3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Pours a fairly clear red-brown color wit ha finger of off-white head. The head fades fairly quickly to a ring around the glass leaving behind touches of lace.
S - Aroma is a blend of some wheat, some breadiness, and some sweet maple. Overall, rather subtle and not too exciting.
T - Starts off with a hit of sweet maple flavor with background wheat and bread flavors. There is even a bit of spice in the background. Through the middle, the pure sweetness fades and becomes a bit more well rounded. There is also a bit more wheat coming through. The finish is a lingering maple sweetness with just a hint of bready flavor.
M - Feels medium bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Even with the strong sweetness, it is still crisp and feels rather refreshing. The maple is nice in the finish.
D - Very drinkable. Even though the nose is a bit weak and empty, the rest of the beer has a nice blend of the maple flavors mixed in with the more traditional wheat beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left ample spotted lace. Pleasant, sweet aroma with notes of maple. The flavor is initially very sweet, but that quickly subsides. Malt and mild maple present in the flavor. As the beer warms, Granny Smith apple emerges in the aftertaste. Very light bitterness at the finish. No problems.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth! But also a little boring. For what I paid, I expected something with more flavor, especially in the maple syrup realm. Pours a quickly disappearing white head, dark amber body, and pretty soon I won’t have feet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From batch #35 not #26. It purs a handsome amber-copper with a thin head. The maple syrup is the most notable aroma at first with the wheat playing a more subtle role in the background. Also a sweet maltiness on the nose. The taste is slightly bitter but also rather pleasant and mellow. Not too sweet despite the maple syrup.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
nice pour with red/light brown color. Wheaty with a light sweet aroma. Starts almost sour with maple sweetness kicking in. Likeing the wheat beer taste with the maple overtones. A easy drinking beer, light on the carbonation and tasty. Would def get again.

On tap - Fillmore Pub in Plano.
Clear copper pour with a tiny amount of white head. Roasted malt aroma with a slight sweetness - has a wheat bite but you can also taste the maple sugar sweetness. Interesting but not one I will revisit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2011 22 oz bomber from EZ. Poured a very nice looking clear dark rusty copper red body with an average sized tighy foamy white head. Aroma has some residual sweetness about it from the syrup along with dead flowers, dry caramel, hay, vegtables and some alcohol. The body is a bit syrupy with average to softer carbonation and even a hint of alcohol. Flavors of dry syrup, grains, cereal, dust. This one started off okay but somewhere along the way it warmed up and dropped off.
