Poured from the bomber some orange over cloudy amber with a few fingers of chunky foam. Got most of the malt sweetness at the front end, straw, a touch of maple throughout, and some hops toward the end, booze, at one point I thought I tasted pancakes, but I might have been dreaming of waffle house.

[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a hazy golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is yeasty, herbal and fruity along with some maple syrup and light hops. Flavour is yeasty and herbal along with some alcohol, citrus and maple syrup. Average to medium bodied. Good stuff, I liked it quite a bit.

gripweed57 (1000) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy deep golden color with a medium-sized rocky beige head. Fresh, funky, yeasty citrus nose. Tart bready malt flavor has obvious maple syrup notes. Slightly funky, earthy yeast character is met by a sweet alcohol twang. Finish is dry and bittersweet with a nice apocolyptic citrus peel zip.

LinusStick (3018) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Decent beer. Aroma was so so. A little thin but was full of yeast, hay and light malt. Pour was a hazy light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was a lot better than the smell. Very complex beer with a lot going on. Tart and bubbly upon first sip. Light malt, yeast and lemongrass. Mid sip, the maple syrup sticks to the cheeks and leaves just a bit of sweetness there before a sour lemony finish ends it. Very strong and biting carbonation. Nice one

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
2015-06-12. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a nice creamy white head. 3+ Aroma of dry malt, lightly yeasty, pale malt core. Flavour alternates between sweet malt and a much dryer sharper character. Mild alcohol throughout. Intriguingly the maple comes out more in the bottom half of the bottle. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. 3+ Bottle shared by Blankboy.

Overheard:"So you’re not using the dog’s hump pillow?"
"*I* am!!!"

Hazy golden amber. Nose of sweet citrus and Belgian yeast. Nice. As it warms, tiny pockets of maple. Flavor is sweet citrus and more Belgian yeast character. Again, a bit of maple residual as it warms. Adds a nice twist. Pretty nice overall, but a tad sweet.
