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. Its not really pumpkin, and its not really a tart lambic. As long as youre not expecting that (and why would you given the name...ugghhh), its really not a bad beer. Id love to have this one with a hearty feast. I think it would pair nicely.

Bottle 0.75l sample at Ratebeer Belgian Winter Gathering 2017 Antwerp, Belgium at Beerlovers Bar 25.02.2017. Thanks everybody for sharing great beers! Bottle from 2013! Pour it hazy amber color with small white head. Aroma apple cider with some weird spices. Taste of pumpkin pie, cookie dough, pretty much dusty, sweet spice finihs, hm, medium sweetness, light body, thin feel, lively, strange and funky finish.

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.

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 wasnt very good fresh also.

Bottle share at RBBWG 2017, thanks for sharing. Bottled 25/07/2013 Dore prsentant un lger voile, col blanc trs fin. Arme au nez assez faible offrant un bouquet minimaliste de lambic qui est obscur par leffet de saveur ajoute 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 na pas spcialement bien vieilli. Petite note citrique sur la fin avec encore un ct lgume qui persiste.

Geproefd @ RBBWG2017. Gebotteld in 2013. Goudkleurig met kleine witte schuimkraag. Geur is zoet, pompoen en een tikkeltje peperkoekachtig. Het smaakt naar een kruidige, zoet pompoentaart met toetsen van hout. Heeft ook wel iets weg van hoestsiroop door de sterke kruidensmaak.

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.
