COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Peak Maple Collaboration is a truly local project. It’s 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 nation’s leading environmentally conscious culinary organization.

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.

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 it’s basically maple free.

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. Can’t really describe it. A light toasty/nutty sweetness. Dry and kind of papery.

Cybercat (4083) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2012
Subtle malty aroma has fruity and maple syrup hints. It pours a clear, dark coppery brown with a rather thick, pale yellow-tan head. Flavor is better than what the not-so-hot aroma promised: malty with a strong maple syrup tone and hints of caramel and pear. Smooth texture has average body but good fizz and leaves a maple-ish finish.

Rustyham (1804) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2012
Color of pee, pee smell with some sugar added (unhealthy pee). Flavor is very pale and faint, watery mouthfeel with a tiny essence of some maple somewhere in the back. the flavor comes on quite slowly, and the Maple mostly needs to be imagined.

Moderate malt aroma with light fake maple hints. Cloudy brown color with a medium white head. Dry malt flavor throughout with a very light maple finish.

Ah’m a sucker for maple syrup, molasses, or anything related, so seeing this on the shelf was waving a red flag at me. 22 oz. bomber split with my wife. First, my own prejudice, but I expect maple beers to be dark; weird. Pours a very light amber. Smell is terrifically sweet, with a five o’clock shadow of maple & malts. Almost a cedar-like tint, too. The Maple Collaboration is less maple than mint. Very minty. I can feel my teeth glinting. Heavy dose of Cheerios, grainy, cereal, husk included. Oaty. This is like a horse’s feed bag. Cut rate sweetness that might be maple, might be malts, disappointed there’s not more molasses. Late, tongue-tingling bite in the hops. Slow & low. Not bad, but I feel victimized by false advertising, the maple syrup is the pale ghost of a possibility. Decent enough.
