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.

Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of real pumpkin, not just spices... but there’s also spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) and brown sugar. There’s also some pumpkin in the taste along the usual nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. Very light acidity too. Light body. Mild/moderate carbonation. Really not that bad for a pumpkin beer. The balance is decent. There’s just not much lambic traces in there.

Bottle shared by Julien, thanks! Pours a clear orange/copper with a small white rim for a head. Nose is of christmas spices and pumpkin meat, pretty close to its goal I guess. Taste is of brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and only lightly tart. Mouthfeel is watery and carbonation really high. Overall this was not great at all, but at least it was expected.

This poured a bright hazy orange with a white head. Aroma wasof lemon squeezed on pumpkin pie. Flavor was similar, sweet with mild acid, light funk and spice. Interesting.

"Cloudy orange pour, smells a bit dusty for my taste. Flavor has a slight twang, and does the pumpkin and spice part quite well, but the funk is underdone in this beer. Decent, but a bit on the boring side."

OmegaX (1255) - Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
On tap at Oblivion. Nose is nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, lightly tart. Pour is orange/brown. Flavor is tangy, lightly sour, sweet, brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice, and a raw sugar flavor. I liked it. Sweet, sour, tangy. Not too much of anything and definitely a little different from normal pumpkin beers.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Orange pour with a fizzy head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of acidity. Flavor is a light pumpkin note, not overpowered by spice, with a fruity and sharp tangy finish. Different and kind of enjoyable.

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.
