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.

Picked up a bottle at Rick’s in Alexandria. Served in a tumbler on Thanksgiving. Nose is somewhat acidic with quite a bit of spice. The flavor is overwhelming spice. Loads of pumpkin pie, and a bit cidery as well. Cider component really comes out as it warms, with the spice/cider combo making it taste like liquid Apple Jacks. Not a fan.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Orange pour with a fizzy head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of acidity. Flavor is a light pumpkin note, not overpowered by spice, with a fruity and sharp tangy finish. Different and kind of enjoyable.

Nice slightly Amber color. The aroma is very Orval ish. The taste on the other hand was completely unexpected. Very acid citric / sour. A bit a medicine feeling (I guess this is the pumpkin). Actually it is quite refreshing and summer friendly but lambic beer is not my type. Not sure I could call this really a beer. Still trying an objective rating.

chuckstout (247) - 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.

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 (292) - 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 (2384) - 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 (7309) - 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.

Gateau aux épices ridiculement aqueux et peu effervescent. D’une insipidité exemplaire.
