3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy amber with not a whole lot of head. The ginger aroma is very evident right off the bat; reminds me of dark ’n stormies. The problem with me (maybe just me) is that I drink a fair share of dark ’n stormies & I don’t really think that the combination of heavy ginger with the taste of a traditional Belgian strong ale goes very well. It does even out after a few sips, but it’s just not for me. Finishes clean, & very well done, & an interesting beer, nonetheless.

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.
