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.

2012 Release of 2011's brew. Bottle #1 of 750 poured into a snifter.

A-crystal clear dark amber, with a small tan head that dissipated quickly.

S–a bouquet of maple sweetness and alcohol.

T–the Maple Tripple dances on your entire pallet, engaging every taste bud. Maple sweetness is joined with slight malt and yeast flavors and the beer finishes with a hint of relative bitterness. It was very sweet, but never cloying. It was extremely complex, but never muddled. A display of incredible brewing finesse.

M–A perfect viscosity, that coats your tongue long enough to savor each sip. It wasn't syrupy or heavy though.

O–By far the best beer I have ever had. It is most similar to Avery's 2011 Beast but it somehow avoids all of that beers small imperfections. The beauty of the beer is the complexity that comes out of its simplicity. It has 4 ingredients (concentrated maple sap, barley, yeast and hops) and they come together in a way that surpassed my very high expectations

Out of this world! Best VT beer I've had to date! That is saying something. This beer is well worth the price of admission. Thank God above I showed up at the warren store on the right day!

Great beer, although I get the feeling it was named "maple triple" because "maple quad" didn't have as good of a ring. A 2012 bottle, enjoyed in 2013.

Pours an opaque brown, with a tan head - not huge, but poured into small glasses.

Beer is 12%, but it's as smooth as maple syrup (rimshot please). It's big bodied, and has light but sufficient carbonation.

Aroma is sweet, malty, think prune, raisin or date.

Tastes of molasses, figs, raisins, caramel, hints of maple, hints of chocolate. The best way to describe this is that it tastes like the perfect trappist quad - but not as bubbly as westy.

Mouthfeel is smooth an full, some lingering sweetness, but no booze or astringency.

This beer is well worth the $25 price tag.
