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 lovely, clear orange-amber with a modest sized but very durable tan head. Plenty of caramel malt with a hint of spicy hops. Real Vermont maple syrup is detectable in both the nose and the taste. It is slightly sweet, but has an excellent sweet/bitter/sour balance. Creamy smooth, but with enough carbonation to give it an excellent bit of liveliness too. Delicious, despite a very slight off- or sour-note in the nose and palate.

22oz bomber. clear amber ale. aroma is heavy on the cereal malt. smells like hot oatmeal with maple sugar sprinkled in. Lots of complex malt and grain n taste and aroma. The maple syrup is very mild and may add to the sweetness. would taste better if drank in a VT pub

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bomber. Poured clear honeyed amber with a short, dense khaki head. The aroma was very, very sweet with maple, vanilla, and nutty notes.. made me think I was gonna get the diabeetus. The flavor found sweet maple, vanilla, and nutty notes again at the core.. lightly-toasted oats too.. lots of lingering maple on the finish. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. nice and toasty.. this was aiight.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Gold foil-wrapped bomber with a twist-off cap (WTF?). Pours clear, dark copper and orange, with a small creamy beige head. Aromas of sugary maple candy, Vermont maple syrup, and cereal. The flavor is weak malt, bread, and mild maple candy in the finish, with some cocoa as well. A little thin. Weak. [903]

AirForceHops (4417) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 15, 2011
22 oz bottle. $5.49 @ local Market Basket. Amber in a pint. Steady carbonation creates a ¼ thick white head with nice retention. Caramel and a metallic aroma. The metallic shows up in the flavor as well. Under the metallic flavor is light maple and a trace of oats that give it a medium body. Would I call this a bad beer?? No. However, would I buy it again?? No

PorterPounder (6145) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky, dark copper with a sticky white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is a bit muddled - some burnt coffee, a hint of maple syrup sweetness. Flavor has some of that muddled quality to it as well. Pick up some maple syrup sweetness, a bit of dark unsweetened chocolate, lots of crystal malt artificial sweetening. Mouthfeel is sticky. Very average.

drowland (6771) - Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2011
11/11/11. 22oz bottle. Clear brown/amber pour with a small fluffy khaki head that fades. Extremely plain aroma with a touch of sweet caramel and a ton of metal. Huge metallic/iron flavor with just barely a touch of maple and maybe a hint of roasted caramel malts. Borderline horrible.

unclemattie (4356) - Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2011
22oz bottle, twist-off with gold foil. Deep copper color, thick creamy tan head. Aroma of cold oatmeal with fermented maple flavoring. Maple is non-existent. The most distant scent and that may be all. Decent medium body. Seems to be force carbonated, sharp, overly fizzy with big bubbles. Mostly finishes with a light earthiness, some bitterness in the end. Just a basic cardboard finish. Not the best of Peak Org stuff.

Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Nice copper amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light maple nose. Flavor is maple, hints of caramel with slight bitter finish. $5.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord, NH.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Maple and caramel aromas. Medium bodied with sweet maple and caramel front to back. Mild sour bitterness in the finish.
