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.

Pours a golden orange with a two finger head. Aromas of pumpkins, yams, nutmeg, lemon zest and dough. Initial taste is smooth and creamy with a nice pumpkin pie taste to it. Has a nice Belgian style flavor that comes out in the middle and finishes with a nice sweet malty bite. Pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is kinda sticky but not too bad. Definitely worth a try if you can still find it.

Pours a reddish brown color. Has notes of spices in the aroma. Taste has notes of spices, pumpkin and cinnamon. I noticed more taste in the inital swallow. However, the more i drank, the more taste seemed to dissipate and become watered down.

Serving type: bottle Aroma: Smells mostly bready with a hint of spice and fig. Smells more like an English bitter to me. The Lemon verbena kicks in as it gets warmer. Appearance: Deep ruby brown. Medium head with a slight bit of lacing. Taste: starts with tastes of dark fruit, sweet, then moves to a little chalkiness, then to bitter and slightly tart after taste with not much lingerjng sweetness. Almost refreshing which is not expected from a darker beer. Overall: Very cool/unique purchase. Was expecting Pumpkin spice beer and got none of that, although stil pleased. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really unusual, but the spice background is great. You can actually smell and taste the Fenugreek. -- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone.

Not exactly my cup of tea but not bad. Slight malt up front with a dark hoppy finish. A tad thin in the middle. I think some of the additions to this could have been more up front making a WOW niche beer instead of a flavoried beer with an interesting label. It is an enjoyable beverage, one that has a place in a fall festival. This is one to keep in the cellar and bring out to freak people out.

Aroma is complex and rich. Toasted nutmeg, fig, brown sugar, maple syrup, fresh earth, even some rhubarb. Pours deep burgundy with a weaker head. Fine balance of sweet and sour, carbonation okay to weak with a sticky texture. Overall, it missed my expectations. That nose sets you up for flavor that doesn’t match. Still, glad I tried it. Always like to experience Stone’s collaborations.

Just average. A bit of hops to it, a little spice. Nice color and head but just average overall... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle served in a pint glass. Dull pumpkin spice scent with a bit of smoke in the background.Pours a dark chestnut brown with a cream colored head that thinned out to a light ring. Upfront the pumpkin spices are noticable but then a smokey/roasty/toasty flavor kicks in with a dry, peppery hop finish. It’s got a medium body with good carbonation making it go down smooth and easy. This is a different kind of pumpkin beer that I enjoy drinking.

Yikes! Gave this Stone combo a shot since most of these are quite nice. This one came up short, it was like a bitter flower exploded in my mouth. Won’t get a second one of these.
