
Serving type: bottle

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber aged a little over 2 years. Poured into my New Belgium globe glass. Pours a ruby amber color with a off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of Cranberry, pumpkin, spices and sour yeast. Tastes of the same thing in the smell with the sour cranberry flavor being the forefront. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. A lot more sour than I thought it would be but mellows as it warms and the pumpkin and spices shine through more. Pretty flavorful sour beer. It aged really well i think.

On tap at Falling Rock. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is lemon peel and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with light spice and lingering dry finish. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours a light golden color with a one finger white head that leaves light lacing. The smell is of acidic citrus tartness, and slight nutmeg spice. Taste is surprisingly prominent dry lemon acidity up front. Nutmeg flavor comes in as the beer warms in your mouth. Cranberry is a bit of an afterthought but there on the finish. Sour lemon mustiness first, with some nice flavoring lingering on the palette. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly tasty and a nice sour. Very lacey, on Orange peach body, a great picture.A little funky yeast. Orange citrus taste, the cranberry is there and its just observable. The pumpkin is in the secondary. A good pumpkin for people like me outpumpkined. December 2011 bottle. My only complaint is the cranberry should be natural cranberries and not added in j. Thanks FlandersNed.

This really tastes like itís on the verges of a sour. Has a pumpkin smell, though once the liquid is on the lips the sense of gourd is gone - itís good for someone like me who doesnít much like pumpkin beers. Cranberry comes through in taste more than anything. Pours cloudy blond with some lacing. Finishes light sour with some astringency. Bottle thanks to Sammy.
