On draft at Max’s. Listed as a Flanders Red. SHould I have expected more color? Light yellow fevered pour. Sprightly fruit throughout. Alcohol well hidden. Pucker up for the pleasant sourness. Nice job and an interesting pedigree.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2007 bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light citrus, pepper and grassy dry hops. The next wave is a more mature vanilla, yeast, stonefruit, perhaps some cidery notes too, wickedly complex. Brilliant fluffy (yes I know its 9%) medium-bodied mouthful. Big jammy fruitiness in the flavour, not overwhelming, and well complemented by some bretty notes and a light-to-moderate tartness, a perfect balance of fresh herbal hops come though too. Finish is almost crisp, alcohol is not there at all. This blew me away, an outstanding beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy, glowing orange with a light white head. Smells lightly sour and acidic. Some orange citrus and other fruits arrive in the air too. Kind of a sweet sour. Tastes kind of jumps at you, sour but more funky than bitter. Fills the palate with a sweet orange acidity. Really refreshing and could drink this beer alot. Another awesome Allagash offering. These guys really know what they are doing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2006 bottle. The aroma is really just full of overwhelming oak. Hell, the flavor is also for that matter. The brett tart/acidicness made me kringe with every drink. Very difficult to swallow. Dry finish. I really didn’t enjoy this as much as I wished for the price.
