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.

Travlr (21429) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy light amber color, large thick tan head with good retention and decent lacing. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is an odd but interesting combination of sour and spice. Unique, but I’m not sure about this one.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Keg at The Rake, London. Pours clear gold with a small, white bubble head. Tangy fruits on the nose, some very light gourds, hints of brown sugar. Medium sweet flavour, very slightly syrupy, with tangy berries, a bit of sugar. Light to medium bodied with fine, tickling carbonation. Sweet, faintly sticky finish with light sourness, more tangy berries, a bit of sugar. I want to say there are some vague suggestions of pumpkin rind, but if I tried his beer blind I would never say "pumpkin!". As it is, it is decent.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Tap at the White Horse (PG) Winter Ale Festival, 22/11/13. Dark orange/amber with a moderately presented light beige head that clears edgeward. Nose is apple skin, earthy straw, light spice, fruit pie, tarte fleshy fruits. Taste comprises spice, toffee apple, pumpkin pie slightly curdled having sat out of the fridge a little too long, lactic fruit lick, sweet notes, apple skins. Medium bodied, fine carbonation with a little spritz, dry fruit lead finale with a tarte edge. Ok stuff, better than I expected!

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours a hazy amber color with tall off-white head. Smells a lot like a spiced cider. Lots of nutmeg and cinnamon notes, apple cider, a light tartness, and some sweet brown sugar. Tastes a bit like a spiced cider, too. There’s a nice cinnamon and nutmeg note, some brown sugar, straw, and grass. A fair amount of sweetness and apple flavor. Nice beer, but not really a lambic.

mcberko (14396) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a dark murky orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out sweet pumpkin notes, pumpkin spices (nutmeg and cinnamon), and some sweetness. Flavour brings out pumpkin purée, pumpkin spices, as aforementioned, and vanilla. Not really any sweetness at all, which is contrary to what I expected. Doesn’t really strike me as a lambic, but just as a regular pumpkin beer. Solid in small quantities.
