"2013" - Our 2013 Anniversary beer is collaboration amongst friends, Allagash and infiniti fermentation & distillation. Given our focus on hoppy American ales and Allagash and infinitis focus on Belgian-inspired ales, we thought it only natural to blend the two styles. The result is what you might call a hoppy Belgo-American Pale Ale. 2013 is actually a blend of two separate fermentations, one, with our American ale yeast and one with Belgian yeast (Allagash house strain and a Trappist strain preferred by infiniti). The American version was dry hopped with Falconers Flight and the Belgian version with Saaz. Both were then blended together to taste. The result, a hoppy pale ale with notes of both citrus (American hops) and spice (Belgian yeast and continental hops). Vitals: Color Tangerine ABV 5.5% O.G. 1.050 Malt American 2-Row, Raw White Wheat, Flaked Oats, Caramel 40 Hops Falconers Flight, Saaz *This beer was only brewed once, in October of 2013, and will be available in bottles in most of our markets for a limited time, beginning 10/29/13. Please enjoy fresh.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color tangerine colored edges and a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention with large rings and streaks of soapy lacing covering the glass on the way down. Dank aroma thats dominated by uber fresh, juicy hops. Very floral and earthy with resinous oils and grassy pine countered by sweet citrus/tropical fruit and a pale malt backbone. The American hop and yeast dominate the nose and it smells more like a DIPA than anything else. The citrus/tropical fruit notes are prominent with lots of grapefruit, pineapple, papaya and orange peel. As it warms, the spicy esters and lighter fruit notes start to show. Decent malt presence underneath the strong hop profile with hints of biscuit, bread, graham cracker and toffee. Smells great! Medium body with soft carbonation and fresh earthy hops up front countered by spicy Belgian yeast, light fruit and a prominent pale malt backbone. The different flavors are better integrated than in the nose, resulting in a beer that tastes and feels more like a hoppy pale ale than a big DIPA. More complex than expected with lingering dry hop bitterness followed by tropical and citrus fruit sweetness before the yeast and pale malt flavors come in on he back end. Hints of grapefruit, pineapple and citrus peel cut through the bitterness and are complimented by spicy, breast yeast, biscuit malt, cracker, apple and pear flavor. Theres a lot going on here but the flavors play off of each other well and its very easy to drink. Doesnt live up to the intense aroma but it has plenty of hop flavor and Belgian character while still feeling like a pale ale. Another solid beer from Maine Beer Company.

500 ml bottle. Randomly popped up at a liquor store. Bottled 10/29/13. Pours a clear amber with rising carbonation and a lazy head of white foam. Nose is hopsgrassy, grapefruit, and pine mixed with some light malts. No real Belgian yeast notes in the nose. Taste is faded piney/fruity hops, biscuits, and bitter grass. Like drinking an old Torpedo or something. Drinkable still at almost a year old, but obviously this was best in 2013.

Flea (8) - Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2014 does not count
Pours a nice orange/amber with a creamy white head. Smells of citrus and hoppy nose. Taste of hoppy Belgium ale rings true! Very drinkable with a nice mouthfeel. Bought a couple if bottles at the brewery and I should have bought more!

This is a Belgian style beer that is really hop forward. I love a triple caramel and it is like that, but less fruity and more hoppy. Pours a Cloudy yellow and has a nice hopy bitter finish. Awesome beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours bright orange gold with a big white head that lingers and clings to the glass. Aroma has peach, citrus, grass. Flavor follows nose, backbone is caramel malts, hops are peachy, citrusy, finish is grass bitterness and a touch of spice. Not bad, but the flavor in the finish takes this down a notch.

500ml bottle from Wine Academy. Not impressed. Poured a hazy amber with a smaller to average sized white head. Aroma of older citrus, rotting oranges, bad uncooked dough. Flavor follows suit and this is just one disappointing beer from Maine Beer Co.

500 ml bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Pours hazy gold with a big foamy head that fades slowly and never completely goes away. Aromas are oranges, peaches, bread, and spicy Saaz hops. Taste is nice mix of spicy, grassy hops and citrus hops. Very light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Some bready and grainy malt comes through too. Pretty good and I bet it was even better when really fresh.
