Hazy golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is light grape with a bit of hay. Flavor is lightly fruity and very mildly tart. Effervescent and crisp, flavor is vaguely similar to a white wine but not as sweet.

Note that it is better to have wIth salty foods than with sweet/chocolate foods. You can taste the grapes as it has a sIght raisin oaked barrel taste. Not a hearted beer, rather heavy but easy enough to finish a 750ml alone in 2 hours!

"Nice mix of honey and white grape sweetness, and light funk (though more pronounced than Victor). A rare blend of refresher and contemplative sipper. Very nice."

Is there anything better than the Allagash reserves? Just opened a caged and corked 750ml bottle from 2011. Pours a gentle yellow with a thick consistent cloud. Strong ale taste that draws you into the whole bottle. Just another wonderful offering from the great brewers in Portland, Maine. Cheers!

Draft at Julian’s, Providence. Pours a clear straw color, decent amount of head. Aroma citrus/grapes, crisp Brett funk. Body fluffy yet boozy, slightly tart, lingering arch bitterness, maybe honeydew melon sweetness. Interesting enough but not particularly my thing.
