4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Allagash. What a beautifully made beer. The aroma is hugely hoppy with loads of citrus notes like pineapple, mango and a dash of spiced notes. The flavor is highly fruity, in a great beer-like way and citrusy. Grassy notes come out in the finish. The esters in the flavor are flawless, the most tasteful banana suggestions buried under the bold flavors of hops and grain. Belgian IPA’s are usually not so amazing, but this could be the best example of one I’ve ever had.

Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, creamy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is spicy hops, pineapple, apricot, and mango esters, earthy Belgian yeast, spicy rye malt. Flavor is Belgian funky yeast, fruity esters, medium hops and bitterness, spicy hops with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Festival. Gold pour with thick white head. Aroma is citrus, lots of cereal, piney hops. Very aromatic. Taste is sweet white fruits with soapy hops. Too sweet for my liking. Heavy palate. Alcohol is discernable. Not very enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours blond with vey low white head. Aroma and taste are of fruits and malt. Overall: Not very good. Somewhat watery. I’ve never been much of a rye lover. Well I dunno why, this one did not make it for me.

bottle shared by david, thanks! pours hazy pale yellow with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. fresh cereals - rye-ish, citrusy and strawberry-like hops, floral, white grapes - very fruity. spicy-citrusy light to medium hopping for a nice slightly lingering finish. bright carbonation, light body. enjoyable, even though an assertive grainy character was anticipated.

Lovely! Pours slightly cloudy straw with a thick foamy head hat lasts a bit and long lacing. Nose is yeast, maybe some barnyard and spice. Aromas of are well layered... Flowery hops, some citrus, some cereal and a nice spice and bitter finish. Tastes are very light sweet up front with a medium bitter and dry finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Really solid beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice golden almost copper color with a big frothy eggshell head. Its a nice combination of all three breweries with nice hop notes on the nose from Maine Beer Co. and some touches of Allagash yeast strain in the background aromas... on the palate its got a nice spicy rye body from Rising Tide and a good balance with the Belgian yeast notes and fresh hops flavors. Its a good beer and Im happy to support Portland trails... but the fact they are gouging the consumer for $21 for this seems like the consumer is really the person donating the money because based on the cost I dont think it s coming out of the brewers end !

Pours clear gold with a medium white head...lively with nice retention and lacing. Aroma has some fruity notes, very faint farmy notes, and a touch of rye. Flavor has nice grassy and spicy hops...a bit of frutiness...rye...slightly perfumey but it works. Mouthfeel is medium/full and lively with a dry grassy/rye/perfumey finish.
