750mL thanks to Travlr and tastybeer. Pours a murky amber with no head formation. Yellow bubbles dance along a flat liquid. Nose is very sweet beet sugar, huge syrup. Taste is 100% wort. Just totally unfermented wort. Brown sugar and maple syrup explosion. No carbonation, no alcohol. So...yeah. A lot like Papier and Coton and well...a lot of other Bruery beers.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 Bottle. Pour is amber with a small off-white head, decent retention/lacing. Aroma is candied yams, maple, cured ham, pumpkin pie light brett. Flavor is maple, yam, pumpkin pie, overall quite sweet. Finish is slightly dry, palate is sticky, medium bodied, low carbonation. Definitely would benefit from aging.

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, I’d like to lay a bottle down.

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 don’t 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.
