4.2/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Beer pours, well, golden. Light white head floating on top. Good carbonation...clear.

Aroma gives off hints of honey, hard candy, tart apple, wet wood and leaves, sage, tarragon, clove, and light cinnamon.

Flavor is of tart fruit and candied apple, backed by syrupy honey and candy sugar. Some spice in there--green peppercorn, tarragon (again), cinnamon, and some clove. There is also that wonderful, earthy underlying funky yeast, too.

This beer is really good. It has a slight alcohol burn on the back of the throat. Well, I should say alcohol warming, because it's not a bad thing. It actually sits quite well in this beer, and adds some complexity to the beer.

The flavor is a bit on the sweet side, but the yeast balances that out nicely and gives everything a well-rounded, sugary-funk.

Overall, this is a fine ale. I haven't had this one in years, and I'm really glad I picked up another six pack.

Maine

3.85/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a golden yellow color, fairly large fizzy head that fades at a quick pace but leaves a decent lasting cap afterwards, bubbles constantly rising from the bottom, no lacing on the glass.

Smell has a yeasty lemony aroma, touches of banana with a sweet malt backing.

Taste starts out with a strong Belgian candied flavor, lemon follows along with some coriander, carbonation is medium-high but closer to the high side, kind of explodes in your mouth and fills with foam, at first the alcohol is well hidden but with each sip it becomes more apparent.

Got this in a mixed pack, solid budget Tripel.
