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.

Meh, was expecting much more lambic character, guess I havenít had much Timmermanís before? Pour was orange, near nil head. Aroma had no funk or barnyard, pumpkin tons of sweet honey and spices. Flavor followed, somewhat sweet pumpkin malt base, sweetened with sugar presumably. Mouthfeel wasnít dry enough, blah.

Bottle. Pours golden amber with a thin head. Faint fruity tartness, pumpkin spice, a little sweetness, and faint acidity. Weird. I donít know why I liked this. It sounds gross, but itís not.

Light, refreshing, & different! This is good stuff. The pumpkin kind of drowns the aroma but it has a really good dark orange pour w/ a white head that leaves a hint of lacing. Sour meets pumpkin at a happy median. Try this!

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Poured at a good temperature with a large, foamy, cream-colored head that settles after a bit and a little lace. Color is a lovely clear red amber. Aroma is super mild, bare tart and spice. Flavors like nose with all qualities magnified; chiefly nutmeg and pumpkin, some tang, dry. Body is fairly thin and carbonation ok. Finish is like flavor, average length, not up to Timmermans usual standards.

ne14sours (13) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle at Small Batch Beer Co. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices - cinnamon and nutmeg. Hint of apple as well. It tastes like a tart pumpkin pie twisted with apple cider. I liked this beer.

Pours like a fizzy cider. Aroma of pumpkin and spices with a distinct but light sourness. Taste is similar and a touch sweeter. Quite unusual.
