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.

beautiful amber hue, the aroma is fruity and cloves. the crisp maltiness mellows and the cloves seep in as the beer warms. no hoppiness, just malt sweetness, and it stays all the way down. some sediment in the beer i had. a very pleasant beer.

12 oz bottle-pours a big rich to shaving cream light tan head that laces and hazy amber color. Aroma is medium malt-musty caramel, herbal-ginger. Taste is lots of medium malt/grainy-musty caramel, secondary spices/herbal-ginger, faint medium/dark fruit, smooth, malty, yeasty. Nice mouth feel. Soft carbonation works well.

Yeasty, spicey, fruity aroma. Hazy orange color with a head that tries to lace while departing. Thin to medium body; creamy carbonation. Touch of orange flavor, maybe some clove, mildly sweet caramel/candy. Arguably seeded fruit flavors present - touch of pear? Spicey and fruity, but it all blends very well. Seems to have a touch of golden sultana. Really very good stuff. The finish is not overly sweet and the spice hangs around somewhat. Perhaps a bit of anise. Any hop is fruity rather than bitter. Good drink.

Bottle. Poured a hazy deep amber with a large creamy off-white head that was lasting. Heavy spicy citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Good complex balanced flavor with an average duration finish. Another good Allagash brew.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Light beige head. Sweet, herbal, fruity and caramelly aroma. Flavour is flowery, caramelly, has alcoholnotes and fruitnotes. Is quite citric and acidic and quite grapish sour. Medium bodied. Nice balanced. Light bitter and sweet in the end. Good one.

750 mL bottle, batch #8. Pours clear and clean copper with a tall fizzy and frothy "loud" head that stays mostly throughout with lined lacing. Cellared oak and yeast (dust) start with sweet ligthly roasted caramel malts following and wheat, fruit (banana, grape) and spice notes. Sweet medium acidic caramel malt flavor with yeast and fruits to finish. Medium bodied and fizzy palate that ends somewhat dry, very lively carbonation.
