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.

I rated this when it came out in Japan, maybe mid-2012 but the app I wrote it on crashed >_< Anyways, it was a bottle I picked up at Asahiya. Served in a half-pint glass. The pour was a nutty brown with a thin white head that quickly dissipated. This beer was spicy, the lemon verbana & fenugreek really came through but the pumpkin/yams and birch bark were lost in the mix. As I was expecting something more pumpkiny I was dissapointed. Still an interesting beer.

A lightly hazed dark brown ale with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, smooth molasses and dark fruits, with light ginger, orange peels, lemon touches, and licorice. In mouth, a rich bodied burned caramel malt with light licorice, treacle, light alcohol (noting the 5%), very roasted, well done.

A: Dark Brown/Reddish Hue, Passes Very Little Light, Extremely Mild Off White Head, No Lacing S: Roasty Chocolate Malts, Coffee, Mild Pumpkin, Mild Spices T: Coffee, Roasted Chocolate Malts, Mild Sweet Potato M: Poor Carbonation, Medium to Full Bodied, Bitter Overall, I was disappointed with this beer because of two reasons...A) This was a porter, not a pumpkin ale....B) Three Great Brewers and this was the best they could do. Im greatful to have had it but think it was just a weak offering.

Bottle from Spirited in Lenox MA Pours a solid dark brown with a smallish tan head that dissipates quickly. It smells like a Bruery pumpkin beer all right. Light pumpkin spice, brown sugar, a hint of caramel with a certain gourdiness to it. The flavor mimics the aroma fairly well and finishes a bit dry. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost bubbly mouthfeel. Ok beer, that I wished I’d noticed was 2 years old before I bought it.

Bottle. Clear red in color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, cinnamon, ginger and lemon. Malty and caramelly flavor with some spice before a roasty finish.

OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2013
bottle, from Chapel Hill Whole Foods. Good aroma, sweet. rootbeer, or maybe I should say birch beer. brown sugar comes to mind, dark brownish orange color, good head and lace. sweet flavor. medium body, creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. Good brew, I was ready to dump this as I held onto it for a whiel, though it was in the beer fridge the whole time. while probably not what it was fresh, it was still good, aroma was my favorite part, flavor was milder. Overall pleasant surprise for it’s age..

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottled, 2011 vintage. Poured clear, reddish-amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet toffee, caramel, and biscuity notes with accents of lemon, herbs, squash, and birch.. more and more woodsy as it warmed up. The flavor found tangy lemon and woody notes on the tip of the tongue, with warm molasses, caramel, and yams following.. mildly tangy and engaging throughout.. more herbs and dry woody character on the malty finish. Lighter-bodied with a good feel and flow on the palate.. interesting and enjoyable.

La Citrueille, a 5% abv ale, was one of the more non-standard pumpkin beers I’ve tried, with one of the more esoteric list of ingredients: yams, sugar pumpkins, fenugreek, lemon verbena, rye malt (both regular and dark), brown and honey malts, C-15 dextrine malt, birch bark in the whirlpool, New Zealand Motueka hops. It was earthy and a bit herbal, and intentionally far from the pumpkin pie spice characteristics of other pumpkin beers.
