Style: Fruit and Field Beer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the "pumpkin" beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening.

Fantastic fall beer. Imperial brown ale base spiced with cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar, maple syrup. Sweetness of the yams also comes through. Low bitterness, but enough to balance out the sweetness. Far better than any pumpkin beer I've had.

Pours a murky dark brown with a very thick light tan head. Head recedes slowly and leaves virtually no lacing. The aroma is cinnamon, maple syrup, cloves, and brown sugar. Flavor follows the nose, pretty sweet but not cloyingly so. Feel is smooth and a little dry. Overall a drinkable beer but not anything special.

This beer was poured from a 750 ml. bottle into a tulip glass. The brew pours out extremely murky and ends up being almost the exact same color as a yam or sweet potato. Has a half finger of creamy, light tan crown. I'm usually not too big into this style of beers but this is by far the best I've had from the category. The balance and mix of all the flavors and spices really worked to make it great. I think a lot of it has to do with the addition of molasses and maple syrup to tame the other spices while still letting you know that they are there.

I opened this in the sink, because I've been gushed at before by some Bruery beers. This one was like a volcanic eruption.
When things settled down, the beer turned out to be a golden brown color. There was a medium-sized tan head with good retention.
It had a sweet potato and maple syrup aroma. There was a hint of spice.
Spice was much more prominent in the taste. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet potato and maple syrup.
Medium-bodied, easy to drink.

Pours a murky ocher color with a finger's worth of khaki foam that settles rapidly. Very mild aroma smells of tart cherries with a touch of alcohol and little else.

The taste is much sweeter than the nose would suggest, yielding brown sugar and caramel along with a blend of pumpkin pie grade spices. Belgian yeast lends a fruity underpinning, while very mellow, warming alcohol adds a touch of heat in the finish. Medium body and high carbonation make for a smooth, luscious mouthfeel.

Overall, this is a decent Belgian style ale that strays from the typical Belgian brown with its overt sweetness that comes across a little too heavy-handed for my tastes.

A: Clear amber/orange pour. Not too much head.
S: Clove, yams (too much), cinnamon, maple.
T: Actually really close to the nose, but not as pleasing
M: Medium body, slightly coating. Little low on carb.
O: I am not a huge fan of pumpkin beers, and maybe I let this ago for too long, but it was 'meh' as far as Bruery beers go.
