Never had a pumpkin lambic. Let's give it a whack.

Pours up a hazy yet brilliant copper with a big bubbly white crown. Not gettin a whole lotta aroma. Some spicy pumpkin pie. Taste is tart red apples. As the beer warms up I get pumpkin and mild pumpkin spice in the finish. Mildly acidic. Nice lingering sticky sweetness in the finish also. Crispy carbo. Medium bodied. A very linear brew. Straight to the point and not too complex. Pretty solid

A tall foam in the Petrus goblet with bubbles crowded along the glass. Color is a beautiful auburn orangey brown. Earthy aroma. Mouthfeel is like Champagne.

Thin body with a sharp edge, almost tart. Slightly sweet. Not much in the way of spices but there is something besides the modest squash flavor. Apple wine taste with some red currant tang.

An interesting and easy to drink light fruity brew. From the 750 ml Belgian bottle purchased at Bottlecraft - North Park.

Bottle dated 7/13.
Now this is the brand of shark-jumping Timmermans is known for...

Amber body with bright clarity and a thin layer of parchment colored foam on the surface. Minor spotty lacing.

Aroma of cinnamon or nutmeg, not funky, sort of bland and hollow.
Lighty tart, dry finish, doesn't seem overly sweetened. More pumpkin spice, cinnamon, but essentially fairly bland. Thin, spritzy feel. I'd imagine a year plus in the bottle helped to attenuate more and lessen the sugar content, if it's bottle conditioned. Worth a try for the novelty, but not one i'll be buying.

Thanks to Aaron for sharing this one!
