BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States
thebruery.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

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.

I just had a cellared version and can say, it needs time. With a little over a year on it it is incredible. I get a flavor that reminds me of melted Christmas cookies with a dubbel as the base. If it counts as a pumpkin beer it's be my favorite.

This beer pours a slightly cloudy ruby brown with a large head. The aroma presents molasses, cooked banana, clove, candied orange peel, and brown sugar. The flavor features butterscotch, clove, banana, molasses, a hint of maple, and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is full, almost syrupy. Overall this is definitely a dessert beer, but the solid, balanced flavor are very pleasant - the Belgian yeast notes cut through the brown sugar and molasses, but the maple presence coul dbe much greater. This is a good beer, but not great,

In my opinion, one of the better fall (pumpkin/yam) beers out there.
