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.

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.
