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.

Pours a hazy amber color with tall off-white head. Smells a lot like a spiced cider. Lots of nutmeg and cinnamon notes, apple cider, a light tartness, and some sweet brown sugar. Tastes a bit like a spiced cider, too. Thereís a nice cinnamon and nutmeg note, some brown sugar, straw, and grass. A fair amount of sweetness and apple flavor. Nice beer, but not really a lambic.

laiti (5519) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu
Aroma is sweetish with malty notes and some fruity notes (pumpkin?). Feels like a malty German lager. Flavour is rather tart with strong lemon notes, some fruity pumpkin and hints of grain. Also a sugary feeling behind all the tartness. More tart and aggressive than I expected. One could guess this was a lightly sugared faro.

olio (5899) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours clear golden color with medium-sized, thick head. Aroma of pale malts, grass, some herbs and mild spice notes. Flavour of lemon, grass, faint pumpkin notes, yeast and mild spices. Quite mild sourish palate, some spicy kick at the end. Weird.

No real pumpkin detected. Really in a nutshell it tastes like apple pie lambic. Cheers

750 ml bottle, back label says produced on 21/08/12 10:22. Served in a flute, the beer pours a clear golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around for a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. 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. Itís more sweet than tart tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and has a good amount of soft carbonation. Itís also easy enough to drink. Overall I think this is a good and interesting brew. I wasnít sure what to think when I saw "Pumpkin Lambic", but Iím glad I bought this, I liked it. $9.99 a bottle.
