4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Black Back: Pours cloudy straw with a thin white head. Aroma of tart, barnyard funk, and a little breast. Taste is confusing but great. Slightly tart, bitter, wheat, funk, and lemony. Light to medium body, nice carbonation and a smooth finish. Nice beer!

Starts out with an incredibly complex nose (a little chalky but deep). Looks of a fine frothy Belgian-white brew. Flavors are complex but light between spicy and floral. Palate is smooth yet complimentary to the subtle spice notes. I would almost call this a wit beer matured into a Belgian. Really nice for those who enjoy exploring subtle flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 On tap at beachwood Seal Beach poured into a tulip. Golden yellow haze with tall white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is funky, pear, wine, honey, and some spice. Flavor was tart pear/cherry, grassy and earthy bitterness, a touch of grain sweetness. Light bodied, silky texture, med-high prickly carbonation, dry finish.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Allagash chalice. Pours a translucent gold with a large froth of white foam Good retention. The aroma has notes of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango I get some drier funky notes. The taste is dry, grassy, mildly bitter. I get a bit of bread in the middle to end of the drink. Medium carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Very refreshing.

Light, subtle aromatics of spice, citrus orange, and a slight sour undertone. Very complex and tasty, no sweetness. I highly recommend.

2012 vintage. Pours a medium golden color with three fingers of thick white foam. the nose is bright with barnyard brett, rustic grain, spicy yeast esters and a touch of tropical fruit. The palate follows with great balance... almost too much balance as i want something to really take charge and say "whats up!" Great converstaion between traditional saison sensibilities and a wild brett fermented beer. Spicy tropical notes ride along with a rustic grainy fieldgrass notes. Quenching refreshing finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Victory Bar and Grill.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a thin white head, settling into a thick ring with a light coating.
Aroma: Rather light aroma, but complex. Floral, sweet orange, rustic earthiness, with hints of leather and play-doh. This smells very nice.
Taste: Refreshing! Mild malts with hints of sweet orange and light leather on the finish. This is balanced nicely.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, highly carbonated.
Overall: Good-great beer, but like most Allagash this has poor price to quality ratio. This is a beer worth drinking though.

Golden ale tastes like brie and butter like a non onion obatzer with some funk. Weird.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter showing a hazed, gold color, with a modest, fluffy head of white foam that reduced gradually to a ring & film, and left some clingy ribbons of lacing. The nose was some under control yeasty funk, fruit, spice, sweetness, and subtle cookie/graham cracker. The flavor was similar notes plus some low bitterness and tartness. Lively carbonation and creamy smoothness to the mouthfeel helped project a fuller than medium body, as the finish was lightly sweet & moderately dry.
