T-Starts with moderate oak and tartness. Some spice and extremely mild pumpkin.
M-Lighter, nice carbonation with a semi dry finish.
O-Can only imagine what this beer tasted like with the full pumpkin flavor. Extremely thankful to have tried it. Thanks!

The beer is light orange to golden and hazy with a half inch of white head. Brett and yeast, funky, perhaps a touch of melon. No discernible pumpkin, per se. A solid blonde wild ale. A touch of tartness in the finish. Lingering brett notes. Smooth with minimal acetic quality.

Thanks to Ray for the share!
Burnt orange color, hazy, with a medium-sized head that retained well and laced the glass with scads of tiny bubbles. Aroma of oak, dried leaves, sour fruits, yeast. Taste was earthy and oaken, leafy and woody, bready malts, notes of mildly sour stone fruits and citrus, with a light vegetal taste in the background...but otherwise no pumpkin whatsoever remaining in this bottle. Medium body, appropriately moderate carbonation. I'm not sure whether or not the pumpkin was more prominent when this was fresh, but it had definitely faded to nearly nothing by the time this bottle was opened, a mere 7 months after the release, and in a blind tasting, I'd have never known that there ever was pumpkin in the brew. That said, this was still a great beer overall, and worth seeking out as a solid American BA sour.
