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.

Shared by Bob I think. Yeast and a light hint of sourness in the aroma. Earthy, some cinnmon, just a light hint of yeast and acid, very mild sourness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pumpkin amber body with a lacy covering. Rich, roasted brown sugar pumpkin bouquet with sumptuous cinnamon notes--exquisitely inviting. Lovely brown sugar pumpkin body balanced by a tart, lightly sour note to temper the sweetness. Thinnish body makes this one exceptionally refreshing and quaffable, despite the sweetness. Cinnamon tart finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep medium to darker amber with a thick head and great retention. Aromas of slight pumpkin pie spices, slight pepsi cola, light oak impression. Flavors of slight pepsi cola, faded pumpkin, slight cork impression, slight/faint pumpkin pie spices. Flavors are all on the faded side. Everything is on the light and faded side. Doesn’t come out as much of an authentic lambic but more of a light beer in general. Only a very light touch of sour. Overall has a decent aged appeal in the flavor and aromas. Slightly sweet and tart. Somewhat refreshing and good for a hot day.

Bottle. This is a pretty blah lambic. The pumpkin does not hold up well and it comes across as a flimsy sour ale.

Bottle; pours a clear amber with a thin white head; aroma is soft pumpkin pie; taste is sweet with the pumpkin, honey, and spices; has a light sour finish; pretty nicely balanced flavors and between the sweet and sour; it was better than expected

Bomber from Supermarket Liquors. Appearance: 3 fingers white head, amber color, clear. Aroma: pumpkin, spicy hops, Belgian fruity yeast, green apples, light caramel. Palate: dry finish, light body, average carbonation. Taste: sweet malt into fruity pumpkin becoming lightly tart to sour at the finish. Overall, like the pumpkin and light spicy hops. Very nice.

This was a pleasant surprise. Some funk in the aroma, and some definite sweet and sour flavors doing battle but in a way that works. The pumpkin is faint but noticeable and in a way that really works quite well. Pretty solid stuff.
