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.

Tap @ Urban Family Public House in Seattle... Poured hazy, dark orange amber with a thin head. Head faded quickly. Nose had cinammon spices. Tasted of pie crust, apple sauce, cinammon, and dark sugar sweetness. Juice-like, light fruits, some pumpkin, but mostly masked by all the sweetness.

Pours cloudy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is cinnamon, pumpkin and lactic acidity. Taste is sweet with light tartness on the finish. Medium bodied with thin texture and a dry finish.

750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours amber with a transient fizzy head. Aroma is light acidic with some hints of spice. Full bodied - lots of foamy carb. Flavor is lightly tart, with some light pie spice and a touch of toffee. Kind of a nice median between a gueuze and a lambic so far as sugar and acidity. Develops a good dose of cinnamon in the nose. Drinks very nicely. Pumpkin? Probably.

I had a sample of this beer poured into a pint glass from the bottle. The beer had a strong fruity aroma with lighter notes of pumpkin mixed with some apple, apricot, and grapefruit, and touches of cinnamon and straw. It had a amber-gold/straw color with a creamy white head that had good retention, excellent creamy cling and good lacing. Its taste was a fruity mix with notes of apple, pumpkin, and citrus hops, along with grapefruit touches, and a lightly sour finish. The body was light and thin, a bit dry, and left a sticky and chalky mouthfeel. Not a great pumpkin-style beer in my opinion.

Bottle from Julio’s. This is a light golden-orange brew. Light white head. Fine, bubbly carbonation. Light spice aromas. Flavor is surprisingly well-balanced. Pumpkin and spice is light. Tartness is held in check with just enough sweetness. Think pumpkin ginger ale.

On tap at Snallygaster fest in D.C. Lambic is not my favorite style but this sounded so unique I had to try it. Light Amber color with a small white head. Fruity aroma with cinnamon. Tart fruity flavor with some pumpking then a followed with dry cinnamon flavor and some yeast flavors. Very unique, glad I tried ikt.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amberish color with a smaller sized off white head. I found the aromas to remind me of artificial Ludens Cherry Cough Drops. If I stretched it, pumpkins. Tastes of the same with a lighter tart finish. Sweet and artificial...

Bottle from Capones. Pours a slightly cloudy light amber with off white head. Nose of lactic acid and pumpkin. Taste is cinnamon up front, like sucking on a cinnamon stick. The cinnamon recedes, the sourness is moderate and a bit of a pumpkin finish. Pretty solid

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Bottle at Eulogy. Medium dark orange copper pour with a good white head. Very welcome Pumpkin sour. Still a bit sweet but not nearly as syrupy as other popular fruit lambicus. Can taste a bit of actual pumpkin here though the cinnamon/nutmeg spice components are strong as well. Only "pumpkin lambicus" I have had. Much better than expected. Update: Now having on draft (also at Eulogy.) Tastes similar, but a bit more syrupy fruit. Juicy and full. Still way better than expected.
