Hello maple enthusiasts! We’re seeking participants for a maple syrup flavor experiment – the experiment will involve tasting several samples of pure maple syrup and assessing their flavor. To participate as a panelist, you must:

-Have experience tasting and evaluating the flavor of maple syrup (or have completed the IMSI Grading School or other syrup flavor training)
-Be at least 18 years old
-Be a healthy, nonsmoker

The experiment will be held at the Proctor Maple Research Center in Underhill, Vermont (https://goo.gl/maps/RcFKS3kYQr72) and will take about 20-30 minutes to complete. And to help facilitate physical distancing, we'll be holding 4 separate sessions of the experiment:
- 9:00 a.m. June 14th
- 10:30 a.m. June 14th
- 9:00 a.m. June 15th
- 10:30 a.m. June 15th
Please email me (avan@uvm.edu) by June 6th to let me know which of the 4 sessions you’d like to attend.

Feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!
