COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly our newest beer, De Maas balances a fruity and floral Belgian yeast character with caramel and toasty maltiness and a firm bitterness.

Draft - Sweet candy sugars and fruity esters. Cloudy caramel with a decent white head. Fruity esters and candy sugars. As someone who doesnt like the style, well balanced and sweetness in check.

Growler, thanks Colin. Dark copper, small white head. Nice sweet caramel aroma with an interesting Belgian yeasty thing going on. Fruity. Body is a tad watery. Tons of flavour - lots of caramel sweetness up front and then it completely turns in to this very interesting Belgian amber sort of thing with smoke - yes smoke! Im not sure I remember a beer taking such a turn halfway through - and in a very good way. What an interesting hybrid of styles - lots of creativity going on here. Another nice one guys.

On tap at the Brewery during Brew Tour 13 Buffalo. Pours a clear tinged brown with a thin white head. Malty and sweet, soft wood and toast. Sweet, toasty. Malt and a good amount of sweetness and toast. Soft caramel and toast. Good time here. Enjoyed the brew tour and talking to the owner.

A: Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Mild Lacing S: Sweet Malts, Belgian Yeast T: Belgian Yeast, Semi Sweet Malts M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Yeasty, Mildly Sweet Overall, the yeast is very overpowering in this beer and not much complexity beyond that. FYI....Its a Belgian Amber Ale...not a Belgian Pale Ale...chalk that up to another NorthYorkSammy verbal botch.

Pours cloudy with a nice head. Floral aroma. Floral taste of a Belgian ale. Nothing spcial but a solid Belgian, good to sit and drink.

1L growler shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a cloudy copper-gold with a small fizzy off-white head. Aroma is a bit papery and vegetal along with some sugary sweetness and yeast. Flavour is yeasty first followed by malt and a bit of fruit. Average bodied. I didnt much care for this one.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2013 2013-02-02. Much cleaner and and less grainy than last time. +1 On tap at the brewery

2012-12-17. Lightly hazy dark amber body, small beige head. 3+ Dry malty aroma, interesting yeasty quality has a Quebecois quality to it. 6+ Flavour is similar, dry malty quality, hints at caramel, lingering, slightly odd malt character. 6+ Average bodied palate. Okay, yeast/malt combination is a bit strange, and it is just a bit more dry overall than my preference. Growler from the Brewery, Buffalo
