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.

A bit like drinking a lemon-lime soda with some slight tartness that had a bag of pumpkin spice mix dropped into it for a couple minutes to add flavor. Obviously this scarcely resembles lambic, with no funk and a sourness more akin to, like, jelly beans or something that isn’t beer, but nevertheless a tasty and interesting surprise.

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.

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.

BuckeyeBoy (7535) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

Sampled at the RBBWG2017 . Thnx for sharing, everyone ! 2013 bottled beer, waited a bit to long but wanted to share with 2 people I needed to have by me simultaneously. Pours clear amberblonde, small white head. Smell is herbal. Spices, mild funk. Taste is sharp. spiced, mild sour touch . Some funk (wood) , sweetness, yet not as sweet as feared.

JorisPPattyn (9929) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2017
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 doesn’t 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 isn’t good, stupidly sweet, artificial sweetener affair.
