Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

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.

ABV: 10%, IBU: 25, SRM: 15, Release: Fall

From the local watering hole on tap. Pub Pint.

One taste and I ordered a growler to go.

It was like I walked into our local apple orchard store and someone hit me in the face with a pumpkin pie and dozen apple crisp donuts. Then told me it wasn't made from either.

Not a big fan of the fruit and veggie beers. I was really surprised at how well this beer was done. Pumpkin, sweet potato, ginger, brown sugar, maple all the wonderful smells of fall.

A must have for anyone who likes the pumpkin style beers, perfect for autumn.

Served on tap into a snifter

A- Poured a really intense dark orange brown color reminiscent of pumpkin pie with off-white soapy head that left a little bit of spotty lace.

S- Huge aroma of ginger, allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, and sweet potato. This smells like Thanksgiving.

T- Big ginger notes, allspice, some nutmeg, big pumpkin pie and sweet potato notes, some maple sweetness, spicy belgian yeast notes, and pie crust flavor. Moderate bitterness on the finish that I think cuts the sweetness very well.

M- Very dry, some nice alcohol warming, pretty smooth, and soft carbonation. This goes down so easy for 10% ABV.

O- While not properly a pumpkin beer this is the best pumpkin (or yam) beer I have ever had. Very balanced flavor profile between the spices, sweetness from the yams and maple syrup, and bitterness. Very complex and easy to drink.
