COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yams, sugar pumpkins, fenugreek, lemon verbena all made their way into this crazy pumpkin collaboration. There was rye malt (both regular and dark), brown and honey malts, and some C-15 dextrine malt. They also put birch bark in the whirlpool–why not? It’s woodsy and sort of autumnal, after all. La Citrueille was finished with New Zealand Motueka hops. And if you were wondering, the name means the heavenly pumpkin of Citricado, which is the street the Stone digs are on.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear dark red-orange color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spicy, earthy, herbal and vegetal notes. The taste is spices, almost curry-like, squash, herbal notes and faint caramel malts. Medium bodied. Interesting.

daknole (10281) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Cloudy brownish pour, creamy head. Loads of spices in the nose, roasted pumpkin, candi sugar, syrup and some gingery notes. Sweet flavor, spicy, yeast, tons goin on in this one and in a pretty good way. Tap at the Bruery Provisions on my crazy birthday San Diego trip with Storminorman.

adnielsen (10089) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle @ home. Cloudy brown appearance with a light brown head. Citrusy, potpourri, air freshener, a touch toasty malty, hugely floral aroma. Toasty pumpkin, lemon citrusy, big floral flavor. Floral, pumpkin aftertaste. Weird beer- I won’t be drinking any more than this one but it isn’t all that bad.

Sammy (9563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
Something different. The pumpkin was well in the secondary of taste to the herbs and slight bitterness and woodiness. I liked it and could drink this anytime, particular at this level of sessionability.

Dogbrick (9455) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Sample at Bruery Provisions. This beer is a clear chestnut color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates quickly. Short strings of lace on the glass. Aroma of ginger, citrus and roasted malt. Light body with flavors of herbs, lemon and sweet malt. The finish is mildly spiced with a short citrus aftertaste. More or less average overall.
