4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite a few samples both at EBF NOTB and session 1. Lightly hazy reddish amber in color with a slight pink colored off white head. Aroma of fresh rasberry, lots of brett, some light to moderate funk. Taste was so well balanced with rasberry, mild funk, oak, and some nice brett tartness, and mild red wine and vinegar. The acetic sourness got moderate in the finish, but this was all about balance- just the right amount of fresh rasberry, brett, and acetic acid. This was phenomenal.

Draft at EBF, thanks for BrianK and Vferg telling me i had to try this. This went quickly at all sessions from what i remember. Pours a deep amber body with a thin head. Sour apples with vinous dry notes, lightly woody with some brett. This beer is awesome!

Draft EBF. Fantastic. Thank you Allagash. Great sour character. I got a hint of wine but not much. Sourness struck a great balance between brettiness and acidicness. Great stuff. Multiple pours of this one.
