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.

750ml bottle. Nice reddish amber color with a thick off white head. Spicy aroma with hints of clove/coriander. Medium-Full body. Sweet and fruity with a slightly noticeable alcohol presence. Not quite as complex as authentic Belgian Aleís, but almost as good as better than many.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2002
Amber to copper color with a medium eggshell head. Yeasty, hoppy, citrusy and spicy in the nose. I was quite surprised at the citrusy aroma of Cascade and Centennial hops. Yeasty and spicy flavors. Quite typical of a hefe (similar to Maissels). My only complaint is a long, not entirely pleasant aftertaste. I canít describe it, but I didnít like it. Nearly didnít rate it because I couldnít describe the aftertaste.

A nice surprise. Good flavor - a fine beer for cold nights.

Oakes (13154) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2001
Light brown, hazy; great floral malts and coriander, cardamom in the nose; palate is not as flowery, but good malt development, alcohol and slightly hot pepper in the finish.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - NOV 30, 2001
Heady black pepper and ginger nose amid a deep red-brown, nearly opaque body and tan, lacey head. Lively spiciness, most prevalently coriander and black pepper, combined with a hoppy zestiness, producing a flavor similar to the aroma of burning autumn leaves. Smokey and slightly bitter, this is rather peculiar, but itíll grow on you.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - NOV 29, 2001
Deep copper to red with a frothy head. Very spicy aroma, most notable were ginger and black pepper, some hints of lemon. The first sip is overwhelming, mostly musty but once you get over the initial shock its very good. Crisp and malty with a great spicy character.

scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2001
Beatiful reddish-brown opaque color. The aroma doesnít bring out all the flavors in the beer. The flavor is definitely smokey, however it becomes more subtle after a few drinks. Nice spicey flavor similar to Allagash White comes out especially at the finish.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2001
UPDATED: APR 29, 2003 4/29/03: 750ml, batch 1, year unknown, but at least 6 months old. Completely clouded old-cider-like brown color (when it get chunky; although no chunks are in the beer) Spicy (smokey sweet) and with a solid malt kick. Damn good but heavy on the palate. Old rating: A bit sweet, but still has a clean taste to it.

Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2001
It has a cloudy amber colour with a beautiful creamy head. Nice lace. Smells a bit like disinfectant. Quite fresh and fruity (grapefruit?), slightly sweet. Touch of bitterness in the finish.
