I wanted to like this more as it a local beer by a small new brewery, met the one of the principles at the distributor when I was picking up the case.
It looks beautiful, like a dunkel weizen, light brown, tan head and very cloudy.
Smells like maple syrup and alcohol.
Tastes more like a mixed drink than a beer, gets sweeter and more cinnamon comes out as it gets warmer.
Not bad overall, a couple bottles every fall would be a good thing.

4.01/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- A slightly hazy amber with a lot of floaty and a two finger off-white head.

S- Yams, maple syrup, pumpkin, some spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Makes me think of pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup.

T- Cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, yams, pumpkin, earthy finish.

M- Smooth, medium body, too much carbonation.

O- Spices and maple syrup are the main flavors, pretty done. Glad I pick this up, will pick up up again next year when it is fresh.

3.83/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- Pours a bright and copper clear color with a small creamy white head that retains after the pour, leaving some short-lasting lace behind

S- vegetal aromas of yam, squash and pumpkin. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, sweet maple syrup, buttery pie crust malt. Aroma reminds me of The Bruery Autumn Maple

T- Cinnamon flavor is the first thing to jump out, like cinnamon toast. A maple sweetness kicks in mid-palate with vegetal squash flavors. Pie-crust-like malt on the finish with more maple on the linger

M- medium body and carbonation lead to a chewy mouthfeel and a foamy finish. Light alcohol warmth, but pretty well hidden given the ABV.

O- An interesting take that plays well with the maple and spices. The pie crus flavor of the malt was an inspired touch as well

2.88/5  rDev -26.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: hazy amber, translucent; beige head dissipating to surface film; jags of lacing
S: fresh pumpkin pie, slightly buttery sweet
T: clear nutmeg, bubble gum, alcohol, a hint of maple
M: full-bodied, cream, on the cloying side
O: Much better initial taste than aftertaste, but unfortunately that's what you're stuck with. Weird spiced bubblegum,
