on tap at Duckworths (NC)

Pour is golden, lightly hazy, with a moderate size off-white head that is exceptionally durable and leaves fine lacing.

Clear Belgian yeasty note in both tasting and the aroma. After a minute of adjustment to the initially unpleasant but limited Brett.

M: very smooth with ample soft carbonation.

O: American version of this Belgian style that exaggerates the Belgian features. I found this slightly challenging.

The beer pours a clear, rich golden yellow with a fluffy white head that doesn't lace. The nose is mildly peppercorny with a touch of yeast and honey sweetness. As the beer warms a bit there is a great Belgian yeast presence, a honey sweetness, and a lightly biting peppercorn in the taste. This beer is definitely a medium bodied, drinkable Belgian brew with subtle, yet distinct peppercorn presence. I like this beer and think it's a worthy consideration as an Allagash seasonal because it's a very drinkable Belgian pale that relies on the subtle, earthy, spiciness provided by the green/pink peppercorns.

On draft at Duckworth's, Charlotte, NC, 8.5 oz pour for $3.

Golden pils colored pour with a tight little head and oil-slick lacing. Nicely bittered by the hops, good bit of citrus in the nose and mouth. Loads of fresh lemon and bitter fruit-flesh, a little grassy in the finish. The mouthfeel is quite nice, bravo on the viscosity. Solid brew.
