poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip.

A - Hazy light straw with a white 1 finger head, good retention. Thin ring and nice amounts of webbed lacing on the glass.

S - Belgian yeast clove and fruit aromas, lemon zest. Light cracker malt aromas along with minor pepper/spice.

T - Mild and grassy to start with Belgian yeast and light cracker. Fruit notes of pear and apple mixed with a touch of lemon zest. Finish has some clove and spice.

M - Light bodied, perfect carbonation and a dry finish.

O - A nice representation of a BPA.

Pour is transparent golden amber with a tight off white head. Nose is strong, candied sugar and farmhouse yeast with notes of grain, lemon, and a faint pepper and grassy hop. Taste is also sweet, candied sugars are a little lighter with a touch of grain, candied sugar comes behind with farmhouse yeast, light pepper, lemon and some grassy hops through the finish. Body is light, a hint syrupy, moderate carbonation.

12oz. bottle courtesy of Ineedabeerhere (Thanks Joe!). Served in an Allagash chalice. Pours a dull orange with a slight haze to the clarity and a tight, 3/4 inch bright white head. Nose is a bit subdued - suggestions of the Allagash house yeast strain as well as a hint of tangerine. Taste consistent with nose with a light bitterness at the back. Mouthfeel is light in body with a consistent, even carbonation. Overall, a simple and drinkable BPA - too bad it's brewery only; I'd love to have a log on-tap.
