look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle poured into a Delirium Tremens tulip
A - This is my first Allagash beer and was quite excited to finally try something from them. Pours a very pale yellow, straw color and grows a 1.5 finger head. Head lasts for a few minutes then reduces to a pool of foam. Little lacing. Body is cloudy and can see a little carbonation rising from the bottom.
S - Nose is faint but can get some spice and peppery cloves, coriander, orange, and a tad of banana. Smells of a hybrid between a Witbier and a Belgian Pale and is quite crisp. Enticing.
T - Initial taste is spice. Get some hints of honey and orange and some lemon zest at the back end. Coriander follows and some citrus lingers afterward. No taste of alcohol. Overall very crisp and refreshing. Dry finish.
M - Mouthfeel is light-bodied and refreshing. Good carbonation and that combined with the dry, spicy finish mixes well to make it easy to drink.
D- Drinkability is high. The flavor sticks around and each sip is as good as the previous. Crisp, dry, vibrant flavors and ample carbonation help drive the senses and this was a great first start into the Allagash lineup.

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.
Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose
The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.
The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.
Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.
Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
