I hate to give any beer such a low rating (especially one that comes in a bottle that supports breast cancer...at least by color), but in this case..it was worse than some of the beers Iíve brewed myself. It smells good, and you know exactly what youíre in for - bacon and a sweet maple flavor. It even looks like a good beer, nothing weird that stands out. But then you take a sip..and you wanna barf. Itís that bad folks. I had to try it out a sheer curiosity, and now I have. I donít wish I hadnít but Iím glad I didnít try to convince myself it was worth "muscling down." Try if youíre curious and have like 10+ monies to spend on beer that you may or may not like. Itís your call.

Pours light brown with a tan head. Aroma sweet maple. Flavor smoky, maple sugar, and bacony. Too much on the smokiness. I was expecting more..but hey...this was unique...one time tasting....and the bottle is marvelous!

Butelka Barwa bursztynowa. Piana drobna, obfita, trwała. Słodki zapach syropu klonowego i lukru. W smaku syrop klonowy, palony kabel, bardzo słaba nuta wędzonego bekonu. Goryczka niska. Piwo nudne i nijakie.

Abijen (1430) - ís-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, maple, wood, forest and resin. Tastes maple, woods, watery. Strange, not bad. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

BOTTLE. Got a lot of smoked ham up front with a very sticky sweet maple finish, seemed to be very cloudy & copper in colour. With a very sweet & sticky aroma from the maple.... Sourced from Cellarbrations @ Capel

Pours very dark brown, with a very thick, quickly dissipating head. Powerful aromas of bacon and maple immediately waft up from the bottle and glass. Smells like a Canadian breakfast in a bottle. Tastes of very smoky bacon, with hints of maple coming through. Surprisingly not all that sweet, which was a welcome surprise. Overall, easy to dismiss as a novelty beer, but this one has some legs, and I could definitely drink it again.
