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.

daknole (8856) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle from total wine. I like the Allagash family of beers, this one is no exception. Amber pour with a nose of spices, sweet citrus, and yeast. Flavor is very nice. Malty, fruity, spicy and some candy sugar/caramel. Nice!!

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Hazy, deep amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Nutty, spicy nose with clove and smoke phenols. Citrus fruit hops; fuzzy fruit esters. Sweet, spicy flavor with blasts of coriander and caramel and a suggestion of hops without any real bitterness. Almost full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, mildly sweet, warming finish.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2004
Spiced Belgian style, very similiar to Unibroue. Excellent aroma, nice white creamy foam and carbation. Cloudy orange brown color. Yeast with noticeable pieces. Moderate malt and citrus orange peel, pear, hint bannana very pleasant fruit and herbs. Coriander (which may reduce fertility). Bonus for complexity. Good competition for wine.

330 mL into Orval trappist. Pours a bright, cloudy orange with a thin white head that thins out to almost nothing leaving modest lacing. Aromas of yeast, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, orange peel- very musty. Taste is dry and tart with a metallic tinge. Very herbal. Aftertaste is dry and metallic. Sort of a disappointment.
