fidelis83 (1953) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Cloudy burnt orange pour with a one finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is loaded with pie spice, caramel and brown sugar, some earthy sweet potato and a nice floury toastiness. Flavor is toast, caramel and sweet potato up front, then clove-heavy pie spice, a hint of citrus twang and some dry metallic notes come in at the end. Light body creamy, slightly chalky entry, medium, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation and a slight biting metallic or acidic feel toward the finish. Pretty good, but very thin and lacking substance in the flavor department compared to the rather nice aroma.

jmohno (1075) - Iowa, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Color is a hazy murky orange, light head.Aroma is mildly sweet with some mild spices, hints of pumpkin spices. Not overwhelming and fairly subtle, the way I like pumpkins. Taste is smooth, has some slight tartness maybe from the wheat, some citrus on the end. A bit of orange.floral. Not bad really. At times there is this yeasty rubberish character that is a little off. Overall a good tasting mild pumpkin like type beer. Would go good with food. Light easy drinking, good spice and light sweet flavor.

wlajwl (3875) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Aroma is sweet potatoes/yams, spices and mild funkiness. The flavor is spices, sweet potatoes, malts, mild fruit and a mix of tangy and slight heat in the finish.

Tap - small foamy head, medium copper color, definite sweet potato aroma and flavor, mild cinnamon/clove spice, overall pretty good, wasn't sure what to expect but definitely something a little different and good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft, sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Cinnamon, nutmeg and other baking spices. Interesting concept, but nothing too special here.

On tap at the Rock Island location, pours an amberish orange with a thin white head, the aroma is of veggies like yams and spices, the flavor has a good amount of spices on the front end with a wierd finish, I really dont like sweet potatoes so its probably just me, but not a fan.

On tap at the brewpub. (2007) Delicious spices and vanilla make this beer for me. (2008) Not as good this year... not enough vanilla... still tasty and interesting though!

3fourths (8029) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Pint at the brewery. Golden and slightly hazy. Floral nose of straw, potatoes, some spices like coriander and then some sweet potpourri notes. Almost squash-like. Flavor is fresh, bready, starchy, with a light Belgian yeast spice, overall fairly mild but its noticeable. Very interesting, finishing with a floral vanilla note. Overall tasty.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2006
You could have told me that this was a pumpkin ale and I would have believed you. Its a hazy, straw colored beer sporting a creamy white head. The aroma is all spice, including allspice, as well as cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet but not cloyingly so, the flavor is all about the spices as well. Drinkable.
