Gold pour, white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, yeast, banana, spices, and a hint of mango. Flavor is fruity sweet, with notes of yeast and banana and a bitter/spicy finish. e303 (287) - - SEP 12, 2015
Sweet Belgian candied fruits with a dry bitter pine hop finish. Good stuff. Might be a good bridge to get into IPAs.

White soapy head with unfiltered yellow/orange appearance. Sweet Belgian taste followed by hop bite and dry finish. Pretty light mouthfeel given the 7.5abv.

Nice to see this in 12 oz. bottles. Poured into a tulip. A hazy deep lemony yellow brew. Off-white head. Good carbonation. Herbal-citrus aromas. Flavor is a mix of pine, herbs, citrus and piney bitterness. Light honey malt backbone. Fruity yeast profile. Huge bitterness at the end. Not as good as I hope it would be. Overpriced in the full-size bottle format. markducommun (1116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2015
On tap at the brewery, very fresh. Clear yellow gold, minimal white head. Distinct honey aromas, pine resin, light tropical fruits, a bit of fresh pine zip. Light lingering bitterness, some sweetness. Clean, lightish body, long finish somewhere between earthy and bitter. Good.

750 ml bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. ben4321 (6506) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
App.: Hazy deep golden with a full off-white head.
Aroma: Holy hops, Batman!, dank/resinous/peppery, tropical fruits, citrus, so juicy and rich, Belgian esters, quite fruity, the hops take on an evergreen personality after that, wow.
Palate: Medium body, HUGE carbonation.
Flav.: The extreme carbonation interferes with the flavour, still has a HUGE hop presence with lots of pine/resinous/peppery character with some nice mango-like tropical fruitiness, Belgian esters, this is a journey; dry with good bitterness and a long, complex fruity/hoppy finish,
Allagash made a good Belgian-inspired beer? Woulda never guessed...haha.

Aroma: The nose of this one is lightly Belgian yeast, with some citrus hops/rind.
Appearance: It pours a clear gold, with a small white head, and drippy lace.
Flavor: The flavor is yeast, light spice, and bitter citrus rind flavors.
Palate: The body is medium, clean, soft carbonation, dry/spice finish.
I thought that this was a pretty tasty one. I’m glad I tried it for sure. Finds a good place near Belgian IPA.
Pours golden yellow-orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, ripe fruits, belgian yeast, sourdough bread, pine, and some light dankness. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty interesting and tasty belgian IPA.

This poured a red color with a white head. Aroma was of caramel, pine, and dark fruit. Flavor was piney, grapefruit caramel and toast. Solid
Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Aromas of earthy, piney, floral hops, spicy phenols, and stonefruit-like esters. Somewhat hazy yellow-gold, lasting white head. Fruity, spicy, some sweetness, nice bitterness. Very soft and creamy, light-medium bodied.
