3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy straw pour with a white head. Really heavy on the lemon tartness. A bit of peach, persimmon, mild pumpkin, and light vegetal funk. Some grass, oak, and light must. The flavor has a nice sourness to it. Persimmon, lemon, and a hint of green apple. Kind of a mineral quality to it, grass, oak, and a slight mustiness.

375mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Nose is very complex, with notes of oak barrels, light ginger and some persimmons -- very wild and complex. Flavour is an usual blend of notes -- including the persimmon, pumpkin and ginger, followed by oaky white wine notes. Very complex, cohesive and drinkable. Medium-high carbonation is appropriate here. Excellent.

THought it might be better than other pumpkin ales but it is a duckin train wreck, waaay too much spice and then sourness, which is totally unnecessary.
