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.

On-tap last night at Sierra Grille, Northampton, MA.

A- Draft pour to a stemmed glass with a deep golden-light orange body and a small foamy pillow resting at the top. The ring remaining after head dissipation only leaves a few spots here and there.

S- Really not much to make me think lambicus but I do get a strong apple cider feel mixed with a medium-low amount of earthy pumpkin spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.

T- Fairly sweet for the style with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice; the typical pumpkin pie spice blend. Candi sugar comes to mind. Again with some apple cider notes. Slight pumpkin squash flavors.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a slick sweetness and medium carbonation. Slightly frothy texture and the tiniest bit of tarts.

I guess I didn't really know what to expect of this beer but I did expect more lambic and less sweetness. Has a strange cider feel to it that I can't really figure out. A slightly Belgian pumpkin ale.

750 ml bottle, Producted on 01/07/2014 according to the label. My first lambic from Timmermans, and my third sour pumpkin beer this year.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a coppery golden body, mostly translucent with a bit of yeast particulate visible. One finger of thin bubbly light white head that leaves some okay fluffy lacing behind.

S - Aroma is pretty light: no overt sour / tart / yeast / funk to be found. Light aromas of brown bread, pie crust, pumpkin pie spice, and some cola. No notes of green earthy spice rack. Slight sweet note of honey?

T - A very light crisp sour element up front, but it fades quickly. Cinnamon spice comes in second. Not particularly earthy or gourdy, and again no earthy spice rack notes to be found. A fairly tame, almost bland & one-dimensional flavor profile. Not bad however, by any means.

M - Feel is crisp, with only very minor tartness that doesn't linger. No sour, yeast, or bacterial flavor leftover in the finish.

Overall, a tame lambic offering from Timmermans. Not terribly impressive or complex, nor is it very pumpkin-y, but I would still be interested to try more from them, and definitely more sour pumpkin beers.
