On tap at Great Lost Beer, fresh and down the street from these breweries. Big C-hop, tasty and lacey on a cloudy yellow body. Fuller mouthfeel. Carbonation is right there. Hoppy for an Allagash, that's probably the Rising Tide contribution. Very good taste wise.

Tap at Great lost Bear.

Nice fluffy head 1 finger fades slowly with nice lacing, mostly clear slight chill haze golden straw color.

Nose starts with a nice farmhouse like Belgian yeast light farmhouse breadiness, golden Belgian malts, hint of floral spiciness, light floral grassy light citrus fruity hop.

Taste nice Belgian yeast, little farmhouse rustic almost light esters, Belgian sweet malt flavors, hint spicy rye and bready yeast, little yeasty. Then hops, light floral and citrus, fruity, fairly decnt bitterness. Long floral grassy spicy hop finish.

Mouth is med to heavier bod, decent carb.

Overall pretty nice.

750 mL bottle poured into an Allagash chalice. No bottle date.

Appearance - Pours a golden yellow with an enormous white head. Eternal retention and spectacular lacing. Picture perfect.

Smell - Herbal hops and a nice fruit estery flavor from the yeast. Sweetness backs it up, but not a heavy malt sweetness.

Taste - Grassy hop flavor. I don't get citrus from the hops, but it's got a hefty sweet fruitiness from the Belgian aspects. Aggressive hop character that lends itself nicely. The finish is a nice sweetness that is balanced by a biting bitterness. Peppery, as some others have described it.

Mouthfeel - Hefty body, but still quite drinkable. Good carbonation. The bitterness is well integrated, but still a little strong.

Overall - Quite a nice beer. I'm seldom disappointed by Maine and Allagash. An impressive combination of their respective strengths.

On tap at Cask and Vine with Mr Barleywine.
I started and ended the night with this, great brew. Huge citrus and fruity hop aroma with bits of bread and spicy rye adorned with hints of pepper and clove. Flavor follows the aroma. Great brew, if only the bottles weren't so obscenely priced.

Poured a pale hazy brass hue with a three finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured vibrant esters, light sweetness and peppery and grassy hops.

The taste offered a full blown peppery hop with earthy esters and a soft malt. Notes of citrus detected as well.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a well crafted collaboration ale.

Enjoyed at the Great Lost Bear. Poured into a stemmed tulip.

A - Poured a crystal clear golden hue with a nice light one inch creamy white head that fades to leave sticky side lacing.

S - Aromas are mice with good hop characteristics light citrus, Belgian yeast esters very nice.

T - Taste is pretty nice. Bright Belgian yeast with solid hop bitter finish. Very floral and nice hoppy finish. Actually kinda unique.

M - Mouthfeel is good and clean, with a bit lower Carb than I'd like.

O - Overall this beer was enjoyable. Pretty nice mingling of Belgian yeast and hops. Glad I got to try some of JLindros's pour as he got the last one.

A-Pours a a dark copper. Body seems pretty clear. Thinner, off-white head that is whipped in its consistency. It leaves steady ladder rungs of lace.

S-Good intensity. Comes on pretty heartily with candied grapefruit hops and some spiciness in three essences of the word: rye spice, spicy hop and Belgian yeast spice.

T-Loaded with boozy, sweet grapefruit hops. Some eucalyptus. Estery from the Allagash yeast which delivers plenty of flavor nuances. Caramel and bread combo maltiness with a hearty rye flavor.

M-Medium bodied. Alcohol is set well. Medium carbonation. Lasting flavor.

O-A tasty triple collaboration brew. Hoppy Belgian-inspired beers rare usually very hit or kiss with me. 'Twas a hit.

Pours golden yellow color with huge head. Very hoppy, especially for Allagash. Lots of good citrus here with tangerine jumping out. Smooth and light, I could have a couple.

On-tap, served in a tulip

A hazy golden straw color with a firm two finger cap. Good retention and huge sip marks down the glass.

Interesting nose. Some spicy rye notes mingling with banana and clove from the Belgian yeast. Also get hints of grapefruit, candi sugar, lemon, and grassy hops.

Hoppy up front, with notes of grass, grapefruit, and lemon. Through the middle, notes of candi sugar, rye, banana, and clove before a rush of hop bitterness in the finish.

Medium body, smooth, with just a touch of prickly carbonation. The finish is a good dose of bitterness complemented nicely with dry rye and grass.

This is a nice little collaboration of Maine brewers. Strong hop character on top of a saison-like body. Tasty all around.
