Bottle courtesy of Luke, thank younsir! Cloudy chestnut color, scant large bubble head. Aroma of slightly funky and peppery caramel. Taste is sweet potato pie, caramel, black pepper. Nice. The brett needs more time in this particular bottle, Iíd like to lay a bottle down.

(750ml bottle, courtesy of Dixonian) Pours a cloudy amber body with a small cream head. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, maple, leather, toffee, and apple. Flavor of maple syrup, honey, sweet potato, caramel, and light brett. Sweet.

Thanks to Dixonian for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of maple, brown sugar, caramel and pumpkin and sweet potatoes. The beer smells about how I remember the regular Autumn Maple smelling, only a little bit sweeter. The flavor is different than the original. I get a light funk from the brett, which comes through a little bit leathery. I also get a lot of brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkins, yams and alcohol. I also get a little bit of dark fruit and cherries, though I donít think any dark fruit is in the beer. There is also some maple and vanilla in the flavor, which is very nice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A beer I am glad I got to try.

A: The beer pours a slightly hazed amber color with a small off-white head. S: Quite fruity, which is really something I was not anticipating. It has a nice spiciness like you expect from Autumn Maple with particularly strong notes of vanilla and cinnamon. Plenty of bread with a nice graham cracker sweetness. Not much in terms of "funk" that you normally expect from Brettanomyces. T: The flavor is full of sweet malt, particularly toffee, with some of the graham cracker notes. A strong flavor of apples as well as a few other fruits. Big vanilla flavor with some nice spice notes, mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. M: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. O: My only real complain here would be the carbonation. Otherwise quite nice.

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.

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.

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. 8/4/7/3/13

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
Overall Impression: 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...

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.

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!
