Had a pint at 3 Squares in Maple Grove. I think this is going to be a once-yearly beer for me. I always enjoy it, but one's enough. It's easiest described as a alcoholic yam soda. It resembles beer, but it's also sort of fizzy yam juice. It's a mild, sweet starchy flavor and I'm impressed Indeed let's the yam speak for itself. But it's a bit odd, with only subtle barley behind the tuber. Give it a shot with an open mind. It's good, but a yam can only offer so much for a beer.

This is the second year of this unusual yam beer from Indeed. I really wanted to try it last year, but missed it before it was gone. I was happy to find a can at The Four Firkins this year, and might have to try to find more! Made with pulverized sweet potato and candied yams, as well as a mysterious spice mixture (per the website.)
Aroma: Sweet malt dominant, but has some earthy/musty notes. Cinnamon and ginger, but subtle.
Appearance: Deep copper color. Large off-white head that is very persistent. Small bubbles. Very clear beer.
Flavor: Very sweet initially with strong vanilla notes. I get some cinnamon at the tail end. I can actually taste the sweet potato or yams! Ends off-dry but no astringency. I get some caramelized melanoidin flavors. Body is medium, with a pleasant creamy mouthfeel.
Overall: Very well balanced. This beer reminds me of the marshmallow topped candied sweet potato casserole of my youth--in a glass! I think this is one of the more characterful beers I've tried in the quest to drink all these pumpkin/yam beers.

A nice fall seasonal...great aroma of your classic punpkin, yam, spices, etc...smells the part for sure...the taste is a little less intense and the body overall is thin and watery which takes away slightly from the experience...
This is a good beer but falls short of greatness....glad I got a sixer but that is good for this year...I'll revisit next year for sure..
