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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

brokensail (11612) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
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.

Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki. Colour is orange with small white thick head. Aroma and flavours are lemon, citrus, spices and some sweetness. Hints of pumpkin somewhere in the deep.

laiti (5980) - 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 (6530) - 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.
