Stone Collaboration La Citrueille Celeste De Citracado

CIMG5248

One of the newest in the collaboration series by Stone is this take on a pumpkin ale. Patrick Rue from the Bruery, who is no stranger to weird ingredients and Dick Cantwell from Elysian, who specializes in pumpkin beers are on board to make this strange brew. I’ll steal the rest from Beer Advocate: “Brewed with Honey malt, Brown malt, and Rye malt, yams, pumpkin, toasted fenugreek, lemon verbena, and birch bark. Warrior hops, and New Zealand Motueka hops. “Citrouille”, French for pumpkin, intentionally misspelled in honor of Patrick Rue.”

Stats:
Pumpkin Ale. 5.0% ABV. California. Limited Release.

Dark brown color, with a bit of an off-white head.

Well, it smells like a pumpkin beer. It’s got that heavy spice thing going on with a bit of sweetness. There’s also this lemony thing going on, as well.

Mouthfeel is on the bigger side, and there’s not a ton of carbonation..

Brown sugar and pumpkin spices come through first, and it turns into a lemony citrus play, and ends on a roasted nut note. A bit of a bitter finish.

Very interesting beer. It’s basically a different take on the pumpkin ale, and has a bit more going on than the usual pumpkin spices. 90 points.
