3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours amber with a transient fizzy head. Aroma is light acidic with some hints of spice. Full bodied - lots of foamy carb. Flavor is lightly tart, with some light pie spice and a touch of toffee. Kind of a nice median between a gueuze and a lambic so far as sugar and acidity. Develops a good dose of cinnamon in the nose. Drinks very nicely. Pumpkin? Probably.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
