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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23. Pours murky brown with tan wave. Aroma of fenugreek, yam, sweet spices and some anise. Malty and tad dry taste, potato and wood bark. Light body, bonefire-baked potato finish. Good.

DSG (13957) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23. Deep red color. Aroma of a bit of pumpkin, verbena and some more spices, malt and hints of chocolate. Sweetish flavor with malt, some pumpkin, caramel, spices and herbs and a bit of roasty notes. Finishes drier. Medium-bodied. Not bad and pretty interesting.

Clear dark red - brown beer. Good pale tan head. Light fresh crispy palate. A refreshing strong citrus is a suprise coming off a dark beer! Lemongrass and a touch of lime. A cream - soda kinda cream vanilla. Minerals. Semi dry finish. Refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
12oz bottle pours clear brown with ruby red hues and a semi loose tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a little bit of dark roasted malts and coffee flowing into ginger-ish sort of herbal notes and a berry sensation. The taste moves from moderately roasted malts and then to a bit of berry, cherry and raisin fruitiness. Above that is a sort of spicy woodnote and maybe some ginger root. At times it seems a little chocolate like and coconut cut with very thin lemon peel like notes. Pretty nice but it seems to struggle to hold all of the flavors together.

Another year old bottle sitting at Ryan and Casey Liquors Greenfield, MA. Paid $3.75 for a 12 oz. bottle. Got it because I missed it when originally released. Pours a dark brown color with no head at all. Aroma is very herbal with ginger, sweet potato and the odd spices that that bottle speaks of. Similar to a pumpkin beer, yet has a sweet potato yam flavor without question. Not bad for the age. I would say this may have diminished just a bit after all this time. Glad I had a chance to try it.

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; a fairly opaque brownish-black with fluffy light neigh head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of pumpkin, spices, and citrus. Tastes like it smells with an. Average mouthfeel. Interesting, and not in a bad way.

Bottle - Toasted malts, chocolate and spices. Complex but sweet and pleasant nose much like gingerbread. Dark brown and clear with a off white head. Pumpkin, molasses and gingerbread. Mellow bitterness, a great dark pumpkin beer.

Bottle from Stone Brewing in South Park: Poured a dark amber hue with a tiny formation of foam head. The aroma was phenomenal with a pure scent of herbs perhaps sage, and has an abundant aroma of roast coffee bean or strong fragrant black tea. As for the drink, a smooth and well balanced blend of unknown flavors probably due to the foreign ingredients such as fenugreek, lemon verbena, and birch bark really make this an easily quaffable beer yet a flavorful and memorable beer recipe. Although, it does come across as a little watery in the finish, it still leaves behind a roasted aftertaste and in itself is a truly unique concept.
