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.

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.

RexTalionis (2356) - FINLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Draught at William K, Annankatu, Helsinki. Pours hazy darker orange in color with a smallish head. Sweet overripe fruityness, cinnamon spicyness and apple baked in oven in aroma. Slightly tart mouthfeel with a mellower sweeter note as well. Cinnamon with mashed and baked apples and a biting fruity twist, which I would guess that the pumpkin added here is contributing. A bit of sweetish, quite the sugary notes towards the end, accompanied with the tart rhubarby and cinnamon baked apple feeling being there as well. I liked this one.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2013
On draft. Copper color with a medium head. Aroma of pumpkin, cloves and spice. Flavor is a distinct mix of a malty pumpkin beer and a cider. Light sourness and spice. Really quite nice.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
murky amber, puffy white head. Light pumpkin spicing in nose, Granny Smith skin. Over carbonated flavor has light lacy ice front, afghani touches with the yogurt-pumpkin blend. Pumpkin seeds dominate finish with light hay and lactic sourness. Pleasant, sourness throughout, but never meshes or becomes its own. More sourness preferred a la JP’s, but far above the sticky sweetness of most pumpkins.

ABUSEDGOAT (2335) - California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Clear amber color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is light pumpkin/spice with other notes of light funk, sugar, caramel. Medium to light body, very light tartness. I won’t lie, I think this is a tough concept to nail, and they didn’t but this had a high chance of being truly offensive and it wasn’t. (Bumped 11/20 to 12/20)

Draught at WilliamK Annankatu. Amber color, white head. Sour taste with ripe fruits, pumpkin, earthty notes and tart. Sour finish with ripe fruits, tart and citrus. Good lambic.

Keg @ Sedona. Deep amber with no head. The nose is strangely of ape cider, pumpkin, cinnamon. The taste is moderately tart. Lemon shandy, more pumpkin spice. Thin while being overly carbed. Just strange.
