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.

Strykzone (6633) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Sampled at ESBLS. I was curious about this one. Clear golden with plenty of bubbles rising. I taste sugar first followed by cinnamon and fruit. Only a little pumpkin but it increases. Interesting fruit and spices. This could be a Halloween Lambic.

Patrickctenchi (5946) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle: 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.

Not horrid I guess. Pumpkin colored with massive sediment particles. this was an old bottle. Vegetal, pumpkin, yeasty esters. Light bodied. What the heck for two bucks.

allmyvinyl (9319) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2015

AshtonMcCobb (5155) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2015
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.

Bottle. Apple/pumpkin, malt, and light vinegar aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet brown sugar, pumpkin, malt, and mild lactic/vinegar flavor. Decent body.

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
