3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours autumn orange with a one finger somewhat bubbly head that doesn’t seem to want to stick around, I gotta say it doesn’t have that lambic appearance, it looks like a general basic beer. The aroma is kind of spicy, tart, lactic and acidic, getting pumpkin spice, primarily cinnamon and nutmeg, pepper too. The taste is all pumpkin spice, creamy, nutty and pretty tasty. Body is medium low, carbonation is high but not for the style. Overall not as unique as I was hoping for, but is still a nice beer.

Tap.. Pours a slightly hazed amber color with a slight head. The nose is a little pumpkin but to me I get more sweet apple like notes along with some spice. Cinnamon, allspice, apple, and pumpkin in the flavor. Reminds me more of spice apple sauce than pumpkin. Actually, this is better than I thought it would be. Med/Light mouthfeel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the Rake. It pours hazy deep orange-amber, with a small off-white head. The nose is unsurprisingly rather sweet, subtle pumpkin/butternut squash, spice, earth and tanginess. The taste is pumpkin pie, squash, light apricot, tangy sweet apple, brown sugar, light earth, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon, with sweet-sourish finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Of course I would prefer this to be a lot more sour, but I was actually expecting this to be worse.

At Snallygaster event. Jeez, I thought I added this particular one... did I? Didn’t I? No matter - adding it (again?) now. Anyway, so this one seemed really interesting so I got a glass of this. When it was poured it came out as cloudy orange color with a small white head. Aroma was a bit of funky character with some raw pumpkin notes. An interesting experiment, pumpkin and some fresh lambic character.

Holy cinnamon! Lots of cinnamon upfront. There is a sweet pumpkin and a touch of tart on the end. Not at all what I was expecting but an interesting brew none-the-less.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Pours pumpkin orange with a slight haze and a largish off-white head that lasts for a few minutes before falling into a skiff of foam and some lace. Aroma consists of pumpkin pie spices at first before some real pumpkin reveals itself after it sits for five minutes or so. Taste is mostly sweet but some sour skates across the tongue mid-palate. Real pumpkin flavor along with some pumpkin pie spice. Highly carbonted and a tad watery; crisp and refreshing. This is really unique, but I was hoping for more tartness. Still, this ain’t bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Churchkey. Slightly opaque orange chestnut pour. Nose and flavor combine classic pumpkin spice character with heavy nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove, but also a lovely pumpkin flesh note along with mulled cider with good dryness from the wild fermentation. Honestly this is really very tasty. Not la parcela but unique and enjoyable!

Orangish/brownish pour, off white head. Lots of pumpkin pie spice and yeast, with light lactic tartness and some oaky notes. Flavor has pumpkin, spice, crust, yeast, very light tartness. Yeasty and very drinkable. I enjoyed this quite a bit.
