From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):
LOOK: Pale, cloudy straw with a magnificent tight, white creamy head and sticky lacing
SMELL: Spicy, rye, floral hops, gummy phenols
TASTE: Creamy, fresh, pale malt sweetness, fruity hops, bready, rye, leaf, pepper, dry, yeasty, doughy
What happens when rye from Rising Tide, heavy-handed hops from Maine Beer Co. and a Belgian yeast strain from Allagash Brewing Co. meet? This. A neighborhood collaboration.Delicious aroma and flavor, but perhaps a bit too yeasty, especially at the finish. Regardless, a solid offering and concept, with proceeds going to Portland Trails, an urban land trust.
Serving type: bottle

A-Pours a a dark copper. Body seems pretty clear. Thinner, off-white head that is whipped in its consistency. It leaves steady ladder rungs of lace.
S-Good intensity. Comes on pretty heartily with candied grapefruit hops and some spiciness in three essences of the word: rye spice, spicy hop and Belgian yeast spice.
T-Loaded with boozy, sweet grapefruit hops. Some eucalyptus. Estery from the Allagash yeast which delivers plenty of flavor nuances. Caramel and bread combo maltiness with a hearty rye flavor.
M-Medium bodied. Alcohol is set well. Medium carbonation. Lasting flavor.
O-A tasty triple collaboration brew. Hoppy Belgian-inspired beers rare usually very hit or kiss with me. 'Twas a hit.
Serving type: on-tap
