Maple syrup displays a complex aromatic palette. This is due to numerous factors such as the point in the season, weather conditions, sap harvesting methods (buckets or tubing), evaporation methods, and others, such as the position of the sun, height of the tap, age of trees, and acidity of soils.
Vanilla, brown sugar, flowers, fruits, golden sugar, coffee... So many flavours depending on the syrups produced in various regions (refer to the flavour wheel for maple products). Depending on the use that you make of it, a rich amber syrup will be perfect for dressings while a full-bodied, very dark syrup will have the intensity required to braise meats.
Les Sucreries Beaurivage offer four maple syrup grades for the enjoyment of all. We've got you covered!
