COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two traditions are brought together here in a unique complacency, namely an original succulence never tempted before. The result is sublime, liberating a graceful taste tinted by a controlled acidity on the lambic confused with the dry fruity of the pumpkin and the discreet sugar added. By crossing the middle of the mouth appears a taste of brown sugar remembering and accentuating the convivial touch of Halloween.

Bottled 08/12. stored in a cellar horizontally. served at 60F in a lambic basket 2-ways. bronze / copper appearance. decent fast fading head. Nose is very much melons, gourd, some fake sugar syrup and honey. Taste is mildly tart, lots of metallic and copper notes. light sugary sweet caramel and pumpkin. Sort of weird, I’m pretty sure I overpaid for this.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Deep gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is malty black cherries and a little acidic. Black cherries and rich maltiness kick the light tartness. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

magsinva (889) - Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from hop city - pours clear orange with a white head. Aroma is funky with a pumpkin spice note. Taste is with a sour spritzer finish. Overall, I think it works, but there is room for growth here.

DiarmaidBHK (3537) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from Hop City. Pours orange with an inch of white foam. There’s a bit of spice on the nose. Lots of pumpkin on the tongue. Has a bit of tartness which fades as it warms. Finishes clean. Solid.

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2013
A bit like drinking a lemon-lime soda with some slight tartness that had a bag of pumpkin spice mix dropped into it for a couple minutes to add flavor. Obviously this scarcely resembles lambic, with no funk and a sourness more akin to, like, jelly beans or something that isn’t beer, but nevertheless a tasty and interesting surprise.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Off and chemicaly. Tastes like bandaids and lemons with very light pumpkin? Im not sure I would have even guessed there was anything pumpkin about this lightly tart plastically brown ale had the work pumpkin not been in the name.
