The beer pours an amber/brown color with a thin offwhite lace head. The aroma is awesome. It has a warm, yet extremely fruity scent that boasts of pale and crystal malts along with a Belgian yeast aroma. It smells like strawberries, but I think that is from the use of many malts and hops. It is very balanced. The taste is good. It has a wonderful warm malty flavor that goes down smooth and finishes a bit tart and citrousy. I love the complexity of this beer. The mouthfeel is good. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good drinking beer. It has great aroma and flavor; by far the best beer Allagash has come out with.

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a small goblet.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.
S- It could be the incorporation of the four different yeast strains but this smells like it might be tart/sour. Slight booze fume.
T- Nevermind. No sourness, just some awesomely smooth Belgian candi sugar plus some vanilla and caramel notes. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Butter, burnt sugar, not very bitter. Also a bit of dark fruit.
M- Slightly zesty. Medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Haven't had this in so long and it's really a crime that I don't purchase it more often.
Edit: No, it was not intentional that I gave this beer a score of 4.4 but yes, it is awesome.
