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.

Gerbeer (1737) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a reddish mahogany with light head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of baconish resin, spice, and something like yam fries. Tastes similar. Typical pumpkin type beer. Pass.

gEUS (1044) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with no head. Aroma of rose water, plums, cinnamon and glühwein herbs and spices. Medium palate with warm sweetness and bits of alcohol glowth. Taste is oaky with warm spices (cinnamon, cloves, karadmom). Tasty winter warmer but lacks some kick in the (Christmas) balls.

Thebullshornbar (73) - Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2014
A pretty big beer with a some booziness offset by a decent amount of residual sugars, spices, and esters. Among those qualities, the vegetal component really stands out in the finish and not in a good way. This is only accented by the Belgium yeast which usually adds a nice tartness but only accents the off-putting vegetal notes. Overall, there is a lot going on here some good, some bad, but really disjointed.

Bottle. Murky brown liquid with small to medium light brown head. Aroma of raw sugar, spices, caramel, toffee, bread, marmalade and bread. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, raw sugar, syrup and spices. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but a bit too spiced.

Znakomite jesienne piwo, pite akurat w chlodny wieczor zimy. Srednia piana ale sliczny czerwonawo pomaranczowy kolor, na koniec metne. Slodkosc i slodycz byla tu gora ale to bardzo przyjemne doznania w tym przypadku. Nie kazde amerykanskie piwo musi pachniec i smakowac cytrusowym aromatycznym chmielem. Tu go bylo niewiele, a praktycznie niewyczuwalny, i dobrze bo dominowal syrop klonowy, dzem brzoskwiniowy, nieco powidel sliwkowych. A wszystko to rozgrzewalo w zimny wieczor za sprawa sporej dawki alkoholu. Bardzo fajne wrazenia. Finisz slodki dlugi i alkoholowy i bardzo rozgrzewajacy. Nieco dyni tez bylo w smaku, a jakze. Gorazo polecam nie tylko na chlodne wieczory jesienne, ale zwlaszcza zimowe.

Despliegue de aromas de maltas tostadas y caramelo, higos, dátiles, trazos de pulpa de naranja madura, avellana y hierbas. Entrada tostada y caramelizada. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. En el intermedio, sabores de melazas, notas de sirope de arce, azúcar moreno, leve toque fenólico y matices anisados quedan equilibrados por amargor herbáceo. Final dulce sin empalagar. El ABV se muestra como una agradable y gentil calidez, azucarada y sin asperezas, a través de la garganta. Fruta madura, como el albaricoque, en el retrogusto. 750ml (1pt 94 fl.oz.) bottle. Tripel Karmeliet Oversized Chalice glass. Pours brown in color, reddish ruby to the light. Headed by beige crown showing fairly good retention.

Flavor of molasses, maple syrup notes , brown sugar, slight phenolic touch & anice hints are balanced by herbal bitterness in the middle. Sweet no-cloying finish.

Vári Művek. Szép, sötét bíbor színe van, belseje igen zavaros, ködös, habja csak egy vékony lepedő, de az viszont végig ott is marad. Édeskésen indul az illat, erjedt gyümölcsökkel, meggy, szilva, málna, igen sok gyömbér és melasz és vegyes gyümölcslekvár. Íze is ennyire gyümölcsös, lekváros, mézes, igen fűszeres, szirupos, kis mézeskaláccsal és tökvelővel. Igen sűrű, szirupos és közepesen szénsavas. Utóíze fűszeres, süteményes, édeskés és tökös. Ízletes egy valami ez, de nem igazán sör...

Tap at Eureka! U village. Brown pour, minimal head. Pumpkin pie spice dominated the aroma and flavor alike. Sweet and boozy, classic Bruery fare. Does it suck because I hate pumpkin pie ales or does it suck because the Bruery is starting to parody itself? Yes.
