COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is made in the pumpkin beer tradition, except instead of pumpkins we used yams, and lots of them! A big Belgian-style brown ale of 10% ABV, this one is bringing pumpkin beers (or yam beers) into new territory.

Sampled @ Zeebra 2014. Salmaniak taste, slightly. Peachy, pumpkin as well. Remarkable beer, different than most other beers at the festival. Taste lacks a certain depth, it’s only the pumpkins, no layers in it.

Bottle from Homer... Thanks?? Pours amber. Smells like a cranberry lambic. Is that right? Totally taste like a cranberry sour. No way this is a yam beer, maybe yam covered in lacto, mixed with Brett and cat piss. Better luck next time, will need to try as designed.

olio (6138) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
75 cl bottle.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma of spices, malts, pumpkin, some wooden notes and caramel. Flavor of yams, malts, caramel, spices and some syrup. A bit sticky sweet palate. A bit too spicy for my expectations.

750 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a red hue. Aroma of nutmeg, red berries, pumpkin and grass. Flavour of sweet caramel, nutmeg, grass, cinnamon and some wooden notes. Very interesting berryish notes. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable spiciness all the way.

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home
Aroma is somewhat spicy and sweet with maple syrup(!). Also some root beer tones. Flavour is spicy with syrupy tones, some caramel and herbal tones. Also some toffee candy. I’ve waited for a long to tick this one – and after all that this was a disappointment. Too spicy, like an imperial pumpkin ale.

tiong (3723) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
750ml bottle

Pours dark reddish orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of spices, sweet caramel, toffee, syrup, ripe fruits and berries. Taste is sweet, sticky and stuffy with loads of caramel, syrup, ripe fruits, berries and toffee. Finish is stuffy, sticky and sweet with loads of syrup, ripe fruits and caramel notes. Way too sweet for my taste.
