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.

750 ml bottle Spicy, heady nose with scents of lemon, jasmine, and orange. Flavor berry-sweet, complicated, smooth but gently frothing on the tongue. Exquisite red in rounded Delirium Tremens glass, with a thick, fine head that slips slowly down in a shimmering stream... Dreamy, if I may say so (and I think I may).

gonzo46and2 (108) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Red beer with a belgian froth to it. Had a few when tasting so my taste was a bit biased but very good. Fruit and belgian yeast on the nose. Clean and a bit heavy but very drinkable.

This is not the best offering from Allagash. it is still good however. Just not their best

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.

It’s no Allagash White! It makes Josh ’Hoppy’. Prolly would be good with food, but just sampling in the bar it was a little heavy/strong for my liking. I don’t know maybe I got a bad one seeing how so many others enjoyed!

Ingy (100) - candler, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2007
bottle. hazy orange with off white head, minimal lacing. fruits, spice, candy with a sweet and sour flavor. Maybe a little thinner than I would have hoped for. Nice while watching the leaves change color. Enjoyable.

Hazy amber color with a thin head. Fruity aromas, orange, cherry, and lemon. Taste starts with a large malt that gives up its sweetness and fades back to the citrus tones. Full bodied.

GregL40 (97) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Foamy head with an airy aroma. Loose texture. Can’t put my finger on the flavor. The 7.2% ABV was nicely masked.

Tippie4 (97) - Auburn, Maine, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Nice golden color with a small sweet taste to it. Very enjoyable and soothing, allagash makes great beer

Colour is cloudy-amber orange. Minimal head on mine, but I think it was partly due to the glass I was provided with. Great peach-tangerine aroma. Smooth and tasty, hard to put my finger on the flavours, but not bitter or too alcoholic. I’m a fan of the Allagash beers and this one deserves the designation of "Grand Cru".
