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.

Tasted at brewery, batch 19 (8 months old). Clear and dark golden with a creamy head. Aroma is lightly roasted malt and a bit of tang. Feels heavy, best to drink in a small glass. I can’t get all the flavors but there are a lot of them. Yay beer!

Pours a hazy amber with a rapidly dissipating beige head. Sweet candiy nose. Drier in the mouth than I expected. Hints of dark fruit and candy are complimented well by a nice bitterness. Long slightly sweet finish.

A solid effort! This brew trys to be alot of things. What they are, i do not know. What it does succeed in, is being very good. Not a suprise. Portland is one of the most under rated party towns on the map.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy, golden amber with a very small off-white head. The aroma is very fruity - berries and pear - with a hint of vanilla and spice. The sweet maltiness comes through the strongest in the flavor but it’s not at all too sweet. Very well balanced and easy to drink. I like it a lot.

Nice cloudy amber color with a full palate and mild smell. Very good flavorful beer with some hops and a sour after taste.

Nice head, good bracing dose of hops wioth a slightly aggressive maltiness. Robust, yet not heavy. The spiciness is mild and does not dominate. This is the only Belgian ale I’ve ever had that could qualify as a good session beer. A good introduction to the Belgian styles for someone new to this end of the beer world. All around a very good, worthy beer.

ChapelThrill (52) - California, USA - APR 25, 2009
Bottle - Lighter in color than expected... orangish golden color. Aromas of dried fruit, bread, and spices. Nice flavors of similar origin with an extra touch of yeast, and a slight sweet finish. Enjoyable belgian.

Bottle. Deep mahogany, with a spicy, yeasty nose. Flavors of coriander, fruit, with a slight peppery smokiness. An excellent beer.
