Autumn MapleAutumn Maple

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the "pumpkin" beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening.

ABV: 10%, IBU: 25, SRM: 15, Release: Fall

Poured crisply - had a nice sweet smell of the yams it boasted as well as everything autumnal, but the taste sadly washed down with more of a cough medicine sensation - very sugary, a little too much for my taste. And the taste lingered for a little longer than I would've liked as well.

Served in a tulip glass and had it on tap.
This years version was the highlight on tap but from the bottle not so much. I guess it does makes a difference. You get spice, nutmeg, slightly hot but drinkable. The color is maple syrup brown but the taste not so much. The overall taste is balanced on tap with the bold flavors of liquid yams, spices, sweet mouthful of goodness. The bottle is lack of any of yams and its heat(alcohol) overpowers it. It's very inconsistent to what I tasted on tap then from the bottle. Go figure! Cheers.
