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.

bottle. lightly hazy bronze color with almost no head. nose is quite interesting with sweet caramel creams, vanilla, toasted gingerbread cookie. cooked vegetables, brown sugar and marshmallow covered sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash and ginger ale flavors. light body and moderately sweet. nifty vegetal notes with mild twang. a weird one.

The aroma is sweet and slightly funky with pumpkin and spice. The appearance is copper gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall interesting but not my thing.

This beer is very thin but their is a quality unlike very other. It reminds most of a ginger ale with pumpkin. This is a good thing though. It's only very slightly tart but not enough make a difference ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from the tap at Small Bar Division. Pours a clear pale orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has a note of light sour fruit with a hint of funk and light spice. Flavor starts with light tart fruit with a hint of pumpkin and spice.

Bottle poured into glass. Was somewhat skeptical about this pumpkin lambic but this actually kicks ass. The pumpkin flavor is somewhat subtle but it seems to work well with the sour funk in this case.

Hazy pale amber with tart peach nose. Initial sourness replaced by sweet vegetal then some hay Brett notes. Long dry finish. Not artificially sweet like some but thicker in body.

750mL c&c thanks to watson1977. Pours a clear orange amber. Weak white head. Nose is lemon tea with some harvest spice pickles. Yes. I recently discovered these sweet pumpkin spice pickles. Very odd combo. Taste is mealy apple juice, pumpkin spice pickle, lemonade, sugar cube. Strange. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to pint. Looks solid; a semi-transparent orangish-brown with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; pumpkin, spice, and a little funk. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as pleasant. Average on the palate. Meh.

Surprisingly enjoyable. I’m not usually a pumpkin beer fan, but since I liked Jolly Pumpkin’s La Parcela sour, I gave this a try. Other than a subtle mint gum flavor, this had great pumpkin notes as it warmed up, without too much of the distracting spice. A touch of sourness, not as much as JP.

Bottle from Jazz at El Cerrito. Pours a light brown with medium tan head. Aroma is surprising with a nice lambic funk, dry aroma. Slight pumpkin. Taste is a good lambic mouth feel and taste at the front with some pumpkin and spice coming in, muddled and then splenda fake sweetness overwhelms and ruins this. Then there is some apple cider elements to this that works well. This one is not pleasant on the finish and leaves you with a layer of sugar inside your mouth. The concept is interesting and the apple cider is nice but the sweetness ruins this.
