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: thanks, Kevin! Copper body, not much hue variation with a mild murkiness throughout & a puffy white head to top it off. Aroma includes usual pumpkin spice aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, & cocoa powder with a mild sweetness & slightly tart lactic character on the back-end. Apple flesh, wheat, a touch of yogurt-y lacto sourness. First sip includes mostly apple skins & mild tartness... Halfway through, the pumpkin spices come out. Cinnamon, nutmeg, light ginger, brown sugar, wheat, & a breadiness that’s somewhat akin to graham cracker pie crust. Light tartness in the finish... Cocoa powder? Kind of like a slightly tart pumpkin beer; I think more sourness would have been better. Still a nice, relatively different offering, however.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. This has a huge cinnamon nose. This reminds me of a cinnamon cider. I think this is tasty, but could not drink much. Sweet and thin.

Light brown/orange with faint white head with a bit of lacing. Aroma is great; pumpkin pie, spices, buttery pie crust. Very distinctive aromas like smashed pumpkin or pumking, but a much more subtle presentation. Flavors play out in a similar fashion. Slightly tart apples, spice, and a sweet, buttery finish with just the right amount of tartness to make it easy to drink. This is certainly unique, but I love it.

joeneugs (3250) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 13, 2013
On tap at the Olde Depot. It pours a dark orange color with an off white head. The aroma has some good funk with lots of sweet sugar syrup. Light notes of baking spice. The flavor is pie crust, light vinegar and sugar, peach, pumpkin and just a touch of baking spice. Really weird. The sweetness and sour funk are well balanced, but a bit confusing. Not a bad beer. Interesting.

tgncc (2818) - Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2013
The aroma is pumpkin, hay, barnyard, like being with harvested pumpkins. The appearance is hazy gold, slight amber, white head. The flavor is squash, pumpkin, sour, hay, some pumpkin spices. Interesting. The finish is sour, pumpkin spices. Interesting combination of sweet and sour, which works better than I thought here.

burg326 (3704) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
750ml bottle corked and caged, poured an orangish copper color with aromas of wet wood, light funk and a kiss of pumpkin. Flavors were light wet hay, pumpkin and some barnyard. Interesting beer, surprised the pumpkin flavor was as noticeable as it was.

alobar (2781) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with no head. Aroma of apple, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Sweet fruity flavor with peach, apple, cinnamon, and touch of pumpkin. A bit too sweet,

Keg at Te Rake. Clean peach color with small white head. Lambic aroma but gentle an a tad sweet. Taste is acidic and sweet, hay and fruitiness. Peaches. Thin and lively carbonated. Quite good. Not the real deal when it comes to lambics but above expectations.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, light tartness, some spices and cinnamon, some apple, and light malts. Flavor the same with the pumpkin, spices, and lambic all blending. Average texture. Interesting concept, but not the best blend of the two styles.
