Thanks to damienblack for this bottle among other eastern treasures; wanted this one the moment I heard about it. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

The pour, conducted expertly by my 11 year old daughter, is fraught with overcarbonation. Head overtops the two goblets & gets all over my poor daughter, who now smells like beer. Hope the child welfare people don’t stop by. Nose is wheat &…funk? Funk. Not sour, more like saison-level funk. Not liking where this starts up.

Lawson’s Maple Wheat is half right, at least. No hint of maple anywhere in the near vicinity. Overwhelming dint of funkiness slashed, but not enough, with grain & raw wheat. The effect is something of a cross between Jolly Pumpkin & a traditional hefe - & it’s not good. The stupid carbonation inhibits what enjoyment I might have been able to pull out of this; 11 ounces is far too much.

I can’t believe this was the brewer’s intent. Funk, overcarbonation, missing maple all point to the start of an infection, or something unpleasant. Perhaps my first bad beer from Lawson’s. A drain pour disappointment.

3.13/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

On draft at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury, VT.

Poured a hazy bright straw hue with a one ginger got white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell was devoid of any maple element and essentially left me with some wheat spice and weak esters.

The trade was likewise bland, with maple to be had.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.

Overall a poor beer considering the expected maple element.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to my cousin Jeff for picking this one up for me. Pours a pale straw with a big foamy head. The aroma is sweet, with lots of spices. The beer taste like a below average wheat beer, some bubble gum, a little spice. I do not taste any maple. The beer is light, effervescent, and easy drinking. I was expecting more out of this brew, it was graded so harshly due to it lacking any maple flavor at all.
