look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Big fluffy fizzy head of 2 fingers fades at a med pace with big bubbles and spotty lacing, hazy banana wheat colored.

Nose nice fluffy Belgian blond, blond malts, plenty of wheat, light banana and wit like spices, light fruity esters, faint hint if peppercorns, light juicy citrus.

Taste starts with more Belgian flavors, a big Belgian blond with sweet malts, little toasty, and some light candy sugar, quite sweet. Then spices, wit spices with like clove and coriander, as well as some light peppercorns. Wheat flavors are there, with light banana and plenty if fruity esters, there is also a light earthy spicy bitter hop character, and a touch of warming and slightly phenolic booze. Finish is semi sticky sweet, more candy blond malts with bitter earthy hops, light spicy peppercorns, and wit spices and fruits lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, little syrupy, nice carb, light warming booze.

Overall not bad... a bit boozy and overall strong for what I expected. But otherwise interesting. Peppercorns could have been a bit stronger.

on tap at Duckworths (NC)

Pour is golden, lightly hazy, with a moderate size off-white head that is exceptionally durable and leaves fine lacing.

Clear Belgian yeasty note in both tasting and the aroma. After a minute of adjustment to the initially unpleasant but limited Brett.

M: very smooth with ample soft carbonation.

O: American version of this Belgian style that exaggerates the Belgian features. I found this slightly challenging.

The beer pours a clear, rich golden yellow with a fluffy white head that doesn't lace. The nose is mildly peppercorny with a touch of yeast and honey sweetness. As the beer warms a bit there is a great Belgian yeast presence, a honey sweetness, and a lightly biting peppercorn in the taste. This beer is definitely a medium bodied, drinkable Belgian brew with subtle, yet distinct peppercorn presence. I like this beer and think it's a worthy consideration as an Allagash seasonal because it's a very drinkable Belgian pale that relies on the subtle, earthy, spiciness provided by the green/pink peppercorns.
