A nice surprise. Good flavor - a fine beer for cold nights. coopec (20) - Portland, Connecticut, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Nice color when poured with a light almost creamy head. Spicy up-front but goes down nice and easy with a mild alcohol taste towards the end. USFCycling (14) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2007
pours an amber color with an off white head. Very nice aroma, very cirtus and fruit smell to it. nice subtle smoky mild bitter finish, the flavor is more of a sweet fruit. I really enjoyed this, as i do alot of the allagash beers. I actually passed out drunk half way through the beer and it was left open in my fridge for 2 days, and it actually tasted pretty good even then.

Fresh off my own keg! Poured a nice frothy thick head. The aroma was somewhat sweet but lacked any real strength.A hazy copper color looked inticing. Friuty taste with a smoooth aftertaste, not quite the norm as spices go, there is a hint but it is not prevelent. skweek (13) - College Park, Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Poured amber with a fair bit of head. Flavor has a nice bit of fruitiness and winter spices. Very good beer. Batch 18, aged about 2 1/2 years. Held up very well, I kinda wish I would have sat on this for another 6 months, would be excellent on a cold day.

This may be my favorite beer by Allagash. Very nice palate and flavor. I love the golden color. The only 2 points that scored low w/ me was the fact that the aroma is fairly flat and that as I drank it, the Belgain lace did not stick to the glass at all.

This bottle was from batch #10. It poured a deep, cloudy, golden/orange colour. It has a fruity aroma and tastes of a blend of fruits (apple) and spices. It seems to be quite sugary as well. A very plesant, sweet beer overall. jberneti (6) - USA - FEB 6, 2006 does not count
Delightfully spicy, sweet flavor warms the stomach on contact. Would liken it to a bit lesser-bodied Sierra Nevada Celebration. Try it while sitting by the fire after a fine day of snowshoeing. Sutton (6) - Salem, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2007 does not count
Very good. Allagash brings it again. If you like the other wheaty Allagash brews, this won’t disapoint. BongoJay (6) - Basking Ridge, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2009 does not count
