3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared by Thorpe429 alongside several other Allagash sour/wild ales. Thank you very much, Mike!
The beer appears light golden colored with a thin, wispy head that leaves faint traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings some nice funk, along with earth, grass, hay, straw, outdoors, mineral water. Smells very enticing - nicely done. The flavor is clean and refreshing, with a subtle and elegant lactic presence followed by a mildly acetic finish. Not on par with the elite gueuzes from Belgium, but a very nice beer, and undoubtedly one of the better attempts from an American brewery. Light bodied and easy drinking. Overall, this was solid and enjoyable. I would have this again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
37,5cl bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours hazy yellow with a tiny, white head. Aroma has green apples, unripe pear, dusty funk, slight cheese, not particularly sour aroma, some citrus, floral spices and maybe some coriander, sweet, almost dry peach. Taste is surprisingly sour, dirty dusty, funky, some more peachy sweetness, but it’s style is very authentic belgian lambic style. Very dry finish. Medium carb and light body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 2/22/12 from a corked and caged 375mL bottle with Curtis and Paul. Pours cloudy peach orange with a thin white head that leaves thin, spotty lace. The nose is sour orange, chewable vitamin C, hay and barnyard funk. The flavor is more acidic citrus and orange peel bitterness with nice funk and sour chewable vitamin. The body is medium with just lighter than average carbonation and a long sour and bitter citrus peel finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, thanks to Levi. Pours hazy gold with offwhite head. Huge pop of cork, but liquid didn’t move at all. Aroma of funk, basement, lemon juice, pepper (at the end), vinegar, and old lambic -- this shit actually makes me think Belgian lambic, which is a welcome surprise. Palate: Slick, oily texture. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall: Real nice.

375ml bottle, so many thanks to Chris for breaking this out at the end of our Seahawks NFC Championship game ’tasting’. Creamy yellow. Gorgeous white fruity sour aroma. Rush of sweet sour. Creamy yeast. Tart citrus, lots of lemon juice on finish. Big lovely sour. Best I’ve had in a long time, and a tribute to American brewers starting to get this right.
