On tap at my local, served in a goblet. Initially served cold, but I allowed the beer to warm up over the course of a few games of pool.
Appearance: Hazy golden color, more than 2 fingers of billowy white head when initially poured, ran off to about a half to quarter inch sitting on the top. Lacing left on the glass.
Smell: Mostly the belgian yeast, with some citrus zest and a bit of herbal bitterness. I was expecting this to open up a bit as the beer warmed, but it never seemed to, and the yeast definitely carried the aroma.
Taste: Crisp and citrusy without being bitter, very little hop taste. Refreshing and delicious, with a little bit of booze at the end.
Mouthfeel: Full and not too carbonated, avoids feeling syrupy or too light.
Overall: I would drink this instead of paying the import fees for an actual Belgian ale; a really solid offering from Allagash. Will definitely buy again, and will probably adjust the review as I go.
Serving type: on-tap

My wife and I both thought there was a "bad beer" smell (Not skunked, but like a lower end beer). We also both experienced an unpleasant, especially bitter aftertaste that lingered after a smooth beginning. It is possible that we got a bad batch, so we will definitely try again. However, if this is the product in all its glory, the Dubbel is much better.

A: Solid amber color with a decent head when poured from a bottle.
S: hints of fruit with spices.
T: Delicious. Solid beer all around. Have already had the White, Double, and Double Reserve. This is quite good with a light texture and great taste.
M: sufficiently carbonated and light on the tongue, hints of spices and fruits. Delicious. Have already compared with the White, Dubel, Dubel Reserve, and Tripel today.
O: Solid beer. Would be happy to drink in just about any situation. Pretty fantastic.
