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.

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.
