Big thanks to scott for tossing this one my way, been dying to try it. Enjoyed from an allagash glass. Look is honey orange with a thin creamy foamy head that hung around. The head moved as a unit and didnt leave any lacing when i.swirled the glass. Smell is soft grassiness with hints of clove and bubblegum. Definitely a belgian pale. Taste is much spicier than the nose suggests. Peppery with subtle fruit notes. Surprising bitterness on the finish. All in all very cool to try this beer, but not something i would chase down but a great unoffensive beer that could be enjoyed by beer novices and seasoned tickers alike. Great house beer.

Bottle: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light bread yeast with semi-sweet Belgian style malt. Taste is a refreshing mix between some light fruity notes with a semi-sweet Belgian style malt backbone with some bread yeast notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very refreshing with just enough complexity. I would love to have this on a regular basis.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Much thanks Toasterchef!

Out of the bottle she pours real nice, with a creamy off white head easily three fingers deep with a thick whipped presence. Retention manages well, good staying power if a little soapy but that meringue keeps glued. The body color is beautiful, it has numerous shades of orange amber and yellow gold, with super slow rising carbonation, and a strong middle column of fire in the middle. As it sits the head clumps like crazy all over the glass This is sexy looking, I am transfixed.

What an interesting nose. Sweet malts, a little bit of that classic Belgian sensing candy (sucrose?) but with a different sweet sense. Airy crisp malt and mild hop hiding, but a real creamy sensation whaffs over. It smells like sweet angel food cake, it's crazy, with a little bit of malt husk.

Palate reaches for a light bodied pale ale angle, but easily drinks like nothing going down. Crisp malt pleasanstry followed with a dense mild sweetness. Hop like finish hints just ever so slightly.. I can't pinpoint the profile, you just know it's there, that green leaf bitterness. Real complimenting flavors, that meld nicely, wonderfully balanced. I also love the fact the sweetness on this is so toned down too.

Overall, what a great super beer. An idea of a super session-able Belgian? Pattersbier? And one that seems all American to boot? I love it and I am normally NOT a fan of this brewery. Great friggin job!

Pours a golden color with a good sized white fluffy head, fades at a slow rate, surprisingly clear.

Smell has a good deal of lemon zest, hop presence is a bit stronger for Allagash but nice and unexpected, grassy and floral, sweet malt backing smooths things out.

Taste is crisp and refreshing, light fruit presence such as lemon, grassy hops follow and stick around for just long enough to impart a nice bitterness, finishes dry, not overly sweet or malty but a great balance throughout, very easy drinking.
