Another great beer from Allagash. This beer has a crisp belgium citrus sweet ale kind of finish.

It pours a clear golden yellow with a moderate head, that leaves a light, but distinct lacing on the oversized snifter glasses, I use for this beer.

I can not place the claim of bananas, but, the other fruits are there, bowing at the feet of the alcohol in this brew. It is a stronger beer, but, the alcohol is not at all over powering.

Like my experience with other Allagash beers, this is a pleasant, tasty, flavorful brew that is well worth the slightly higher cost. It is a very nice treat for yourself and for your guests. You will not disappoint, nor be disappointed, while enjoying this beer.

12oz bottle poured into tulip glass

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with pure white bubbly head. Saturn like rings cling to glass.

Smells of wet hay malts with a funky floral richness and some sweet bubble gum Belgian yeast. Slight spiciness in the background.

Tastes of funk and wet straw with a touch of green flowers. Light bitter crosses the pallet briefly on the way to a rich creamy yet drying bread crust finish. Hints of banana and unripe fruit with light coriander and a slight peppery spice that linger a bit.

Feel a tad frothy with medium to full body. A touch of alcohol comes through a bit at the end that slightly flattens the nice frothy feel but does not overwhelm. It's nice to have a stash of these so you can clean your pallet with one after a long night of IPA tasting.

What a great tasting full body beer. I have tried so many from so many parts of the world and I must say this one is my favorite. I just hope it becomes more readily available so others can enjoy it but I have a great seller in the Charleston Metro Area.
Savor the taste and drink it responsibly because it packs a powerful punch for beer. But even with the high alcholol content it is lower than wine or spirits so you can have more than one. There is a fruit taste but it is not overpowering. I despise fruity beverages so if I am touting this one so high it is because it has just the right amount to give it a great taste but not overpower you. Note best served slightly below room temperature. Too much chill will limit the great flavors
Enjoy it!!!!
