3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capone’s. Pours out a cloudy slightly orange hued golden color with tiny wisps of a head. Aroma is of citrus, with some yeasty brett notes here and there. Taste is interesting some citrus notes with spice, tartness and a slight dusty, earthy note in there too, very interesting and yet again well done by Allagash, I’ll definitely have to pickup a few bottles.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of Brett, citrus, fruit, and dry yeast. Poured gold in color with a big, creamy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Lightly hazy. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly sour. Tastes of Brett, dry yeast, citrus, and some other beer I cannot identify. Medium body. Slick texture. Average carbonation. Sweet yeasty finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m always a fan of Allagash’s Brett secondary fermentation ales. This one is interesting and different from the others, with a citric nose and a heavy peppery bite. Cloudy gold, no head, no lace, and a surprising, long peppery bite to the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Draft at EBF. Pours a pale golden body with an off white head. Brett dry and fruity notes. Some light spices and citrus hop character. Crisp and mildly tart with lemon and tropical fruits. Good brew. 3.8
Minimal notes this time, tastes like a yeast beer, really spicy and delicious. 4.1
overall = 4.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 In short: A fanstatic wild/bretty and refreshing Belgian blonde ale.
How: Bottle 750ml, many times, from very fresh to 2 years of age
The look: Almost Clear blonde body topped by a large off-white head
In long: The nose is nicely bretty with pineapples a lemons. Doughy and fluffy body with flavours of pineapples, bananas, mangos and such. A lot of coriander sensation although I think the beer is not spiced. Some leafy hops that provide a juicy flower petals flavor without much bitterness. Light lemony tartness. Funk level is medium to medium-high. Wheat sensation, like I was drinking a funky witbier. The body is full and beer is nourishing yet it remains very refreshing. Currently classified in ratebeer Sour/Wild category but please not that there is no sourness to be found here, this beer is wild but not sour. Again, if I had to describe its taste in a few words I’d say it tastes like a full bodied bretty Witbier. Some sour beer lovers might be disappointed by this beer because it is classified in the same category as the sour ales but I was disappointed. I once rented Shaving Ryan’s Privates that was wrongly classified in the war movies section. I thought it was great and with a lot of action.
