Well sure, balance out is one thing. But harsh & horrible to best beer ever? Seems like a stretch. Or hyperbole.

well still has a sour smell to it. the one thing I can say is it doesn't taste as bad as it smells. I think this will be my first and last pumpkin beer I make.

If the sour is due to infection then you will eventually run out of beers to brew if you opt not to brew one type because of said infection. Find out the source of the infection, if possible, and brew again. I will put good money on the fact that you brewing a pumpkin beer is not the reason you got the infection. It could have happened to any beer, in other words.

took some to a meeting of a brew club i'm in they didn't think it was an infection but maybe something with the pumpkin pie spice in it. all in all just not a beer style i really like it sounded good but you just don't know until you try.
