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.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2013
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.

In a word this one sucks. Low ABV and it tastes like cider. Looks good in a glass though so I will give it that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3725) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is slightly sour with some pumpkin spice in there. Taste is actually sweet, with a lot of pumpkin and spice coming through. Feels very fizzy to me.

JBPortland (848) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 15, 2014
750ml bottle pours dark clear amber orange with 1 finger head. Nose is subtle spice, clove, malty fruit and grain, "pumpkin", not really any lambic funk. Taste isn’t uneasant but is simple, a mildly tart spiced malty beer with decently well balanced, apple sauce, cinnamon, allspice, clove, nutmeg, etc. Sourness is medium-low. Finish is spices, touch of tart earthy orange fruit and grain. Bit of a novelty but fair enough.

chinchill (1976) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2014
[On tap] Clear deep dark amber with a fine head. Aroma. Very pleasing sweet. Spicy pumpkin with a load of banana. Flavor. a bit tart, Moderately spicy with a nice mix that is not the typical American pumpkin pie mix. A faint hint of vinegar hurts the rating. O. An unusual pumpkin ale worth trying.

Bottle at tasting. Lightly hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma is spicy, lots of cinnamon nutmeg, light funky notes. Taste is spicy, not very sour, sweet actually, nice pumpkin pie filling, much less gross than expected, actually quite drinkable.

solidfunk (4193) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Of all pumpkin beers I’ve had this is among the better ones to be sure. The lambic yeast does well to balance out the pumpkin aroma. There’s cool zing to this. Lively carbonation with a touch of grapefruit in finish along with light pumpkin. Tap at Khyber Pass.
