4/5 rDev +2%
On tap at Busy Bee in Raleigh
A - copperish yellow; no head
S - winy, buttery
T - winy, buttery, a bit bitter, white grapes
M - viscous, smooth, warm, little carbonation
This definitely leans more towards the wine side but is a solid offering nonetheless. If you're a white wine fan this is for you.

Pours a hazed yello straw, light bubbly head, little spots of retention. Scent leads with a sweet and tart fruit component, biscuity malt, some herbal and earthy qualities. Taste tones down the fruit a bit and focuses it more on the grape notes, decent grain profile, some leafy and herbal notes. Medium bodied, lightly bubbly. Slightly better than the Victor as it tones some bold flavors down and blends them well.

750ml bottle served in a snifter glass.
pours a mostly translucent (there is a touch of haze) golden yellow, yields a solid finger-plus creamy white/off-white head; retention is decent, lacing is good. overall a solid presentation.
nose offers a mishmash of fruity notes: grape, lemon, apple, maybe peach... spice... vinous with a touch of oak. good aroma. taste follows nicely. again, 'vinous' is the operative word with this one; i think it works well. more spice and fruity notes... a bit of hops in the finish. alcohol presence is virtually non-existent. very enjoyable.
medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. drinks easily at the outset but the grapes tend to wear on you after a while.

On tap for Allagash night at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Pours a hazy yellow with an off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain and some light jelly/jam fruity aromas. Taste is the same with some herbal flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

Enjoyed at a tasting at Julio's. Reviewed from notes.
A - Poured a crystal clear golden hue with a nice slightly rocky head that faded quickly and dissappointingly.
S - Smell i snice. Fair amount of vinous qualities on this with some light belgian yeast notes.
T - Taste is very similar to the nose. More of those belgian yeast notes, some nice malt sweetness, and the dry grapey qualities of the wine.
M - Mouthfeel is nice. Crisp, sharp, and try thanks to the chardonnay.
O - Overall, this is a good beer from Allagash just not worth anywhere near the $19.99 price tag for it in MA.
