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.

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. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2011

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.
