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.

Silvan7 (1175) - 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 (4393) - 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.

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle dated 09/07/15. It is more than a year old at this point. Not a bad looking orange-amber pour with a modest, short-lived off-white head. This has a fascinating aroma of overripe fruit, pumpkin spice, and a whole of of cinnamon. Medium body. The pumpkin spices offset the tart and overripe fruit characters of a typical Lambic, which makes this interesting. Not out of this world but definitely interesting.

Treated as a lambic, this was poured into a pokal. The appearance was a soft burnt orange (yes, pumpkin color) with a quickly dieing head. No lacing. The aroma starts with a sweet pumpkin fleshiness flowing into subtle sour citrus rind-like character. Whats nice about this is that the sweetness seems quite balanced. Warming slight cinnamon smells nice. Slight acceptable apple juice after a little bit of further warming. The flavor leans sweet first and then brings in the sour pretty nicely. Its pumpkin fleshy, like real pumpkin, theres nothing remotely fake about this at all. And the sour that comes in is real nice. Barely any aftertaste (but what there is seems a blend of apple juice to pumpkin flesh), escaping mostly quick finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fantastic sesssionability about it. Low carbonation. No stickiness. Overall, lambic - check, subsiding sour - check, pumpkin fleshy sweetness - check. Now if this doesnt make for a nice early Autumns evening, nothing will.
