Tart spicy nose, not real strong, allspice, persimmon, bread. Clear amber, thick head with little retention. Tart currant, apple, allspice. Light body, moderate carbonation. Exceedingly unique, tastefully done, not as gimmicky as I expected. Surprisingly good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a clear & bright, amber hue, with a modest layer of soft white head foam that produced a persistent ring, light film, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was some tartness, brown sugar sweetness, ginger bread, and clove, with a noticeable, but subtle presence of pumpkin. Light bodied, with spritzy carbonation, the taste was an interestingly separate experience from the aroma, with tart fruit, a bit of tropical flavor, a touch of cinnamon, and a dry finish. Not overly expressive, but tastefully refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared by Bob I think. Yeast and a light hint of sourness in the aroma. Earthy, some cinnmon, just a light hint of yeast and acid, very mild sourness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pumpkin amber body with a lacy covering. Rich, roasted brown sugar pumpkin bouquet with sumptuous cinnamon notes--exquisitely inviting. Lovely brown sugar pumpkin body balanced by a tart, lightly sour note to temper the sweetness. Thinnish body makes this one exceptionally refreshing and quaffable, despite the sweetness. Cinnamon tart finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep medium to darker amber with a thick head and great retention. Aromas of slight pumpkin pie spices, slight pepsi cola, light oak impression. Flavors of slight pepsi cola, faded pumpkin, slight cork impression, slight/faint pumpkin pie spices. Flavors are all on the faded side. Everything is on the light and faded side. Doesn’t come out as much of an authentic lambic but more of a light beer in general. Only a very light touch of sour. Overall has a decent aged appeal in the flavor and aromas. Slightly sweet and tart. Somewhat refreshing and good for a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. This is a pretty blah lambic. The pumpkin does not hold up well and it comes across as a flimsy sour ale.
