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.

Damico (2353) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours copper amber with a big beautiful white head, almost no lacing at all. Aroma brings sweet lambic yeast with vague fruit notes, almost a blend of pumpkins and apples. The flavor brings tart yeast flavors, slightly sweet and acidic to end as described. It is subtle on the palate but nice.

ReggieDunlap (2924) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Pours a clear caramel color with no head. Aroma is caramel apple with pumpkin pie...wow! Flavor follows suit...very fall seasonal and delicate with a hint of tart. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and pumpkin/cider seasonal.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a bright copper color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet pumpkin pie spices - cinnamon and nutmeg with faint clove and citrus. The flavor was tart and sour pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Long tart and sour finish with light spices lingering. Medium body. Solid.

Draft @ The Rake, Borough SE1. Pours an amber color with a no head. Has a fruity sour tart pumpkin aroma. Fruity sour tart and slightly funky pumpkin flavor. Has a fruity malty sour tart pumpking finish.

beerbill (3267) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2012
On draught at Blind Tiger. Pours a hazed orange with a very thin white head that quickly dissipates. Very pleasant aroma of pumpkin with a few sour notes. The flavor is pumpkin with a bit of sweetness, mild sourness and lightly tart. Perhaps a touch of funk. I found this to be a very enjoyable take on the lambic style and enjoyed it very much.

Pours a light amber color with a nice large white head. Lots of carbonation in this sweetly spiced beer. Pumpkin comes out as it warms but initially has a spiced cider quality. Slight acidic quality, not too sour. Not a true Lambic but definitely something to check out! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

illidurit (2050) - Petaluma, USA - DEC 6, 2012
On tap at burger. in Santa Cruz. Pours a hazy orange-gold color. Pretty appley/cidery really, I’d venture to say more apple character than pumpkin. Crabapple and apple pie notes, pumpkin pie spices, tart and mildly acidic tempered with doughy sweetness. Weird beer, but if you drop the lambic facade it tastes pretty decent. Not even close to ’pumpkin’ or ’lambic,’ but decent.

One I had was light in anything resembling pumpkin or spices .. thank you Jesus. Had the expected lambic character, nice and dry, slight character that was different than bog standard gueuze. I bought this on a lark as I HATE pumpkin beer, but this one I liked.
