2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had a sample of this beer poured into a pint glass from the bottle. The beer had a strong fruity aroma with lighter notes of pumpkin mixed with some apple, apricot, and grapefruit, and touches of cinnamon and straw. It had a amber-gold/straw color with a creamy white head that had good retention, excellent creamy cling and good lacing. Its taste was a fruity mix with notes of apple, pumpkin, and citrus hops, along with grapefruit touches, and a lightly sour finish. The body was light and thin, a bit dry, and left a sticky and chalky mouthfeel. Not a great pumpkin-style beer in my opinion.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
