Backlog. Draft at Teresa’s. Pours a hazy golden body with thick white lacing. Aroma is spice, malt, dark fruit, light floral hop and cream. Mouthfeel is medium to light with soft fruits and vanilla upfront, followed by a nice spicy hop character and additional notes of earth, citrus, grapefruit and flowers.

Pours unclear amber malty in color with red clay white head. The aroma brings lightly sweet aged oaky malt notes with some alcohol notes at the end. The flavor brings some aged malt notes with the alcohol presence still there and some starch like flavors.

Hazy amber beer. Dry frothy palate. Immediate vegetable spice that dominates the creamy malt. A bit like ginger but it’s not ginger! Frothy in the mouth, it finishes dry with some warmth. As so often with Allagash - interesting but not quite inspiring.
