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.

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.
