Smells of light vinegar. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head lace. Great light body. Taste is earthy and a bit citrusy. Really nice complexity but I’m not sure as a beer it feels like a unified concept.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Tap at Max’s 4/27/14. Hazy golden tan body. Creamy, steady white head. The pumpkin is way more restrained than a typical example. Interesting balance between the natural gourd flavors and the saison yeast. Creamy., almost cask like carbonation. Very unique, very Belgian. Dry finish, as opposed to most pumpkin beers which tend to end sweet. Clean, yet yeasty. Smooth. Very unique.

solidfunk (5464) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Not at all bad. Pumpkin and citrus peel come together well here. Pours blonde with decent head and lacing. Light sweet finish, tastes very light for higher booze level. Tap at Churchkey.

nimbleprop (6062) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey pours a hazy orange with some thin, white head. Nose is very soapy, mild cracker, herbs, orange. Flavor is honey, a little prickly pear, some sweat, floral. Clean finish. So so.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - OCT 17, 2012
Orange body, white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with spices, caramel, some pumpkin and a grassy note. Harsh fully carbonated palate. Interesting sweet fruity flavour with pumpkin and orange, lemon and spices, with a somewhat unbalanced bitter and sour finish. Not bad.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2012
(Bottled) Opaque orange with a small, quickly fading and lightly lacy head. Aroma of pumpkin and coriandery spiciness, with some lemony maltiness. Flavor is orange-pumpkin-fruity and mildly tart, with and acidic, lightly ashy twist. Yeast and alcohol also present. Medium+ body, soft CO2. Not a very successful experiment, but drinkable. 4246

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2012
33cl bottle from Malting Pot, BB 09-2012 on label, cap says 03-2013. Dorée brumeuse, col blanc léger disparaissant très vite avec qcq particules levure flottantes. Arôme levure rappelant un cote champenois sur épice moyenne donc le potiron se trouve faible. Pointe agrumes et houblon. Palais est pétillant, pointe légère d’épices, levure typique belge avec un potiron qui reste présent ajoutant ce léger profile courge mais néanmoins en retrait. Fin de bouche garde un côté très pétillant laissant une fin de bouche fruité-amer en agrumes, cela cache trop le côté potiron dont cette bière était l’objectif. Pas mauvaise, mais qui tombe un peu son objectif initial et de ce fait le profile des graines de courge s’en retrouve pénalisé. Garde sur la fin un profile épais malt de base avec un léger piquant dont la levure reste un peu en avant avec un côté cave. On retrouve donc une bière banale qui pour moi ressemble à une remise en bouteille d’un brassin ayant mal fermenté, un peu comme la Vapeur Cochonne.
