From bottle. Wasnt sure how maple and a belgian blonde would mix but it seemed ok. Bright blonde and cloudy pour. Aroma does have maple come through well. Taste is sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours fairly dark gold, with a nice sized white head.
Aromas are of yeast and maple syrup.
Taste wise, this is definitely Belgian Yeast colliding with Canadian Maple Syrup. Strangely enough it produces a flavour exactly like candied caramel popcorn.
Overall, it’s an above average brew, but nothing I would drink regularly.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle from LCBO. Toronto, ON. 7 % alc. / vol. Pours a dark golden colour with one finger of head which dissipates rapidly. It has a white chocolate and vanilla aroma.
Taste matches aroma w notes of maple syrup which reminds me of the Tim Horton’s glazed maple donut.
Light body with low carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fabulous seasonal beer. Adding Ontario maple syrup to anything is great but this beverage is wonderful. The bottle said something like sweet malt, noble hops, and Belgian yeast. With the maple syrup mixed in it was outstanding.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Poured clear medium amber with a thin white head. Sweet sugary aroma, light maple hint. Medium body, prickly carbonation with a syrupy mouthfeel. Flavour of caramel malts with a touch of maple, has a grainy quality and a peppery spice finish.

Not much head and it fADES fast. little small carbination bubbles and not many. Light-medium sweetness with a nice maple taste, then a basic ale with a yummy belgian yest taste. Medium bodied. Nice 7%. Nce beer for the warmer weather cheer’s.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - 750ml. Limpid golden body with average carbonation and a thin, fading white bubbly head. Malty aroma with bubble gum and some subtle maple hints. Its slightly misbalanced taste carries woody, maple, and some rotten herbs notes. Ends with a short, oversweetened finish. Disappointing.

Scent of maple, cinnamon, and yeast. Clear golden colour. Strong flavour of maple, spices, and hops. Subtle sweetness with bitter presence. Quite a tasty brew.

Unlike other Maple seasonals the Lake of Bays brew gives lovely aromas of Belgian yeast and the correct amount of maple. It isn’t an overpowering or over sugary concoction. The only problem is it makes you lust for bacon, pancakes and sausages as food pairings.

On tap. Clear amber with foamy head. Aroma pancake and maple syrup. Sweet banana wheat maple taste. Belgian spice in there too. Had this with brunch, and it is a perfect breakfast/brunch beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle, golden color, with a small white head, with a smelly pop corn, faint sulfuric corny, awful wet wheay, pale, toasted malt, burnt maple syrup nose, with a faint vanilla, buttery, french toast accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, burnt metallic, harsh maple syrup, spicy vanilla, wet wheat, toasted, pale, smoky malt, nutty, milkyish sourness character, leading towards sweet corny, burnt maple syrup, wheaty maltiness finish. Something went wrong with this beer!
