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.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2011
A wheaty, sweet, yeasty brew that sips like a fine cider. Quick notes of orange jam are followed by parade of flavors, as apples, lemons, honeybuns, cinnamon, and brown sugar all flow by. The finish is mildly dry, but mainly spicy and festive. Looks kinda ugly, and the nose ain’t much, but the taste makes everything okay. (3/30/09)

Bottle consumed in my hotel room in Boston, Mass last October. Dark golden coloured pour with a medium off white head. Typical Belgian sweet/spice aroma. Tastes quite sweet, yeasty, fruity, caramel, spice. Typical American Belgian clone but still very good and rather drinkable.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Aroma has a nutty maltiness with spice notes. Reminds me a bit of a triple but lighter. Smooth taste with the spice notes more apparent. Really a lovely beer especially on tap.

Aroma is that of a darker belgian triple. The appearance is a darker golden color with light carbonation. Taste is very similar to the aroma, however there are spices that linger on the tongue firmly after the swallow. Decent beer, however: it is not worth buying again in my mind.

Draft. Golden color. Spicy nose with little head. Not a bad strong golden. Very spicy. Good carbonation. Belgian candy comes through nicely

750ml bottle from Winooski.
Appearance : Hazy amber with a small head.
Aroma : Fruits and spices. Some brown sugar.
Taste : Fruity and spicy with brown sugar. Some belgian yeast too. Dry finish.
Overall : Nice belgian yeast. Not really my thing. Too spicy. Well made but not my thing at all.
