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.

Pailhead (4900) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, lemon solveny/cleaner, and faint mustiness. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a two finger white head. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of pumpkin. The finish has ginger and nutmeg mixed with some sweet and sour lemon. Itís light-medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, more pumpkin beer than Lambic.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a large white head. The aroma is full of pumpkin with some lemon notes and some nutmeg. The flavor is similar. I get some pumpkins and vanilla notes, as well as some cinnamon and nutmeg. There is also some sweetness and sugar notes as well as a hint of funk and tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium amber, fine white bubbles. Nose of pumpkin cinnamon, vanilla bean, stone fruit. Taste is a little tangy, pumpkin, vanilla, bit of caramel in the background, lightly tart in the finish, medium carbonation, refreshing and totally unique beer.

750 ml bottle thanks to Urso at The Loyal Dog Ale House, Served in a flute, clear golden/orange color with inch off-white head that stayed around. Aroma is nice and tart, it smells like apple cider, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices. It tastes like pumpkin pie, apple cider, brown sugar, and some light tart apples. More sweet than tart tasting. Has a good amount of soft carbonation. A good and interesting brew. I wasnít sure what to think when I saw "Pumpkin Lambic", but happy to have tried this.

Corked and caged bottle, poured into a large wine glass. Pours a dark ruddy orange, with a good half-inch deep layer of foam on top. Good spotty lace coats the glass. The nose is really fruity, reminiscent of spiced cider - apples, pear, banana, oak. Nice aroma invites me to take a sip. I poured this one extra cold, it just seemed appropriate at the time. Great crisp feel, with ample carbonation giving this one legs. Easy finish as the mildness really allows me to sip and sip, until I find myself gulping. As this one starts quite cold, it reminds me of an autumn cider my mom always makes - apple, cinnamon, orange peel. This is spot on. As the beer warms up a bit though, the pumpkin peeks through, though faintly. Lots of autumn spice and apples. Very mild tartness on the finish. Barely present really. This is an oddity of a beer. Itís not really pumpkin, and itís not really a tart lambic. As long as youíre not expecting that (and why would you given the name...ugghhh), itís really not a bad beer. Iíd love to have this one with a hearty feast. I think it would pair nicely.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2013
750ml from Samís, Durham. This was on sale for $5 for a hot minute, so why the fuck not? Translucent amber pour with modest bubbles and some sediment. Dry and leafy nose as well as expected acidity, and it was interesting (and not a little disconcerting) to detect potent autumnal spice within what seems like a functional, competent lambic. Very modest acidity and not much barrel/funk complexity here, just a tart pumpkin ale for the most part. As such itís fairly enjoyable (though no Parcela), but there was a distracting dusty taste throughout as well.
