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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines (it was the last one sorry!)
Appearance - amber/orange with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - funky, vegetal, savoury generally.
Taste - pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon perhaps?
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet dry tangy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - you start with a pumpkin with the intentions of making a beer. It’s a difficult order, so not the worst attempt.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big bottle. Thanks to my m-law. Color is dark honey. Aroma is pumpkins, sour grapes and sugar. Lower carbonation. Light sourness. Sugary notes. Ok. It's a lambic and I don't think I'm a big fan of lambic beer.
