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..

Tasted 25 September 2013. From the can to my tulip.

Pours 95% clear, an enigmatic color, chestnut brown from some angles, a little reddish with light behind it, but different every way I look at it. Two fingers of off-white head. Good retention and excellent lacing.

Smell is full of yams and spices. Never had sweet potato pie, but this is what I imagine it would smell like. The sweetness is subdued, which is good, as yams could be sweet enough to overpower. The yams are clean, rich, and orange - nice. Spice-wise, I get a whole lot of nutmeg, with little complements around the edges that remind me of cloves and allspice.

Taste kinda falls flat. Not terrible, but just bland and mildly bitter. From just the taste, I don't know if I'd even guess this had yams in it. And the spices just barely poke their heads up when the taste is almost faded out. Not much here.

Feel is watery and dull, reminiscent of the taste. Medium-low carbonation (not enough), what's there is sorta fuzzy. Fades out rather quickly.

I wish I'd stopped at the smell. Nothing bad about it, and parts of it are quite good. But mostly, it's a pass.
