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.

Picked this beer up in September at the Waitsfield Farmer's Market. Well, first I drove to the Mad Taco and waited on line to get a ticket that allowed me the possibility of purchasing this beer at said Market. Coming from New York, this was quite the beer geek journey, and well worth it.

The appearance is dark brown with little to no lacing. The consistency is truly amazing, considering there was no water used in the brew process. The smell is sweet and bourbon-like. The taste is excellent. A sugary maple taste, with notes of toffee and caramel. Just awesome.

Overall, just an outstanding ale, unlike anything else. Brewed by the very best!

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!

2013 bottle, poured into a large stemmed wine glass. Pours a deep transparent brown with a ruby tinge. Maybe a millimeter of head that settles to some khaki wisps floating on the top.

Smell is of maple, toffee, butter, caramel, peat. Very alluring!

Taste is sweet, semi-sugary. Maple forward followed by dark fruit flavor like prunes.and malty. Maybe a hint of bourbon. Almost a bubblegum-like flavor.

Expected to be heavier and syrupy in the mouth. Fairly medium bodied. No carbonation to speak of.

Overall this was a very interesting beer that I'm excited I got to try. I'm not always a fan of dark tripels so I was not wowed. Will try this again when I can get it fresh to compare to this almost year old bottle.
