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.

Burp Castle, NY tap: Pours brownish orange with little head. Aroma is Dr. Pepper, lambic yeast, and a hint of spice. Basically, this tastes like a slightly more beer-y version of Dr. Pepper. Pretty sweet. I didn’t really get much pumpkin spice or anything akin to that from this beer. Meh.

mcberko (6515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a dark murky orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out sweet pumpkin notes, pumpkin spices (nutmeg and cinnamon), and some sweetness. Flavour brings out pumpkin purée, pumpkin spices, as aforementioned, and vanilla. Not really any sweetness at all, which is contrary to what I expected. Doesn’t really strike me as a lambic, but just as a regular pumpkin beer. Solid in small quantities.

Draft. Pours clear light brown/gold with a thin white head. Tastes very light, like apple juice and cider. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Slightly sweet and slightly sour. Smells like fermented apples.

Poured from bottle. Pours a gold color with hints of orange. Typical thick head with champagne like carbonation. Head dissipates moderately quickly, but leaves lots of lacing. Aromas - earthy, barnyard, some spiciness. Tastes - surprisingly sweet with orange flavor along with pumpkin spices. Tangy and maybe a hint of lime. Sme typical lambic barnyard notes, but those are subdued underneath the other noted flavors.

I found this last year at Lizardville. Grabbing a bottle for the cellar I am happy to see it still around. While somewhat experimental compared to other lambics it is closer to the sour end of the spectrum than the candylike stuff from Lindeman. If you want a cheap lambic tick buy one for yourself.

Aroma / Appearance - The warm orange body looks like someone watered down pumpkin puree. A wisp of head is all the decoration it provides. Squash, walnuts, almonds, and marshmellows smell like a Belgian version of Thanksgiving.

Flavor / Palate - Cherry 7UP with a dash of carbonation start off things well. Nutmeg, almonds, squash, and cinnamon round out a fall beer that is different than your average pumpkin ale. The finish reminds me of trying to finish up the last desserts at Thanksgiving. I’d recommend it at least once.

Ynotnitram (6) - - OCT 8, 2013 does not count
An impressive traditionally brewed Pumpkin by, they say, the world’s oldest lambic brewery. Right balance of sourness, authentic taste - a very surprising Pumpkin product indeed; what a surprise!. spontaneous fermentation all right, the authentic way.

Bottle poured an orange amber color with a ring of tan foam on the glass. Aroma has dusty pumpkin, mild spices, malt, and a bit of sweetness. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has light spices, pumpkin, cider like sweetness, and a short finish. Nice drinking and does have a Fall season feeling. I can say that it is very unique but in no way does it seem to be a lambic.

Beerenberger (1447) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Brett is the initial aroma with suggestions of spice and pumpkin present. Pours a clear amber with a small, rapidly dissipating, off-white head and spotty lacing. The taste is moderately sour with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and allspice. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Overall, somewhat disapointing. While I am a fan of lambic beers, the spices seemed out of line with what I think of as a lambic beer profile. Primarily what I taste is is an acidic cinnamon flavor. Having said that, I am impressed with Ttimmereman’s ability to creat a lambic beer using pumpkin ingredients.
