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.

Aged sample Small but stable white head, lace, over faintly hazy amber-gold beer. Speculoos, ginger, pumpkin, pepper, cinnamon. Sweet taste, with again speculoos, speculoosspices. Virtually no lambic features, and signs of oxydation (in a lambic??). Feels quite carbonated, rather light body. Could be anything. Speculoos, fer Chrissakes.

Thanks to Kraddel for this longtime want. Sweetened pumpkin lambic, how can I say no to that? 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG VI (2017). Bottled on 25/07/2013. Quite old now. Lightly hazy orange, small head of off-white bubbled. Oxidation is far more present in the nose than I expected, cardboard, clear cellar, strongly metallic, underneath some sugary energy drink. Taste is same heavy oxidation, metallic, big cellar, cardboard, huge wet cellar, what remains of this beer is this huge energy drink like sweetness, sugar rich, chemical caramel, pumpkin is never this sweet, hard to call it pumpkin even & it doesnt seem to contain the usual spices,... Must have been one big energy drink like affair fresh,... Body is oxidation, metallic, watery,... Even if you try to ignore the oxidation (which I expected to be less present in a beer with likely a lot of artificial sweeteners), it still isnt good, stupidly sweet, artificial sweetener affair.

Silvan7 (1192) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 7, 2016
On tap @ Beer Temple Amsterdam. giallo ambrato carico, quasi ramato, schiuma grossolana, bianca non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, classico delle fermentazioni spontanee,in aggiunta miele, speziato, (chiodo di garofano) e Vaniglia. Zucchero di canna e legno meno intensi ma presenti. Gusto Gentle-sour, acido ma senza essere aggressivo, quasi abboccato, fruttato.Si avverte la zucche e anche lo zucchero di canna. Per lo stile rotonda, poco corposa, carbonatazione vivace. Debole calore alcolico. Equilibrata ed armonica

MarcoDL (4507) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
Draft at beertemple. Aroma of mild tart, vomit and malt. Taste is quite sweet, with soft sourness, sweet candy toffee, sweet malt and subtle pumpkin. Way too sweet, but should not be a surprise with this brewer.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. 750ml bottle. Bright amber coloured with no head of foam. It has a sweet cinnamon and toffee flavour with spicy notes and a slight sugary and tart fruit and toffee finish. Ok, but a bit sweet.
