COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Peak Maple Collaboration is a truly local project. Itís a new twist on our previously brewed Maple Oat Ale. We worked with local farmers and small businesses to craft this beer with Maine-grown organic oats from GrandyOats and Vermont-produced organic maple syrup from Butternut Mountain Farms. The Maple Collaboration is a copper-colored brew with a dynamic mouth feel from the organic oats and a subtle richness in the finish from the organic maple syrup. The beer is in support of Chefs Collaborative, the nationís leading environmentally conscious culinary organization.

jgb9348 (4735) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Hazy deep copper coloured body with a thick, seven centimetre tall tan head - very large, of course. Aroma of malt, raisins, grapes, yeast, nuts and a bit of caramel and maple syrup, but just sweetness in general. Medium-bodied; Strong maple flavour at first in the taste with a definite sweetness over everything else. Some malt behind with apricots, raisins and a lot of earthy nuttiness. Aftertaste almost warm (even though beer is cold) showing some good malt flavours and that sweetness that persists throughout. Overall, a bit off on the balance, but some good sweetness and a nice maple flavour work well for the style, but donít expect a great beer stacked up against others...this is a good amber with a nice sweetness. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Oliverís Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$6.49 sampled at home in Washington on 01-October-2012.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Light maple sugar, toasted malts, and light earthy notes. Not bad.

burg326 (3670) - Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Poured an amber brownish color, aromas of caramel, light maple, and some hazelnut. Not too much maple in the flavor, have to try to really find it, ok beer overall.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Pours a mid to dark amber with light notes of grain and maple. The maple shows more precision. It finishes with lingering grains and maple sweetness.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
The aroma is malty and hoppy but has no maple. The appearance is amber with a smaller head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer but itís basically maple free.

Palidor19 (2948) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
There is hardly any maple in this beer, but the rest of the beer is very good for what it is. has a nice caramel presence with a touch of hops that are not essential but offer a great drinkable beer for the serious beer lover.

Pour is lightly hazy and golden amber in color. One finger of off white head. Nose is super musty and....musty. Canít really describe it. A light toasty/nutty sweetness. Dry and kind of papery.
