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.

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 5, 2013
750 ml bottle from Beer Revolution. Nose is pumpkin, allspice, and a hint of fruity lambic tartness. Lightly hazy copper with a small beige head. Flavor is pumpkin, light sweetness, spices, and a light tart acidity. A little more tartness would be nice but it is quite drinkable, my daughter loved it!

chuckstout (243) - Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Aroma of faint acidity, fruit, funk. Pours a clear yellow/orange. Spritzy with no head retention. Cinnamon, nutmeg, dry with some sweetness reminds of spiced cider.

Cory (295) - , California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is a little nutmeg and squash, not overtly pumpkin, with brown sugar and some earthyness. A little tart on the palate and similar aromas come forward across the palate. It’s more like fake pumpkin or brown sugar and spice than pumpkin. I have had a lot of pumpkin beers and this one falls short for me. The lower rating is that for a lambic beer it’s just not that pint worthy in my opinion.

Frahmo (248) - Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pleasant pumpking aroma. Tasted pumpkin with some nutmeg/cinammon spice. Almost sweet for a lambic... not a ton of sour in this guy.

IndianaRed (2315) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from Bier:Thirty Hazy golden witha small fizzy head. Very nice aroma of light sour and holiday spice. Specifically cinnamon gummy bears I think. Flavor was less so, quite mild and tame actually. Somewhat Americanized lambic. Still pleasant and tasty.

crossovert (6940) - Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
Old Rate. 750ml corked and caged bottle. This was waaay better than expected, brought it to a haloween party almost jokingly but it is nicely sour and acidic.

Marheb (1948) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Gateau aux épices ridiculement aqueux et peu effervescent. D’une insipidité exemplaire.

Beerdedone (2573) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, and some light funk. Flavor was slightly sour with pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and had a touch of brown sugar.

drjay44 (2568) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Bottled 07/24/13. Pours a thin short lived, ivory head, ovar a clear, dark amber (SRM 14) body....nose is very light pie , aspice, hints of pumpkin, with a quite dominant floral honey note, minimal hop tones....taste is sweet, with heavy floral honey tones, barest hints of pumpkin, finishing with a mild sweetness, and light sourness....mouth feel, light body, slightly sticky, light lactic sour on the tongue sides. The acidity of this beer is quite light, and the dominant notes are of a floral honey type sweetness. The pumpkin is mildly there, and combined with the sweetness raises the hints of spice. It is only minimally sour. BJCP 7/3/12/5/6

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2014
750ml bottle split with Anndiesel on Valentines Day 2014. Unfiltered dulled orange. Head fades out to an oily residue after a few minutes. Has some of that funked barnyard sour wheat and orange sourness in the aroma, but not quite as forced as US sours. Pleasant on the palate, light to medium bodied. Quite sweet, but very tasty. Really enjoyable light fruity pumpkin flavor, nothing like the spice bombs. The bonus sugar does smooth it all out, but gives it a sort of nutrasweet thing. You know what, this is a Faro. Delicate lactic sourness gives it a great sourness. Delicate and sublime, with a steady sugary undercurrent. Not unlike some of the sugary cheap Belgian lambics, but a little more depth and authenticity.
