Timmermans Pumpkin Lambicus

I picked up this beer awhile back for the lawyer. I think that my sister tried this a year or so when we went to City Tap House in Philly and she really enjoyed it. Let’s see how it was out of the bottle.


ABV: 4%

Style: Lambic – Fruit

Trivia: According to anthonymartin.be, “Two traditions are brought together here in a unique complacency, namely an original succulence never tempted before. The result is sublime, liberating a graceful taste tinted by a controlled acidity on the lambic confused with the dry fruity of the pumpkin and the discreet sugar added. By crossing the middle of the mouth appears a taste of brown sugar remembering and accentuating the convivial touch of Halloween.”

Random: I feel like SNL is getting slightly funnier. I’m really enjoying watching it.

This brew poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear copper color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose presents with more spice than pumpkin. I got cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg primarily. It smelled a bit like a light pumpkin pie. The taste was pretty good. I had expectations of it being a tart bomb with spice and not meshing together at all. Instead, it had all of the pumpkin pie spices that were apparent in the nose, coupled with a bit of apple cider vinegar that was slightly tart, but not overwhelmingly so. It was very well-balanced. The body was on the light side with moderate carbonation. It had a quick finish with spice. The lawyer thought this one was okay, but nothing spectacular. This was a decent beer and an interesting take on a lambic that is worth a try if you see it on the shelves.
