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.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 Re-rated 12/5/2006. I decided to buy another bottle at another store to see if perhaps the first bottle was not up to par given my first rating of 2.6. Pour was identical to first bottle. This bottle was a bit more aromatic with notes of apple, citrus and sweet malt. Not much fruit noted in the flavor. In fact, the flavor is fairly indistinct. Thin mouthfeel. I ended up adding three points on this re-rate, but I think I have to accept that I just donít care for this beer.

Original rating. 12 oz. bottle. Poured a hazy brown/gold with a thin off-white head. Very light aroma of malt and some grassy notes. Light flavored and light bodied with some citrus noted along with some malt sweetness. Watery, thin mouthfeel. I did not care for this one and it certainly did not strike me as a winter brew.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - JAN 1, 2008
The 750 ml bottle from batch 16 poured a cloudy ruby orange with a white billowy head. Aromas of Bananas and Belgium yeast along with a complement of spices filled my nose. This ale had a nice clean mouth feel with a dry finish. The flavors of this one was surely a surprise for a grand cru it was a lot more bitter than I expected for the style. The hops and citrus flavors were very pronounced with a sweetness lightly coming thru towards the finish. This is really interesting brew but I have had much better grand cruís especially in this price range .Iíll finish this one but wonít be looking for more.

Pours golden with an orange rich haziness and a light beige head. Smell is sweet and yeasty with light spice notes. Taste is sweet caramel, belgian yeast and body is full and creamy. Just too sweet and yeasty for me...

Pours a deep hazy golden-amber color, nose is like a bag of rotten potpouri, taste is super boozy, well too overcarbonated, grab bag of spices, anise, pepper, dark candy sugar, just not my taste at all.

The label says beer brewed with spices, and the flavor compliments the label. I can taste nothing but interesting spices. Has a very different flavor. This is not a beer I would go for again though. I think the weird spice is clove, but I canít really pinpoint it.
