4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured amber with a fair bit of head. Flavor has a nice bit of fruitiness and winter spices. Very good beer. Batch 18, aged about 2 1/2 years. Held up very well, I kinda wish I would have sat on this for another 6 months, would be excellent on a cold day.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This may be my favorite beer by Allagash. Very nice palate and flavor. I love the golden color. The only 2 points that scored low w/ me was the fact that the aroma is fairly flat and that as I drank it, the Belgain lace did not stick to the glass at all.

This bottle was from batch #10. It poured a deep, cloudy, golden/orange colour. It has a fruity aroma and tastes of a blend of fruits (apple) and spices. It seems to be quite sugary as well. A very plesant, sweet beer overall.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh off my own keg! Poured a nice frothy thick head. The aroma was somewhat sweet but lacked any real strength.A hazy copper color looked inticing. Friuty taste with a smoooth aftertaste, not quite the norm as spices go, there is a hint but it is not prevelent.

Delightfully spicy, sweet flavor warms the stomach on contact. Would liken it to a bit lesser-bodied Sierra Nevada Celebration. Try it while sitting by the fire after a fine day of snowshoeing.

Very good. Allagash brings it again. If you like the other wheaty Allagash brews, this won’t disapoint.

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 doesn’t live up to its nice start. Too much carbonation for its supposed style, rough alcohol that overwhelms any flavors. It’s 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 won’t repurchase - it’s only $2 less than a really beautiful real Belgian ale anyway.

This stuff reminds me of going out to the mountains to enjoy the scenory. Whatever? Honestly it is probably the best beer I had in a while. It is a keeper.

I love this stuff. My dad just got me a case for Christmas. Be careful drinking it too quickly. You'll get a buzz. With its pleasant overall ability to please the palate, you will not be disappointed. Get some today!
