The first time I sipped this beer, I wished that I was outside on a brisk evening, possibly watching a high school football game (although you can’t drink beer there), or possibly in the woods with leaves littering the ground wearing a scarf and winter hat. When I closed my eyes, that’s where I was immediately taken. This beer is spiced perfectly. It is a bit thicker and unfiltered, which just adds to its rustic autumn persona. The aroma smells just like fallen leaves, but in a good way, right after they’ve been raked into a pile to jump in. The maple adds just a touch of sweetness to the end. This beer would also be perfect paired with waffles for breakfast if you can’t find a wooded location from which to savor.
