Allagash Coolship Resurgam
My Bottom Line:
Haystacks and citrus fruit meet minty hops and tart apples in this balanced and refined Wild Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy straw blond.
-Citrus character is reminiscent of freshly squeezed juice, pulp and all.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-Carbonation is prickly and helps smooth out the edges.
-This is complex and drinkable. Great job!

Bottle.

Allagash Curieux
Apparence : Dorée/jaune, légèrement trouble, beau col blanc aéré, bonne carbonatation et belle dentelle.
Nez : Fruité (poire, orange) et épicé (coriandre, poivre). Pas de traces de fut ici.
Goût : Malt fruité, levure belge épicée, vanille, légère acidité, notes plus chaleureuses et profondes lorsque la bière se réchauffe.
Sensation : Corps moyen, longueur moyenne, léger piquant sur la langue en finale.
Bref : Avoir su, j’aurais profité plus amplement de cette bière en la dégustant davantage à une température plus… tempérée. Chambrée, elle ne perd rien de ses fruits, de sa levure phénolique ou encore de son malt et gagne en vanille, en équilibre et en profondeur. Vraiment, le fut ici n’est pas une couverture pour une base mal exécutée; au contraire, cette dernière est encore ce qui domine dans le profil.

Allagash Sixteen Counties Ale (2016 - )
Yeast and lemon are tempered by the creaminess of the oats and the roastiness of the red wheat. Smooth overall and very easy drinking.

Not sure if I'm a fan of the bourbon BA alongside the more delicate tripel flavors - seems like a forced combo to me. Subtle bourbon smell. Taste starts out lemony and finishes with heavy oak, bourbon, and alcohol. Tripel-esque in body and that's about it.

Allagash White
From Jun 2008 I got this bottle from jwc215. Thanks Joe! It pours a coudy lemon yellow with a 2 finger head of foam. Good lacing and very good head retention. The smell is yeasty and has big notes of orange and spice, mainly coriander. A touch of banana as well. Great nose for the style. The taste is of lemon, coriander, a touch of clove, banana, pepper, ok. It fits the style to a T for me and I'm loving it. Medium bodied and well carbonated, it finishes with a lemon zest flavour. Very drinkable and seeing how it's only 5%abv, I wouldn't get into too much trouble drinking a few of these. Oh, and I just noticed a sweetness in my last sip....perhaps candy sugar? Wow. This is good. Bottom line: A *great* Witbier that would make one hell of a return to beer in the upcoming summer. I wish we had it in Casper!!

Allagash Astrid
Tasty wild saison, full of tart citrus and bright green apple with oak, vanilla, and herbal notes underneath. Starts as a full-on sour assault, acidic and potent and lightly sweet, with a mild toasted bread backbone and a rising vinous sweetness on the back end. Grows boozy in the finish, with mild dill and mustard mixing with the minor woodsy bitterness. Slight bit of funk pops up in the fade, but we're mostly given a shitload of sour. Bread and chardonnay on the nose, while the pour is a slightly hazed yellow gold with a persistent white cap and moderate lacing. Boozy feel could use a little smoothing out, but otherwise a good pint.

375 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a darker brownie with a khaki head of foam. Good head retention. The aroma has honey, molasses, toffee, caramel, strawberry. Sweet berry notes with moderate roast and a tangy acidity. Pretty mild sourness to it. Some tootsie roll in the finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Definitely an interesting beer.

Allagash Fluxus 2017
Bottle from Total Wine in Palo Alto, CA. Aroma is unripe peaches, strawberry (maybe), hay, slightly floral, wet fields. Taste is great carb but really quite bland with little fruit flavor...mild flowers, hay. Disappointing since the aroma is quite fruity. Falls flat despite being quite crisp.

Allagash White
I rate Allagash White on a sliding scale comparatively to Marten's Witte. Marten's Witte is my high water mark when it comes to belgian whites. It's the best i've ever tasted. Although, I don't know if it's the brewing process or not i.e. ABV, but I taste candy notes on the head and distilled birch bark thrown in on the aftertaste. Allagash white is a domestic offering that needs to step it up to European standards. This american white needs to more closely match a witte from europe, i.e. more candy notes and it will hit the nail on the head. All together it is an 8 where Marten's witte is a 10. In an country where it is ever so hard to obtain european imports Allagash white should adjust it's offering to brew a true european witte domestically without having to import anything.

Allagash Uncommon Crow
Apparence : Brune foncée, beau col blanc cassé, carbonatation moyenne et asse rapide, bonne rétention.
Nez : Mûres, vineuse, fruitée, bois (!?)
Goût : Mûres, brett, lactique en finale.
Sensation : Tout de même dense et onctueuse, effervescence moyenne, comme la longueur.
Bref : Comme les autres Allagash, aucun défaut présent et un équilibre qui ne se dément pas. La mûre est présente, bien goûteuse, tout comme les bretts les ayant fermentées. Par la plus ‘’complexe’’, mais tout de même intéressante.

Tap. Mostly clear light straw gold. Sweet white grapes and some light grain in the aroma. More of a Belgian pale with some yeasty bread and hay in the flavor, though the white grape notes remain. Lighter soft body.

Allagash Brett IPA
I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a hazy orange with a white head and lacing. The aroma is orange, mango, and hops. The taste is the same with some other citrus flavors coming through. It tastes very juicy and fresh. There's a great balanceto it. It's very refreshing and fresh. This is very good.

Bottle from the Davis Co-Op. Pours hazy gold with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is Brett and Tropics. Very nice. Med body. Flavor is Brett, citrus, tropicals. Quite dry. Moderately bitter, but Brett makes up for that. Going excellently with white cheese.

Allagash Lieven
Another wonderful creation from Allagash with loads of flavors while remaning well balanced all along. The barrel features are dominant, but it's perfectly integrated. It hits all the right buttons for a Flanders Red and many Belgians breweries could take notes here. Lovely.

Bouteille (375 ml) à la maison. Merci à Mathieu pour cette bouteille! Couleur acajou, apparence claire avec une tête blanc cassé de moyenne taille qui s'estompe lentement en laissant une belle dentelle. Au nez, c'est joliment boisé avec des fruits rouges, une présence légèrement caramélisée vraiment bien dosée, des notes de vinaigre balsamique, de la vanille, des noix et quelques effluves légèrement épicées. Au goût, l'acidité est modérée et la barrique est en vedette sans que ce soit exagéré. Corps moyen. Carbonatation moyenne. Texture boisée et un peu vineuse. Finale boisée avec des fruits rouge, une légère acidité et une touche de noisette qui persiste en bouche. Un autre petit bijou de la part d'Allagash, qui ferait des jaloux chez les brasseries de Flandres. Il y a une tonne de saveurs, mais le tout demeure harmonieux du début à la fin et la buvabilité est impressionnante pour un produit dont une partie a passé 4 ans en barriques.

Finally getting a rating submitted for this classic witbier from Allagash - from a bottle-conditioned bottle, this pours a perfect fresh and foamy appearance, solid creamy half-inch of foam that did not dissipate at all thanks to persistent lacing. Hazy but translucent pale yellow appearance, Soft aroma of wheaty grain and some mild clove and other Belgian spices. Likewise soft and light-bodied on the palate, nice natural carbonation with a subtly bitter floral hop aftertaste. Flavor is a true-to-style unsweet wheat and pale malt with hints of yeast and herbal spices. Clean-finishing, easy-drinking, lives up to its reputation.

Very pleasant Belgian wheat beer. It was definitely crisp, but was also a bit more malty than I was expecting. Also, with as cloudy as it was with yeast and other sediment, I expected it to be a little bitter or sour, but it wasn't at all. We had this with a bowl of crab chowder in a cozy cafe and thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely have this one again.

Allagash Cuvée d'Industrial (- 2016)
Lovely.
Sitting back, I now see how the boiled cabbage, acid malt, red wheat, sunflower seeds, gueuze dregs, aged hops, and dried lavender had taken over my obsessions. Everything is in its right place.
Finishes supremely sourdoughy with a hint of barnyard funk, mint, apricot fruit leather, and oak leaves.

2015, a real winning year for this particular Allagash sour.

Bright expressions of rose water, champagne raspberries, candied sugar and bay laurels made the rounds willingly. A zesty tart-sweet fruit beer that kept giving me ChapStik punches imbibing during the mid-palate. Not as sweet as I was led to believe.
Raspberries stems a noticeable characteristic minutes after gulping. Likeable.

375 ml bottle, spilt 3 was, thanks to Heather_B! Aroma is just a fruit medley; cherry, blueberry, lacto, more bugs. The flavor has a ton of fruit with the mild tartness in the finish. Pucker is here in the form of tart cherry pie filling. A pleasent amount of pucker, nicely balanced with the fruit. Really like it!

37.5CL from HB. HUGE cork pop on this one. maroon red. no head. Smells like cherry juice with just a hint of raspberry. very juicy with tartness of fresh fruits. this is fantastic. It's borderline too sour and tannic but only slightly. it's incredibly well balanced. Lingering cherry juice. Very tasty!

Allagash Brett IPA
Super hazy golden coloured body with a very thin pure white head, not more than a centimetre tall. Aroma of flowers, funk, grass, coriander seed, wheat and a bunch of wild brett notes - no sourness at all though. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive dry qualities at first with a lot of coriander seed freshness and a touch of citrus, but the dryness from hay and grass along with some perfumey hop notes make this nice and flavourful. Aftertaste shows a nice dry bite with a heavy balance on the yeast funkiness and a larger dose of coriander seed and wheat than before, but in a good way. Overall, a nice and dry beer that definitely shows more of a Saison or Biere de Garde more than anything, especially an IPA, but a tiny bit as a Wild Ale as well, so this is nice and complex, but is far from an amazing beer or one that should be sampled at all costs. Nice to try, and as one of the super early adopters of Allagash products, this is a good offering for sure, but please don't go crazy trying to acquire this one - just try something similar from any local (to you) brewery. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Fairfax, Virginia on 10-September-2017 for US$4,99 (I wouldn't pay that again) with a 'bottled on' date of 06-July-2017 at 12h35, sampled at home in Washington on 09-November-2017 a week after my first son was born!

Had a chance to try this interesting beer. Pours was light amber, without much head. Aroma was Belgian yeast, hops and slight fruitiness. Taste was smooth, with dried fruit and sweet toffee coming through. Aftertaste was all Belgian yeast. They call this a table beer, and that's right, if you are planning to sit at a table all day and enjoy beer.

If you are looking for a sessionable Belgian wheat, it's hard to ever go wrong with this one. This is a beer to go out on a canoe with a fishing pole and just to enjoy the day. A cant lose beer.
