An interesting take on the lambic style I hadn't thought of. The appearance was a dark orange, almost red with a thin white head. The smell was full of bright fruit such as raspberry, but also a lot of pumpkin as well. The taste started with a lot of pumpkin and finished with a tart finish. Quite tasty. (305 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours an orangey gold colour, quite pale. Steady bead; head is white-ish, quite sparse, with big bubbles on the edge. I'm on edge.

Smells dirty, and earthy. Quite Belgian and phenolic, with a touch of sweet spice, cinnamon and brown sugar. Gets more intriguing as it warms up.

Taste is far tangier than expected. Spice is there throughout, but an odd orange peel zing upfront that leads into sweet cinnamon bun notes on the back, some cola character as well. Bit odd; doesn't quite mesh.

Bit of sizzle, ultimately a bit thin on the mouthfeel.

Feels like a weak pumpkin beer; like the base beer doesn't quite match the style, but the pie spice has been thrown in as an afterthought. Quite soft drink-esque. (709 characters)

I was sharing this bottle with the Mrs. I poured from a750ml bottle into the recommended glassware, a stange style glass. It poured a slightly hazy orange hue, topped with a small white bubbly head that faded to a think layer, leaving no lacing down the glass. A very descent looking appearance.

The aroma is not very strong, but I was able to pick up on some typical spices like nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. There wasn’t a very strong pumpkin aroma, but more of a squash-like scent. There was a nice amount of sugary sweetness, blended well with a slight tartness that lingers in the nose a bit.

At first, the taste was a bit off putting, but as I drank more, the more I started to understand this beer. I grew fond of this particular beer by the time I finished my first glass from this 750ml bottle. Usually lambics are fruit heavy, and not a lot of “beer flavors,” so this one was definitely unique. There were the typical flavors found in any pumpkin beers, such as nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. There was a good abundance of sugary sweetness that hit the palate midway through the drink. There was a little flavor of squash, but not true pumpkin. As with most pumpkin beers, there was a lot of focus on the spices of a good pumpkin pie like some nutmeg, cinnamon, and even a bit of clove. What separates this beer from the rest of the heard is the natural sourness that occurs from the spontaneously fermentation by wild yeast and bacteria. It is not overly sour like others out there, but rather a good moderate overtone, that could easily make this beer a first timer’s friend.

The body was rather light, good carbonation, and drank pretty easy. The mouthfeel was smooth, and had a dry finish, which helped make the tartness stand out and linger a bit afterwards.

I am not one to say that I would jump off a cliff to gt a bottle of this, but it was still very enjoyable, and I could see myself with another glass in hand when this one comes around again. Seeing as I am fairly new to lambics, only having a few of the Kriek and Framboise styles, I did not have a lot to compare this to. For me, this was a very tasty experimental beer. We will see if anyone else releases a pumpkin lambic. Way to go Timmermans for creating something new here. (2,262 characters)

This one's been sitting around since Halloween, might as well try it. Pours a clear dark orange with small insta-fade off white colored head. Smell: light pumpkin pie aroma, mild fruity tartness. Taste: green apple, spice cookie, sour candy. Don't get any pumpkin, but the tartness is refreshing. Easy to drink, but a bit high on carbonation, like sparkling cider. Buuurp. I wouldn't try it again, but it's not bad. (415 characters)

Color- light straw. Slight head.

Aroma of nutmeg and pumpkin.

We had a pumpkin pie challenge on 12/20/2013 and enjoyed this unique brew along with many homemade pumpkin pies (including one made from Japanese sweet potatoes and one from Japanese kabocha winter squash aka pumpkin). It was the perfect brew for the occasion. Taste was light with notes of nutmeg and essence of pumpkin gradually fading to a lingering dry pumpkin seed and lambic finish. Truly unique.

Poured from corked 750 ml bottle into a wine glasses. (524 characters)

A: pours a nice clear golden hue with a finger and a half of soapy slightly off white head that fades to a small pool and collar around the glass without leaving any lacing.
S: on the nose we have some cinnamon and nutmeg
T: taste is surprisingly tart with some citrusy flavors mixing with pumpkins and some nice spice notes. Swallow is more pumpkin, some oak and a bit of spice
M: this beer sits about medium on the palate with soft and slightly active carbonation and a slightly drying finish
O: Kind of an odd beer and I'm not sure what to make of it. It's kind of like drinking a sour pumpkin pie. It isn't terrible but it definitely isn't for everybody. (658 characters)

Nice clean refreshing taste with dominant cinnamon flavor followed by a little nutmeg and cloves. Slightly sweet with some sour also. Nice orange amber color. Did not detect much pumpkin flavor at all. Overall I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor. Good to try once a year for the holidays. (293 characters)

Poured at a good temperature with a large, foamy, cream-colored head that settles after a bit and a little lace. Color is a lovely clear red amber. Aroma is super mild, bare tart and spice. Flavors like nose with all qualities magnified; chiefly nutmeg and pumpkin, some tang, dry. Body is fairly thin and carbonation ok. Finish is like flavor, average length, not up to Timmermans usual standards. (398 characters)

Pours a pale orange with Minark head. Nose starts with earthy notes followed by pumpkin flesh and some sweet notes, honey, and light vinegar. Taste starts with pumpkin and spices. This is followed up by a bit of honey and sweetness. This lambic definitely leans towards the sweet side of things. Mouthfeel is light and effervesnt. Overall, interesting but light in flavors. (373 characters)

A clear beautiful amber with a strong foamy head.

Citrusy crisp fruity nose with a strong flavor that matches the nose.

Despite a strong head I detect a flatness that keeps this beer from reaching it's potential.

This is a great change of pace beer with a nice flavor that fell a little flat of greatness. (308 characters)

Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours a deep, hazy honey gold with an inch of white head that slowly recedes leaving a moderate surface layer and lacing that continues to lighten as it sits.

Aromas of lemongrass, wheat, honey, pumpkin and pie spices.

The initial flavors are more of sour cherries and grapes with a follow through of pumpkin and honey. There is also a background of sour funk, as is to be expected from a lambic.

Light to medium bodied with a sweet but crisp finish. Heavy carbonation with a lingering aftertaste.

Overall this is one of those beers that is so unique it is hard to rate. If you are expecting something along the lines of Good Gourd or Pumpking with an emphasis on the pumpkin pie spices, than you'll be disappointed. This is exactly what it sais it is, a pumpkin lamibic. With equal hints of spicy, sweet pumpkin and hints of sour. (866 characters)

Pumpkin? ...and sour?... ok- we've seen this story angle before. When the sourness takes hold, and would-be pumpkin character gets left in the shadows. So how would this Belgian Sour fare with similar attempts...

As the ale pours, its hues of orange, amber and gold simply glow with a near-clear appearance at first but murkes up considerably with subsequent pours- until flakes of yeast fall into the glass and gives the ale a "leafing" character. Building more of a creamy head, its off-white foam reduces quickly to a sheet before holding firm. With little retention to mention, its quite obvious that its acidity impedes its foam structure.

Musty, fruity and mildly vegetal; the aromas of the beer opens up with a beautiful confectionary tone. Its "candy-store" aroma is of powdered sugar with an aura of earthen and starchy pumpkins in its most real and raw form. As the fruit settles a bit, there's a tinge of orchard peach, freshly-hung tobacco, mildly leathery must. Its an incredibly vinous scent with white wine that weaves in all these not-so-sublte nuances heading into taste.

Its flavor really prefers the fruity-sweetness over that of sour as its initial taste is of confectioner's sugar and fruit- its culmination lands it with the taste of "peach rings" candy. Sure, it says "pumpkin" but I taste peach, largely due to its strong yeasty ester display. But as its Belgian-esque taste expects a peppery balance and peps of cinnamon, instead there's the racy acidity of chardonnay that commands its taste.

And the beer plays delightfully sweet and tart on the mouthfeel as well as the taste buds. Its short-lived sweet maltiness is quickly shed in order to prefer a semi-dry finish of mild alcohol warmth, crisp fruit-like acidity and light vinous tannic astringency.

Pumpkin Lambicus does an incredibly impressive job of showing that fruited Lambics aren't relegated to fruit, but vegetables earn a spot in the fray as well. Although its taste comes across as peach, its pumpkin attributes are there, even in sublime simplicity.

This Sour Pumpkin Ale is a beautiful exploration of what can be. But this variety's over-sweetened fruitiness lands it with a sense of over-doing it. It just becomes a bit too sweet. However I do think that this level of sweetness is necessary to allow the slimmest tinge of pumpkin aroma and flavor to annunciate. (2,363 characters)

a: its a mixture of orange and blood amber, with a hint of mahogany. fizzy, frothy 3 finger white head which fades somewhat quickly and stays at around half a finger

s: this is interesting. pumpkin and tart vinegar. its not an aroma that i've come across naturally before. raw pumpkins, sweet malt, vinegar, and apple cider

t: ok this follows the nose pretty closely. its pumpkin and apple cider vinegar right away. they're blended nicely, its just an interesting combination. the tartness is only on the sides of the tongue, and is not mouth puckering at all. its quite pumpkin-y. pumpkins, caramel malt, slightly tart vinegar, and some oak in here

m: medium, and well carbonated. the carbonation helps the push the sweetness of the pumpkin into your tastebuds

o: well. as i'm sure i've mentioned it is interesting. i like the idea, and its brewed well. the pumpkin and apple cider combination is ok, but not great. its a little pricey, so if you don't think you'd like the combination, it might not be worth it. i'd been curious for a while so i went for it. not blown away, but definitely not a drain pour (1,112 characters)

750ml, 25/07/13
The Bruery tulip

A: Clear deep orange color. Pretty looking beer. Thin quarter finger of of white head. Some lacing sheeting.

S: Sweetness. Tartness. Some spice and pumpkin but muted. Definitely sweetener added to this lambic. Almost cider like.

T: Spice bite on the tip of tongue. Cinnamon. Sweetener. Not as bone dry as I was expecting. Fairly dry finish.

M: Lighter side of medium. Highly carbonated. (423 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Good solid pop off the cork when opening.

An absolutely gorgeous color, crystal clear deep bronze orange with red hints to it, and slight small cola carbonation in the body. Head is tinged orange slightly but has a light tan color, gets about two to three fingers tall. Head settles to a nice creamy simple collar and very whipped up like appearance. Collar always sticks and there is the occasional leg lace. Great impressive looker.

Nose is classic pumpkin but without the huge blasts of sugar and overbearing spices. Light cinnamon, good amount of nutmeg and clove action. Slight pumpkin but nothing overly vegetative or sweet, no sense of tartness either surprisingly but hey this is Timmermans.

Palate really surprises. Very noticeable light body but it is 4% however it comes with playful carbonation that is a little seltzery and almost cola like. Palate though brings a nice quick simple mellow tartness. Swallow and aftertaste are mellow pumpkin, with pie crust and flaky biscuity flavors. A real nice balance of sweetness in the mouth also and the spices match nicely of clove and cinnamon and nutmeg.

I really like that this is nicely balanced, easy drinking, and not a giant sugary sweet mess. I think this might be my pumpkin beer of choice for the year. We may have a new champion. (1,342 characters)

750ml corked and caged brown bottle purchased from Healthy Spirits in San Francisco, CA. Brought back to Sydney and shared with Sam and Rich.

Slightly hazy, slightly muddy orange colour, with a decently frothy head of white that leaves specks of lace as it collapses. Body is light, but with a pleasant fine carbonation in it that makes it feel a bit heavier. Looks ok.

Nose is pretty bland, actually, without much lambic bite and very little pumpkin. There's a carbonic acidity which runs through it and some ephemeral spice characters which give a very slight soapy character to the beer. As it warms, more cinnamon comes through which is pleasant enough, but mostly it's just not all that crash-hot.

Taste is very sweet, like I tend to find Timmermans' beers in general: sugary, candy-sweetness above an afterthought of acidity, this time that just happens to be laced with pumpkin and spice. The spice has a slightly plastic, artificial character on the back, again heavy with the cinnamon. Feel is light, but relatively pleasant.

Overall, only just okay. It's very sweet indeed and a little sickly, which really harms the drinkability as far as I'm concerned. The acidity is very much tamed and dumbed-down, and the pumpkin is almost just an afterthought: it's like the particular flavoured syrup that happens to have been put into this Starbucks lambic-lite. (1,368 characters)

Being a big fan of pumpkin beers when I saw this pumpkin lambic I had to give it a try. This beer proves that price does not correlate with greatness. The appearance was excellent, a dark orange brown with frothy head. Unfortunately, after that everything fell off the cliff. The aroma was similar to Martinelli's Sparkling Cider with maraschino cherries. There were subtle notes of pumpkin pie spice, but nothing like a good framboise. The taste was even more disappointing: very little sweetness, watery sour apple peels and hints of pumpkin pie spices. Considering the high price, I really felt cheated. Where is the pumpkin? (628 characters)

Appearance: Slightly hazed burnt orange/copper. Head is small, fizzy, and white. Drops to a small collar with no cap. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Loaded with sweet spice. Cinnamon and allspice with sweet apple and mild pumpkin flesh. Smells like a mulled cider. Pumpkin spice and a faint lingering tartness. A tiny bit damp. Rather akin to a cider with minimal depth. Sweet and sugary as it warms.

Taste: Apple and faint spice. Sweet cinnamon and nutmeg with a bit of allspice. Very faint vegetal pumpkin. Apple skin and flesh. Juicy with a tiny hint of a tart edge. Pumpkin pie filling fused with warm apple spice. Mildly acetic as it warms. Spiced vinegar. A hint of oak and musty earth.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with very minimal carbonation. Wet and smooth. Relatively clean.

Overall: Apple pie lambic.

Where's my pumpkin. Sweet and loaded with apple. Taste like a Lindemans. (899 characters)

Poured into a tulip. Produced on 20/08/12.

3.25 A: Partially murky medium orange color. A couple fingers of foamy white head that fell quickly and left only a few wisps of lacing.

3.5 S: I never knew Timmermans was backsweetened till now. I suppose that's why no one ever talks about them. This has a distinct apple cider aroma to it. Pumpkin is secondary. It works, especially since both things come out in the fall. It even has the whole mulling spices thing going on. Good bit of sweetness, but no overly so.

3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Spiced apple cider. I'm not even sure if I can taste any pumpkin. There really isn't a whole lot else to say. Moderate sweetness with some funk aspects hidden behind the sugars. Not a brewer's masterpiece, but it is tasty nonetheless.

3.75 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation that is soft and spritzy. Supremely smooth.

3.5 D: I never know what to make of sweetened lambics, but they always taste good. I feel like I'm drinking a soft drink half the time, but I guess it's not so bad. (1,055 characters)

Thanks to Kevin for splitting this one. Not so sure how the infusion of pumpkin beers and the lambic style will work out. Pours copper, and that's about it. Half clear and half murky allowing some light to pass through. A puffy white head billows up quickly and leaves spotty, chunky lacing behind on its down the glass.

There's a nice bit of pumpkin in the aroma, followed by some of the usual suspects in pumpkin or fall-esque beers; nutmeg, cocoa powder, cinnamon. There's a mild sweetness in the aroma that butts heads with the spices; apples, wheat, and a mild lactic character. So far, I'm not sure if this smells more like a typical pumpkin ale that hints at the lambic style, or a typical lambic style that hints at the pumpkin ale. Perhaps that's a good thing - maybe that's what they were going for?

Much to my surprise, the first thing I taste as the beer hits my palate, in fact, isn't pumpkin. Rather, a good rush of apple skins assaults my taste buds and injects a mild tartness into my sense - a VERY mild tartness, mind you, nowhere close to being sour or puckering. I am not left high and dry by the pumpkin, however; shortly thereafter, it becomes nothing but a pumkinfest and the spices begin dominating - cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, light brown sugar, wheat, pie crust....A very complimentary selection of flavors, I'd say. That light tartness tends to just fade over the course of the brew into a delicate sweetness. Aftertaste is full of a lightly sugary, spice, mildly acidic pumpkin-ish concoction. Thin-medium bodied with heavy carbonation and a mouth feel that evaporates.

Hm, definitely pretty different but definitely still tasty. I kept battling in my mind whether this was more of a regular pumpkin ale or more of a lambic, and by the end - I still don't think I've decided. It's got characteristics of both, but just maybe not enough of the lambic qualities. Had this been a little more tart, it might be a different story. (1,956 characters)

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/20/2012. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a nice 2 finger fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of tart green apple, pear, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread, clove, pepper, brown sugar, toast, grass, and earthy yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity; smells like apple pie with some pumpkin. Taste of tart green apple, pear, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread, brown sugar, pie crust, grass, herbal, clove, and light yeast spiciness. Light fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread, brown sugar, grass, pie crust, pepper, clove, and herbal on the finish for a bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity of fruit and malt flavors; with a nice malt/spiciness balance; and almost zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly slick, fairly crisp, and foamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish as expected for 4%. Overall this is a very good non-soured fruit lambic. Nice malt/spice balance and complexity, with moderate tartness; and very smooth to sip on. Really enjoyed this quite a bit. (1,366 characters)

750 ml bottle, dated 20/08/12. Pours clear copper orange with a medium fluffy off-white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is musty (slightly wet cardboardy) malts, gingerbread spices, and some pumpkin and tropical fruit.

The flavor is gingerbread spices, cinnamon and tart/sour fruits and some mustiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation.

Overall, it's interesting - like a gingerbread sour. I did like it a bit better on draft than in the bottle. The bottle was more musty and subdued. (539 characters)

750ml bottle poured into my Pumking glass. Darker orange in color and high clarity for the style. A thin, sticky white head barely covers the top.

Aroma has a sweet crisp fruit presence to it with some moderate pumpkin pie spices. It actually reminds me more of a sugary apple pie filling rather then pumpkin. I get a hint of funk to it and some moderate tartness but overall the traditional lambic flavors are overshadowed by the sugary fruits.

The taste has a little more of a doughy, pie crust flavor to it, especially in the finish. Again, I'm getting more of a sugary apple pie filling flavor to it with some cinnamon and nutmeg spices. I get a little more tartness to it in the finish but again the lambic flavors take back seat to the sugary fruits.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied for the style with above average carbonation. Overall, it was a decent beer but the sugary fruits dominated a little too much. A little more of a funky, sour lambic presence could have really helped balance it out. It was a pretty unique and interesting beer overall though. I think they also could have labeled it apple pie instead of pumpkin and nobody would think it odd. (1,167 characters)

Produced on 20/08/2012

A: Pours a very lightly hazy copper to light amber in color with some moderate amounts of orange highlights and moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are light to moderate aromas of apple, pear, and cinnamon spice - almost like a cider with some apple pie notes. Just the lightest note of tartness.

T: Upfront the beer has a cider like flavor with moderate amounts of apple and pear. Next you experience a light amount of tartness with some spices (cinnamon and just a touch of nutmeg). Finally, there is a touch of pumpkin with a little more sweetness than I expected but it is still pretty light in the sweetness. The pumpkin flavor is really most present in the finish and the after taste, along with some lingering cinnamon flavors.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly prickly from the carbonation and the acidity.

O: This is definitely an interesting beer and one that I am glad I decided to pick up and try - there is a little too much apple/pear cider flavors/aromas in it to be great but definitely worth trying in my opinion. Very easy to drink but it almost reminds me of a combination apple and pumpkin pie. (1,429 characters)

S: There are moderate aromas of apples in the nose along with some hints of cinnamon.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and is a little reminiscent of apple cider, having some tartness and hints of pumpkin pie.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and tastes a little like apple pie and pumpkin pie. (617 characters)
