2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amberish color with a smaller sized off white head. I found the aromas to remind me of artificial Ludens Cherry Cough Drops. If I stretched it, pumpkins. Tastes of the same with a lighter tart finish. Sweet and artificial...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle dated 09/07/15. It is more than a year old at this point. Not a bad looking orange-amber pour with a modest, short-lived off-white head. This has a fascinating aroma of overripe fruit, pumpkin spice, and a whole of of cinnamon. Medium body. The pumpkin spices offset the tart and overripe fruit characters of a typical Lambic, which makes this interesting. Not out of this world but definitely interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Treated as a lambic, this was poured into a pokal.
The appearance was a soft burnt orange (yes, pumpkin color) with a quickly dieing head. No lacing.
The aroma starts with a sweet pumpkin fleshiness flowing into subtle sour citrus rind-like character. What’s nice about this is that the sweetness seems quite balanced. Warming slight cinnamon smells nice. Slight acceptable apple juice after a little bit of further warming.
The flavor leans sweet first and then brings in the sour pretty nicely. It’s pumpkin fleshy, like real pumpkin, there’s nothing remotely fake about this at all. And the sour that comes in is real nice. Barely any aftertaste (but what there is seems a blend of apple juice to pumpkin flesh), escaping mostly quick finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fantastic sesssionability about it. Low carbonation. No stickiness.
Overall, lambic - check, subsiding sour - check, pumpkin fleshy sweetness - check. Now if this doesn’t make for a nice early Autumn’s evening, nothing will.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap (PiwPaw Beer Heaven, Warsaw)
Spicy apple pie and cinnamon aroma, totally one-dimensional. Baked apple taste, again more cinamon. Palate a bit thin, but also with a sugary stickiness and a bit too fizzy. Not a particularly good lambic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at ESBLS. I was curious about this one. Clear golden with plenty of bubbles rising. I taste sugar first followed by cinnamon and fruit. Only a little pumpkin but it increases. Interesting fruit and spices. This could be a Halloween Lambic.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, bubbled, coppery-gold with a faint ring.
Aroma is a bit cidery, apple...yeast.
Taste is sweet, not much pumpkin, more apple and brown sugar, really.
Ok, but not very biting or sour.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very tart but sweet, slightly weird mix. A very hazy beer with huge yeast particles and light carbonation. Not bad but not in a hurry to have again.
