3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark molasses brown with lots of carbonation. Good lacing.
Aroma is strong with maple syrup. I am in love.
First sip reveals nice balance of chai and maple. Not too sweet but definitely evokes maple syrup on pancakes.
Nice tingly mothfeel carries a nice flavor. Leaves a lingering maple sweetness on the lips. Its very good. Aftertaste is creamy and sweet with a slighlty dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours brown in color with a 2 finger light brown head that settles slowly to reveal some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by maple with a light chai tea presence and mild hops. Taste is maple sweetness with hints of chai tea and a mild hoppy bitterness. Light to medium body with abundant carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the palate. A very well done brew by a brewery not known for quality beers in the past. I was quite surprised by this one.

Huge amount of carbonation powers a very chai like aroma. Anticipation while waiting for head to subside for first sip, will it live up to the aroma? Taste is sweet, slight bitter finish. Strange taste, not for me.

Extremely fragrant with the essence of the chai and maple. Great flavour from the mzple and chai. Not a heavy beer good summer ale. Beer flavour is not strong.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fantastic chai aroma and great lingering maple aftertaste... but unfortunately the most important part -- the taste of the actual beer -- leaves very much to be desired; it’s like tonic water. If they fixed this part IMHO this could be a 4+ beer. Maybe that would be impossible, though, as it would drown out the chai. Really wish I could give this a higher rating.

Bottle. Deep copper colour with thin, bubbly beige head. Strong maple smell with whiffs of chai; small maple taste with whiffs of beer. Sweet, but very watery. Not a lot of substance.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dark amber, creamy light brown head settles and lasts. Pungent burnt brown sugar and maple aroma. Strong maple syrup taste, sweet roasty malts, no discernable hops or bitterness. Couldn’t pick up on any chai or spices either. Softly carbed, light - medium body. Thick sweet syrupy finish. Pass the pancakes. Odd choice for a spring seasonal, more of a fall/winter warmer.
