Bottle share thanks to Beechner224. Nose is Bretty but not overpowering. Color is slightly dark yellow. White head. Nice pineapple and tropical fruit note. Quenching and not overpowering and obnoxious. Very delish. bellco33 (833) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap at the Black Back: Pours cloudy straw with a thin white head. Aroma of tart, barnyard funk, and a little breast. Taste is confusing but great. Slightly tart, bitter, wheat, funk, and lemony. Light to medium body, nice carbonation and a smooth finish. Nice beer! raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Starts out with an incredibly complex nose (a little chalky but deep). Looks of a fine frothy Belgian-white brew. Flavors are complex but light between spicy and floral. Palate is smooth yet complimentary to the subtle spice notes. I would almost call this a wit beer matured into a Belgian. Really nice for those who enjoy exploring subtle flavors. sitzds (318) - - DEC 14, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 On tap at beachwood Seal Beach poured into a tulip. Golden yellow haze with tall white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is funky, pear, wine, honey, and some spice. Flavor was tart pear/cherry, grassy and earthy bitterness, a touch of grain sweetness. Light bodied, silky texture, med-high prickly carbonation, dry finish.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Allagash chalice. Pours a translucent gold with a large froth of white foam Good retention. The aroma has notes of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango I get some drier funky notes. The taste is dry, grassy, mildly bitter. I get a bit of bread in the middle to end of the drink. Medium carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Very refreshing.

Overall, a good belgian brett beer but don’t expect a Brett blow out. viyh (73) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Light, subtle aromatics of spice, citrus orange, and a slight sour undertone. Very complex and tasty, no sweetness. I highly recommend. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 24, 2013
2012 vintage. Pours a medium golden color with three fingers of thick white foam. the nose is bright with barnyard brett, rustic grain, spicy yeast esters and a touch of tropical fruit. The palate follows with great balance... almost too much balance as i want something to really take charge and say "whats up!" Great converstaion between traditional saison sensibilities and a wild brett fermented beer. Spicy tropical notes ride along with a rustic grainy fieldgrass notes. Quenching refreshing finish. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On tap at Victory Bar and Grill.crossovert (13457) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Appearance: Clear amber body with a thin white head, settling into a thick ring with a light coating.
Aroma: Rather light aroma, but complex. Floral, sweet orange, rustic earthiness, with hints of leather and play-doh. This smells very nice.
Taste: Refreshing! Mild malts with hints of sweet orange and light leather on the finish. This is balanced nicely.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, highly carbonated.
Overall: Good-great beer, but like most Allagash this has poor price to quality ratio. This is a beer worth drinking though.
Golden ale tastes like brie and butter like a non onion obatzer with some funk. Weird.
