Flavour is light caramel malt nicely blended with a delicate citrusy hoppy flavour. Light yeasty touch into the finish followed by a nice lingering hops finish.

Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of fruit - especially peaches.

Hazy amber beer. Dry frothy palate. Immediate vegetable spice that dominates the creamy malt. A bit like ginger but it’s not ginger! Frothy in the mouth, it finishes dry with some warmth. As so often with Allagash - interesting but not quite inspiring.
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of BrianK. Hazy golden with an off-white head. Sweetish herbal aroma. Quite full-bodied, sweetish herbal with an abundance of pale malts. Sticky - almost fat texture. Very subdued bitterness with a somewhat astringent, herbal finish. 190408

Cloudy golden-orange colour. The aroma is herbal, spicy (mint, chamomile, cinnamon) and toasty with breadcrusty malts and rye. Huge herbal character - must be the yarrow - with lots of chewy rye, full maltiness. Big and rounded with a peppery finish. Very unique, well-balanced brew with accents of both Belgium and gruit. Impressive effort, muddled only by a slighlty overt yeastiness. bhensonb (15965) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 9, 2013
750 c&c from bu11zeye. Thanks much for this! Pours orange gold with a transient wite head. Aroma of light stone fruit and grape must. Full bodied. Mild carb. Flavor is sort of tripel crossed with barley wine - with spice/must. Aged very well. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 750 mL bottle shared by TheBeerGod at the 2008 Richmond Summer Gathering in Williamsburg. Thanks Mike! Amber color with a quickly disappearing medium-sized head. Big earthy and herby aroma. Notes of caramel, citrus, cereal, bubblegum and alcohol. Taste is very herbal... lots of woodiness and spice. Medium body with some thin spots. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2007
