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.

My wife ordered this at a bar, but I had enough of it to rate. Interesting meld of pumpkin and sour/tart, My kind of lambic. Light on the sour, not as flavorful as some, but I liked the meld of flavors and soft palate. Pretty good concoction.

This is a drinkable sour. Not really my IDEAL sour, but it's a fun change of pace. Nice brown sugar, subtle taste. ---AJ's Approval

Bottle that I didn’t buy. Pours an orange color, thin head. Nose is pumpkin spice, light Brett and some odd funk. Fairly benign in terms of lambic. On tasting, low tartness, not really lambic like. Really drinkable. Some more pumpkin spice, cinnamon and nutmeg, maybe brown sugar notes. Not as disgusting as expected and actually pretty neat. Not a great idea but it kind of works.

Draft at bxl cafe in Times Square. Pours a deep red brown amber color. Taste is extremely sweet and artificial. Eh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another pumpkin beer that I was scared to try. But the pumpkin takes a back seat to the all spice notes. And the lambic style is really subdued as well. Nice. Easy to drink but more acid reflux causing than tart or sour. More pumpkin please.

Pours deep gold into a tumbler. White micro head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Apple and brown sugar aromas. Dry and thin with sweet cinnamon, apple and pumpkin front to back.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
A golden sour ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice citrusy malt with light lactic notes, so far, smells like a Gueuze. In mouth, a sweet fruity sour taste, pumpkin spices, cloves cloves and cinnamon, watery bodied. OK.

Pours clear orange minimal head. Smell faint tart, bit of straw. Taste interesting corn sweetness, gourdy, bit of a sour kick on the tail. Lighter bodied, easy drinking. Pretty good.

Pours a clear copper color with no head. Aroma is spiced apple and sour pumpkin. The taste is thin spiced apple cider with cinnamon and a little bit of pumpkin pie spice. There’s a nice sour sweet thing going on here. Very light and a little watery but very enjoyable!

Burp Castle, NY tap: Pours brownish orange with little head. Aroma is Dr. Pepper, lambic yeast, and a hint of spice. Basically, this tastes like a slightly more beer-y version of Dr. Pepper. Pretty sweet. I didn’t really get much pumpkin spice or anything akin to that from this beer. Meh.
