3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: The body has beautiful clarity with a perfect copper color for the Autumn. The head is tall and fluffy, but settles into a full coating with a creamy ring. This is a gorgeous looking beer.
Aroma: The aroma is reminiscent of spiced cider, namely cinnamon and nutmeg with a dash of brown sugar. The aroma is warm and inviting with a sweet edge to it.
Taste: The flavor follows the aroma to a T. There’s a mild malt base here, hints of pumpkin, but the flavor comes off like a mildly spiced cider with hints of brown sugar. The flavor leans a bit sweet and finishes quickly. No tartness at all here.
Palate: Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Goes down easy.
Overall: This is very enjoyable, even if it’s not what most want in a lambic. I find this enjoyable and a great beer for the Autumn months. This really hits the spot.

750mL bottle. Clear orange in color with a medium white head. Aroma of funk, some spice and sweet caramel. Sweet malt and caramel flavor giving way to apple tartness and spice before a malty finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange-amber color with a medium thick fluffy white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and pumpkin spice. Light-bodied with flavors of zesty lemon, pumpkin and cinnamon. The finish is fruity with a sweet spice and pumpkin aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle, shared by Andrew. Bottled 20/08/12. Mostly clear orange golden color. Some particles in the body. Thin, kind of bubbly off-white head. Pumpkin aroma in the nose. Some musty, laundry aroma. Sweet taste, lightly spicy. Medium body. Lighter, kidn of soft carbonation. Lightly sticky. Pumpkin, spice, and wet laundry. Interesting, but I’m not really sure it works for me. Some appley, cidery type flavor. Interesting stuff, but a bit sweet. Hardly sour at all. Lambic only seems to contribute some mustiness, rather than any improvement to the flavor of your typical pumpkin beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Two year old corked bottle and served in my minime Karmeliet glass: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, gram cracker, honey, cane sugar, oak, candied apple and some pils malts... okay this smells nice, not over the top with spices and missing that Lambic funk but actually very approachable. The taste is the same... moderately spicy, slightly fruity and not all that "lambic like" but strangely I am digging this for it had just the right amount of spice, right amount of sweetness, right amount of spiced apple fruitiness and just a hint of barnyard and best of all, very very quaffable.

Lightly sour and sweet. A wonderfully refreshing summer beer - sour apple juice, wood and quite a sweet aftertaste. Not very pumpkin-y. Decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml from Binnys South Loop (Chicago, IL). Picked this up a long ways back. Finally popping it. Pours a nice amber orange hue, some decent glow, decent haziness overall. Lighter glow on the edges is sunny, a bit orange. A frothy small layer of whitish head atop dies to a filmy layer, laces ok. Sticks around as a small loose film. Aromas show a bit bland, some lemon, gentle fruit, pumpkin, and bread. Mellow lactic acidity, gentle yogurt and oak. A bit light overall, faint sweetness and spice. Initial is distinct, pumpkin meets some sweetness, gentle bread, faint caramel element. Gentle pumpkin sweetness starts to meet a distinct spice, lactic acidity into the middle. Some vanilla, bigger oak with gentle spice. Faint dark fruit into the middle, decent to lighter pie spice but distinct in this smaller beer, some cinnamon and nutmeg. Gentle lemon, lactic acidity. Some yogurt, oak, and sourness is mellow. A bit carmelized, roasted pumpkin feel into the backend. Gentle sweetness, pie spice, and oak. Firm vanilla, decent lactic feel. Mellow sourness aand tart fruit. Gets weird back here. Showing that distinct roasted pumpkin and squash, a bit carmelized. Decent to mellow sourness as we press on. Pie spice element kinda messes with me at times. Finish is that distinct sweetness, spice, and gentle sourness, funk. Firm oak meets pie spice, a bit of raisin dark fruit feel. Odd beer here. Nose is a bit deadened. Flavors are solid but this doesn’t necessarily work for me personally. Meh. Kinda reminds me of flat ginger ale at times.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
