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.

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.

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.

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.

"if i don’t think of this as a pumpkin beer (listed first on the bottle) i can really dig it. this was the first of two unique beers i had tonight. color of a brown ale, body somewhere between brown and porter. very smooth, and supports the flavor well. starting colder, the lemon was front and center and at first could be mistaken for citrusy hops. at a cool temp, this beer was at it’s best, as the yams and herbal flavor and aroma really blended well with the lemon. warmer, the lemon fades, and the fenugreek takes center stage. interesting beer. misleading, though, as pumpkin is the one thing you don’t really taste or smell. too bad too, Elysian does pumpkin best."

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and earthy pumpkin with a hint of citrus and light birch. Flavor starts with bread and slight roast and has a bit of earthy fruit and citrus in the finish.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
355mL thanks to Travlr. Pours a clear light amber with a decent yellowish off-white head. Nose is wildly herbal heavy with big lavender, candied yams, and other spices that seem familiar but I can’t quite place like powerful lemon herbal tea (I see now lemon verbena and fenugreek which I am not familiar with). Good combo though- no complaints but get ready for herbal overload. Taste is surprisingly neutral with a sessionable, light palate. Not expecting something so balanced and calm given Stone and the Bruery having their hands in this. Full attenuation, long bitter lemon finish. Refreshing herbal tea and fresh garden character. I really enjoyed this but I love herbal beers like Stillwater Cellar Door etc.

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours a great deep ruby shade with 3-finger khaki head. Nose is resiny hops, some earthy and peaty notes, caramelly malt, and mild pumpkin. Tastes malty, sprucey, with multiple spices, hops, and earthy notes. The palate is pretty watery. OK, not great.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2011
12oz bottle (500th personal rating milestone). $4 from Dutch’s. Very deep amber-red color. Minimal khaki head, dots of lace. Crisp carbonation, texture is more dry. I can distinctly pick up on the roasted yams in the aroma. It isn’t powerful, but I’m thinking that it must take a whole lot of yams to produce this kind of a discernible note, which I appreciate. Roasty-sweet, good and rich. Definitely a premium beer, just not mind-blowing. It’s probably safe to say that this is indeed the best yam-beer I’ve tried, however.
