A late run of sugar-maple sap gathered after the buds have begun to swell and usually producing syrup of poor quality.

Le sirop de bourgeon qui en résulte doit être conservé séparément du sirop de bonne qualité [...] Une fois que la sève de bourgeon commence à couler, l'arbre ne produira que ce type de sève.
