3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked and caged bottle, poured into a large wine glass. Pours a dark ruddy orange, with a good half-inch deep layer of foam on top. Good spotty lace coats the glass. The nose is really fruity, reminiscent of spiced cider - apples, pear, banana, oak. Nice aroma invites me to take a sip.
I poured this one extra cold, it just seemed appropriate at the time. Great crisp feel, with ample carbonation giving this one legs. Easy finish as the mildness really allows me to sip and sip, until I find myself gulping. As this one starts quite cold, it reminds me of an autumn cider my mom always makes - apple, cinnamon, orange peel. This is spot on. As the beer warms up a bit though, the pumpkin peeks through, though faintly. Lots of autumn spice and apples. Very mild tartness on the finish. Barely present really.
This is an oddity of a beer. It’s not really pumpkin, and it’s not really a tart lambic. As long as you’re not expecting that (and why would you given the name...ugghhh), it’s really not a bad beer. I’d love to have this one with a hearty feast. I think it would pair nicely.

Nice slightly Amber color. The aroma is very Orval ish. The taste on the other hand was completely unexpected. Very acid citric / sour. A bit a medicine feeling (I guess this is the pumpkin). Actually it is quite refreshing and summer friendly but lambic beer is not my type. Not sure I could call this really a beer. Still trying an objective rating.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of faint acidity, fruit, funk. Pours a clear yellow/orange. Spritzy with no head retention. Cinnamon, nutmeg, dry with some sweetness reminds of spiced cider.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is a little nutmeg and squash, not overtly pumpkin, with brown sugar and some earthyness. A little tart on the palate and similar aromas come forward across the palate. It’s more like fake pumpkin or brown sugar and spice than pumpkin. I have had a lot of pumpkin beers and this one falls short for me. The lower rating is that for a lambic beer it’s just not that pint worthy in my opinion.

Pleasant pumpking aroma. Tasted pumpkin with some nutmeg/cinammon spice. Almost sweet for a lambic... not a ton of sour in this guy.

Bottle from Bier:Thirty Hazy golden witha small fizzy head. Very nice aroma of light sour and holiday spice. Specifically cinnamon gummy bears I think. Flavor was less so, quite mild and tame actually. Somewhat Americanized lambic. Still pleasant and tasty.

Old Rate. 750ml corked and caged bottle. This was waaay better than expected, brought it to a haloween party almost jokingly but it is nicely sour and acidic.

Gateau aux épices ridiculement aqueux et peu effervescent. D’une insipidité exemplaire.
