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 black with a thick tan head, appears black but when held up to the light it shows a dark dark red. Herbal aroma with hints of the birch and lemon no pumpkin or yams. Taste is actually pretty bland, slight herbal and lemony bitter taste, very dissappointed.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing to skim surface. Pit fruit and earthy spice aromas. Medium bodied with earthy nuts front to back. Lasting bitter roasted veggie finish.

355mL thanks to Travlr. Pours a clear light amber with a decent yellowish off-white head. Nose is wildly herbal heavy with big lavender, candied yams, and other spices that seem familiar but I can’t quite place like powerful lemon herbal tea (I see now lemon verbena and fenugreek which I am not familiar with). Good combo though- no complaints but get ready for herbal overload. Taste is surprisingly neutral with a sessionable, light palate. Not expecting something so balanced and calm given Stone and the Bruery having their hands in this. Full attenuation, long bitter lemon finish. Refreshing herbal tea and fresh garden character. I really enjoyed this but I love herbal beers like Stillwater Cellar Door etc.

Dark and clear brown. 1-finger off-white head. Smells like a great kitchen on Thanksgiving day, minus the turkey. Flavor includes strong smokey and roasted notes, similar to a porter. Then you taste the lemony spice. This brew has vegetables and herbs, making it a real meal in a glass, yet the flavors remain balanced and restrained, leading to an end result that succeeds as a hearty winter beer and not just a novelty.

wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Tasted on 11/12/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe. Pours a nearly opaque dark amber with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to an even layer of lace. The nose is spicy and herbal with anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, lightly earthy yeast, and bread malt. The flavor is spiced and herbal with the same cinnamon, nutmeg, and malty bread bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long spiced cinnamon and nutmeg finish.

Pours dark brown with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is spicy, grassy, hay, dark fruit, floral and some caramel malt on the back end. Flavor is grassy, spicy, crisp, refreshing, wheat with a mild bitter finish. Very clean mouth feel with light carbonation. This is a really nice beer. I like it.

Bottle thanks to thome50. Poured brown with ruby hues and an off white head. Aroma was pumpkin, roots, earth, dirt, and spice. Flavor was dirt, earth, spice, and a slight floral note. Body seemed kinda thin.
