Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of banana esters, candy sugariness and creamy wheat. Malty and creamy wheat on the tongue first, then some caramel before a semi-dry maple finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Too thin for a maple beer for me. Copper pour. Syrup and caramel in nose. Wheat comes through in taste. Watery though and too sweet to me. The maple doesn't blend. Interesting idea but not there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy pale-amber with a moderate white head that dissipates quickly to a ring. Not much lacing.
Nose is malt and maple. Taste is sugary sweet. Fairly thin, vigorous carbonation. Decent ale. I like it, but not a go to brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
from the 650 ml. bottle with February notched out of the label. A slightly cloudy amber-red pour with a modest cream colored head sticking around up top. Aroma of caramel malts, maple syrup, and wheat in that order. Light to medium body. The maple flavor kicks in more so in the taste followed by the caramel malts and wheat and it ends slightly dry and earthy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a red/amber colored clear body with a two finger white foamy head that rapidly dissipates and leaves a tad of lacing in its wake.
The smell had a maple aroma up front but not overbearing just combined nicely with some light malt and wheat, slight apples very faint.
The taste was mainly sweet with the previously mentioned flavors, maple becomes predominant and lingers into aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, it sat about a medium, sessionable, adequate carbonation.
Overall, wow, what a nice brew, unsure if its truly an APA, but hey I’d have this one again.

[5274-20130427] Tap. Rich maple walnut aroma. Clear, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Maple-infused grainy malt flavour has a touch of something nutty in the background. Medium body. Really interesting but a bit too much maple. (7+/3/7-/3/12) 3.2

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Burlington on late March 2013 and drunk on late November, so maybe it took more than half year when my sample was brewed.
The first aroma is Maple and this aroma dominate all the aroma. Taste is sweet but the high carbonation decrease the sweetness and impresses not so sweet. Low alcohol but warm. Nice maple ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
650 mL bottle. Hazy, rusty amber with not much head. You wouldn’t know this is a wheat beer from the aroma; all sweetness and that vegetal note you get when maple boils down. The flavour is just too sweet, and it really thins out at the end. Not enough of a base; the wheat is obliterated.
