This beer is similar to Hair of the Dog's Ruth beer, but instead of hops, several varieties of squash are used. Available only at Higgins, a Portland restaurant.

This is a big, wine style beer that is still very drinkable. Had with pizza at Tastebuds in Portland. Not a super fan of Hair of the Dog but this is my favorite to date of their stuff.

Had on tap at the brewery from Alan. Poured a clear amber color with a nice head. Very smooth mild aroma, mild spices. Very unique. I thought this was very cool.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a nice frothy off-white head. Smells floral and fruity. Malty, spicy pumpkin/squash taste with a little fruitiness. Smooth and crisp.

Growler courtesy of fishingnet. It pours coppery gold with tiny white head. The aroma is modest in strength with spices, sweetness and smooth chewy squash like veggies. The taste is sweet up front with maltiness then moving into sugary-ness and squash goodness. The malts grow a bit into the finish. Nice stuff. It seems a tad on the sweet side overall.

Thanks fishingnet for the share. Pours a hazy brown-yellow with an off-white head. Nose is some vegetable and squash, but mostly mildness and gourds. FLavor is very similar. This is a great warm-up beer since it is so mild, yet it is still enjoyable. Medium-bodied and enjoyable, but it is so incredibly mild.

Growler, courtesy fishingnet. Copper kettle color, minimum lacing and no head. Spicy vegetable notes, some citrus and pineapple, big pumpkin/squash and some grapes. Full of sweet grain and vegetal notes, nice full profile of caramel and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, crisp and quite drinkable. Unique and glad I got to try it.

Draft at HotD during earth day sale. Poured a hazy orangish/tan/golden color with tight slightly off white head that leaves some lacing on the way down. Nose is malty sweet with hints or cooked squash and some spice. Body is smooth and somewhat creamy on the feel. Nicely balanced malty earthy flavor with hints of sweetness and spice. Interesting well made brew and a bit of a departure from the rest of Alan’s beers.

Growler, thanks to fishingnet sharing. Poured a medium dark honey color. Very unusual and hard to categorize. Sweet fruity hoppy nose. Flavor was slightly fruity slightly spicy with mild alcohol notes.
