Cheers to Andy, a great and productive citizen reviewer from the left hand side of the Ferment Nation!

Stone Brewing/Elysian/Bruery
La Citrueille Celeste

Vessel and date: Shaker glass in November 2011

Appearance : Dark brick brown. Stiff white head from a hard pour into the glass.

Aroma: lemon bordering on cloying, enough spiciness and malty esters to balance it out.

Taste: Lemon and spiciness up front, followed by a touch of hop bitterness. Then the spices drop right off, leaving you with a pleasnt roasty finish. All aspects well balanced, nothing too overpowering.

Mouthfeel: Enough carbonation to make the flavors pop, body isn't so heavy that you can't drink this with a slice of pumpkin pie!

Overall: An excellent non traditional pumpkin beer. The absence of the standard spices are a relief from the deluge of clove and nutmeg. Amazingly balanced and creative; one of the best stone colllabos ever!
