Notes/Commercial Description:
Peak Maple Collaboration is a truly local project. It’s a new twist on our previously brewed Maple Oat Ale. We worked with local farmers and small businesses to craft this beer with Maine-grown organic oats from GrandyOats and Vermont-produced organic maple syrup from Butternut Mountain Farms. The Maple Collaboration is a copper-colored brew with a dynamic mouth feel from the organic oats and a subtle richness in the finish from the organic maple syrup. The beer is in support of Chefs Collaborative, the nation’s leading environmentally conscious culinary organization.

Poured into an ale glass.

Looks good at first sight. Nose has plenty of maple syrup - certainly smells fresh from VT. Maybe some burnt sugar there with some malt and oats. Nose is the best thing this beer has got going for it. Upon first taste I was truly let down. Syrupy mouthfell as well.

Look -- I think if you have "maple" on the lable, it should have some sweetness, some smoothness. This beer has neither.

To be fair, it's advertised as being grown with oats. Maybe that accounts for its grainy taste and chewy mouth feel. You will be disappointed if you expect a sweet, smooth "maple" taste -- there is none.
