Pours a pretty reddish color, clear, with no head. Smells of heavy maple and wet dog. Flavor is mostly the wet dog flavor I get from most wheat beers, with only a hint of maple. Rather sweet, though. Light carbonation and just a bit muddled overall. This is my second maple beer, and I have to say I like it better than the first (Rogue). Would not get it again, but enjoyed exploring the style.

The only reason I didn't rate this lower was. Because I didn't want to assume that everyone else feels the way I do about overly sweet beer. But hey, if you like 60 grams of sugar dumped into your brew, by all means... Try this beer. This is coming from a 6th generation Vermonter who LOVES maple syrup. This beer was disgusting. I asked the bar-lady to dump it out after two sips. The second sip was strictly for the purpose of review. Anyways, here it goes:
A: looked deceivingly good. Nice dark mahogany color, with almost a marble syrup within.
S: surprisingly little maple scent, until
T: oh boy did it hit me. Maple, sugar, coma. Way too much. I was hoping for a slight hint of maple, but good lord I was wrong. Could barely taste the finer themes of the beer under all that sugar
M: wouldn't know, I spit it out so quick
O: see above

Aroma has definite maple and wheat tones, plus fruity, malty and hoppy hints. Pours a clear, dark, fizzy copper with a fairly thick pale copper-tan head. Flavor has a wheaty core with maple and fruity notes plus hints of woody hops and caramel, and just a touch of horehound. Texture has firm body and a decent amount of fizz, leaving a tingly, syrupy, slightly hoppy finish. This is a good one, so catch it while you can, no matter what series!

Absolutely a work of art. I had it back in 2010 and remember to this day exactly what it tasted like. It was that distinctive and that amazing. The maple syrup gave the beer perfect sweetness and added to its complex wheat flavor. Red, clear, and smooth this beer will be greatly missed.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to amber color with an off white head. In the aroma, mellow maple syrup and banana. In the taste, well, it's a candied banana with a touch of maple syrup in the end. A smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry candied banana flavor in the aftertaste. A bit sticky sweet, and a bit eh!

A: Good head retention with the beer being a bold amber red.
S: A little light on the smell. Some maple hints. Sugary smelling.
T: Some apple flavor initially which fades to wheat and a little dare I say stale bread taste? The maple is very subdued and the finish is very gross bitter that doesn't really have a pin pointed flavor.
M: Sits quite bubbly with a medium body. Pretty smooth.
Overall there are a lot of elements to this beer that I like. The sweetness of the maple comes through giving it an apple like taste. The wheat is slightly present as well. The problem is though, none of these flavors is really big and bold so they all subtly blend together into a rather poor tasting beer.

Poured from tap into pint glass at Lazy Boy in White Plains, NY. Wish I knew how old this was, cuse it looks like its been a while since it was retired...
This beer didnt have any real unique charateristics...plain and mild acorss the board. Over malty, almost lager like, with no maple flavor. I was so dissapointed in this brew. Not worth trying at all in my opinion...unless you want a forgetable ordinary "beer". Sorry Harpoon...not quite up to par with the rest of your stuff...
