Niall73 (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at the Hickster Invasipn. Pours a murky brown with no head. Smoke, maple, bacon aroma. Thin, no carb. Tastes of maple more than anything. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Tommann. Sweetish aroma. It’s a little musty. sweet. Not for me. Some maple syrup.

Hinchy (3) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2014 does not count
Very strong initial aroma and punch on the taste. Aftertaste has bitter and thick lingering but a bit thin in the mouth. Great golden orange colouring, lots of lacing with an initial big pillowy head.

Can smell the maple smoked bacon a mile away. A little sweet and some chemical taste afterwards. Takes awhile for it to develop into a pleasant taste, alot going on. Good effort, nice change up.

I can see why this beer divides opinion. It smells great, sweet maple syrup from the off, followed up by smoked bacon. Pours a murky orange with a thin head. Taste starts with the sweet maple, bacon is a subtle protein hint followed by the smoke. After a while the smoke does get a bit much but if you drink this beer at a nice leisurely pace then it is manageable. If you don’t like smoked beer stay away! If you don’t think beer can have a sense of humour, stay well clear!

Ktwse (1989) - SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Pours hazy orange amber with medium white head. Aroma is literally a pancake and mape syrup breakfast with a side of bacon... Actually makes me long to be back in the States. Taste is bitter-ish followed by long sweet maple syrup finish. Creamy smooth body with soft carbonation. Weird, to say the least. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ansalon (1379) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Sampled at Gothenburg Beer & Whisky festival, April 12th. Pours honey amber with no head. Aroma is very sweet with maple syrup, caramel and toffee along with some roasted notes and smoked bacon. Taste is also very sweet with maply syrup, caramel and toffee along with some smoked bacon. Mouthfeel is quite oily and somewhat sticky with no carbonation. Aftertaste is also sweet with honey and bacon dominating. Very strange.

GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 23, 2014
Botella de 750ml. Copa Globo de Palm (notas del 2012). Color naranja oscuro y apariencia nublada. La espuma, entre marfil y beige claro, crea una consistente capa. El complejo perfil aromático presenta notas intensas de sirope de arce, maltas ahumadas, caramelo quemado, tortitas y torrefacto con trazos de madera quemada. La entrada ahumada precede a un ascendente dulzor. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada. Paladar viscoso. En el intermedio afloran toques de bacón y leve salado junto a sabores de galleta que permanecen el final dulce. Madera en el retrogusto. Una cerveza para “flipar” por las potentes sensaciones que muestra…y lo de menos es el color rosa de la botella!! 750ml bottle. Palm Snifter glass (from my 2012 notes). Deep orange color & cloudy appearance. Off-white to light beige foam creates a thick crown. Complex aroma profile shows intense maple syrup, smoked malts, burnt candy, pancake, roasted notes & burnt wood. Smoked upfront followed by arising sweetness. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Viscous mouthfeel. In the middle, touches of bacon & slight salty with biscuit maltiness linger in a sweet finish. Woody aftertaste. You´re gonna be shocked by strong sensations but the pink color bottle won´t be the main one !!

tomekk1978 (462) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Barwa: miedziana, lekko zmętniona. Piana obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się. Wysycenie wysokie. [5/5] Aromat: początkowo syrop klonowy zmieszany ze spalenizną (a’la dym z ogniska). Następnie nuty estrowe i fenolowe. Niezwykły takiego jeszcze nie czułem. Smak: słodki, owocowy (gruszki w zalewie?), następnie wędzoność, ale inna niż zwykle - owocowa. Utrzymująca się jednak trochę męcząca. Do tego nuty fenolowe (wanilia, gałka muszkatołowa?). Ogólnie niezwykły, jednak nie wiem czy mi smakuje. Jedno z najciekawszych piw, jakie piłem, chociaż trudno stwierdzić czy smaczne. Z pewnością warto docenić walory wizualne, bowiem różowa butelka z szamanem voodoo, świnkami i liśćmi klonowymi przykuwa uwagę. Zawartość również jest nietuzinkowa, ale... Właśnie piwo jest na tyle specyficzne i złożone, że ciężko je należycie opisać. Z pewnością jest jednak warte uwagi i należałoby spróbować je chociaż raz.
