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 clear beautiful amber with a strong foamy head.

Citrusy crisp fruity nose with a strong flavor that matches the nose.

Despite a strong head I detect a flatness that keeps this beer from reaching it's potential.

This is a great change of pace beer with a nice flavor that fell a little flat of greatness.

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.

A: Great orange color with amber hue coming through. Good lacing as the one-finger head quickly fades.
S: A nice harmony of pumpkin and faint acetic overtones. Some yeast coming through as well.
T: Not overly sour. Good integration of pumpkin without getting too aggressive on the pumpkin spice. The sour notes are just enough and marry nicely with the yeast characteristics coming through. A nice lingering sour malt taste as the beer follows through.
M: Light-bodied with just a touch of frothiness.
O: True to style. Bonus points for integrating pumpkin into this style and making it not only bearable but good. A great beer and unique in its being. I would definitely drink this again.
