Draught. Sample.

Not what I expected! The bartender kept giving me random samples at random once we made the beer dweeb connection. In the din of the pub, I didn't catch anything other than "Farmhouse Ale" when he passed this to me, so I was expecting something drier. But, I love blind tastings...

Got pear and slight pepper at the nose. Loved the light carbonation and creamy mouthfeel.

Honey more than maple up front going right to "tree" notes that are more indicative of the maple used in the brewing process. Goes to fruity graininess for a second and the the maple rick rolls you, throws horns and coats the back of your throat with a pleasant sweetness that's just perfect.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: cloudy; golden colored; 2+ finger white head that receded slowly to a thin cap; nice thick lacing;

S: maple up front; then Belgian yeast takes over;

T: Belgian yeast, followed by lemon zest at mid-palate; some bitterness from mid-palate through finish; maple comes through a little at the end; alcohol isn't very evident until well after the swallow;

Light bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: different take on the style; for me, the maple didn't help, bit it wasn't overdone; yeast was VERY prevalent;
