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.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark tawny, tan head.
Very high aromatic intensity. Reminds me of Pedro Ximenez Sherry dessert wines: figs, dates, acorns, caramel, chocolate and, of course, maple syrup.
Sweet, creamy; very powerful but still fresh. Very long finish. It’s very easy to get a beer buzz with this different and very interesting ale.

Sample at SBWF 14. Murky copper liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, maple syrup, bread, caramel and light booze. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of maple syrup, vanilla and toffee. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Solid strong ale. Best Flying Monkeys beer I’ve had.

Flaska bishops marina - lite spritt doft med toner av lönnsirap. Bärnstensfärgad med beigt skum. Tydlig smak av lönnsirap och en värme från alkoholen.
