COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash Grand Cru is deep golden in color, and has a firm yet refined malty palate. Taste and aroma have suggestions of smoke and licorice, with subtle hints of fruit and spice. An excellent beer to enjoy during the cooler seasons.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2013
on tap at Duckworths (NC) Pour is a bit light for the style. The clear amber body is covered by a bone head that has great retention Mouthfeel: near medium body with appropriate, medium carbonation. Taste and Aroma: Plenty of alcohol esters and Belgian yeast. Also rather sweet. Wild yeast in the flavor that is not apparent in the nose, and ultimately produces an unpleasant aftertaste. O: unusual for style, this Belgian ale was disappointing but should appeal more to folks who like wild yeast in their beers more than I do.

Lukaduke (2360) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Draft at Novare Res. Glad to see they re brewed this since 2008... Classic beer that I used to drink pretty often back in the late 90’s. Pours a clear golden color with a two plus finger sticky foam head. Aromas are classic fruity belgian yeast, light warming spice and a touch of honey malt. The palate is crisp yet round, big yeasty fruit, apple, pear, honey and lots of balanced spice complexity that lingers through the finish. Great winter offering that Id like to see in a bottle again.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a small head. Nose has some dark fruit elements to it with just a hint of orange. Taste seems a little dry at first, but ends up a slightly bitter with just a hint of sweetness.
