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.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Corked and caged bottle, poured into a large wine glass. Pours a dark ruddy orange, with a good half-inch deep layer of foam on top. Good spotty lace coats the glass. The nose is really fruity, reminiscent of spiced cider - apples, pear, banana, oak. Nice aroma invites me to take a sip. I poured this one extra cold, it just seemed appropriate at the time. Great crisp feel, with ample carbonation giving this one legs. Easy finish as the mildness really allows me to sip and sip, until I find myself gulping. As this one starts quite cold, it reminds me of an autumn cider my mom always makes - apple, cinnamon, orange peel. This is spot on. As the beer warms up a bit though, the pumpkin peeks through, though faintly. Lots of autumn spice and apples. Very mild tartness on the finish. Barely present really. This is an oddity of a beer. It’s not really pumpkin, and it’s not really a tart lambic. As long as you’re not expecting that (and why would you given the name...ugghhh), it’s really not a bad beer. I’d love to have this one with a hearty feast. I think it would pair nicely.

Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
750ml bottle. Copper shade. Initial head that fades. Slightly wild aroma, but not a great deal there. Taste is more spicy, toasty and earthy with cinnamon.

Looks beautiful. Taste is pretty straightforward and lambic like, not much depth or complexity. Hint of pumpkin spice at the end. Not great.

Clear brown color, dense off-white to tan head. Sweet, malty, slight acidic, fruity scent. Acidic, fruity, brett, a tad tart taste. Tart, almonds, sweet aftertaste. Medium though fizzy mouthfeel, low to very low bitterness.

Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2017
Draft. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of pumpkin, malt, and brettanomyces. The flavor is sour with notes of malt, brettanomyces, and pumpkin, leading to a tart finish. The body is light.

SinH4 (6573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2017
Tap. Brown color with white head. Aroma is balsamico, no pumpkin really. Taste is balsamico, maybe now a touch of pumpkin. Mineralic tart finish. High carbonation. Weird experiment, its mostly like a Sour Red.

BuckeyeBoy (8861) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 7, 2017
750ml bottle pours out a hazy orange color topped with a small head. Nose is pumpkin spice sour notes and a odd sweetness. Taste is more of the pumpkin with a odd spice.

JefVerstraete (3752) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle from kraddel @ RBBWG 2017. Many thanks! Hazy orange colour, nose is spices, pumpkin, gingerbread. Some oxidation. Light tart, lemony. Bit dusty. Over the top and I assume this wasn’t very good fresh also.

sebletitje (10494) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2017
Bottle share at RBBWG 2017, thanks for sharing. Bottled 25/07/2013 Dorée présentant un léger voile, col blanc très fin. Arôme au nez assez faible offrant un bouquet minimaliste de lambic qui est obscuré par l’effet de saveur ajoutée de citrouille qui ne donne rien de naturel. Palais rappel une sorte de jus de citrouille, un peu effet soupe et gingerbread. Retrouve un lambic qui n’a pas spécialement bien vieilli. Petite note citrique sur la fin avec encore un côté légume qui persiste.
