I'm going off memory for this one. I had it in a 750ml bottle with the cork present.

All I remember was having a reaction of: "Wow, this is an amazing brew!". The taste was fruity, malty, smooth, hints of german hefe (banana), crisp, effervescent, and far too delicious. This is one of those beers where you love the taste so much you end up drinking the beer quickly and you get punished for it. That 9% abv will do serious damage especially because you can't taste the 9% at all. You would swear it was 5%.

I'm making a conservative rating because I'm going to try this later down the road again and it may end up in my top three for favorite brews. That's how much I enjoyed it.

Cheers to Allagash!
