4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice smell, but the flavors are slightly oxidized at this point.

Bottle. Pours red with thin white head that dissipates. Sweet maple smell over light carbonation. Thick almost like maple syrup and a slight boozyness. Sweet maple flavor with a bit of caramelized sugar on the back. I'm not a big sweet fan but this is first rate.

Bottle thanks to lefthyzer. Pours a cloudy amber with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong maple oak and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with strong maple upfront, light candy sugar, and light boozy finish. Very good, hiding alcohol well, really enjoyed this one.

very cool beer. very prevalent maple flavors, lots of sweetness and some vague acidity in the finish is nice. other than that, it tastes exactly how you’d expect, like fresh maple, and earthy sweetness.

Pours a deep amber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is rich sweet maple sap mingling with a bit of earthy booze and belgian spice. The palate follows with a full rich mouthfeel and great maple notes that lead into a caramel booziness that is heightened slightly by some background esters and caramelized malts. Really a great example of the art of maple brewing !
