3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like maple. No it really smells like maple. Blind smell test this and Aunt Jemima and I may not be able to tell. Actually that’s not bad at all. I’ve usually found at maple beer is better I theory than practice. This proves me wrong. Easy to drink not too sweet. Nice hops in the finish that really balances it.

[5137-20130222] 341mL bottle. Maple sugary candy gummies aroma. Clear, bright amber body with a quick foamy white head. Maple liqueur flavour is incredibly sweet with a long aftertaste. Medium body. Love maple but this over the top. (6/3/5/3/9) 2.6

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber pour. The aroma is softly sweet with a fruity maple aroma. Has a little bit of soft spice and a sort of cologne-like earthiness that isn’t entirely unpleasant. Nicely dry. Almost a buttered rum character. Very interesting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Maple syrup flavour in general isn’t exactly my cup of tea, but at least this isn’t overly sweet or syrupy in consistency. Big initial smell of maple, but the beer tastes more or less like a lager on the follow through with a persistent maple flavour. Pours clear maple with some fizzy initial head and little lacing. Finishes crisp and a touch sweet. Tap at The Only Café.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Only. Pours a clear copper-orange colour with lasting off-white head. Aroma is bursting with sweet maple sugar, maybe some caramel. Flavour is also dominated by mapley sweetness, some gentle grains and light caramel. Average body. Interesting and somewhat enjoyable, but something I could only ever have in moderation.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep maple brown with an off white foam.Nose of maple and brown sugar, with a hint of vanilla. Acrid burnt sugar profile with completely overwhelming sweetness.Cloying, medium bodied. Long sweet finish lingers. Way too sweet for any sort of regular consumption.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Came in a 12-pack called "La grande sélection" which says "special edition" with 3 of their other brews (meaning only 3 of these maple brews). Pours a clean copper colour with a big frothy beige head that lasts very long and the lacing is good. Big sweet maple nose with hints of nuts. Thankfully, the full sweetness does not carry through to the taste. Very well-balanced between the malt, maple and mild hop that shows up in the finish, just adding a little dryness. The nutty notes appears in the aftertaste, so kind of a brown nut ale with maple syrup added. Nicely blended and much better (and truer to the maple) than the Mill Street Spring Thaw maple I just had a few days ago.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at L’Autre Oeil (Aylmer, QC). Dark copper body with a thin off-white creamy head. Lovely malty/hoppy aroma with strong maple hints. Taste is well balanced and relatively robust. It carries maple and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Good maple beer.
