ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2013
10 ounce pour - $6.00 at Leon’s Full Service in Decatur, Georgia as part of their Allagash Takeover event.

Appearance: Bronze-colored beverage, hazed, with a two-inch cap of whitish sea foam-like suds.

Smell: Touches of citrus fruits and dried cilantro atop notes of soft, bready malts and store-bought sugar cookies.

Taste: Light, bready malts, a bit doughy, too, with a surprisingly robust cookie crumb sweetness. Grapefruit and lemon citrus tones. Earthy herbal qualities. Light phenolic undertone. Citrusy, semi-dry finish with a meager, lingering spiciness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: I found it to be a nice, lively, low-ABV beer.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Tap at Brouwerij Lane. Poured an almost clear pale yellow. Nose is spicy, peppery. Light Belgian pale, yeasty , earthy and a bit peppery with a bitter finish. With some warming he Belgian yeast comes out. Nice.

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Draft at Maloney’s. Poured a slightly hazy gold/orange with a large fluffy bright white head. Aroma of wet bread and metal. Perfect carbonation on a medium body with a slight creamy feel. Flavor is like the aroma with wet bread and copper. Bleh, Big Little kicks this beers ass.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Draught at Carrboro Beverage Company. Thanks for the large sample! This is my kind of beer. A light, hoppy, belgian pale ale. I could drink this all day. Earthy, nice bitterness, good stuff.

PhillyCraft (2845) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2012
On tap at Monks. Poured a cloudy yellow golden color. Head was a medium white shade with some good rings of lacing after each sip. Aromas of apples, wheat grains, lemon saison notes, orange peel, and some kind of spice if you really dig your nose in. Taste was on the bland side for me, and it wasnt carb’d enough as well. I wish more of the hops came through in the flavor also. Alright beer, Thing 2 was much better

obguthr (3435) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Orange flesh and lemon zest aroma. Cloudy yellow, medium head, good lacing. Dry lemon zest flavor, but sweeter toward the end. Light bodied and well hopped. Pretty simple, but tasty. I would have never guessed Allagash made it as it doesn’t taste remotely like anything else they make.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Draft at Max’s. Hazy orange-yellow pour. Thin white head. Crisp cereal aroma. Light sweetness with nutty flavor. Lemon-herb notes. Minty with a dry bitter finish. Really easy to drink.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2012
hazy gold, frothy white head, rings of lace. Nose is dry wheat and white pepper, softly eggy with some heavy citrus. Flavor holds more egg and citrus early, toasted grains across mid before dropping out for singular citrus-bitter grain contrast in finish. Light and dry but the end tells the un-rounded tale.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Draft. Cloudy yellow color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of dusty lemons. Taste is similar with pink grapefruit.
