3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a light aubrun with a lasting fluffy tan head.
Aroma: Fruity spicy yeast, candi sugar, brown sugar and cloves.
Taste: Candi sugar, clove, spicy hop, spicy malt. Came off a bit boozy as well.
Mouthfeel: Fizzy and thick.
Overall: Reminded me of many Unibroue beers. There are many other Allagash beers I enjoy more, and donít mind paying $5.00 more for their fancier stuff

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
29th June 2008. Brewed with honey and spcies. Batch #16. A frothy light crisp beer. Gentle fruit and mild spice dominate a very mild malt base. Very drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Beautiful beige head, lovely lace that lasts & lasts, gorgeous dark gold color. In a tulip glass, the peaches aroma is promisng. But the rest of the beer doesnít live up to its nice start. Too much carbonation for its supposed style, rough alcohol that overwhelms any flavors. Itís just not complex - all alcohol and malt. It looks plausibly Belgian, but lacks all the real Belgian characteristics. The best you can say is that lace is very nice. I wonít repurchase - itís only $2 less than a really beautiful real Belgian ale anyway.

Pretty sweet (too sweet? - if so, just barely), nice hoppiness, tastes like peaches and raisins, some sourness, really good

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky golden color with an almost grainy looking texture - canít tell if itís heavy bubbles, or are there little bits of sediment in it? Smell is heavy and sweet. The taste has an immediate sour tang that overwhelms the tongue and dissipates into a dark, nutty fruitiness. Malty and seems pretty viscous. Itís interesting, and it has a whole lotta complexity, but itís not something Iíd go for too often.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted at brewery, batch 19 (8 months old). Clear and dark golden with a creamy head. Aroma is lightly roasted malt and a bit of tang. Feels heavy, best to drink in a small glass. I canít get all the flavors but there are a lot of them. Yay beer!
