COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash Brewing Company would like to introduce its Tenth Anniversary Ale, a special 10% ABV beer that celebrates 10 years of brewing artisinal Belgian Style ales. A unique interpretation of our flagship Allagash White, Tenth Anniversary is a blend of two different whites: a sweeter batch (brewed in February, 2005) and a drier batch (brewed in March, 2005). By blending the two batches, an additional complexity is imparted. Further complexity, most notably expressed by the delicate vanilla notes, was gained by aging some of the beer in new oak barrels.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with notes of peaches, alcohol, and hints of hops. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy - I detect coriander, but also a fruitiness with peaches coming thru. The end is dry and still spicy.

(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy golden with a small, off-white head. Spicy, citrusy nose with a distinct touch of yeast. Malty, spicy flavours with floral notes and a hint of citrus. Rather dry and fresh. Quite lovely. 031205

Hazy gold - amber beer. Softish dry palate. Subtly spiced malt with a distinct orange sherbet but also something else vegetal. Finishes dry soft and spicy with alcohol aniseed and warmth. Tasty and drinkable.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2006
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a average-sized white head. Aroma of breadiness, citrus, mustiness, and banana. Flavor of orange, banana, coriander, and spicy yeast with a dry finish.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2005
(750ml bottle) Hazy apple juice body with big off white head, most of which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, lemon, coriander, light pepper. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, lemon, some banana, cantalope, pepper, coriander, light herbal, alcohol. Creamy medium-full body that leaves a light coating on the tongue, some acidity in the finish. I was skeptical of the concept, but I should have known better than to doubt Allagash (other than for Curieux).

750 bottle yes, it popped when opening and sprayed out, even after cooling with ice&water for 2 hours, pours an off white head, cloudy golden color showing lots of effervescence. Aroma is malt&hops. Taste is sweet. Finish is dry/alcohol. An occasional, sipping Ale.
