Tasting at Matt’sfiery_1 (1347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2017
Hazy golden color. Strange aroma, very perfumey, talc, some vegetable (pumpkin?). Nice acidity level, some juicy fruit, citrus fruit, light perfumy spices.
375ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Nose is sour but only a very faint pumpkin pie if any. Flavour is very much so pumpkin pie with a sour character, however it’s foral and sweet and vanilla lingers on the palate. Ferris (15889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Bottle - Soured pumpkin pie. Cloudy copper gold with a decent white head. Soured pumpkin pie. Exactly as described, the question is why? Oakes (17813) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Hazy, dull tan. Thin head. Has some brett, has a little bit of spice on the nose. Tart, little bit of brett. The nutmeggy note is quite good, the balance not bad. I’d say conceptually this isn’t great, but the execution is fine enough. mcberko (18056) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy bright amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of pumpkin pie, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavour is very tart, with lots of puckeringly tart citrus upfront, followed by cinnamon, nutmeg and light vanilla. Very spicy and tart. Rather harsh in tartness, but it’s a fun one.

Pours hazy orange with low white head. Aroma of bretta, grapes, apples, almond icing. Taste is rich tart up front with a mellow citrus sweet finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation. brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 4, 2017
On tap @ Caps & Taps. Honestly, this sounds like it should be disgusting. Sour, barrel aged, spiced, pumpkin beer. Alright, let’s give it a shot... Rust colored beer with a small off-white head. I do get some of those spices but they’re relatively mild here. More of the vanilla and probably ginger coming through than anything. Some tartness to the back end here works alright. Definitely some earthy, leathery Brettanomyces qualities, a bit of damp oak, and maybe a touch of roasted butternut squash. I’m not gonna say this was amazing, but it wasn’t a disaster either. nuplastikk (6311) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Tap at Brasserie V. Orange-amber body. Thin oily head. Spicy, classic pumpkin pie spice aroma. Quite interestingly, the spices stand up to the big, biting sour tones. Cinnamon, coriander..sort of eaten up in the wine barrel sour tones. Pretty pleasant overall. wlajwl (6866) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Aroma is pumpkin/yams, fruit and sour/funk/earthy. The flavor is pumpkin/slight yams, fruit, malts and a mix of tart, sour and slightly sugary in the finish. robertjm (892) - Albany, California, USA - DEC 31, 2016
New Year’s Eve tasting flight (1 of 1 7:00p) - Abssolutely no head out of the bottle. Clear neon orange body. Aroma of freshly tanned leather. Nice tartness in the flavor. Reminds me of what I would expect a pumpkin soda would taste like. The roasting of the pumpkin really helped, along with not the usual amount of spices.
