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.

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.

3.15/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with an inch of foam; solid lacing action

Smell: Smells vaguely like a cider, with apple and pear elements and a touch of sourness underneath - never would have pegged it as a pumpkin from the aroma

Taste: Apple and pear cider sweetness on the tip of the tongue, up front, with cinnamon and tart flavors developing in the middle; after the swallow, there is a sense of pumpkin and cinnamon though it is very subtle and the beer finishes much as it starts, with the sweeter flavors dominant

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat prickly

Overall: I was excited to try this when I saw it for sale but it falls into the category of sweetened Lambics and just is not that interesting

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.

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.

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.
