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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
