Allagash White

Allagash WhiteChilling out again tonight. James Bond on the telly. Bruins recording in the background. Dog passed out on the couch. Wife gorging on chips and hummus. If I had a dollar for every night just like this…

Keeping tonight unique is this Allagash White. My first ever Allagash brew. Somewhat (kinda-sort) local coming out of Maine. I’ve heard great things about this brewery.

I love one main thing about [most] white beers…the smell that immediately comes blasting out of the bottle. This one is no different and I got a shot of banana in the face. Wow…that came out kinda funny sounding. A-w-k-w-a-r-d.

The flavor is pretty damn solid. Dominated by cloves with spices in the background. No banana. Quite often whites smell like banana to me, but end up tasting nothing like it.

Beer goes down fast and leaves you belching. It’s only 5.2% ABV, which certainly lends to the drinkability. High marks for this brew. I can’t believe I almost decided against drinking it tonight!!Brady the Hound Doggy
