Bottle. I liked this version of Autumn Maple better than the normal version. It was less sweet and the earthy yam flavor seemed more pronounced to me. Really good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle sharing during AZRBWG. Pour is hazy burnt caramel with a white head. Aroma shows notes of belgian waffles, yam, pineapple, nutmeg, maple, vanilla, and a good dose of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of oak, molasses, and some underlying vegetal character.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bruery autumn maple with Brett. 750ml bottle... Pours a hazy caramel
toffee brown with a thin soapy white head... Pumpkin, brett and pineapple
upfront, obviously bretted out with an earthy finish... Semi-tart yet
sweet bretted pineapple notes with coinciding sweet maple notes. Nice
flavor but carbonation is close to null with a medium body. Much
needed carbonation is absent and was needed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2010 Location: Bottle at Max and Andyís Fantasy Tasting, 5/1/10
Aroma: Good amount of brett on the nose (not a surprise) with some earth, vegetation, spice, and caramel
Appearance: Poured a cloudy brown color with a white head
Flavor: The taste is also malty, with some funk, earth, and spice, much like the nose
Palate: The carbonation is rather high, with a medium body, and a mostly clean feel
Really cool that I got to try this beer. This one was really rather weird. About a year old, and that time was probably a good thing. Wow. I canít think of a better description then strange...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
growler at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting - Pours hazy brown/orange. Arouma is very unusual and interesting pumpkin pie and cinnamon. The taste isnít as forward, though. Maple, peppery and dry. Of course, plenty of funkiness. Finishes dry, so Iím not getting as much maple as I want. Very interesting and unique beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting. Bottle shared by Al B! Given to him by the head brewer at the Bruery over 1 year ago. Pours a slight hazy deep woody amber with a nice lingering head. Aroma is nice yams, earth, and brett funk (although the brett is still restrained and not out of controll)- spicy phenols, earthy, fall leafpile, and marshmellow vanilla notes with some wood. Flavor is caramel, toffee, light burnt notes, woody, earth and brett funk with still quite a bit of starchy yam going on. Finish is still not dried out completely and the brett still has some work to do- smooth and mostly clean. NIce!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting. Pours a very hazy cloudy brown with a medium white head. Super odd aromas. Smoked meat, yams, funk, caramel, maple syrup, spicy funk, oregano. So strange and curiously inviting. Medium bodied, sweet yam and pumpkin pie spices. Strange and delicious. Finishes with some light funkiness, tasty, nice vanilla tones on the end.

Murky orange brown color with a small white head. Aroma has pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, caramel, mashed potatoes and molasses with a hint of Brett. Flavor has more Brett, slightly funky with some dryness. Mellow sweetness and a light amount of spice and cooked vegetables. Spice and Brett finish it off. Thanks to Al for sharing.
