On tap @ The Growler. Looks more or less flawless this. A glowing orange cloudy looking beer with a big lasting and lacing cartoon looking head. Smells kinda mildish. A little orange peel, traces of wheat and white sugar. Kinda mild I’d say. Not bad though. Tastes a lot better. And a lot more. It has a nice oily texture in the mouth and it’s just about average on the carbonation. Creamy almost in the mouth. Sweet citrussy. White sugar, some needles, a little oaky mouthdrying thing. Hints of faint old fruits and vanilla. Quite tasty and quite good. 19.06.2017

Allagash Sixteen Counties Ale (2016 - )
Purchased in Vermont, Easter 2017. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a creamy white cap and very good retention. Light sweet nose from the Belgian Ale yeast and oatmeal. Citrus notes and other fruity malts. This fruitiness continues in the flavours with some nice grass in the finish to give some dry bitterness. Mild spices and a soda water feel. A complex brew, but a little too rich to enjoy such a bit bottle.

Allagash / Maine Beer / Rising Tide Prince Tuesday
Cotteridge #3: 20th May 2017. Cheers Leighton for bringing this offering. Hazy golden pour, off-white head. Nose had a spicy citrus leaning, some yeastiness and a light Rye ester or two. Taste is more fruity than the aroma and has a sweetness to it, light malts, light yeastiness, light bitterness. Liked it.

Bottle - hazy light gold - about everything I was hoping it would be - subtle spiciness combines with peppery and herbal hops in both the aroma and flavor quite well - supple malt texture - dry and lightly savory malt profile - spicy finish of herbs, citrus, pepper, and perfume - tasty.

Allagash Tripel Reserve
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-21-17. “07/07/16,” presumably a bottled on date. Labeled as “Allagash Tripel Ale.” Pours an effervescent, medium to dark gold with a moderate amount of thin, short-lasting beige head. The shade and effervescence of the liquid is good, but the head is subpar in the initial pour. Final pour is hazier, darker, and duller, but the head is larger, creamier, more substantial, and longer lasting, and I bump the appearance to a 4. Pleasant, juicy, honeyed aroma. Scents of apple juice and Chardonnay. Buttery smell, not in a diacetyl way, but in an oaked white wine way. Quite sweet flavor with a dry finish. Honey and generic light-colored fruit juice. Melon and bitter orange peel. A touch of dust. Not sickly sweet but juicy-sweet in taste, but sweeter than I would prefer nonetheless. Hits the mark for a tripel, although it doesn’t seem to be particularly complex for the style, and it’s on the dull side. Medium to full body. A bit frothy and smooth but mostly forgettable (but not bad) palate effects. Easy to drink. Pleasant beer, well-made, doesn’t stray far from the Belgian model, but it does little for me.

Allagash Century Ale
Shared 12.7 oz., 2015 bottle, with my portion served to a fest sampler showing a hazed, light gold/straw color, with modest, white froth that reduced quickly to a persistent ring, and some spots of lacing. The nose was bretty funk, soft malt/wheat, and a citrusy tartness & tanginess. The taste was similar, light to medium bodied, with some spritz to the effervescence, and continued funk that partnered with an earthy bitterness. Refreshing, on point Saison+ that cellared well and stayed fairly bright.

Aroma: lightly leather, earthy and roasty. Appearance: golden amber Taste: Very light sweetness and slightly salty Body: medium body, creamy, average carbonation Im fairly new to specialty beer, but this one satisfies my preferences in alcoholic beverages across the board. I enjoy Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc wines; full-bodied bourbons; and stout and Belgian influenced beer. It’s like a perfectly blended mixture of all of these and is my current favorite.

Pretty nice as one could expect. Pours hazy golden with decent head. Sweet finish with some whiskey booze and lots of flowers like trying to make up for the fact that you showed up drunk at your anniversary with a bouquet. Some clove. Whiskey probably a little too potent here but other elements strong enough to shine through. Tap at Birch and Barley.

Bottle to tulip, the appearance was a semi-cloudy pale orange color with a fingers worth of white foamy head that fell off at a sly pace. Some stringy lace. The aroma had some fennel/caraway seed up front, somewhat like hay/grassy to herbal sweetness. Subtle citrus, touch of sweet wood with some biscuits. The flavor was herbal sweet with the caraway seed creating a touch of spice, but super low. Brett sour is low yet accomplishing a nice balance. Aftertaste was herbal and semi-sticky sweet and sour. Finish was somewhat sour, somewhat tart, but also somewhat woody. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Overall, its decent as a sour/wild ale. However, I think age could give this beer some valor.

Bottle from Chinabeergeek, dated 5/7/13, drunk 5/5/17.
Bright amber-cherry colored body shows good clarity and a beige head atop that slowly recedes to cover.
The nose is an easygoing mix of acetic acid and soft Brett-like cherry pie notes. Malts add a gentle sweetness in the form of vanilla and honey but the big fruity esters from the various bacteria and yeasts keeps it bright and lively as light oak is noted on the end with just a touch of alcohol. Everything has come together very nicely here and there are no rough edges. Even the acetic acid takes on a deep, funky, fruity character with no vinegar notes at all.
Soft and malty with oak adding additional structure to the texture while low but very tight carbonation helps concentrate and then disperse the acids and sugars to great success. Mild cherry pie-like character from the Brett with low breadiness and a touch of citrus keeps things bright while acetic acid is, just as in the nose, relaxed and only adds a robust fruitiness with little/no vinegar character. Light alcohol warmth on the end adds to the picture by contributing more dryness and rich layers of honey and vanilla from the base malts continually comfort the palate. Fantastically well-aged and harmonious beer that was a delight to drink every drop of. Quite marvelous indeed!
