3.5/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into my small brandy snifter. No born on or best by date, only says september 2011 and not to age it. Ok, i wont.

A- Vigorous pour renders some fizzy bubbles that pop up and barely form a head, dissipates fast, just some little bubbles in clusters sit on top. When loking at the glass, its dark brown in color and rather dull but when held to the light, its a magnificant ruby red color that is qute pleasing.

S- Has that very Stone smell to it the way all dogfish beers have that same smell about them. Getting strong maple syrup, candied yams, cinnamon, pumpkin pie fresh from the oven, bisciuts. This reminds me of Thanksgiving. As the beer wars, you get the citrus/lemon aromas. Funny, there is definately a weird aroma coming from the beer that reminded me of a forest, then after closer inspection of the bottle... "birch bark". Boom. Thats it...

T- Sweet on the palate up front, you really get the pumpkin and yams here, moving mid palate is where the lemon and hop profile come in and hang around until you gulp the beer down. After a swig, you are left with an aftertaste that is reminiscent of swallowing pumpkn pie. No sharp metalic or unpleasant aftertaste.

M- I think this is where the beer falls short personally. Thin, overcarbonated (despice the lack of bubbles/head)and a little dissapointing honestly. Wish they would up the abv and give it a little more body with some more specialty malts.

O- Another great collab beer from stone. Dont really like pumpkin beers all that much but this is great.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark brown, with red highlights. A good sized khaki head quickly shrank to a ring to leave some nice lacing.

Smell is of roasted sweet potatoes and spice, with some malt.

Taste is earthy roasted veggies. Don't get much pumpkin, unless that's it. Has a bitter veggie after taste.

Feels nice, easy to drink almost creamy for such a thin, light ale.

Kind of a strange one, I expected some pumpkin spice, but after reading the label, they didn't use any traditional ones, so just the veggies are present here, weird. I wouldn't turn it down, but I won't be buying this again.

DOA

A: Pours a dark mahogany with a finger of khaki head that fades into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S: Loads of brown sugar, pumpkin, and yam aromas in this with some pumpkin spices. Caramelized vanilla also are very present along with a faint cocoa aroma. Smells great.

T: Some light roasted malt and pumpkin spice flavors at first. There are some vanilla, nut, and pumpkin notes with a lightly bitter note.

M: Medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is a little watery.

O: An alright beer. It smells great, but the flavor is a relative letdown.

12oz bottle. Served in a tulip.

Pours a clear, but dark ruby red with a finger and a half of off-white foam. Settles to a creamy ring and a small island. Moderate bits of lacing.

Spices hit you first in the aroma. I don't know my fenugreek from my verbena, but I do know birch and get a healthy bit of that along with peppery notes. Maybe a touch of yam, a hint of malt and a typical stone hop profile.

Flavor is extremely dry with no real sweetness to be found. Quite similar to the nose with a presence of birch and some earthy chewy vegetable. Lemony middle. OK, maybe a hint of sweetness here. Finish has a real herbal bitterness which I assume comes from the fenuverb-whatchamacallit ingredients. I have to say, after several sips, this flavor is really growing on me.

Medium-light bodied with spritzy sharp carbonation. Works well.

While this isn't a beer I would drink a lot of, it's definitely unique and exactly what a collaboration beer should be. Bonus points for a rare "low" ABV as well.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Comes out sort of a cola brown color. Light brown to amber colored highlights. Off white to tan colored head, good sized bubbles and decent lacing. Looks good, like a darker pumpkin ale.

Smells pretty good, just doesn't really smell like a pumpkin ale all that much. Plenty malty, all sweet. Sort of a brown honey and a sweet grain with a hint of lemon grass. Slight natural earthy pumpkin at the end. Pretty good, but nothing about it is strong.

Taste is pretty much on par with the smell, maybe a little better. Again with the good brown malts with honey. Hops are present slightly citrus and bitter wood. Sort of a pumpkin aftertaste, not quite as earthy as the smell.

Decent mouthfeel, not too clean, light bodied and a decent carbonation level. Plenty drinkable though. Alright beer, but nothing really special about it, and nothing is very strong. Glad I did in fact try it though. Extra from jbtice0315.

Bought a 12 Fl. Oz. bottle of this from Bruisin' Ales in Asheville, NC for $4.00. Poured from the branded bottle w/ "Collaboration" & the three brewers on the front into a 16oz Au Naturale Organic Blonde Pint Glass. Has "Stone Collaborations 2011" & "Drink Fresh, Do Not Age" on the back, but no date! How should I figure this?

This is Review #600 for me and I picked this beer because after wanting this "Pumpkin" ale all season and being a huge fan of this style, I found this in one of my favorite towns now, Asheville, NC, and decided to pop it in Alta, ID on a ski trip with friends. Excited to enjoy!

Aroma- Very sweet, malty, and a very light pumpkin aroma. Some yams come up also. Lets see what happens with the taste now...

Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that dies fairly quickly. Has a darkest amber colored body with a clear background. Leaves light lacing behind but doesn't stick.

Flavor- Strong malt and light caramel flavor from the beginning. Pumpkin then picks up and yams as well. A light-medium hop flavor hits at the end with the same amount of bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and leaves good pumpkin and spice on the palate.

Overall Impression- For this type of collaboration, I wasn't too impressed... Expected MUCH more but still was a good example of the style. Wouldn't have again but suggest you try if available.

Interesting collaboration between Stone, Elysian and The Bruery. The ingredients list is unorthodox.

Pours a nice burgundy hue with a thin head into my glass. I'm not really sure if it's a pumpkin ale.

Pumpkin, yams, candi sugar and a bit of birch stand out immediately in the nose. I've never had fenugreek so can't comment.

Interesting flavors upfront. How to describe it? Bitter and "rooty" upfront with a good dose of burnt sugar, birch and maybe a touch of the lemon verbena. Unorthodox. Not a pumpkin ale. I like the addition of birch bark.

The birch bark is all that lingers at the back of my throat. Not much else is there.

I'm torn between disdain and praise for this ale. On one hand, it's an excellent attempt at using non-traditional ingredients. On the other hand, it's so "different" that I can see many pouring it down the drain. I love it enough that I'm going to finish it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance is a clear dark brown with a small head. Good lacing however clinging to the sides of the glass.

Aroma has a definite herb character but it's good. Some lemon in there along with a hop aroma reminiscent of Stone. Some roasted malt is detectable as well.

Really a lot going on here in terms of taste. The spicy/herb dominates but along with that is pumpkin and roasted malt that is almost coffee-like. The lemon shows itself towards the finish. Good assertive bitterness as well. Mouthfeel is just a little thin, I feel.

I was sort of worried about this beer but now I wish I would have gotten another one. A pretty excellent beer and perfect for fall.

My wife got this for me for Christmas along with some other beers.

Appearance- dark color like cola, almost no head which dissipated immediately

Smell- herbal smell which I assume is the fennegreek

Taste- herbal flavor which must be fennegreek, no pumpkin flavor at all, a very tiny bit of lemon

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, fair amount of carbonation

Drinkability- very interesting, I would like to drink it again.

Pours a fairly dark amber/brown color with a small off-white head. An intensely herbal aroma to this, which I would imagine is the fenugreek. There's a bit of a lemon aroma to it, which is actually sort of nice. Not much else to it except for those two dominating smells, though. The flavor has a bit of roasted malt flavor, maybe a hint of coffee, to go along with all of the herbaceousness. There is still a little bit of lemon on the finish. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Not really my favorite.

Grabbed this at Table and Vine in MA. Wish I lived closer.

12oz bottle to pint glass

Pours a nice mahogany color. Beige 2 finger head sticks around for a minute leaving a good lacing behind.

Smell is very malt forward. Smells really boozey for a 5% brew. Reminds me of a double brown ale.

Wow, ok this is definitely an interesting beer. The rye malt and brown malt are the first thing I taste. In the middle the yam, pumpkin and lemon versena all blend together which produces an interesting yet subtle sweetness. There's also a slight bitterness(very slight) which I think is more the lemon versena than a hop bitterness. This goes down easy and tastes like a really good brown ale to me. As time passes and I continue to drink the lemon starts to stand out more while the yam and pumpkin ride underneath keeping the lemon in check. This is damn good.

It has a medium mouthfeel with a moderate carbonation.

I didn't know what to expect from this brew. After reading the label I obviously knew this wouldn't be a traditional pumpkin ale.
It's without a doubt a very interesting offering and I'm thinking some reviewers will give this a lower score based on the fact that it's labeled "pumpkin ale" yet doesn't really fit into that category traditionally. I think this is what the craft is all about though and I love how these 3 respected breweries aren't concerned with staying in the box. If this was labeled "brown ale" or even "amber ale" I believe this one would be rated much higher. Also if this brew was more readily available and cheaper than $4 a 12oz bottle I'd be buying it by the case. Surely a winner in my book.

Poured in to a tulip. Seemed a bit on the dark side of most pumpkin ales, but it was a dark brown/ruby colored body. Dense, tan head with good lacing.

Aroma was interesting but inviting. Lemon and fennegreek really came forward. Some burnt sugar sweetness with a light malty sweetness. Some hints of raisin as well. Some caramel as well.

Flavor didn't have much in the way of pumpkin, but it was really tasty. Again, fennegreek and lemon came through the strongest for me. Some light chocolate notes with a burnt sugar sweetness. Mild, lemony bitterness in the finish. A bit of maple flavor with some moderate sweetness and caramel. Very much different than your typical pumpkin spices, but really enjoyable.

Mouthfeel was medium body, medium carb and a light finish. Drinks like the 5% brew it is.

Overall its really enjoyable and flavors are great. Very different than your typical pumpkin ale.

On tap at Dutch's in East Hyde Park

Dark amber in color with maybe a centimeter in white head.

Some toffee and dark bready characteristics in the nose.

Less body than I anticipated. Decent dark bread notes with some darker caramel bits coming through. More spice than I was expecting that finished with lemon and maybe a hint of the yams mentioned. Still searching for the pumpkin.

I really wasn't sure what to make of this but thought on tap that it was worth a shot. This beer really left me questioning what it was going for. Brown ale? Pumpkin ale? Spiced ale? I am still not sure. Nothing wrong with it but really nothing spot on.

Served in a tulip at Flanny’s.

Deep burgundy. Honey-amber at edges, deeper maroon as it nears the top. Great clarity, and a beautiful color. The brew’s topped by a half-finger of silky mocha foam that descends to a thick top layer, leaving behind walls of furry lace.

In the nose: nuts, coffee, hops and peanuts. Most noticeable is the aroma of roasted peanuts, followed by bread and medium roast coffee, then backed by hints of pumpkin and juicy citrus hops. Great balance and a very interesting aroma.

Things seem less well-put-together in the flavor, where the nuts have been replaced by hops. Citrus leads, with orange peel and a touch of dank. In the background, I get the lightest hints of burnt bread mixed with fruity, tangy pumpkin. Subtle toasted bread rolls in a while after the swallow.

Fairly high, pinching carbonation. The body's a bit thin and breaks into a touch of fizz as it moves. Very clean finish.

La Citrueille Celeste De Citracado is hard to say — I literally ordered it by telling the server “I’ll have the one that’s hard to pronounce,” — but it’s a decent amber. However, I don't get enough from the myriad ingredients used to make it, at least in flavor.

Poured vigorously from a bottle (12oz) into a snifter.

A: Pours a dark ruby/amber/brown color, light passes at edges of light shining beautiful ruby hues. Head was about 1 1/2 fingers worth of cream colored head which quickly dissipates leaving little to no traces of lacing. Carbonation isn't big, although once opening the bottle a good, "psshh" was heard.

S: Nose is filled by spicy pumpkin flesh, some light citrus, and a good amount of malts. In the background is some caramel sweetness as well, but the spices really balance and keep all the notes in check.

T: Front of the tongue is fleshy pumpkin, some spices, but a lot milder than the nose. Then, it's followed by some bittering hops, and finished clean and malty.

M: Light/medium bodied; clean and crisp, some cracker-like maltiness, and light carbonation. Very quaffable at 5%. I wish I had a keg of this for Thanksgiving dinner.

Bubbly concrete-ish/eggshell colored head over a cola colored beer. Lace drips down the glass like condensation down a shower door.

Smells like bourbon at first whiff? Once it's in the glass it smells like wet, rotting log. I guess I could say it smells like 'tater skin but I'm pretty sure that's the power of suggestion talking. Carob chip bitter.

Bitter and woody it's certainly different. Not barrel aged woody but more wet, rotting log woody. Yammy? Lil' swampy in back.

I have an appreciation for mung beans, trail running, and all things earthy. For those less inclined towards dirt and wood I could see this being a stinker.

Bottle from AJ's Fine Foods in on North Central in Phoenix. 12oz bottle into a chalice.

Poured mahogany with purple and violet shades, an almost opaque body. A finger of cream coloured head, with some light retention and lacing. Nose has some subtle candied pumpkin and yam notes, and interesting lemon/lime quality (from the lemon verbena?) and a somewhat pungent spice quality. A mint characteristic is there too, providing a refreshing and herbal quality. Certainly unique and intriguing. Taste has a toasty/roasty seed and herbal characteristic, less pumpkin and more subtle yam notes - but appear more raw in flavour. More lemon and herbal notes, with a substantial bitterness in the finish. Fairly light body that I think could've been bigger (considering some of the breweries involved in the collab.), with a medium light carbonation. Interesting beer, but the size of this beer could've improved the complexity of the body and overall desirability of this beer in my opinion.

A- Pours a really dark reddish brown color with a nice tan head. Head is like a layer of foam and leaves some nice layered lacing.

S- Smell is quite odd. Picking up quite a bit of spices and an odd herbal smell. A touch of roasted malts, rye and not much else.

T- Taste is different for sure. Quite a bit of rye, spices and medicine like. Nothing really like other pumpkin beers I've had.

M- Medium in both body and carbonation.

O- Very different for sure. Not a huge fan of this one.

A: This poured a clear dark mahogany, with moderate light tan head.
S: It smelled like earthy copper and fresh oak, with some roasted barley and light caramel.
T: It tasted like fennel seed and earthy birch wood, with copper and roasted barley, and a little light caramel and other mixed herbs and spices. It had a clean and herbacious aftertaste.
M: It was watery with a little carbonation. Light body.
D: This beer didn't really have any noticeable pumpkin. The scent and taste were interesting, but not delicious. The body was pretty weak too. It was easy enough to drink, but ultimately this was just another collaboration that's a whole lot of nothing. It's trying to be too many different things, and ends up with no real identity of its own. Skip this beer.

12oz. bottle poured into a nonic.

(A)- Pours a deep chestnut brown color that produced some tan bubbles and lace.

(S)- A really nice array of fragrant pumpkin and rustic-like spices. Has an underlying subtle richness to it.

(T)- Not quite as nice as the smell, but still good. Has a potent wood/bark note that carries through the entire sip/swallow. Bits of spice with very very subtle pumpkin.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A decent balance, but a bit too much birch bark in this.

(D)- Overall, an intriguing beer, but a bit one dimensional flavor-wise.

The label on the bottle says not to age; who am I to argue? the bottle is about 8 to 10 weeks old at this point, so I figure it's time. Consumed on December 31, 2011.

Beer pours a brilliantly clear deep amber/cola brown. A two finger head colored somewhere between light tan and off-white forms and subsides gracefully to a beer-covering skin that leaves might nice sheeting on the glass.

Aroma has very little of the expected pumpkin; it's a subtle note, mixed with cola, pecan and even a touch of coffee. Reminds me of a nut brown ale more than anything else. Ever so slightly soapy as well.

Flavor is likewise more like a light brown ale than a pumpkin patch. In fact, I don't even taste any pumpkin at all. Some notable bitterness at the end along with a slightly dry mouthfeel. Nutty notes. A hit of mint. Pretty restrained, especially considering who the breweries involved are. Hard to rate: as a pumpkin beer, it's a fail. As a brown ale, it's acceptable but not outstanding.

Mouthfeel is slightly thick and a bit creamy with that touch of astringency at the end.

Overall, it's certainly drinkable but not notable.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. This beer looks like it should be interesting.

Appearance: rich amber-brown hue with a hazeless body. Head poured a solid finger of frothy tan foam, but it doesn't have great retention. Very autumnal-looking.

Smell: mild malty aroma with a hint of sweet spices and pumpkin. There's a touch of roast to the aroma that makes me think of a porter more than a pumpkin ale. Not bad, but a bit mild.

Taste: the fenugreek makes this tastes like it belongs in an Indian restaurant. The spices used in this beer are much more savory than I normally encounter in pumpkin beers; personally, I like squash better in a savory context than a sweet one. This is easily among my favorite-tasting pumpkin beers.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent level of carbonation. Not exactly creamy, but interesting.

Overall: this beer is a bit experimental but I think the experiment is a success. It has piqued my interest in trying other fenugreek beers -- I may even brew one myself.

12oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A - Pours an amber tinted brown with medium clarity and a finger of khacki head that is a bit foamy, dies within 30 seconds down to the surface leaving a residual foamy collar and lacing on the glass.

S - Roasty and earthy on the nose, hints of vanilla and coffee, roastiness. Not really grabbing any pumpkin/yamminess. Mild hoppy bitterness. Not at all what I was expecting out of this beer.

T - Hmm, gonna have to think about this...quite a mix of flavors, some that are going to be tough to identify. At the base, I'm still getting the basics I found in the aroma - roasted malts, bits of coffee, sweet vanilla, and earthy hops. Now for the new stuff - spicy/herbal with citrus, menthol, cloves, lemons, mint and some others I can't place to describe. Spices don't overpower...really complement pretty well and add an extra layer to a good but not mind blowing base beer.

M - Medium bodied with a mid-level prickly carbonation. Roasty overall with an herbal/spicy overtone that is just noticeable (in a good way).

O - Better than I expected. I'd say this is a pretty decent brown ale at the base with some nuanced spices to complement the beer. Not a pumpkin beer the way you'd think of it - no pumpkin pie spices. This is a solid beer worth giving a shot.

Poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a pretty dark brown color. When held up to the light it is slightly transparent and I can see the carbonation bubbles that lead to a very small, less than one finger head. The small head that appears is a very light brown to tan color and doesn't leave much lace.

Smell is....well...interesting. It kind of smells like my mother in laws glazed ham at Christmas time. There is a sweet syrupy smell, maybe brown sugar, and really... like the ham glaze. Honey, smoke.

Taste is really good. This is very unique but pulls together quite nicely. Sweet tastes of the yams and some maple syrup, there is also some honey tastes too. I think I should say that I am getting some cooked (or fried) pork fat. I really like this.

Mouth is thin and the carbonation is medium. Body is delicate and the finish is on the dry side.

Overall I really enjoyed this. I like how all of the other "pumpkin" beers try to taste like pumpkin pie, but never really do. This one tries to taste like the fall or the fall holidays and really does. The smell and taste really does nail the smells and tastes I get from the in-laws house this time of year. If you love the fall and the holidays this is a must get.

Pours a deep amber to brown in color with a light tan head. In the aroma, ginger and lemon like citrus. In the taste, cinnamon, rye, a nice spice and a bit woody too. A spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry spice in the aftertaste. Mild spice and woody, it is probably the most interesting pumpkin beer I have ever had.
