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.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Cellared 750 ml. bottle, I believe batch #16, shared with friends, and poured to snifters showing a hazed, amber hue, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam, and light, waves & spots of lacing. The nose was smooth malt, with still a lively fruit scent, light spice, sweetness, and some vigilant alcohol presence. Light to medium bodied, the perky effervescence was smoothed by a subtle silkiness to the mouthfeel, and the fruit expression and alcohol were mellowed pleasantly by age in the flavor. Remained a comfortable Cru.

750 ml bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, caramel, dried fruit, yeast, mild spices, vanilla, oak, coriander, dry finish. Solid offering, disappointing that they pulled out of Ohio.

10 ounce draft at Bad Apple. Cereal and bread yeast in the aroma. Clear yellow appearance and heavy lacing. Apples and grain flavors jump out. It's a big and assertive tasting beer, a little like a cider. Medium bodied, crisp and bubbly. Overall good if you're into this style.

750 ml bottle shared by Keirís drunk ass at the Side Project release- thanks again, Keir! 2006 vintage. Pours a semi-cloudy deep golden color with no head. Notes of caramel, dried fruits, sugar, cookies, biscuit, and some mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. Probably better when it isnít 7 years old. Iíll try a newer vintage someday soon.
