3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This wheat poured a deep amber colour with a tan, rocky head. Scents include maple, alcohol, Baileys, fudge and more maple. First swig was smooth and very strong flavoured with minimal carbonation. Almost a oily mouthfeel with flavours of maple fudge, malt, toffee and caramel. Finish is sweet and thick on the palate with maple sugar lingering. Warms all the way down.

750 ml bottle. Thanks to Timo A!
Murky reddish brown color with a tiny light tan head.
Sweetness, syrup, maple syrup, sugar, vanilla and malt in the aroma.
The flavor is alcohol, bitterness, dryness, super sweetness, vanilla and sweetener.
More alcohol version of the Acadian Groove. I can't love both.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Sweet caramel and syrup on the nose, malts, subtle vanilla and marshmallow. Sweet malty flavor, some caramel, vanilla, cocoa and milky chocolate, some ripe fruits also, can’t really dig up the wheat here. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Nice but not their best.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at ÖÖWF2015: Aroma is sweet toffee, vanilla, syrup and you understand that this is a taste bomb. Taste is super sweet maple syrup, honey, nuts, caramel and of course - alcohol. Super nice brew, but a typical share bottle.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaska på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Brundisig vätska med beiget fluffigt skum. Rejäl arom av kola, torkad frukt, knäck och en massa lönnsirap. En del rökighet och ekfat (trots att den inte är lagrad?). Smaken är samma. Bra, stor kropp. Lagom humlebett i avslutningen. Utan tvekan bästa ölen under hela dagen. Hamnar högt upp på min lista. Ordentligt trevlig rakt igenom, mums!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Red body with low head. Aroma has high candi sugar sweetness, burn caramel, cherry. Heavy maple syrup, licorice. Honey, nuts and light chocolate. Taste has a lot of vanilla, crapes. It is like eating a sweet breakfast. Chestnut in the after taste. Really complex, a lot of flavors and well balanced. Holy shit. Body is full, medium to high carbonation.

Bottle. Dark amber colour. Aroma brutally complex. Chocolate, nuts, mollasses, rum, tobaco. Insane. Taste is brutal too. Complexity, sweet, mollasses, dried fruits, nuts and chocolate. Long lasting aftertaste. This is a masterpiece.

750 ml bottle shared by MisoW at Bratislava Tasting, thanks!
Dark copper to brown body, with a medium, creamy, dark beige bead.
Aroma of maple, vanilla, cappuccino, caramel, some sweet fruits.
Tastes of caramel, maple, cappuccino, red fruits, some tea, some chocolate.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes quite sweet, with about all aromas mentioned before and some alcohol warmth.
Very nice. Maybe a tad too sweet, but really interesting and diverse aromas. Pretty filling, but a very nice sipper. Overall not my favourite style example, but a really characterful beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy brown colour with almost no head. Smells lots of vanilla, mapple, licoris and caramel. The taste is very sweet with lots of vanilla. The aftertaste leaves some spices and maple in the mouth but I think it has a medical taste which is not pleasant. This is a torture to my tongue.
