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.

Sample pour, light crisp gold with a tint of pink. White fluffed head. Nose is light, fruity, smooth and soapy. Flavor is also light. Very light. Not that sour... Tart green apples, light pumpkin.. Mild yeasty flavor.. Not spectacular.

Beaver (1720) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2013
750 ml bottle, dated 20/08/12. Pours clear copper orange with a medium fluffy off-white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is musty (slightly wet cardboardy) malts, gingerbread spices, and some pumpkin and tropical fruit.

The flavor is gingerbread spices, cinnamon and tart/sour fruits and some mustiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation.

Overall, its interesting - like a gingerbread sour. I did like it a bit better on draft than in the bottle. The bottle was more musty and subdued.

BelgianBeerGal (3932) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Traded 75cl C&C bottle. Pretty interesting overall. You definitely get some of the lambic bite and tang as the dominant feature but the pumpkin does show up a little; its muted by sweetness and a touch of spice. Not bad.

IrishBoy (4141) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 5, 2013
750 ml bottle from Beer Revolution. Nose is pumpkin, allspice, and a hint of fruity lambic tartness. Lightly hazy copper with a small beige head. Flavor is pumpkin, light sweetness, spices, and a light tart acidity. A little more tartness would be nice but it is quite drinkable, my daughter loved it!

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Pumpkin pie spice aroma. Tart and cinnamon flavor with spice and light fruitiness. Medium bodied. Tart and cinnamon lingers with spice and light apple notes.

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy orange, with a foamy head that disappears quickly. Aroma of pumpkin and refined sugar. The overwhelming sweetness leaves little room for anything else. Taste pretty much follows the aroma. An initial flavor of pumpkin is followed by the taste of orange soda--sweetness prevails. A hint of wild yeast at the end adds some funkiness to the aftertaste. Mouthfeel again echoes soda, syrupy and fizzy. In conclusion, a sweet lambic that is only mildly pumpkin flavored. Fair, but Im not sure that Ill seek this one out again.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, bubbly, white head. The bouquet is constructed of pumpkin meat, pumpkin pie spices and graham. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor presents moderately sweet malts and pumpkin pie spices accompanied by a mild note of ascorbic acidity. Finishes crisp and tangy. Pumpkin soda? Works for me. Bottle generously shared by biggsbowler!

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2012
On tap at Dexters, pours a clear golden with a thin head, the aroma is very sweet with a little bit of cinnamon and a slight fruit touch, the flavor has a slight tart front end with a little bit of funk but finishes with a strange spice finish, I guess its what you would expect from a spice/lambic beer, just didnt dig it.
