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.

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. Itís not really pumpkin, and itís not really a tart lambic. As long as youíre not expecting that (and why would you given the name...ugghhh), itís really not a bad beer. Iíd love to have this one with a hearty feast. I think it would pair nicely.

This was a pleasant surprise. Some funk in the aroma, and some definite sweet and sour flavors doing battle but in a way that works. The pumpkin is faint but noticeable and in a way that really works quite well. Pretty solid stuff.

Bottle. Clear orange pour with a small head that fades to a thick ring. Aroma is much closer to apple cider than pumpkin. Green apple, light cinnamon, jolly ranchers, and clove. Tastes like sugary apple cider. Light spiced. Moderately tart. Mouthfeel is gritty. This is like a below average cider.

Brother in law bought this one for Thanksgiving having no idea is was not your run of the mill pumpkin beers. I liked is enough, he did not. The light effervescent nature was nice after the heavy meal. LIghtly tart, earthy, light sweet with brown sugar. Certainly not your typical pumpkin beer, but a nice change.

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

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 (924) - 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 isnít 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.
