Each season we brew this wheat ale with real Vermont maple syrup. The ale is light golden color just like real maple syrup. This has a light maple flavor with a mildly sweet body. Pale, wheat and carapils malts are used with Tettnanger and Cascade hops and pure Vermont Maple Syrup.

Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of maple syrup, malt, spices, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, maple syrup, wheat, caramel, and spices, leading to a dry finish.

Bomber. Nose dark and syrupy, spicy forest hops with red malt, though the pour is a deep golden that only edges over into amber. Fizzes itself out, though, no head but consistent firm carbonation. Thereís a really nice subtle berry character in the nose, as well, with wheat, slight alcohol, wood. Taste is dry and spicy, light bitterness with soothing wheat and bread that last all the way through. Getting some great secondary flavors from the syrup addition, though it does make the modest alcohol run a bit hot. Hops are earthy-spicy rather than citric and complement the mild wood well, sticky medium body a bit hard and unwelcoming. An interesting thing to try once, and I really donít dislike it at all, but I think Iíd prefer it mixed with another liquid.

Bottle from Joeís. Cloudy caramel color no head. Mild banana clove aroma with strong maple syrup aroma as it warms. Sweet maple syrup and ripe peach fruity sweetness with assertive minerally bitterness. Medium light body. Low carb. Very hard water or something. Okay nice attempt but not good.

jamesewelch (233) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2015
22oz bottle, bonus beer at BJCP study group, 4 oz pour into tasting glass

Aroma: sweet, slightly caramel, with some maple

Appearance: amber with slight haze, off white minimal head

Flavor: very sweet, slight bitterness, finish has a bite, not a lot of wheat, the sweetness or maple overpowers the rest of the malts, a strange taste which doesnít taste like maple but something else persists which I canít figure out

Mouthfeel: creaminess, medium body

Overall: Easy drinking, not a bad beer. Iíd rather have a tad more wheat and a little less maple, but overall itís drinkable, albeit a bit sweet. Something more for a dessert beer than a dinner beer.

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.

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.

GIJOE (1000) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 7, 2014
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.

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.

Pours a hazy orange amber with the aroma of maple. Taste is wheat dry, maple and vanilla. Well balanced.
