interesting brew here from indeed, one of the more forward thinking minnesota breweries in my experience. this is done with yams instead of pumpkins, and has a totally different vibe than the usual fall offering. its got a way different spice profile for one, and is not sweet in the least, sorting of turning convention on its head. i thought for a moment this may have been poured from a nitro tap, as the head was creamy white. and the body was clear, with no visible carbonation there at all. it feels like that too, smooth and rich, but would really a tickle of carbonation and some thinness for a second before a righteously dry finish. uncommon to say the least. i have to imagine a lot of the flavor of the yams has been fermented out, or that they just arent that flavorful, its pretty mild on that front. the spices used dont seem to be the usual, although maybe i get a touch of cinnamon in here, its not all full of clove and allspice, and does not taste like a slice of pie. nice grain flavor too, although a little more structure wouldnt hurt it. its caramely without being sweet, and has a fresh baked warming element to it. enjoyable and highly quaffable brew from the indeed crew.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. It pours hazy deep amber under a ½ foam cap. Spicy aromas and flavors with sweet potato. The taste and aroma of the sweet potato is not dramatically different from pumpkin. The spices are a little different and not as cloying as some of the pumpkin spices used in beer. On the sweet side with very minimal bitterness.

Too many spices for me. Not my style of brew even though it's seems to be a decent quality.

Local made Minnesota, "brewed with sweet potatoes" on front of can, pumpkin sure but sweet potatoes was a first for me. Seasonal Fall beer different and drinkable.

Very unique flavor, definite sweet potato taste, easy drinking. Has a spice flavoring that could get old. good in moderation though

Sweet Yamma Jamma pours a darker bronze color with a very small lacing head. There is a sweet spicy aroma. The taste is also sweet and very spicy, mellow hints of the yams. Rather fizzy, some nice flavors. Overall its very mellow, but still enjoyable.

Appearance: A quick bubble show produces a clear copper-colored liquid; the head is decent enough and leaves a strand or two

Smell: Sweet potatoes topped by marshmallows and a hint of pie spice

Taste: Indefinite vegetal flavors up front with a bit of spicing in the rear; not much to say here

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I was expecting a bit more from Indeed but this fell short; the aroma was decent but the flavor lacked definition

Thanks, DaftPatrick, for the opportunity
