Fruit lambic? I think not, perhaps more of a spice/herb/vegetal On tap at Buckeye, a murky brown with little head, nose is that of all spice and pumpkin pie, taste is more ofthe same with a slight acidic twinge in the finish.. not bad, definitely not sour though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. There’s 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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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
