3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Spicy on the nose, lemon and citrus, bright pith, caramel. Malty, bitter, a rather weird bitterness. Toast and a bit of chocolate, herbal bitterness and a touch of quinine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
