Golden a bit darker than a typical lager. Sweet aroma that carries through in the mouth with a bit drier spicy more almost like a rye whisky. Finishes smooth with just a touch of hops. A blend of a farmer house and standard ale. Good saison style. Picks up grassy, less virus and spice notes as it continues.

Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap: Pours a fizzy copper color with a white head. Aroma is brett funk, lemon, and other citrus, and some sugary malt. Taste is like a lightly bretted Belgian ale. Of course, everything is well-balanced and made for easy drinking. There is a mild hop bitterness that balances well with the brett. Good beer.

Bottled sample at beer bistro. Pours a beautiful golden straw colour. Very complex taste. Citrus spice hops are all present. Thus beer is a real mouthful.

2013.02.11 - Allagash Confluence - 750ml bottle in goblet glass. 2012 vintage.
Pours a very nice mostly clear golden color. Not much of a head, but a little ring and foam here and there, fed by visible bubbles at the center bottom.
Aroma is a bit sterile and medicinal to me. Grassy. It smelled kind of nice when pouring but the aroma seems less beckoning as it warms up.
Mouthfeel is pretty light. Carbonation seems pretty low.
Taste is OK. It honestly seems to be changing with each drink. There are some competing flavors here for sure. Seems to be some lemon as mentioned by others, and that is hitting my palate like a medicinal taste, or is quickly followed by a bit of medicinal sterile taste. It definitely seems like an interesting brew but I'm not enjoying it that much, to be honest. As someone else said, it comes close but ultimately that taste on the back end turns me off.
Aroma 5/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 6/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 13/20

Draught at The Gingerman NYC sept 2012. Pale yellow clear beer with a small offwhite head. Fruity, sourish, citrus and rubber aroma. Sweet, grapefruit, fruity, rubber flavour. A bit like a white halfdry wine..

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ambitious ale that almost hits the mark, faltering only a bit at the finish. Great aromas and beautiful to look at, very complex with flavors bouncing off each other but hanging together, slight funk, dark and light fruits. Only problem was a slightly metallic finish, despite drinking at the recommended temperature.

Hugely solid ale. Despite a kitchen-sink approach (dry-hopping and brett to a belgian), this beer drinks as a whole. Allagash has created something that congeals.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange color with a good head when poured.
Smells like a wild ale and starts to taste like one but that fades pretty fast.
By smell I was expecting a beer like Victory's Helios but the taste fell flat.
Still a pleasant ale to drink.

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white head. Aroma has light tropical fruits, rind and funk notes. Flavor follows suit and adds layers of grass and citrusy spice. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a dry fruit rindy/leathery finish.
