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!

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.

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.
