Allagash Grand Cru

Lovely hazy orange color, with a good head that leaves great lacing on my tulip glass. The tulip glass funnels the spicy orange (and slight yeast?) aroma nicely to my nose.
The immediate taste hitting my tongue is of a mild fruitiness, mainly orange. The spiciness of the flavor lingers in the back of my throat: cloves mostly, with some other peppery minglings as well.
I really only get a hint of the high-ish alcohol content, which is good. Goes down smooth, but for that little bit of bite.
Overall Rating: 4.5
