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.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
