Pours clear amber brown with off-white foam. Smells lightly sweet and bitter of brown sugar and tubers. Tastes bitter with hints of yam and brown sugar.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), with medicinal notes of clove, cardamom, menthol, orange peel, sage. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Well, it’s certainly overspiced. Not much "beer aroma" to it...it smells like chai tea or perhaps something you would apply to a sore to reduce inflammation. Not unpleasant exactly, but it’s strong and medicinal. The mouth experience is tart and overly bitter. It’s a novelty beer, after all...something you buy once, take a few sniffs and sips of, mutter "oh, that’s interesting", and then pour down the drain.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle from Bottle Barn. I smelled the lemon verbena and fenugreek. Straightforward support hops were present, but there was no malt backbone to support the pumpkin and yam, which I was really looking forward to. Unfortunately, Stone likely had a greater say in the making than The Bruery because they feature the hop and make thin beers. Eh...near drain pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Never tried a collaberation beer before, this was all stone brewery. Not much change, really couldn’t tel it was a pumpkin beer. Quite disappointed as far as my expectations go, but I like stone brewery products, so, this beer gets ok ratings from me.

Bottle thanks to thome50. Poured brown with ruby hues and an off white head. Aroma was pumpkin, roots, earth, dirt, and spice. Flavor was dirt, earth, spice, and a slight floral note. Body seemed kinda thin.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2011
12oz bottle, tasted last night. I figured that this one would be a winner, all three breweries are really top notch. Aromas were good, decent nutmeg and cinnamon, not overpowering, which is what I like about good pumpkin offerings. Palate is really jumbled however, front end is overly spiced and bitter and there is some sort of tartness like licking a lemon peel, just awkward. Super dry finish. Nothing I would really want again.

12 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma is very earthy and dirty, with birch bark, many spices that I could never decipher, and some grass. Flavour is very odd, as expected, with various odd spices, bark, grass, earth, dirt, pumpkin / yams, etc. Not offensive, but I can’t say it’s exactly enjoyable. Nice experiment.

Bottle from Rick’s in Alexandria. Served in a Bruery taster glass. Pours a clear cola color with a nice light tan head and some light lacing. Thin collar throughout. The nose brings forward loads and oodles and other things of spice. So much there that it’s hard to differentiate between the individual components. While this works a bit in the nose, the flavor is off the deep end. Maybe it’s just the name, but it starts to remind me of Citronella. Far overspiced and dry in the feel. I was really excited to try this one given the breweries involved, but this just really disappoints.

Bottle a friend brought to our first homebrewing session. Weird tea tasting beer. Tannins, bitter dirt, and minimal malt presence. The ingredients sounds like some bullshit herbal medicine con that’s supposed to revitalize your immune system and help you achieve inner balance throughout the morning. Then again, tea can be good when, so maybe there’s something to this scam.
