750ml Bottle: Aroma of fruit, yeast, pepper, Belgian malts, and slight citrus. Poured golden/amber in color with a large, loose, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Lightly cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Small lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of fruit, pepper, yeast, light Belgian malts, slight coriander, and a hint of caramel. Light to medium body. Thinish, lightly dry texture. Average to slightly lively carbonation. Yeast and pepper finish is lightly dry. 8.3%ABV is totally hidden.

Looks great. Rich golden color, vanishing white head. Surprisingly little lace for an Allagash, but then sweet potatoes probably have less protein than their usual wheat and barley grain mix. Nose of a Belgian tripel with ... cabbage? Taste of a Belgian tripel, slightly peppery, slightly sweet, with cabbage? Carrots? The finish is vegetal ... and seriously weird, which fades, leaving hints of hops and pepper. Minus a couple of bonus points because it is too expensive and too alcoholic to be this unpleasant. Now ... who can I give the rest of the case to? And I’m usually a huge fan.

On draft at the new Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont Circle. Second best draft of the night. Deep golden straw hue with a medium white head. Aroma of malt and orange. Very full mouth, flavor of orange peel and coriander, maybe a hint of clove. Very nice indeed.

Enjoyed this at a tasting tour held at the brewery, I was without pen or paper but the beer was incredulously complex one really needs to sit down to work out to determine all the subtle complexities.
