Whoa, this is good. Tried it from a bottle shared by OldStyleCubFan, but then had a full pour at Tylerís two weeks later. Pours clear light golden with a lasting white head and nice lacing. Nose of brett and lemon and tons of fruit... more summery/tropical than expected. Not just lemon/citrus. Some bubblegum and apples and funky yeast. Lively palate. Nice and tart but with a dry finish. Reminded me of some Orvals Iíve had, but with a bit heavier palate and fruitier notes. Iím starting to think I might actually pay out close to $20 for a bottle.

Bottle: Pours a straw yellow color with a nice white head. The aroma is yeast, funk, straw and apples. The flavor is sweet, yeast, slight hops, grass, straw, and fruit. Overall, a very smooth and tasty brew.

Bottle shared by oscf. Thanks dude. Second time having this and it was just as good. This tastes similar to the first batch of interlude. As in, much more funky than the others. Fresh hops and tartness from the brett combine very nicely. lemony, bretty finish. Tasty, Iíd like a bottle for the cellar.

I wish this wasnít $17.99 I really do. Outstanding brett, beer experience. The aroma was perfection. The conditioning was spot on - vibrant and drinkable. The freshness of the tartness defines an excellent brett beer. Flavors of hay and grass intermingle wit ha soft sweetness. Wow. World class, if a bit aggressive. Fresh beyond compare (there with bits of floating debris in the billowing head!).

Aroma and initial taste of brett. Light red sour. Excellent pour. Lacing. Wow. The brett is working on this one. Fantastic beer.

Bomber, shared - as a matter of fact the bottle exploded in my face. Pours a clear gold with a wispy white head that didnít stick around for very long. Aroma is sweet, with malt, light fruit, citrus, and that recognizable Allagash yeast. The flavor, however, kicks it up a notch, with light fruit and citrus up front, a nice finish with detectable brett (in addition to the Allagash yeast) and a bit of malt sweetness in there as well. Itís lighter than most of the Allagash beers, but thatís part of what makes it so special.

Canít remember who shared this at the Carolina Crew - I think Todd - but thanks to whoever brought it, as it was a delight. Deep golden pour with a thick head and some intense retention. Fairly sticky and moderately sweet nose suggests another solid entry from Allagash, but the flavor is on another level. Light tropical fruits lead off, but thereís a lovely brett character that emerges quickly to frame the fruit flavors. Itís very clean and less horsey than a lot of beers currently out there, and that really lends itself well to the kind of refreshing, crisp beer Allagash is going for (the pils malts certainly help with the distinctiveness). Really enjoyed this, please make more.
