Allagash Little Brett
Tropical pineapple, slight funky earthy wet wool aroma and flavor. Light and refreshing but still has lots of flavor. Light palate without being watery. Balanced and the flavors work well together. Finishes with a barnyard earthy funk. Very little tart, virtually all funk, but it works well with the tropical hops. Nice beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Allagash Sixteen Counties Ale (2016)
Form the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Bottled 3/24/16. The pour is a cloudy amber-yellow with a lingering white head. Toasted bread on the nose along with lemon zest, fruitiness, grass, clove, and coriander. Medium to full body. Mildly sweet bready taste with the fruity characteristics of the nose juicing it up to a zesty yet dry finish. I wish I had tried 2014 and 2015.

Allagash Sixteen Counties Ale (2016)
Bottled 3/24/16 and drunk 5/12/16 and again 5/22/16.
Lovely copper appearance shows good clarity, as would be expected. Lighter golden and deeper amber tints are visible, with a big, off-white head atop showing strong retention.
Lush, estery nose provides all sorts of various fruits; apple, pear, strawberry and so forth. There’s a deep cereal/grain character that is both clean and wonderfully well-developed. Wheat bread, biscuit, very light raisin and notes of that nature, mix with the esters pretty harmoniously adding a more earthy character to the light fruits. Not hugely phenolic, but with herbal/peppery hops to that end, which are reserved but still aromatic, leading to an earthy, lightly herbal finish replete with hints of floral notes. No alcohol noted.
At first I don’t notice it, but as Chris points out, this is actually fairly bitter in flavor. Certainly not overly so, but it’s a good complement to all of the malty notes, which provide only light to moderate sweetness, being well-attenuated. Herbs, floral notes and more earthy/grainy malts on the end, with ample, tight carbonation and a medium-soft, malty-to-grainy texture overall with no alcohol or flaw. More citrus character emerging as it warms and breathes, but I don’t think it ever runs rampant and keeps the beer crisp and refreshing in the face of all of the malt/wheat/oat character.

Nose is light fecal notes, tarte cherry, funk, pissy straw, apple core, light lemon roulade. Taste comprises bitter cherry, funk, barnyard, light spice, wood must, bramble berry pips, damp hay, light acidic bite.

750 ml bottle, 2016 vintage. I purchased this at Prost, North Hampton. Color is a hazy orange, this only had light head around the snifter. Aroma is hazy honey, Belgian yeast, straw.

Honey / pale malt base with a huge spicy yeast character. The sweet honey malt is balanced by the black pepper / spice in the finish. House yeast is pretty noticeable. Medium body with nice crisp carbonation. Pretty nice.

From the tap at Portland, ME Holiday Inn. Pint glass. Light straw colored with an unfiltered haze. Minimal head. Aroma is mild but lemon comes through along with grain/cereal. Taste is also citrus with wheat and cereal serving as balance components. Refreshing and easy to drink. Falls in line with many other mainstream witbier options. Orange, coriander. Thin with no attempt to linger in the aftertaste. Pretty basic but a good low ABV effort.

On tap at MIT Science Bar as part of ECBT. Entire crew present. Pint glass. Attractive unfiltered appearance with a beautiful combination of orange and gold. Aroma is reminiscent of a strong farmhouse ale. Slightly sweet and funky. Taste is very solid and interesting. Makes you thirst for another one almost instantly. Familiar yet new. Nice Belgian yeast impact. Spices playing a role as well. Coriander, earthy notes. This feels like a really good Belgian IPA crossed with a lighter farmhouse ale. Definitely my favorite of the trip this far. I’ll travel through at least 16 counties to imbibe on this beer again.

I’m into lighter beers, as I can’t stand hops. This beer does it for me. It’s everything coors light, Miller light, and bud light are not IMO. It’s refreshing and doesn’t leave a heavy, lingering aftertaste. They got it right with this one.

Bottle share at Level 42, with thanks to Paul. As ’Allagash Little Sal’, bottled Feb 2014. Deep dark brick red, opaque, small pale pink head. Aroma is merlot, redcurrant, acetic, some wood. Body is smooth, tingly carbonation. Taste is tart and sour red fruits, rhubarb, some vinegar, light wood, touch vegetal. Pretty solid but just a touch too acidic and vinegary for me - warming my oesophagus just a touch too much! Good though.

Sampled at mile, pours clear gold with no head and not much lacing. Notes of banana, clove, coriander bubblegum and other yeasty and estery Belgian notes. Medium bodied. Way too spiced and boring for me. This would have been good with some more hops or a bright herb with some citrus behind it
