Amber colour with a huge white head. Lovely aroma of coriander, orange peel and little sourness too. Not as good as it smeel. Flavour of corinder, spices and little maltness. hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Dark Amber pour, large foamy off-white head that lasts. Spice aroma. Taste is a bit chalky, with a hint of spice. Not much in the finish. Enjoyable, but not outstanding. DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - AUG 26, 2008
(Bottle). Spicy fruit aroma. Hazy orange color with thin head. Flavor is fruity with spice and sweetness. Rather soda pop-ish, and not too impressive. Compared to something like Rochefort 8, this Allagash lacks complexity and character. JFGrind (2047) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2002
Darker golden color and smoothier taste than I expected. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2003
This was disappointing. Pours almost a rusty brown. The bottle I had was NOT "deep golden". The head was light brown to off-white in color and was generous. The initial smell was bitter and reeked of bitter hops and overdone spice. The taste was soapy and a little metallic but it could have been from the hops. Finished also with a bitter kick. Not horrible but nothing worth seeking out. Stick with the Allagash Triple.

This was a very nice, fruity ale that went wonderfully with my dinner of chicken and sesame-peanut noodles. Yum. Amber with a nice subdued fruity/spicy/yeasty aroma and flavor- it was very, how shall I say (I hate to use the phrase) "drinkable". Anyway, good and recommended, though not exactly exciting.

This beer was similar to a Belgian golden ale, except much more of a malty flavor. It was hearty and filling with a nice mouthfeel. Big head when poured. JBPortland (1543) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2015
750ml bottle batch 1! Pours murky red brown with tiny head. Nose has a bit of weird vegetal thing at first but also some dark fruit spice and caramel. Taste has some caramel, raisin, dark fruit and spice, a bit over the hill, some herbal weirdness. Mouthfeel falls a bit lifeless. Finishes semi sweet with a continuation of the palate. Would love to try this fresh as I’m sure it would rate higher. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2002
Leather colored; Head had meduim retention; Raisin and plum in the nose. Slightly astringent. Medicinal, but not too bad. Spices are evident, but hard to pinpoint. joergen (28164) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006
