Served from a 12-oz bottle (no date) into a hi-ball glass.
Appearance: Hazy and pale, with low carbonation and a towering white head. Settles fairly quickly and only leaves a little bit of lacing on the side of the glass. This may have been a result of the glass that I'm using so I may revise this.
Smell: Lemony citrus with plenty of peppery spiciness from the yeast and the coriander.
Taste: Flavorful, juicy lemon with an earthiness lent by the yeast and plenty of the spices you can smell. I really appreciate how the malt balances out the grassy, citrus bitterness in this beer, leaving a tang in the mouth rather than the sourness that some other wits leave. Carbonation and a little bit of alcohol adds a warming, tingly parting shot. Tanginess lingers in the mouth, or maybe it's just watering because I want another.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, and refreshing without being watery.
Overall: This is an excellent beer, and should give anyone who is thinking about shelling out the extra cash for an import a serious reason to pause. Drink (more) local: the Allagash brewers show themselves more than capable of making excellent Belgian style beers.
