Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a goblet.
A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheer sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves clots behind.
S- Fruity yeast aroma with notes of pear, raspberry and apple.
T- Taste isn't quite as exciting as there's more of a wheat presence to go along with the yeast. Some Bready notes and a pronounced sweetness. Alcohol is quite well hidden.
M- Tangy and a bit prickly. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.
O- Been wanting to try this for a long time and it was worth the wait. A great, fruity Belgian that's actually a bit different from Allagash's usual MO.

A - poured into a tulip glass at room temperature. Big bubbly white foamy head with a very bright bronze to copper color.
S - distinct Allagash yeast smell the grapes come through slightly as a lighter note. Maybe some acetyl like scents sneaking through.
T - starts off pungent and bitter mellowing into a smooth, almost red wine finish. This however gives way almost immediately to a lingering metallic bite.
M - very light bodied and nicely carbonated. For a 9% beer this facet makes this one dangerously sessionable.
O - love Allagash but I've experienced every once in a while a metallic finish in their bombers. That being said this one has something to offer for both the experienced enthusiast and not so much. I think its most impressive quality is its lightness when regarding its abv.
