It has the same problems as a lot of maple flavoured ales, it tastes too artificial. I had a hard time finishing it. I would use it to cook but that is about it. One, if not the worst beer of st-ambroise.

Draft - Sweet syrup and pale malts. Deep brown and clear with a decent beige head. Sweet syrup and not much else. Too sweet.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear reddish dark amber with a resilient beige head. Aroma is loads of maple, toasty. Flavor is maple, roast, caramel, brown sugar. Finish is a good bit of herbal hops. Finish is a well-balanced touch of honey, maple and herbs. Light body, average carbonation. Super simple ale, but it really tastes like maple, which feels good.

2013-02-22 - tasting hosted by blankboy, with gregclow, jercraigs and mabel - 341ml bottle c/o gregclow? Refractive copper-amber with a smallish foamy off-white head - 4/5 because that’s a nice copper colour. Whoa - sweet aroma, biscuit and harshness (6-) ... nope, don’t like it. Taste ... eek ... tastes like maple candy, my teeth melted on contact, not much beer character, obnoxiously sweet [at this point my voice memo - from 16 months ago - devolved into the the "then me" ranting at the future me (now me) and refusing to give a number for taste]

vadie (744) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Ambré-rouge avec une mousse moyenne beige. L’arôme à plein d’érable et un peu du malt mais en bouche c’est pas vraiment sucré. Une bonne ambre ale avec un goût claire d’érable mais ce n’est pas accablante. En fait, c’est en équilibre avec la reste de la bière. Très bonne!

Gethinbeer (2172) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Beautiful clear mahogany pour with a frothy white head. Lovely rich caramel fruit aroma with subtle hop notes. Delicious maple syrup flavour with a lovely fruit note that changes it up from all other maple beers I’ve had. Its almost the perfect maple beer. The best maple beer I’ve tried.

pumpkinhead2 (372) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Bière brune aux reflets rouge orangée, parfaitement limpide, faible effervescence, et surmontée d’un col brunâtre un peu mince mais persistant, léger et uniforme. Arômes très sucrés dominés par l’érable et le sucre d’orge, avec un peu de malt fumé, de caramel et de céréale grillée. Ça sent véritablement ces petits bonbons bruns en forme de fleur au sucre d’orge à l’érable. Nez très agréable, bien intense, pas des plus complexes cependant. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, et breuvage mince au palais. Au goût, comme le nez laissait présager, ça goûte le sucre d’orge à l’érable, avec un peu de malt fumé et de céréale grillée. Ce n’est pas exagérément sucrée cependant, et une petite amertume (qui semble surgit de nulle part, et un peu mal intégrée aux autres saveurs) vient tenter d’équilibrer la finale. Bière correcte, sans plus…

cfrancis (2405) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Pours dark golden brown with a small velvet beige head. Aroma is sweet maple syrup and caramel malts. Taste is sickly sweet maple syrup but not overpowering like most maple beers. Sweet malts back it up but keep it grounded.

Atheist_Peace (967) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Clear, dark amber pour with an average tan head that dissipates rather quickly to leave a thin ring of lace. Interesting nose full of maple syrup and caramel, but not much else. There is something distinctly beerish about the nose but it’s buried under heavy layers of sweet impressions. I prepared my palate for sugar rush but this stuff is a lot more tempered in sweetness than the nose suggests. It’s still sweet and getting through a full serving might be a little challenging. There’s certainly a lot of maple in the mouth but you can still tell you’re drinking beer and not just thinned out maple syrup. Decent enough but I doubt I’ll go back for a second bottle.
