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.

An impressive traditionally brewed Pumpkin by, they say, the worldís oldest lambic brewery. Right balance of sourness, authentic taste - a very surprising Pumpkin product indeed; what a surprise!. spontaneous fermentation all right, the authentic way.

Pours a clear caramel color with no head. Aroma is caramel apple with pumpkin pie...wow! Flavor follows suit...very fall seasonal and delicate with a hint of tart. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and pumpkin/cider seasonal.

Light brown/orange with faint white head with a bit of lacing. Aroma is great; pumpkin pie, spices, buttery pie crust. Very distinctive aromas like smashed pumpkin or pumking, but a much more subtle presentation. Flavors play out in a similar fashion. Slightly tart apples, spice, and a sweet, buttery finish with just the right amount of tartness to make it easy to drink. This is certainly unique, but I love it.

A sour aroma, a bit like applejuice. Copper color, a bit foggy. There was a lot of sediment in the bottom of the bottle, some got in my glass, but I didnít mind. Taste was slightly sour, like a hard cider, a tiny hint of vinegar, pumpkin pie, and a touch of caramel, and something a bit cranberryish. The sour was balanced with a slight fruity sweetness. There was minimal carbonation, but it went perfect with the gentle pumpkin flavor. The viscosity was not much higher than water, which believe is good for this style. We will be getting this again.

On tap at Snallygaster fest in D.C. Lambic is not my favorite style but this sounded so unique I had to try it. Light Amber color with a small white head. Fruity aroma with cinnamon. Tart fruity flavor with some pumpking then a followed with dry cinnamon flavor and some yeast flavors. Very unique, glad I tried ikt.

750 ml bottle, back label says produced on 21/08/12 10:22. Served in a flute, the beer pours a clear golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around for a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and tart, it smells like apple cider, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices. It tastes like pumpkin pie, apple cider, brown sugar, and some light tart apples. Itís more sweet than tart tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and has a good amount of soft carbonation. Itís also easy enough to drink. Overall I think this is a good and interesting brew. I wasnít sure what to think when I saw "Pumpkin Lambic", but Iím glad I bought this, I liked it. $9.99 a bottle.

Floback (526) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Consumed on Thanksgiving night 2012. Pours a dark orange with a half-inch of off-white head. Very faint aroma of copper and cinnamon. An expression of spices, like allspice, cinnamon, orange zest, and gala apples. High carbonation and light/medium body. Refreshing, yet uncompromising in flavor. Great brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radarsock (944) - Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Had on tap at Ale House. Pours a a gorgeous light orange which sustained a thin yet bubbly whitish ring. Aromas of pumpkin pie, cloves, nutmeg, Belgian yeast, candied yams, and organic refined sugar. Tastes the same, but ends incredibly watery not just on the mouthfeel but in the flavor as well. Aged hops, butternut squash, wort, and cinnamon by swallow. Tasty.

A really unique lambic. The flavor is reminiscent of grandmas pumpkin pie, whip cream and all. Delicious funky and carmally with a nice backbone of spices.
