4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nutty raw sienna with two fingers of fizzy off white foam. The nose has some nice bright champagne yeast fruit that mingles with rich caramel, date, vanilla and toasted malt. The palate follows with a soft well carbonated maple champagne flavor that is heightened with soft caramel, fig, rustic grain and traces of honey crisp apple and raisin...touch of bitterness on the finish that dries out nicely with the dialed in carbonation wiping the sweet notes away... lingering maple water. Tasty treat !

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma is reminiscent of caramel malts, figs, earthy yeast, and booze, and the appearance is a cloudy orange color with a small head. The taste is a wonderful mixture of a mild sweetness, a touch of bitterness, a touch of umami, and a touch of sourness, and the palate fuses a boozy finish, oily texture, full body, and a flat carbonation.
