COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash had the honor of hosting De Struise Brouwers Brewmaster Urbain Coutteau and his co-workers Carlo Grootaert, Phil Driessens and Peter Bruin along with the "Homebrew Chef" Sean Paxton of homebrewchef.com on August 29. The Brewers with our Brewmaster, Jason Perkins collaborated on a Belgium Blonde called Fedeltá which means Fidelity in Italian. De Struise had previously brewed a version of this beer at their farm brewery in Belgium. After collaborating strategically over e-mail, phone and in person on brew day, the five brewers were able to put all their hard work into a great brew. Fedeltá, 8.2% Blonde was brewed using a selection of imported Pilsner Malt, Domestic Pale Malt as well as 15% Wheat Malt. American Cascade and Amarillo Hops were also selected resulting in 35 IBU. Also added in the boil was Cane Sugar and Honey. Fedeltá was fermented with our house Belgian-style strain, producing a subtle ester profile. The result is a smooth beer with subtle flavors of spice, honey, and vanilla as well as citrus hop flower notes. Fedeltá will be available in limited markets, draft only in the fall.

One of my favorites from Allagash. Had it on tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a nice, hazy gold with a medium head. Nose of sweet malts and some wild yeast. Flavor was very sweet, with strong notes of honey and yeast. Smooth on the finish with a pleasant warming sensation from the ABV. Really good.

Koelschtrinker (21171) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Hopfiger, etwas hefiger Antrunk mit säuerlicher, nicht ganz passender Hintergrundnote. Schnell ist der hopfige Part verschwunden und weicht einem hellmalzigen und getreidigem Grundton, der eine typisch belgische Würzigkeit aufweist, etwas kräuterartig, hier aber wenig ausgeprägt. Im Abgang noch etwas milder, dennoch angenehm, wäre das starke CO2 nicht. Hier noch wenig hopfig. 8/9/8/8/9/9

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2009
Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid deep canary with off-white fluffy head. Nose is spicy florals, yeast, citrus, funk, and hops. Tastes citric, hoppy, with rock sugary malt, funk, florals, and yeast spice. Nice complxity and balance in this, although thetipping for balance in a beer that throws this much at you is definitely subject to debate. Well done, as with all Rob Tod’d beers.

MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Bountiful spicy, herbal hops expand into citrusy fruitiness within the doughy yeast and portly pale cereals of this buoyant Belgian-style Strong Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy golden.
-Tropical fruitiness pervades the flavor profile as well.
-Mouthfeel and flavor profile are very authentic, which is to be expected of any Allagash brew.
-The spicy hop bitterness is long and matches perfectly with the doughy yeast.
-Although some alcohol is perceived, this remains very drinkable for its strength.
-Bubblegum phenols are found in the nose.

On tap at Ebenezer’s.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale blonde/straw colour. Aroma is lightly sweet with a floral Belgian malt base. Lots of sweet bubble gum esters, a light citrusy fruitiness and a touch of tropical character as well. Soft and balanced brew with a very lean, stripped down body. A bit of white pepper and spice over a soft apricoty body. Lightly zesty with a soft orange citrus as well. It’s very good, but I don’t think it is all that distinctive.

Tap @ Capones. Golden pour. Aroma was very nice, flavor was great however light enough to be able to drink this all day but abv would get you drunk. Nice beer.
