Found this recipe in a book I have "Clone Brews". This beer is very easy to drink, even at 8.5%. Beautiful copper color, head is always there, nice medium body, at first taste you smell the maple syrup as well as taste it, not too strong at all. Minimal bitterness. Finishes very nicely! Overall clean flavor.

This sounds really good. I like the use of Willamette hops , they are one of my faves.
I have always been scared to use maple syrup thinking it would be too strong a flavor.
Did you use a dark or lighter syrup? What yeast did you use?
You could replace the pale for munich or vienna next time and have a maltier beer = Weizenbock. Cheers.

P.S. I like your back splash. Looks like you need a SWMBO.

1: )The yeast strain i used was wyeast 3056.
2: )I used dark maple syrup.
3: ) How mapley? on a scale of 1-10 i would say 8-9. Strong aroma of maple syrup as well.
