3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma is spicy, wheaty, medium sweet. Pretty light golden body, thick white head. Flavorful wheat blend, spicy without the notorious Allagash tendency toward over-sweetness. This is my favorite of Allagash’s offerings so far.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2009 Oddly enough, at first whiff this hazy white beer smells almost chronically hoppy with a nice dose of coriander. The aroma is a real adventure as this beer breathes and warms up. Next it moves onto smelling like the perfect ginger bread house, and then medicinal like a honey ginger cough drop. All along the taste follows suit, although in a slightly muted way. This was a very interesting beer, mostly because of the aroma. The heavy-handed spicing became quite un-bearable as it warmed, which was unfortunate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours bright gold into a snifter. Bright white head recedes to skim surface and hug rim. Orange, ginger and funky alcohol aromas. Marshmallow upfront turning spicy cloves in the middle and orange citrus hop in the finish. Went great with traditional Swiss fondue.
