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.

Bottle. Deep amber with orange highlights and a thick light golden head. Aroma is fantastically complex-- rye bread, pumpkin, crushed nettles, verbena, and black pepper. Sweet entry, again suggesting light rye bread, pumpkin, caramel, perfumey spice, with a surprisingly assertive hop bitterness finishing it all off. A really interesting beer that does not get lost in the creative process. It is not only interesting and complex, but is surprisingly drinkable, even sessionable for me.

PhillyCraft (5756) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle, pours a deep ruby brown with massive off white foamy head, thick lacing patterns. Aromas of pumpkin spice, sweet potato pie from the yams, fresh lemon juice, spicy wood, honey, saison notes, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Taste is delicious bready malts, figs, root beer, pumpkin puree, hops are very present with a nice floral flavor and aftertaste. Surprised the shit out of me.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Ar: Very complex - toasted nutmeg, bread crust, bit of citrus, salt water - very herbal. Ap: Chestnut brown, clear - medium-small light tan head with decent retention and a thin ring of lacing. T: Bread crust, light coffee, mildly sweet up front - soy and fruity peppers - some very light spicy heat - caramel and chestnut. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is dry. O: Really a stand-out fall beer - great earthy and spicy flavors with a depth of malt that matches the dept of spice flavor!

Had this from the cask at the Falling Rock release. I just hope they change the name before they sell the bottles because they misspelled Citrouille Céleste. The beer is golden-brown in colour. It has some dark rye notes, roasty pumpkin seed character. Roasty, bitter, toasty and unique beverage. A really nice, unique beer. (Yes, I’ll probably get a bottle and write better notes, but this is a good beer people should seek out).

Cask pour @ Elysian pumpkin fest ’11. Color of a dunkel. Dark reddish-brown. Smells like an Indian kitchen, like curry permanently embedded in the walls. Which is apparently a smell that some ppl find offensive but not me. Smooth palate. Spicy but then boom, has characteristic dark malts and hops like a dark IPA concoction. Mellow and balanced. Great pumpkin character adds lots of depth and complements the malts. Licorice here is welcome too. This is sooo balanced, it’s well-hopped without being hoppy and has great malt character.

GuamVice (72) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2012
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

Wow... I had a growler of this at Stone, because they wouldn’t let me try it without going on the tour and didn’t serve it at the restaurant... Great decision.... Just about finished the growler with a buddy on the way from Escondido back to Anaheim for the Ducks game, needless to say, it was a wild game.... Deep brownish reddish in color, aroma of Autumn.... Flavor is cinnamon, yams, pumpkin, spices, caramel malts..... Delicious beer...

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

Bottle [12oz]. Three breweries collaborating on a Pumpkin beer? This should be interesting. Pours a great looking deep amber-brown with an average size lasting frothy tan head. Good lacing on the glass. Nice aroma with lots there, there’s caramel malt, chocolate, pumpkin, brown sugar, light spices, citrus and more. The flavour is no slouch with sweet malt, chocolate, pumpkin, brown sugar, ginger, sarsaparilla and light piney hops. Medium bodied. What an interesting, sessionable version of the style, I loved it. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.
