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.

J’ai adoré! Un peu comme la kriek belge, ça sent fort le sirop d’érable. Pas trop forte mais quand même pas trop légère.

Belle couleur proche du sirop d?erable. Gout d?erable important et qui ne tombe pas sur le coeur.

Four-pack bought at the grocery store. Poured very cold into a shaker, deep copper in colour with a thin 2-3mm head that disappeared quickly. Aromas of malt and maple - LOTS of maple. Little to no hops to speak of on the nose, nor in the mouth. Taste of maple, right up front...intense and sweet, but not cloyingly so, kind of like dilute maple taffy in a glass. Probably the best maple beer I’ve had to date, better than the Schoune or Granville Island offerings I sampled recently. To my taste, the colder this beer is, the better - the malts get hidden by the maple as the beer warms up. Very tasty served ice cold, in a frosted glass.

De mémoire, très différente de l’année dernière, en meilleur. Cette version met le sirop d’érable en vedette et j’aime ça. Arôme de sirop d’érable puissant, goût équilibré et texture pétillante légère de pale ale. Hommage à l’érable.

341 ml bottle from saint-jerome IGA thx dad A: maple candy, woody, dark caramel app: clear dark copper border brown no head t/p: med body with sweet finish of average duration. Soft carbonation. O: bof. Half a bottle would have been plenty. Maple aromas are more candy like than natural.

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Ambrée moyennement foncé, surmontée d’ une mince mousse beige qui disparais assez vite, merci. Au nez, c’est un odeur puissant de sirop d’érable... j’ai failli en verser sur mes crêpes. Moyenne de corps, en bouche l’érable est beaucoup plus subtil et cette bière n’est pas sucrée ad nauseam comme certaines du même type. Somme toute, une bière à l’érable qui ose s’affirmer sans écoeurantite.

UM02 (328) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Very subtle sweetness in this beer that is well blended with the malt to avoid the sickly sweetness found in too many fruit or flavoured beers. The maple can definitely be tasted but it is pleasant and not overpowering.

Bottle. Bright copper amber body, average white head. Sweet genuine maple aroma and flavour, but thankfully they held back on sweetness in the malt profile. Don’t get me wrong, this is a sweet beer alright, just not unbearably sweet for me, and it helps that I happen to love maple syrup. It also helps that there is an acidity on the palate that keeps this from becoming a syrupy mess IMO.
