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.

It pours a clear copper color leaving the same color body. A nice one inch white foamy head appears and concaves to leave some nice foamy lacing around the sides of the pint glass. The body is light enough for some carbonation to be seen rising. The smell is all about the maple up front pretty much masking everything else even after some warming, I was hoping some other possible flavors might show up, but not this time. The taste is exceptionally sweet, perhaps a bit too much maple, I wasnít expecting this. The palate is about a medium and very smooth, possibly because of the extra maple in this beer. Overall, I really wasnít expecting this beer to be this good. Though its more of a dessert beer because of the sweetness, Iíd probably have it again. I will say its very different for the style.

Well this is the strangest beer Iíve tried. Iím not sure how to describe it... Iím not even sure how I like it. Nice even brown color, but more clear than it should be. Kind of a vegetable aroma, not much maple, but drinking leaves some syrup-like film on your lips. Maple? Maybe, canít tell. Not bitter, actually sweet, so maybe maple. Terry it...What do you think?

Poured from a bottle. Nice clear amber color, medium white frothy head. Somewhat of a scotch smell. Butternut squash flavor with a residual syrup flavor left on your lips. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of grains like a bad scotch, nice color, clear with an amber colour and no head. Taste of butternut squash with a syrupy palate.

ben4321 (3807) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/25/13

Aroma: The nose is very sweet, maple syrup, honey, caramel, toffee, and apple
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish-orange color with a frothy beige head and mid lace
Flavor: The taste is heavy sweet, and component-wise it basically matches up with the nose
Palate: It is medium bodied and has a pretty solid feels that stays away from getting too sticky
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent, but ultimately too sweet beer. I certainly didnít hate it, but it just doesnít quite do it for me.

Whereís the maple? Kinda OK, not a horrible beer. A little sweet, maybe itís maple, IDK.

wedgie9 (1837) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Tasted from a 650mL bomber bottle. Pours clear dark orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace, and sticky residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is marshmallow and caramelized brown sugar with some bread and light bitterness. The flavor is nicely sweet up front, with the marshmallow and maple, moving to the more bitter burnt brown sugar. The body is medium with average carbonation and a medium sweet maple and bitter burnt brown sugar finish.

Amber pour with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is sweet and boozy with some caramel. Maple flavors are definitely there and the mouthfeel is is nice and full. Decent, a few off flavors detract but itís allright.
