Poured from a brown 750ml bottle. Has a bronze/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, light spices. Taste is pumpkin, some cinnamon, a bit sour. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall isn't bad, but I wouldn't have a need to drink it again.

Treated as a lambic, this was poured into a pokal. The appearance was a soft burnt orange (yes, pumpkin color) with a quickly dieing head. No lacing. The aroma starts with a sweet pumpkin fleshiness flowing into subtle sour citrus rind-like character. What’s nice about this is that the sweetness seems quite balanced. Warming slight cinnamon smells nice. Slight acceptable apple juice after a little bit of further warming. The flavor leans sweet first and then brings in the sour pretty nicely. It’s pumpkin fleshy, like real pumpkin, there’s nothing remotely fake about this at all. And the sour that comes in is real nice. Barely any aftertaste (but what there is seems a blend of apple juice to pumpkin flesh), escaping mostly quick finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fantastic sesssionability about it. Low carbonation. No stickiness. Overall, lambic - check, subsiding sour - check, pumpkin fleshy sweetness - check. Now if this doesn’t make for a nice early Autumn’s evening, nothing will.

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.

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle dated 09/07/15. Sampled on October 8, 2016

The pour is a decent looking orange-amber color with a modest, short-lived cream colored head. But it laces as it fades.

The aroma captures the sour overripe fruit characteristics of a Lambic as well as a pumpkin spice pumpkin ale. Big on the cinnamon.

Medium body.

The pumpkin spices and cinnamon offset any tart or sour character I might have otherwise picked up in the flavor but both characters are there. Quite interesting.

Light, transparent orange color. Sweet pumpkin aroma with mild spices. Subtle acidic flavor. Moderate corn syrup with hints of pumpkin and spices. Descent balance. For those who are venturing into sours, this may be a good stepping stone. Light and delicate but true to style.

Served in a snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy copper orange color with some clarity of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pumpkin, bready, lightly sour, and some sweetness.

Taste: Light pumpkin sweetness, bready notes, tart, and light sour notes.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, tart, pucker, lightly sour, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty cool pumpkin lambic. Getting another. More pumpkin and some notes would be nice.
