2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
batch #7. mightly golden citric aroma almost like a vitamin C tablet. somewhat astringant and mild. Mostly citrus hops to this and the carbonaion was a too much and made the beer too thin for my liking.

"Pour a hazy straw color witha a little head. little sour aroma and citrus. Bubbled in the mouth thin mouthfeel. Good i guess for cutting the grass and what not but overall not that great."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked bottle, batch #9. Dull light amber with a loose tan head. Lightly yeasty, spicy aroma with some apple esters. Crisp and effervescent upfront. The mouthfeel is a little watery though. Musky, caramel flavor with some bitterness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light and citrusy. Some hop spiciness. Not as much yeast as in the aroma. Good amount of carbonation. Generally a lemon/citrus flavor and some spice of corriander and clove. Reminds me of a wit with a some more depth.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pretty flat pour. Almost no head whatsoever. Rather light aroma, yeast, citrus, some spice and some vinyl. Better flavor than aroma. Some corriander and orange peel up front and a bit of yeast and malty sweetness at the back. Itís good, and refreshing, and itís nice to see a summer ale thatís neither a Hefe or a Wit.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A woderfully cloudy appeaance within a gold color with a thick, tight head when poured but dissipates into a thin, white layer. Big clovey spiciness at the forefront of the aroma with lemon and a slight soapiness. Flavor is big belgian spiciness not unlike a saison with clove, ginger, pepper, lemon, cedar, and an earthy mustiness....yum. It is dry but there is also a silkiness to the overall palate. The flavor is much more complex than the aroma, but this is a nice beer and deserves extreme kudos for this level of flavor and that low of an alcohol content. This ale has the balance of Dupont Moinette and less alcohol than Dupont Saison.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting, I felt like this one was almost there, just lacking a little something. There were some great aromas and flavours present, but there was also a very strong bitter malt mouth feel and taste that turned me off. Typically I like belgian ales to be not heavy on the obviously malty side. This one disappointed. It was bitter which is fine, but it seemed to be an offensively bad bitter. Loads of yeasty goodness. Still well crafted, maybe just not up to my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured orange with a thin white head. Descent retention. Smell had orange,citrus, banana, cloves and a touch of alcohol. Taste was very nice with quite a bit of wheat. Mouthfeel was my favorite part with the orange working quite nicely. Citrus came in strong at the end. I have to get more into Allagash because I was pleased with this.
