TheAlum (6812) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Sampled at GonzoIllini’s Birthday Party (Western Springs, IL). Happy Birthday, Tony! Pours a rich amber brown hue, gentle toffee haze on the edges. Frothy tannish head laces small. Aromas are funky and pumpkin hued, gentle tartness, richer funk, oak, and good sweet fall fruit. Initial is medium body, touches of potato and pumpkin, some toffee and toast, bread and gentle spice. Backend offers gentle tartness, brett, cobwebs. Some tartness, brett, funk. Solid. Odd, and I’m admittedly not a fan of the regular Autumn Maple, but the wild yeast seems muddled, a bit muddy, and lacking clarity. Meh. Certainly a pretty pour though.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from St Fun. \,,/, Pours a thin, semi-waxy amber with a small off-white head. Nose is. Yam chunks, nutmeg, earthy sugarleaves, pumpkin pulp, and funky autumn barn after a heavy rain. Flavor is a biting funk of red wine, earthy yams, light nutmeg, musty syrup, and a touch of crisp autumn leaves. Light cherry funk in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, but not much maple in there, if at all.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2012
750ml bottle. Amber brown brew with very little head. Nose of caramel malts, yams, earth, and brett. This is an interesting take on the base beer with the earthy brett flavors nicely complimenting the sweetness of the yams.

Leighton (17210) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Great beer. The sweet maple character is present, but the brett eats into it wonderfully so that the beer is never too sweet. Strong but not boozy. A very creative beer, executed well.

fletchfighters (1359) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured a deep reddish brown. Honestly a strange looking hazy color. A light brown head that quickly went away and left a small bit of lacing. S-- A sort of strange funky smell. Get barnyard mixed with some yams and maple syrup. More funky barnyard than anything else. T-- Different, very different. A lot of spices, namely cinnamon. Maple syrup, some yams and oak. First thought was a sour ale on acid. M-- A little bit of sour, a little bit of sweet. How about all over the place. Lighter feel and more carbonated that I thought it would be. Not a lot of yams but more maple syrup. A little bit of barrel but not what I expected one bit.

Johnsense (1179) - - AUG 9, 2012
Darker brown pour. Slight smoke and molasses in the aroma. Maple doesn’t come into play until; you drink it - Maple Molasses, brown sugar, roasty. Good mouthfeel, though fairly sweet and rich making this an interesting dessert beer - Good, but one glass is enough.

Sammy (10555) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle from IP with WomanCan’tSail. Lovely, complex brew. Yet one cannot drink too much of it. Dark colour with lots of thick lace. Smoke, wild boar in the aroma. The taste is sweet and rich, with molasses and some cherry and smoke.

jbeatty (1239) - New York, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle, 06/19/2012. Mahogany pour, off-white head fades to swirling pattern on the surface, thin lacing. Aroma has brown candi sugar and light spices, maple-soaked baked yam, opens into dry fruity character. Taste has dark sugar, pumpkin pie, yam, light brett funk. Medium palate, low carbonation. Nice enough, but falls short of the bourbon aged version in my books.
