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.

if it says maple on it, chances are i am buying it, and thats not just pertaining to beer. i am a lush for good maple syrup, and anything it graces, so this was a no brainer for me. i expected a little more out of it though. it has a nice maple nose on its amber to pale brown color, but its not real vivid in the flavor, and i think a lot of its glory is either fermented out, or lost to the bit of oxidation my bottle had (did not see a date). the flavor was real malt driven, sturdy and well built, autumnal for sure, almost german bock-esque here, but the maple sort of blends in a little too well with the caramel and toffee and brown butter flavors, its just not rising up like i thought it would. still it brings the maple candy sweetness to the table, and does linger in the finish, more like the sap than the syrup though, and as always, i wish for more of it. well made beer though, and the lighter mouthfeel is a refreshing change of pace in this type of beer, its got huge bubbles and plenty of them, makes it seem light. good beer, but not the maple bomb i still seek...

Very maple forward but had enough body to carry it through. Pretty good job from PO.

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.
