Draft at Monks. Poured a hazy honey gold with a thick pillowy head. Champagne. Juicy grapes. Apricot. Cumquot. Fresh oak. Just a touch sour. Fizzy on the tongue. Medium light body. Crisp. Delightful.

Light colored, aromatic belgian that reminds me a lot of a saison/farmhouse ale, then with some grape at the end of the palate. It’s straw colored, funky, yeasty, with a lot of grass to it. Grape is there without it really getting sweet. Pretty refreshing considering the abv. I enjoyed it a lot.

The Allagash folksare looking over my shoulder as I write this, si I have to be careful. Fortunayltely tje beer is really good, so I can be truthful. Draft. Cloudy golden color, thick white head with great retention and solid lacing. Aroma of floerws, perfume, dusty hay. Taste is slightly sour lemon bread, straw, light spice. Very nice.

2009 bottle. Grape jelly, honey, very thick sweet flavor. Pale wheat, some funk. Strange but quite good, almost like a cider. Yummy honey.

2009 vintage. Where this beer impresses me the most os the complexity in the palate. I would not say that it is full bodied, but has a length that lingers in the mouth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Golden-orange body. Minimal head. No lacing to speak of.
S: Bam. Chardonnay hits you right of the bat. Its not overpowering though. You could still get some yeast, pepper, clove and banana notes.
T: More of the same. I think the Chardonnay grapes accentuate the flavor even more than in the nose. Banana and yeast carry the day as malt takes a back seat.
M: Smooth. Refreshing. Slightly acidic. Clean finish.
O: More of a novelty than anything else. A nice beer but one that maxes out toward the end of the glass.
