Per menu description: a Belgian ale brewed with pumpkins and yams, aged in am Andrew Murray Straggling wine barrel.
Growler served slightly chilled into a small tulip.
Pump Up The Yams (great name, by the way) is a redish brown amber color with thin white head.
Aroma slightly sweet with some red wine character overlying the brown ale malt base.
Flavor is really surprisingly nice with very good integration of pumpkins and red wine. Sounds questionable but really works.
Mouthfeel is smooth and week carbonated.
Overall a surprisingly enjoyable barrel aged vegetable ale.

a clever brew, with the pumpkin and spice component being more dominant than any yam flavor, although the sugars are there for sure. love the bourbony finish on this, very alcoholic and mellow, oaky and earthy, a perfect way to wrap up a beer brewed with squash and root vegetable. the dark caramel color is a product of some sweeter roasty malts that fill in the middle with a nice bready depth and velvety texture. this is an easy drinking beer as a result, despite its high abv and complex flavors that need to be slowly disected to be understood. not quite enough carbonation on this, but that contributes to its silky feel, and i really wouldnt change much about this. i have not had their turnip the beets yet, but this one makes me want to try that one even more. great brew.
