The Bruery Autumn Maple Review

Name: The Bruery Autumn Maple
Style: Fruit/Vegetable/Spiced Beer
ABV: 10%
IBUs: 15

I figured now is the most opportune time to switch it up as far as fall seasonals are concerned, so what better to way to start that off than with The Bruery? Today I have their Autumn Maple. It's a beer that is made with maple syrup, yams (AKA Sweet Potatoes) along with a variety of spices and molasses.

Appearance - Cloudy dark brown color with no visible carbonation. The head is initially foamy head but settles down to a thin filmy look but there's a high amount of lacing on the other hand.

Aroma - Maple syrup and candied toffee malts with some yams, Belgian yeasts and some light cinnamon and nutmeg notes. I'm also getting some mild booziness in here as well.

Taste - Maple syrup, Belgian yeasts, molasses, and candied toffee malts dominate the palate with some surprisingly strong spiciness in the back along with some yam and molasses notes. The aftertaste is consists mainly of light Belgian yeasts and mild maple syrup notes. I am getting a mild amount of boozy heat in here as well, but it isn't noticable in the flavor so much as it is on the palate.

It's arguably about as "Fall" as you can get in terms of flavor and it all works together surprisingly well. In fact, I could see this going well during Thanksgiving, a holiday which I enjoy about as much as a case of appendicitis. Regardless, this is a good beer to help celebrate the fall season and anyone who is able to get this beer should try it out.

The Bruery Autumn Maple - 9/10
