Maple Butter Tart Ale (5% abv) was the winner of the Collaboration Nation North competition at the 2015 edition of the Session Muskoka beer festival, and has since become a popular annual release for the brewery. It’s described as follows:
Maple Butter Tart Ale is a deep amber colour with a creamy head. Vivid aromas of maple, butter rum pudding, vanilla, and caramel candy lead the way for notes of pie crust, toffee, molasses and chocolate. This ale boasts a dry, medium-bodied, creamy, well balanced crisp-hoppy bitterness. It then gives way to flavours of maple, toffee and malt, along with subtle notes of fruit, amber rum and butter on a long, enjoyable finish.
Maple Butter Tart Ale is available now in 473 ml cans at the Sawdust City retail store and online shop. A wider release at LCBO stores throughout Ontario will follow soon.
