750 ml bottle from Bev4less in Santee.
A cloudy brown pour with amber highlights and a very small beige head that suggests under-carbonation. The aroma is big with the distinctive bouquet of Belgian style yeasts, raisins, dates, some fruit notes that I can not put my finger on(yams perhaps) and brown sugar. The flavor like the aroma has that distinctive character that tells you this is a Belgian style concoction; this is a sweet brew with brown sugar, spices, molasses and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is full and smooth, the finish is long with lots of molasses.
While this is a sweet beer, it is not overpoweringly so, Autumn Maple is well balanced with spices and fruit. It kinda reminds me of Alpines Ichabod 2007 without the sour. I'd bet that it would make a great sour base beer to that extent. C'mon Patrick throw in some Brett and age it in Oak.
One last note--I'm not sure why this is classified as a pumpkin beer when the label states that there is no pumpkin used in the brewing.
