Had at one of Faustgeist's epic tastings.
A. Clear, amber-orange. Fine carbonation lends a small head to the beer.
S. Metallic, tinny hops, tart under ripe apples, estery in general. Apricots. Musty yeast, sweet, grassy, faint alcohol.
T. Sweet esters, fruity, hint of tartness, apples and grain, keep thinking this should be more dry. Light caramel malt and wet, musty, earthy hops shine through. Interesting, but not a great blend of tastes. Yeast character a bit too strong here.
M. Light, medium carbonation, finishes semi-dry and sweet with mild alcohol warmth.
D. Pretty good for 8.5%, it's smooth enough and intriguing, but ultimately I didn't feel like this was one of Allagash's best efforts. At ~$15 bucks a bottle you can do better.
