tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle 500 ml [2012]. Appearance: Hazy amber with a small beige head. Aroma: Sweet, sugar, malt. Taste: Sweet, malt, maple syrup with a slight bitter finish. Overall: A bit thin and not very complex, but not bad. Just miss a little something to be a very good beer. If you want a beer with a maple syrup taste, Dieu du Ciel Équinoxe du Printemps is way better.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
[4284-20120207] 500mL bottle. Cheesy yeast malt grain aroma. Hazy, dark brown amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet heavy grain bark malt flavour has a hint of dark maple syrup in the finish. Medium-full body has quite a fizzy mouthfeel. Interesting balance. (6/3/7-/3/13) 3.2

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2012
2012-02-07. Hazy dark brown body, small quick beige head. 3+ Sweet aroma is malty and sugary with a bit of tangy maple. Flavour is similar, fairly sweet overall, plain sweet malty core has light bitterness and tangy sugary maple accents. Finish is a bit dry, ligtly alcoholic, this actually reminds me a bit of something that I can’t quite place. Almost quad like with a fruity not quite yeasty character to go with the sugars. Smooth average bodied palate has a modest carbonation but its almost champagne like in terms of the bubbles. Relatively simple, but pretty enjoyable. Much better than expected, alcohol starts to show more as it warms. Sugary sweetness gets slightly more cloying as you go as well. Bottle from Dépanneur Tout-Près, Levis

Odeur; une bonne whiff the sirop d’érable. L’étiquette ne ment pas. Belle robe brun fonce avec mousse crémeuse à souhait. Sirupeux eu bouche, épais et enveloppant. Chaud (alchohol) et bien sûr sucré; du sirop d’érable sans complexe. Je conçois que ce n’est pas pour tous le monde, mais moi j’adore. Pour ceux qui aiment les bières sucré.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
Bière trouble, couleur d’acajou, coiffée d’un superbe col chamois marquant le verre d’une dentelle costaude. Des arômes herbacés de caramel, de tire-éponge, d’alcool et d’érable. Légèrement amère, sans sucre résiduel et avec une pointe d’acidité. Elle est forte, robuste, de texture huileuse et à l’effervescence légère. Légère astringence. Elle se termine honnêtement, sur un filet d’alcool et sur des arômes soutenus.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
From a 500 ml bottle into a pint. Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. Smells very strongly of maple, maybe also brown sugar. Taste is real MAPLE, all over my mouth, yet in very reasonable quantity, which rarely is the case with most French Canadian maple beers. Probably helps that this one has such a high alcohol percentage, as the alcohol definitely helps balancing the sweetness. Thus, very sweet, yet far from nauseating, very nice, thick texture and pleasant carbonation. Loved it. Definitely a different kind of tasting experience, yet I would not recommend it on a warm day.

Aroma: peppery , slightly alcoholic nose with clean smooth maple feel. Good aroma.7+
Appearance: slight haze, clean amber brown. Mid tanned fine top. 3+

Tricker (283) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
Bière forte de 9 % d’alcool. Bière saisonnière à l’érable, on goûte légèrement cet aspect, qui est très discret. De couleur brune avec un long col, on reconnaît un aspect sucré, avec une légère amertume. Correcte, mais pas la meilleure.

Eructoblaster (3056) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a hazy brown body with a thin off-white bubbly head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with caramel hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Taste carries maple, and plummy notes and is relatively thin. Ends with a decent, warming bittersweet finish. Good effort.
