12oz bottle in a nonic.

Pours a bright golden sunshine color with a fat white head that leaves lots of lacing and never thins past a thick film. It's bright, clear, and a touch cloudy all at once. Gentle small bubble carb.

A very pleasant nose of yeast, light hops like lemon and grass. A mild touch of funk.

Toasted malt, active yeast, spice, and lemon. There's a slight mineral or medicinal quality that comes from tart apple flavor.

Medium body, smooth and easy drinking. Gentle with no yeast harshness. Clean flavorful finish.

Less is more: less funk, less alcohol, less fruits; all add to more drinkability and enjoyment.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Beautiful lacing, stunning clarity show a pale golden yellow hue. Aroma is of mild stone fruit and chalky yeast. Dry palate with a nutty yeast tone throughout, clean graininess meets peppery medicinal phenols. Crisp and extremely drinkable. Hands down, one of the best beers Allagash produces.

This is the Belgian session beer I didn't know I was waiting for. The nose has nutty, toasty malts with a balanced his of herbal, peppery spice that could be hops, yeast, or both. The body is thin and the finish is dry, but with a satisfying bitterness. What a great table beer. There's a bitter grapefruit edge, but this sticks with the dry, pale malts and spicy farmhouse character. I'd buy this by the sixtel.
