Notes/Commercial Description:
We named this beer in honor of Myron Avery, a founder of the Appalachian Trail, or the A.T., which starts near Sierra Nevada’s North Carolina brewery and ends near Allagash’s home in Maine. Both breweries have a tremendous love of the outdoors, and Avery and the A.T. are great reminders of the wild spirit of exploration that connects us both.

In 1995, Rob Tod started Allagash Brewing Company and since then, Portland, ME, has been a place of reverence in the Belgian brewing pantheon. Allagash adds their Belgian flair to variety of beer styles and are one of the few American breweries to use a traditional coolship for true spontaneous fermentations leading to seriously complex beers native to their coastal home.

12 oz bottle from beer camp box poured into snifter

A- Kind of a classic golden/orange. Some lacing, but no real head
S- Mouth puckering aroma of classic belgium yeast. Bready, a bit of citrus/ floral
T- Bready upfront, finishing in a bit of orange peel, but fades quickly leaving that classic belgium yeastiness in the mouth. I also get a bit of the "sierra nevada" hop profile. This may just be in my mind.
M- Thin to medium

O- Kind of an average belgium ale

Joining forces with Allagash brewers, the fusion of Belgian-minded efforts converge. This time with a timeless and charming Belgian pale ale that doesn't polarize or contempt- just a refreshing taste and racing feel that makes this session way too quick.

Opening with a bright golden hue, the ale pretends to be champagne, even in its frothy column of foam. A lemon, apple and orange medley tantalizes the nose, along with a tickle of white pepper, faint coriander and cumin. Initial taste is dryly malted with short-lived sweetness and peps of light bread and whole grain.

Arrested sweetness quickly dissolves over the tongue while a zesty but playful acidity takes hold. Equipped with a bubbly feel, its sparkling white wine texture reads white grape, citrus fruit and a corkish taste that's reminiscent of straw and fresh-cut grass.

Its fast-fleeting finish scrubs the thirst from the palate as a texture and minerally taste of seltzer water allows "table beer" Belgianesque character to assume. Dry in finish, a slight tang and carbonic bite closes the taste with echoes of fruit and spice hovering above.

Packaged 6/3/14.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, Belgian yeast, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, spice, and Belgian yeast flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of nice earthy aromas and flavors.

In a tulip, this beer was a light golden color. There was a medium-sized white head with a little bit of lace.

Aroma primarily pine and spice. There was a little bit of citrus, as well as a little sweetness.

Spice up front in the taste. Coriander. Some pine. There was a bit of grapefruit that came in late. A hint of candy.

Light in body, nicely hopped. This turned out to be an excellent early morning beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy gold with a huge white meringue head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is musty fruit, some spice. bubblegum and a little piney hop.

The flavor is sweet doughy malts , coriander and a little fruit with some piney hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid Belgian pale. I like the hop / yeast combo.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Golden Straw coloring with decent white lacing

S: Obviously smells of Belgian yeast, not overwhelming

T: Big let down. Even while it tastes like a Belgian beer, the taste is very underwhelming and with a bitter aftertaste.

M: OK, nothing to write home about

O: I know a lot of people are hating on the Beer Camp stuff and I really think the 12 pack is a great idea, even if the beers aren't all rated 90+ but I do think this beer is very sub par. I have had better beers from brand new breweries so I am not sure how Sierra Nevada decided who made the cut to be in this. This was the worst beer I have had from the 12 pack so far, the others have been pretty good.
