Handypaul (556) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy, brownish-orange with a half inch, beige, quickly-diminishing to a thin ring, minimal head that leaves poor lacing. Light body, lightly sweet and even lighter bitter tastes, notes of maple syrup and stale cereal, average carbonation leading to a sticky, brief, lightly bitter finish. Not again.

alobar (3800) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Amber-orange color with aroma of maple and wheat. Sweet with maple syrup, bread, and some banana. Decent beer.

Radek Kliber (7368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 12, 2016
Where and how: on tap at brewery
Aroma:true, clean , rich with full set up of maple sugars. Nice to see true notes of such kind.
Appearance :
Top: medium lighter top, white. A bit of lace on glass.
Base: hazy amber
Palate : medium-thinner bodied, plus carbonation. Average plus finish.
Taste: plenty of maple right up front. Nice capture of such flavours. Wheat character is more muted than expected.
other notes good fall/early spring themed ale.

Metalchopz (3395) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Pours a hazy amber colour with a fizzy head that disappears very quickly leaving no lace. Mild fruity malt aromas with hints of caramel and maple syrup. The maple syrup is more present in the taste. Gets stronger in the aftertaste. A little too sweet, too rich for my licking as not much other malts or wheat support this. Wish the wheat was stronger, better. Not so bad, but not something I would want to have again.

Bottle had solo on 4.10.14. Looks identical to maple syrup, honestly. Totally clear. Smells great - loads of maple. Unfortunately, the flavor is too sweet.

3.3
Garrold (5291) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Tap, at the brewery. Chalkboard states 5.5%. Pale, hazy gold. Thin, white head. Sweet, and wheaty. Smells like Weetabix ladled in syrup. Not much in the way of relief from the sweetness. Taste is more of the same. Palate is a bit gluey. Some bitterness on the finish, but overall it’s too sweet for me.

Ungstrup (37677) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of maple syrup, malt, spices, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, maple syrup, wheat, caramel, and spices, leading to a dry finish.

2.8
ganache (5910) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Bomber. Nose dark and syrupy, spicy forest hops with red malt, though the pour is a deep golden that only edges over into amber. Fizzes itself out, though, no head but consistent firm carbonation. There’s a really nice subtle berry character in the nose, as well, with wheat, slight alcohol, wood. Taste is dry and spicy, light bitterness with soothing wheat and bread that last all the way through. Getting some great secondary flavors from the syrup addition, though it does make the modest alcohol run a bit hot. Hops are earthy-spicy rather than citric and complement the mild wood well, sticky medium body a bit hard and unwelcoming. An interesting thing to try once, and I really don’t dislike it at all, but I think I’d prefer it mixed with another liquid.

2.8
malrubius (2902) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle from Joe’s. Cloudy caramel color no head. Mild banana clove aroma with strong maple syrup aroma as it warms. Sweet maple syrup and ripe peach fruity sweetness with assertive minerally bitterness. Medium light body. Low carb. Very hard water or something. Okay nice attempt but not good.

3.2
jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2015
22oz bottle, bonus beer at BJCP study group, 4 oz pour into tasting glass

Aroma: sweet, slightly caramel, with some maple

Appearance: amber with slight haze, off white minimal head

Flavor: very sweet, slight bitterness, finish has a bite, not a lot of wheat, the sweetness or maple overpowers the rest of the malts, a strange taste which doesn’t taste like maple but something else persists which I can’t figure out

Mouthfeel: creaminess, medium body

Overall: Easy drinking, not a bad beer. I’d rather have a tad more wheat and a little less maple, but overall it’s drinkable, albeit a bit sweet. Something more for a dessert beer than a dinner beer.
