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.

obguthr (4659) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Tart spicy nose, not real strong, allspice, persimmon, bread. Clear amber, thick head with little retention. Tart currant, apple, allspice. Light body, moderate carbonation. Exceedingly unique, tastefully done, not as gimmicky as I expected. Surprisingly good.

tmoreau (2975) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a clear & bright, amber hue, with a modest layer of soft white head foam that produced a persistent ring, light film, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was some tartness, brown sugar sweetness, ginger bread, and clove, with a noticeable, but subtle presence of pumpkin. Light bodied, with spritzy carbonation, the taste was an interestingly separate experience from the aroma, with tart fruit, a bit of tropical flavor, a touch of cinnamon, and a dry finish. Not overly expressive, but tastefully refreshing.

arminjewell (8672) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sour fruit, oak, lemon, some slight acetic into a bit of vegetal, pumpkin note, some cinnamon in there as well. Taste was a mix of funk, oak, slight cinnamon into some pumpkin, veggie into some lemony sour, finishing slightly spicy, slightly tart.

ordybill (693) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Poured from a 500cl bottle into a pint glass. Great amber color with a floral aroma. Not much pumpkin flavor. But has an impressive white head. Overall, a good beer.

JK (5025) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2015
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.

BillKismet (3515) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2015
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.

MrBeerFanatic (901) - Friona, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2015
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.

Imaena (2084) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. This is a pretty blah lambic. The pumpkin does not hold up well and it comes across as a flimsy sour ale.

gopherfan99 (943) - CROATIA - DEC 31, 2014
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
