look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

On tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace forms around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some apple cider and pumpkin pie spice aromas. Taste is much the same but only mildly sour. There is a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer but it isn't all that sour and doesn't really have any real pumpkin aromas or flavors.

A pumpkin sour? I pounced on this one. 4.00% ABV confirmed. 1 pint 9.36 fl oz brown glass bottle with hood-and-wire cap over a cork served into a New Belgium goblet in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I'm in the mood for a sour but I'm weary of pumpkin as a lambic choice. Still, I trust this brewery. Bottled 20/08/12 (DD/MM/YY).

Served straight from the refrigerator and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Satisfying cork pop on the open; no issues with beer surging out or anything like that.

A: Pours a two finger beige colour head of nice cream and thickness, and pretty good retention - though it's worth noting that the ABV is rather low. Body colour is a dark dull orange-copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Lacing is decent. The colour isn't horribly appealing, but there's nothing outright wrong with the appearance.

Sm: Pumpkin and spice - the usual makings of any pumpkin beer. But there's also that hint of candi sugar and light bacteria on the back end. I hope it delivers the sourness; it's coming off rather sweet here. I even get brown sugar. An average strength aroma.

She was a bit too cold, actually. I waited a few minutes while she warmed before trying it. Retention time was between 2-3 minutes.

T/Mf: Brown sugar on the open to a crisp spicey body with a pumpkin tone but not a definite distinct note. Crystal malts lend it a tingly feel until the third act, where a stilted dryness emerges along with hints of pear from the yeast. The third act is the most rewarding, with the fruity lambic notes joining with the spice in a satisfying way. No alcohol comes through. Quite cidery, actually perry-esque might be more appropriate. I get mainly gourd but not much actual seed. As she warms, a light sourness comes through - though nowhere near the level I hoped for. It's certainly a balanced beer, and I quite like it. I wouldn't call it simple but it does lack complexity. Nicely subtle. The spicing is well-executed.

Smooth and wet throughout. Good thickness; a touch overcarbonated but it's suited well to aging.

Dr: A very drinkable pumpkin beer and one that I enjoyed more than most, but it doesn't meet my hopes for it. Don't expect sourness or tartness here; it lacks the best qualities of a good lambic. Still, it delivers on what could have been a train wreck of an idea. I wouldn't get it again and there's no sense it aging it, but I think if you approach it without many expectations you may be pleasantly surprised. This is not the uber-tart pumpkin sour of my dreams, but it's a refreshing light little pumpkin beer that seems to be getting overlooked this season. I look forward to finishing the bottle; it's nice to have a low ABV beer from time to time.

Would pair well with an acidic salad.

Serve slightly chilled, but not refrigerator cold.

Low B

On draft, served in a shaker plastic cup. Can I just go on record early and say this beer is weird...very weird. The first sip was all pumpkin...the rest was all lactic acid. Still not a bad beer but it is pushing what can be considered a "lambic" to call this a lambic.

Beer is orange with a mild haze and a lazy white head of small and large bubbles no lacing, low carbonation.

Aroma is lactic, mild yeast, some pumpkin.

Beer is at first quite gourdy with big pumpkin up front, dry finish, second taste is all tart and then on out it is just tart. I don't think I like it and I won't have it again but I don't regret drinking it.

I had this at the November Baltimore Area BA tasting. Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: The bear pours a clear golden amber color with a layer of white head that sticks around quite nicely.

Smell: Right away I'm getting cinnamon and lots of it. There is an apple juice notes here as well. The overall smell is mild and light.

Taste: There is some pumpkin here, but the cinnamon dominates the flavor. Light and just a bit tart, but this isn't an overly sour beer. Reminds me a bit of a cinnamon apple cider. I think this would be a nice Christmas beer.

Mouthfeel: The body is light with mild carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this was a very interesting beer. The words cinnamon lambic were used by more than one person. The pumpkin was overshadowed a bit, but I liked the beer.

From: Binny's, Glen Ellyn, IL
Date: "Produced on 08/21/12 09:17"
Glass: Drie Fonteinen gueuze glass

Timmermans' "Pumpkin Lambicus" does not feature any tartness or sourness, except for perhaps a trace amount in the back of the throat, which makes it a fairly strange lambic-based beer. More authentic than the common Lindeman's beers, this avoids syrupy sweetness and replaces it with pie spices, rather than using whatever the lambic base's tartness could be. Interesting, but not sure I'd pick up another for $15, as opposed to purchasing some other pumpkin beer for half the price.

Pours a 2cm head of marginally off-white foam, which has average to slightly above-average retention. As the head descends to a thin cap atop the body of the beer, it leaves modest lacing along the sides of the glass: a few chunky streaks and large dots. Body is a dark orange to brown color, with orange-yellow highlights. Light brings out pale orange-yellow hues throughout the body, which is semi-hazy. Carbonation is fairly vigorous and easily visible, streaming from the bottom of the glass.

Aroma is of pumpkin puree, apple cider, and very mild pie spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, dried ginger, and cardamom. Generally, very sweet, with little of the attendant tartness and farmhouse complexity that are normally present in lambic-based beers. If nothing else, this is interesting, and certainly not repellent.

Overall taste is sweet and apple cider-like, with only slight traces of sourness along the sides of the tongue. Tasting opens with pumpkin syrup influenced sweetness, cinnamon spice, mild graininess, and a slight tartness. Mid-palate is of pumpkin cider, with fairly realistic pumpkin flavor and cinnamon with nutmeg flavoring. Back of palate continues the canned pumpkin puree taste, alongside pie spices and a bit of sweetened pie crust. Lingering aftertaste of pie spices (cinnamon, mostly), pie crust sweetness, and light bitterness/tartness.

The beer is medium to medium-light in body, with a medium-level amount of carbonation. The resulting mouthfeel is slightly thin, though carbonated enough to produce a slightly creamy or "soft-bubbly" effect. At times, this is a bit thin or watery across the palate and a bit dissastisfying as a result. Closes slightly dry, mostly wet, which likely arises from lack of acidity in the beer.

Poured into a Unibroue tulip glass. Pours a medium pumpkin amber with a fine off-white two finger head with good retention and lots of lacing. Looks nice. Compelling aroma of light pumpkin, lambic yeast and seasonal spices; peppery. Initial flavor is pleasantly sharp and spicy, mostly from carbonation, developing into sweet / sour apple, pumpkin and pie spices, especially cinnamon. Finishes with spice bitterness and light, tart apple. Light bodied, as appropriate, with active and spicy carbonation. A very nice, refreshing light sparkling lambic with a nice seasonal combination of flavors. Surprisingly bright flavors for the low ABV.

I am a sucker for anything pumpkin, so when I saw this on tap at one of my favorite watering holes (Strange Brew Tavern in Allentown), I had to sample it. The appearance is brownish-orange and there is little head to this beer. The nose only had a slight hint of spice, nothing as bold as I anticipated when ordering this offering. Both distinct sweet and sour flavors are present, but not in a terribly tasty combination. The finish did not leave me wanting more, but it was certainly good enough to finish the glass.

Not going back to the well on this one for sure.

8/20/2012 Vintage. 750ml C+C bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a clear dark brown/amber body with two finger off white head. LOng lasting cap and edging with decent lacing and retention.

S - Pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon and nutmeg, ginger, and light brown sugar. No malt to speak of. Very strong on the cinnamon spice like mentioned below, "Big Red" status.

T - Spices, apple cider, and a malty finish. Dry but with a lingering sweet syrupy aftertaste of spice. Spritzy carbonation. Sweetness makes for a slow drinker despite the light body and low abv.

O - Like most sweetened lambics this has very little relation to a traditional lambic. It does work as a nice fall dessert beer that isn't too heavy, and I have to give it to Timmermans for being unique. Not worth the money though IMO as its closer to a thin bodied pumpkin spice ale.

750ml into a snifter. The brew pours a fairly clear golden orange to copper with a couple fingers of white froth atop. Thick patchy lace sticks to the glass and a swirl revives a finger back to the surface.

The smell is quite enjoyable of pumpkin spices and cinnamon that is like bark moreso than the refined powder (if that makes sense?) A little bit of earthy pumpkin flesh character is present that fades into something reminescent of big red bubblegum. As it warms up, it smells like fresh green tea and teaberry.

The taste is strong like fresh brewed green tea mixed with a spiciness of teaberry skins and leaves. A bit of cinnamon bark and pumpkin flesh. It gets a touch of lemony tartness across the back mixing with an accenting fruity element.

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Very tea-like with earthy, natural tasting cinnamon flavoring and a bit of pumpkin. I am having a very difficult time putting down a fair reviewing score here. As a lambic this is a bit of a failure. As a pumpkin brew, it is ok. However, it was overall super unique and enjoyable...just much different from what might expext from the description.

Tap at New World Tavern in Playmouth, MA.

Light fizzy head decent lacing, hazy slight honey carrot orange color.

Nose light sour fermented pumpkin, little apple pie spices and nutty, lots of mulling spices which make it pretty aromatic but they seem kinda weird for a lambic, some sour tart funk but light, a bit of a funky gueuze, some light reddish malts.

Taste starts with a big pumpkin flavor, tons of pie both pumpkin and Apple pie, Apple pie spices and nutty flavor, some pumpkin pie and fermented pumpkin, plenty of mulling spices, light tart funk gueuze like, semi sweet too. Finish has a bit more tartness, light acidity and little flemmy, nice lambic like tartness, interesting pumpkin and apple.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb bit the bottle is probably better. Light tart flemmy finish.

Overall decent, bit too sweet, to much Apple and pie flavors, spices, nuts, etc, the crazy mulling spices make it kinda weird for a lambic, and the sweetness and pie like take it more from a traditional lambic to more of a sweet dessert lambic like a Lindeman's style but still better than that at least. I do give them some credit for a uniqueness of it, actually getting pumpkin into a lambic without it really sucking at least.

I'm glad I only paid a few bucks to try this on draft rather than a handful of money for a big bottle that I don't think I could finish by myself. The single glass is hard enough to finish.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Pours a clear medium gold color, with a thin white head and plenty of visible carbonation.

S: Tart, with mixed lactic and acetic character, with notes of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.

T: Lactic acidic with moderate tartness, light pumpkin flavors with some nutmeg. Some bready malts that result in the flavors of pumpkin break with cinnamon and allspice. A touch of funk develops as it warms through the drink. Finishes with lingering dry tartness.

M: Medium body, good carbonation sensation, and a good amount of carbonation sensation.

O: Let's face it…this style of beer does not sound particularly appealing. But honestly I found it quite enjoyable. I'm not a fan of a lot of pumpkin beers, but have enjoyed this one on multiple occasions. Recommended if you're looking for something different to celebrate the fall weather.

This poured out as a nice orange color with a big white fizzy head on top. The retention is pretty good on this beer as well as some sticky lacing on the glass. The look of this is really quite nice. The smell of the beer has a subtle sourness on the nose but mostly dominated by spices and malt sweetness. The taste of the beer actually reminded me more of an apple spice more than a pumpkin spice. The mouthfeel was bubbly and light, it was a little on the warming side as well. Overall it was a good brew, not something I would need to buy again but it was fun to try.

Pours an orange-tinged shade of amber. Mild haze. A couple fingers of sticky white head. Very good lacing. I'd be interested to know if the coloring is natural. I'd guess no. Aroma is light, mineral-ish lambic funk overlaid with fairly mild pumpkin pie spicing - nutmeg, cinnamon. Tends toward the cider side of lambics with little sourness. A touch of caramel sweetness. Taste is similar. This is a very light lambic and quite drinkable. I guess it's on the sweet side but not terribly so. Very mild pucker. Not too much spice. Mouthfeel is light with lots of creamy, gentle bubbles. This isn't a beer that's going to wow anyone, but it's light and enjoyable, and there's definitely nothing wrong with that. It's a fun, little pumpkin beer and an interesting spin on lambic.

Picked up a 750ml from Olive Tree Market for $12.99 and poured it into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a hazy copper hue with a thin white head that sticks around for a while leaving decent, but not amazing, lacing in its tracks.

S: Spicy apple cider, piney and woody, slightly funky and not much pumpkin.

T: Very similar to the nose - big time spiced apple cider - sweet and piney with a slightly herbal finish - very "Fall-like" flavors. Might not dig this one in the Summer months, but good cold season session ale...but where's the pumpkin???

M: Probably this one's greatest attribute - sparkly and dry - perfect all night drinker.

Overall unimpressive. It's hardly a lambic and has almost no pumpkin flavor. The spiced cider flavor is dominant and out of place. Definitely passing on this one in the future.

A - Fairly clear copper, off white head that leaves quickly. Lots of lace.

S - Sharp, grassy, under nose of sweet, possibly pumpkin?

T - Taste similar to smell, but the sweet finishes, with only a slight nod to pumpkin. If I had to guess it was pumpkin, I might fail.

M - Light bodied, very carbonated, sufficient balance.

D - Another pumpkin down!

Pours dirty gold in body with white bubbly head that forms a solid film over top. Aroma of fruit tartness, sour edges, subtle pumpkin slides through, and some funkin' spice. Whew, that's tasty. Dry character with light pumpkin, cinnamon, fruit tart with sharpness reminiscent of kiwi, mild funk and goat. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Dry body but some slickness is left on the tongue. Very refreshing. A lovely drink.

On Tap at Memphis Taproom.

Pumpkin Lambicus pours out a dull shade of faded orange with some gold spots popping out. The head is minimal and barely makes a dent. Flat looking after a minute or so, no stick on the way down. Swirls don't even bring anything back. The smell is subtle pumpkin with some spice, some buttery appeal, pale malt and pear. Not really tart scented. A small pucker on the first sips, with some faint pumpkin and subtle spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, all very light. The buttery appeal comes through in the taste as well with some plastic notes. Not all together real smelling/tasting, but not all together a horrible beer. I not a fan of Pumpkin beer or anything fall seasoned, yet I got through this one ok. The carb is minimal and barely there, and the body is light which aint all that bad. It just could use more bubbles. I think this is a good effort and with some more years of trying the same thing with a stronger/sturdy body, Timmermans may be on to something here, just get rid of the butter scents.

750 ml bottle, back label says produced on 21/08/12 10:22. Served in a flute, the beer pours a clear golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around for a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and tart, it smells like apple cider, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices. It tastes like pumpkin pie, apple cider, brown sugar, and some light tart apples. It's more sweet than tart tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and has a good amount of soft carbonation. It's also easy enough to drink. Overall I think this is a good and interesting brew. I wasn't sure what to think when I saw "Pumpkin Lambic", but I'm glad I bought this, I liked it. $9.99 a bottle.

Not sure what to expect from this, but I'm a little excited. The beer pours a weird dark color. Body is clear and a dirty orange color. Head is a white color that also looks dirty. About a finger of foam that falls and leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is not great. I get a lot of artificial notes and soap. Lots of dust and some brown sugar. Flavor is an improvement with a super light acidity. Some apple cider, lemon, and kiwi. On the mouth there is some metallic notes. Light body and nice carbonation.

Tastes good, but nothing else about it is all that appetizing. Still a good sessionable beer that I would drink again, but probably don't need to buy any more bottles.

Bottle (2012)

Texas Liquor
Carlsbad, CA

Clear dark pumpkin/dark orange with a moderately-sized, quickly forming, persistent creamy off-white head that leaves webs and irregular sheets of lace down the glass. Very pretty.

The aroma isn't particularly strong, not all too pleasant after a big whiff. There's some pumpkin and pumpkin spice pie character, though there's also a big note of wet towel/old dishrag character that I really don't enjoy in my beers. Good thing the flavor is much better...

The dishrag/wet towel character is completely gone in the flavor, I'm happy to report. Good amounts of pumpkin pie spice, apple sauce, mild grain, and just a hint of complementary tartness combine quite well. Not overly complex, but very enjoyable.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very nice.

Incredibly drinkable. Gulpable. This 750mL bottle is going to be gone before I know it.

Had on tap at BBC Cedarville--served into a pint glass.

Appearance: minimal head, orange-brown in color, clear, low carbonation

Smell: very odd..pumpkin, cider, Belgian spice, and sour mix--complex

Taste: first taste is big sour mix with a bit of Belgian sugars..towards the end there is cinnamon, toasted malt, and pumpkin spice--very complex at the end

Mouthfeel: sour with distinct sweetness at the end, high carbonation, light bodied

Overall: Very different but really enjoyable. Not one to get several of, but one to come back to once a month or so during the fall. This is still going to be one of those beers I look forward to in the fall as I have never had anything like it.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Pumpkin IPAs, pumpkin barleywines, and now pumpkin lambics. Sure, why not? Served in a snifter, pale orange-amber color with a slight haze, and a thin but well-retaining white head that receded to a wispy layer and rejuvenated with a quick swirl. Aroma was thin, but promised something tart and acidic with a bit of funk and spice. Taste wasn't overly sour or tart, but there was some of both there, citrus zest, apple skin, pumpkin flesh, hints of grassy funk, ginger, and very subtle spice...this wasn't a typical autumn-spice pumpkin beer. On the lighter side of medium-bodied, crisp and drying, interesting and quite drinkable.

Labeled 21/8/12

Pours a clear, dark orange amber with a medium sized eggshell head.

Aromas begin with some cinnamon spice, apple cider, raw pumpkin flesh and apple skins.

The tastes follow the nose with pie crust, apple sauce, cinnamon and some emerging dark sugar sweetness. Flavors are quite cider-like, light fruits, some pumpkin.

The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is lightly tart and semi-sweet.

Overall this was pretty tasty, more of a gimmick to be honest. Not spectacular and a little too sweet but it's pretty much one of a kind and I can appreciate the effort.

A-light bubbly orange with a nice light orange head

S-smells like the inside of pumpkin with a slight tartness. Some graininess as well. Smells good, much like a lambic.

T-comes in tasting like a mix between apple cider and pumpkin, it's quite good! There is a slight touch of autumn spice to it. Does have quite the apple ouch to it though. Great fall beer. It does have a subtle tartness to it in the after-taste that is quite pleasing. This is actually pretty good.

M-good creamy high carbonation with a dry finish

O-I was kind of skeptical of the pumpkin lambic but I am extremely pleased with this offering. The Belgian brewery did a fairly decent job. There's a lot of room for improvement, but for a fairly untouched style, this is impressive. One of the best pumpkin beers I've had.

A - Golden orange with a slight haze, huge frothy head and tons of carbonation.

S - Not very impressed with the nose, there's little pumpkin and spice aromas but a bit of an orange tea smell with cinnamon notes. Just too light for me on the nose.

T - All the aromas come to life the pumpkin is well utilized but there's a great clove, orange, and cinnamon flavor that adds sweet and savory notes. The spices blend very well and the pumpkin adds just a hint of bitterness. Super enjoyable.

M/O - Light body and above average amount of carbonation. Leaves the palate with just a hint of cinnamon spice and a light tang-like finish. For a flavor/style combo that you rarely see this one is a treat and I very much enjoy it.
