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.

Pours ruby red with nice head and retention. Aroma is very spicy and exotic, toffee, sweet potato, not much pumpkin, savory spice. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. even though this beer contains none of these spices. Taste is delightfully savory-spicy with tons of sweet potato and caramel, herbs, some lemon hints, some wood comes through on the finish. Body is medium-full, frothy/creamy, below avg carbonation, lush spicy exotic finish. Overall, yet another beer that tastes like absolutely nothing else out there.

Lowe1983 (1570) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Pours a dark amber color with a light-tan head. Interesting aroma with spices, pumpkin, and lemon. Flavor is pretty strong of the spices with hints of pumpkin and lemon. Very interesting brew.

Bottle pours a murky medium brown with a light tan head. Aromas are earthy, spicy, and some citrus. Taste is herbal, with cocoa and caramel overtones. There is a nice lingering bitterness and some citrus notes on the back end of this one. Nice long dry finish. Overall was not sure what to expect, and cannot really classify this one. Pretty decent overall, though.

Draught at Churchkey. Unattractive cloudy amber pour, small head. Nose and flavor are marked mostly by lemon, wood, bread, touches of pumpkin, and weird herbal notes. Really not impressed in the slightest.

12oz bottle (500th personal rating milestone). $4 from Dutch’s. Very deep amber-red color. Minimal khaki head, dots of lace. Crisp carbonation, texture is more dry. I can distinctly pick up on the roasted yams in the aroma. It isn’t powerful, but I’m thinking that it must take a whole lot of yams to produce this kind of a discernible note, which I appreciate. Roasty-sweet, good and rich. Definitely a premium beer, just not mind-blowing. It’s probably safe to say that this is indeed the best yam-beer I’ve tried, however.

VRBJG (159) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2012 Very good. Color deep dark red-ish copper with a thin white head. Smells veg/pumpkin spice. Tastes smooth and slightly crisp on the palate. Definite pumpkin/fall beer flavors...but without using the usual ingredients to achieve this.

Tmoney99 (14203) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid citrus, pumpkin and small wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Complex soft beer.

nickd717 (4560) - Sofia, BULGARIA - NOV 26, 2011
12oz bottle from Chevy Chase in DC. Dark mahogany pour with a lasting beige head and great lacing. Lots of spice on the aroma, lemongrass especially, and pumpkins. The flavor is decent, with a pumpkin and toasty malt base with lemongrass and spices, a bit overdone. Fairly smooth on the palate with average carbonation. This is ok, but they tried to do a little too much.

marcus (9992) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a pumpkin aroma. There is a very unusual complex flavor that includes pumpkin, sweet potato, lemon and unidentifiable spice tastes. It’s Thanksgiving dinner in a glass. An odd yet drinkable brew.
