What a late night, after dinner or cold evening treat. Was lucky enough to make it up to Vermont for the release of this beer and have always wanted to try this.
No head and not supposed to be. A nice autumn brown/amber color with excellent clarity. Based on the look, you are more likely to check for legs vs. lace.
Shocking that this smells like real maples syrup.. I’m not talking about Aunt Jemima or Log Cabin.. but the real stuff. I’d also say some brown sugar as well.
Wonderful and very different. Doesn’t feel like a beer, doesn’t drink like a beer, but still wonderful. A kicked up Maple liqueur with a kick. The brown sugar notes are here as well. A nice subtle bitterness just below the surface that balances what could be some overbearing sweetness.
Definitely bold in body and a touch sticky.. Just a slight touch of carbonation..
Just a pretty cool beer… Well done sir.

A- A dark amber body with a thin white layer of bubbles on top.
S- Maple is there, with a lot of oak coming through from a malty body.
T- Nice malty oaky body followed by a huge rush of sugary maple syrup.
M- Thick and syrupy. A definite sipper that sticks to your mouth for a long time after each taste.
O- An innovative beer that cannot truly be categorized. There are very few beers that are "out there" and this is one of them.

Thanks to Joeybones3 for this one. Shared with the local crew at an impromtu tasting on 8/10.
bottle 404 / 750 - bottled may 2012
a - looks like maple syrup. pretty still with very soft carbonation if any. really attractive amber maroon color, but still.
s - nice sweet smell. some maple and subdued booze. good brown sugar notes.
t - in a word...maple syrup. strong brown sugar. very tasty indeed, but not very beer like.
m - minimal carbonation but easy to drink. very soft and the ABV is invisible.
o - overall, VERY impressed. kind of like a braggot. different, but damn tasty!

As usual, thanks to jh1982 for bringing this out to the disc golf-pool party-ufc silva/sonnen II Saturday.
Pours out looking like well, maple syrup would if it was a little more viscous. Decent head and retention given that there is no water added to make this beer. Crazy. Aroma, everything Lawson's does that I've had is top notch, and their/his maple is the cream of the crop. No different here. Instead of harsh band aid-medicinal belgian yeast, this smells like breakfast.
Tastes nothing like any tripel I've ever had either. Sweet. Mild orange peel, this shares more in common with gran marinier than it does a tripel. Sticky-caramel, carbonation helps that a little, but hey, given what went into the beer, pretty understandable. Minimal oak/wood notes, this is all about the maple. As usual, tastes nowhere as big as it really is.
A good beer for sharing, I dunno if I would drink 12oz all to myself, but I'd be down to try, but its a gem more worth sharing, so thanks for sharing james! My favorite tripel, if it counts as a tripel. . .

Pours thick and dark golden, no head to speak of; legs trail slowly down the sides of the glass. Looks pretty much like pure maple syrup. Aroma follows suit. Before tasting I know this will be the most heavily maple-flavored beer I’ve ever had and it sure is. Hard to call it beer, almost. Flavor of mildly boozy maple syrup. Not many other flavor notes discernible. Brown sugar, caramel maltiness, very faint floral hops which contribute a subtle bitterness. Thick, chewy, and slightly cloying, a bit sticky, quite sweet, totally unique. What can I say? I loved it. If you are a maple fan this is hands down the one beer you have to try. If you don’t like sweet beers or maple flavor you should steer far clear.

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
