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.

On tap. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, tart apples. Flavor of apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin in the finish. Interesting take on a lambic- tastes like a faro maybe with pumpkin spices. Sweet of course, light in the palate. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5)

Bottle from Wegmans. Pours fairly clear amber with a small white head that dissipates to nothing quickly. The aroma has some nutmeg, cinnamon, faint acedic notes but there is not much punch to it. The taste has a nice tartness up front which is followed by a really true pumpkin pie filling flavor, light spices. Very nice!

2013 release.
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.

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.

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.

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.
