COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash Grand Cru is deep golden in color, and has a firm yet refined malty palate. Taste and aroma have suggestions of smoke and licorice, with subtle hints of fruit and spice. An excellent beer to enjoy during the cooler seasons.

Pours a nice copper color, with a big off-white head and great lacing. Aroma of malt, fruit, hops, cabernet, pine, nuts, and berries. Tastes malty, fruity, with some hops, fruit, berries, cabernet, and caramel at the finish. Very complex. Allagash has continued to impress the hell out of me. I’d love to drink one of these with a fresh lobster sandwich...perhaps next summer.

750 ml bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, caramel, dried fruit, yeast, mild spices, vanilla, oak, coriander, dry finish. Solid offering, disappointing that they pulled out of Ohio.

marcus (10761) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
Batch 14. This hazy orange ale poured with a fluffy off-white head, eliciting a malty aroma. There is a sweet fruity malt flavor with some herbal elements and a short bitter hop finish, making for a very pleasant brew.

phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by Keir’s drunk ass at the Side Project release- thanks again, Keir! 2006 vintage. Pours a semi-cloudy deep golden color with no head. Notes of caramel, dried fruits, sugar, cookies, biscuit, and some mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. Probably better when it isn’t 7 years old. I’ll try a newer vintage someday soon.

3.6
KyotoLefty (10731) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle about 2 years old. Oxidized aroma with honey and citrus. Cloudy orange color. Flavors of cereals, honey, lemon, slightly peppery finish. Spicy, with coriander, and peaches. Rich, thicik, andsmooth. Tripel-like, decent though not spectacular. Maybe a bit too much spice, and probably better fresher.

MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2009 Earthy yeast, piney hops and herbal spices (rosemary?) accompany orange peels and peppercorns...The soft froth makes this very drinkable...Of great Belgian character, this spicy concoction makes for a bubbly lunch...

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2009
330 mL into Orval trappist. Pours a bright, cloudy orange with a thin white head that thins out to almost nothing leaving modest lacing. Aromas of yeast, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, orange peel- very musty. Taste is dry and tart with a metallic tinge. Very herbal. Aftertaste is dry and metallic. Sort of a disappointment.

3.7
blipp (9794) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours unclear orange with an off white head. Fruity aroma, with apricot, yeast and caramel. Flavor is peach, apricot, caramel, and yeast. Very nice.
