12. oz bottle was poured into a snifter.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin later. It is s pale orange color with clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Slightly sweet and bready malts, tangerine, and spice.
Taste: Hops are a bit more noticeable in the taste. Tart lemon flavor and lingering bitterness like the style traditionally should be.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and tingly bitterness.
Overall: I scored this bottle from a friend when I was up in Maine a few weeks ago. Never seen it before and only sold through the brewery store from what I was told. Cool stuff.

Allagash House Beer pours a slightly hazy gold with a moderate sized, rocky white head on top. The foam fades slowly and leaves a sticky netted pattern of lace on the glass.
The aroma is spicy with citrus notes blended in. Orange and lemon citrus, pepper, clove, ripe fruit, and bread are all present.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth with mild carbonation. The flavor is more subtle than the aroma. Lemon citrus and light fruit (apple/pear) are present, but not as strong. It's bready with some light spice notes at the end. Finishes dry and mildly tart with a taste of Belgian yeast. Once gone the bread and yeast notes linger on the palate.
This is an easy drinking well balanced beer.Tasty and not overpowering with Belgian yeast character.
