Notes/Commercial Description:
Enticing, rich and complex, this creation defies easy description. Our 'once-a-year beer' is brewed only during sugaring season with 100% maple sap from our friend Paul Marble in Fayston, VT. No water added! Just barley, hops, and ale yeast.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle poured into Lawsons snifter. Brewed in 2011, bottled in May 2012, purchased at Lawson's farmer's market release in August and cellared since then. Hard to read but looks like bottle #672 out of 750. Consumed on Christams day, because what other occasion would I open a $30 bottle?

A- Pours a translucent reddish brown copper mahogany, no head, fairly low carbonation but consistently rising bubbles, pretty much no lacing to speak of.

S- Maple Syrup, candied sugars, sweet malts, some oak, maple liquor. Nicely aromatic, fairly sweet and a little bit sugary but in a good way, unique, appealing, and a nice maple syrup presence that you can tell is pure VT maple syrup.

T- Maple syrup, belgian candied sugars typical of a triple, finishes with more maple syrup and some oak maple liquor that gives it a slight alcohol taste that blends well. Sugary aftertaste of light maple. Nicely balanced, very flavorful, and very well crafted.

M- Medium bodied to a little bit on the heavier side, slightly syrupy, fairly low carbonation, smooth especially for abv.

O- This was an interesting, unique, and well crafted offering from Lawson's. I have pure Vermont Maple Syrup pretty much every week and you can definitely tell that this was crafted with it. Pure Maple syrup is very sweet and sugary, but this beer had a nice balance of it that coupled well with the Belgian yeasts used. It was very sweet and sugary, but not overly so that it was unappetizing. It did have a tiny bit of heat to it, but I felt like it went well with the beer a nice slight maple liquor feel to it. Definitely a sipper, especially considering the price. I definitely recommend checking this out, but it's probably not something I would drink all the time. I can see this aging very well although probably not improving significantly
