Ruby amber pour with minimal head. Really nice brett sour from Allagash. Cherry skins, wet wood, toffee, raisins, and balsamic. Nice and tart with a bit of an odd sweetness on the finish. Still very good.

Bottle from a lovely beer and wine store in downtown Boston. 750ml. Snifter. Pours a golden apple juice color with a light haze. Very little to no head and no lacing. Aroma is sour apples, lemon zest, brett yeasts, wine barrel, farmhouse funk. The taste is sour apples and pears, lemon, brett, farmhouse funk, acidic, and green grapes.You get the wine barrel as well. Light body and heavy carbonation. Very dry, sour finish. Awesome beer.

On tap at Ellyn’s Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL., and dispensed to a fluted sampler showing a hazed but bright, golden color, with a frothy white layer, and spidery cling to the lacing. The nose was subtle, but pleasant funk & spice, pear, and light citrus. Light bodied, with nice effervescence, the taste offered some lemony tartness, finishing dryness, and boozy warmth. Very refined, and flavorful!

On tap. Dark yellow pour. Like I’m dehydrated. Aroma is bready and tart. Has a Granny Smith apple juice taste. Taste is Brett lemon pepper sour apples. Realt surprised thought this would be more Belgian. This is mild sour and Brett.

@ Green’s Discount Beverage / Columbia SC --- Appealing clear bourbon color with a head that quickly drops to the rim, no lace. Taste is sour ale that draws on dry red wine in the palate for a unique taste. Sour continues on through a lingering finish. This is not your typical brew - more like a barleywine than a Belgian. Recommended.
