On-tap at the Brick Store.
Pours a dark amber color with a tan head that leaves decent lacing.
Smells of grainy caramel malts with good amounts of robust spices – clove with hints of brown sugar. Also present are hints of very ripe pears and lighter amounts of green apples.
Tastes similar to how it smells, though the malt influence is larger. Moderately dry caramel malts with just a hint of sweetness up front are joined by equally light amounts of clove and pear flavors. The spices fade out into a moderately bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with active carbonation.
Overall this was not a terribly enjoyable beer, I’m not really sure what Allagash intended to do but I think they missed the mark.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Hazy amber-orange with a finger of frothy tannish head. Fades fairly slowly.
S - Sweet grainy and bready malts, some biscuit, citrus peel, Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, other spices, bit of farmhouse funk.
T - Sweet grainy, biscuit, and bready malts, lemon and other citrus zest, Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, other spices, some farmhouse funk, a touch of tart green fruit.
M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Smooth with a estery, dry, and lightly sweet finish.
D - Great biere de garde. Really nice farmhouse character with great overall mouthfeel and body.

Got this in a BIF last fall, finally getting around to it. Into a large tulip.
A: Pours a nice ruddy brown with an enormous dense sand colored head that doesn't want to fade away. Slightly hazy. Excellent lacing. Really a nice looking beer.
S: Malty with a nice amount of spice and yeast esters. Really yeast forward.
T: Bready, caramel malts, and a much more subdued yeast profile than the nose leads on. Light bitterness finds its way into the back. I get some citrus/lemon from the hop profile as well. Interesting stuff.
M: Light and crisp, quite dry.
O: Pretty enjoyable, not the best of style but still a solid enjoyable beer.
