This offering from Allagash pours a dark gold with a reddish tint that leaves a thin spotchy head that is quickly remedied with a swirl in my belgian goblet glass. The nose is horse blanket, must, grape, a hint of alcohal, dark fruits, plums, nectarine, figs, a very complex nose. TheCrowsNest (90) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - JAN 17, 2013
The taste is fantastic, starts syrupy on the palate with honey, sweet prune and figs, followed by a hint of hop bittterness that helps put this malty masterpiece in check. The finish is warming alcohal, grass, some wheat earthiness abound. This is a fantastic Belgian Strong worth every penny.
Hazy gold with a thin white head. Aromas of apricot skin and Sauvignon Blanc must. Bright stone fruit with slight tanins. Finishes nice and dry.
Delicious, it's got a hint of grapes but the light characteristics of a Belgian pale.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a vibrant glowing peach-golden color with a large soapy-foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet golden fruits, wood, must and bubblegum. The flavor was very tangy with bread dough,m ust, wood, bubblegum, strong golden fruits and sugar. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Excellent. Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle at the Funky 7, Brooklyn. Pours a cloudy, orange gold with a medium, white head. Big nose of yeast, banana, Belgian candi. Medium sweet flavor, some signs of age but I like ’em, citrus, spice, yeast. Medium to full in body with fine to average carbonation. Light warming finish, notes of white grapes, yeast, spice, fruits. Delicious beer. Has held up very well and this was just a joy to drink. da845 (139) - new york, New York, USA - APR 24, 2006
This beer is amazing. One of my favorate. very strong, very fruity. I would let it age a little bit and try it then.

Draft. Pours golden with a big foamy head. Aroma is of orange oil, cherry, grape, yeasty, slightly earthy. Sort of smells like a Manhattan! Flavor is rather sweet, lots more of the orange, vinous. Very well masked alcohol. Delicious -- I’d drink it again. And again. ejh8 (118) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Is there anything better than the Allagash reserves? Just opened a caged and corked 750ml bottle from 2011. Pours a gentle yellow with a thick consistent cloud. Strong ale taste that draws you into the whole bottle. Just another wonderful offering from the great brewers in Portland, Maine. Cheers!
