A beer suitable for breakfast or anytime! This specialty ale is brewed with our own well water, pure Vermont maple syrup, toasted rye, flaked oats, pale barley, and just a hint of smoked malt.

Bottle shared by mdfb79. Thanks Dan. The beer is dark orange with a finger of white head that leaves moderate lacing on the glass. The aroma is of sweet malt, maple, vanilla. Some vanilla, maple, malt, perhaps raisins in the flavor. It’s pretty sweet. Decent, though unexceptional, a small serving is plenty. Some booze in the finish. Light to medium bodied. Overall, an OK brew, but probably not something I would have again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-15-2011

bottle shared by Joey at Zwanze Day - Sweet fruity and dry malts and citrus. Plenty of fizzy carbonation. Light sweet maple notes and light rye spice. Not bad, but also had this right after zwanze, so...

Bottle courtesy of Joey at Zwanze day at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Sweet, light maple, grainy and sweet. Sweet with big carbonation and a malty sweetness. Grainy. Sweet toast, and a dry bitterness on the finish.

Bottle... Light peach, with a bit very light tope head... The nose is not good, wet dog with a touch of maple... The taste is flat and devoid of flavor, water that was drained off a wet dog and drank... Don’t bother

22oz bomber, no date from the place up in VT that sells their beers--the general store south of Waterbury about 45 minutes. Rare batch #210, bottle #47. Clear amber orange with a 1 1/2 finger off-white yellowish head, pretty decent retention. Not the most exciting aroma--mainly just a lot of toasty grain and rye followed by a bit of fruity ale yeast and maple syrup. Flavor follows suit with a little bit of added earthiness--the rye dominates with the maple also fairly prominent. The finish is dry with bitterness peaking at a 2-3. Light to medium body with moderate smooth carbonation. I liked how the rye and maple syrup went together.
