Hazy golden with small head. Grainy aroma with an unusual funk, possibly due to the maple? Lots of carbonation and very light bodied. Flavor is also very understated, cloves, bananas, grain, but very light. Finish is dry and clean. I could not detect any signs of maple.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle. Thanks surge1311!

This one foamed over upon uncapping it. It didn't explode out but it came in a pretty solid initial flow then continued to bubble for some time.

A - A deep golden with a very hazy finish and a big white head (bordering on too big).

S - Lots of contributions from the wheat with a grassy, lemony aroma.

T - Crisp, clean and dry. Maybe a bit too dry. Nice flavors from the wheat with a slightly tart finish. The maple syrup is faint but contributes.

M - A moderate consistency with a high carbonation giving it a lively feel.

O - Very refreshing. Between the foam-over and dryness, I think this one over attenuated in the bottle but it was good.

A - Pours a hazy dark honey-orange with a huge fizzy light tan head that fades fast.

T - There it is. Crisp wheat with a touch of maple sweetness.

D - Tons of carbonation with a light body.

O -- Crisp, light and refreshing with a hint of maple.

Bomber into a matching Lawson's snifter. The brew appears a clear golden yellow color with a firm white cap. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass and overall the brew is pretty nice looking.

The aroma is grainy wheat with grass and sulfur notes. A little fruity to floral aspect in the back. The nose is pretty simple but clean and enjoyable.

The flavor is lightly fruity almost with a hint of something like cider. Some wheat and sulfur are also thrown in there. A faint watered down with a hint of something like earthy maple syrup in the aftertaste.

This is a light bodied brew with an effervescent amount of carbonation. A strange and unique combo of character. The fruity apple notes were not expected and didnt quite work.

A-Pours a cloudy orange hue. Thin, fizzy head grows and falls quickly. Nearl zero lacing.

S-Not getting much maple, if any. It's sweet and wheaty with a light, nearly funky aroma. A bit clove.

T-Flavor is again, devoid of maple flavor but it's decent all around. A bit of light funkiness, almost tastes Bretty. Wheat and a lasting but not intense sweetness. Some spicey clove.

M-Too carbonated. Bubbles expand over the tongue. Very light and otherwise drinkable. Refreshing.

O/D-Fairly tasty. Could use more maple but the beer's base is interesting enough.
