Any review of this is a bit skewed, I guess, as it was only available at EBF.. so even my review isn't entirely reliable.. A full review with notes on all 5 aspects isn't really possible (nor would it have been fun to take out my iphone and start typing at EBF) so just a general idea of what it was like is all that can be offered.. I did, however, make sure that it was one of the first beers I tried all night (and I had at least 5 pours of it) so I could really remember it and it was certainly awesome.. In a lot of ways (appearance, mouthfeel, etc) it was similar to Palo Santo.. even slightly in the flavor, however there was the presence of both the maple syrup and a slight presence from the peppercorn in the end of the sip. It's medium bodied and didn't have too much weight to it (again, I was able to have many pours throughout the night), to compare it to Palo Santo, again, it had less of an overall sweetness and a slightly lighter body to it, both of which worked really well for a beer to serve at a fest.. It was a bit crisp. Like a (slightly) sweetened brown ale with a strange (in a good way) aftertaste which set is apart from other beers, though it would be hard to put your finger on what it was without knowing the ingredients.
Truly upsetting that it won't be available year round, let alone ever (?), but it was definitely awesome to have it..
