3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A golden ale with moderate carbonation and no head retention. Soft aroma of fruity bubble gum with 50% more grape sticks! A soft cidery aroma was noticed by the end of the bottle. The flavor is clean and boozy with slightly woody red grape notes and a hint of malt. Smooth. Mild sweetness. Low bitterness. The brett provides a mild tangy quality, but no barnyard which is fine. Overall it’s good, but slightly disappointing given the price tag. It could be a little more robust in aroma and flavor, but it isn’t weak. It does nice things to my throat and tongue and tastes better as I near the end of the bottle. I’d probably like it more, if I had another bottle.

2015.03.29 - Allagash Interlude 2014 - on tap at Always Ron's.
No long review. Drinkable but not my cup of tea. If the dominant taste is from the Brett then I may not be a Brett fan.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
En fût à la brasserie. Un liquide dorée foncée. Un nez de cidre de glace, de pomme, de pêche au caramel. Le nez est complexe et agréable. La bouche laisse perplexe avec des tanins quelque peu agressant en fin de bouche. Tout de même une très bonne bière.

Backlog. On tap at the Mellow Fellow in Truckee. Orange and clear appearance with a fully diminishing head. Funky yeast, fruity esters, mild tartness and Belgian notes. Medium to full body. Pretty fun to drink.

On tap at threes brewing in Brooklyn. Slightly spicy on the nose. Pours a nice dark Amber. Intensely fruity but also sour with a nice finish. Good. A bit overly fruity.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from trade - thanks Blazay. Clear burnt amber in the glass, initially a big white head but doesn’t linger. Funky, estery yeast character coming off it - vinous, leathery, fruity - stone fruit, some raisins. Medium to light carbonation. Flavour is lightly tart, a big hum of honey, some oxidisation evident but not unpleasant, tropical fruit, pineapple, passion fruit but only very lightly, a touch of vanilla. A slightly tannic edge from the wood brings everything to a dry finish. The strength is there in the background but just adds to the beer. Complex and delicious

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corps orangée et son anneau de mousse. Arômes et saveurs de salade fruitée avec des pêches, des fruits du verger, du fût de vin. Parfaite présence en bouche. Beau corps huileux. Finale sèche tannique. Une belle et grande maîtrise.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong sour ale with loose, unstable, off-white head and hazy orange colour. Very estery, lightly funky and vinous aroma of lime, redcurrant, sherry, wet hay, tomato, apricot, white wine, leater, tobacco, horseblanket. Very vididly fruity taste, immediately sourish but with sweetness for balance, peach, sour berries, lemon and pineapple suggestions, also lactic acidity (sour cream), smooth caramelly malt basis, bit honeyish, very vinous finish with some warming alcohol, drying acidity and delicious woody tannins. Very good.

Bottle bought in SF in February 2014. (vintage 2013)
Hazy amber with a small head. Vinous aroma of fruit, wood, light funk, yeast and red berries. Similar taste. Also oak and light caramel. Well done and nicely dinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Sunset Grill, and consumed at the bar. $9.99 for the 750 mL bottle. To tulip, it pours a light carrot orange with which a fluffy white head 2 fingers in length stood.
From notes: tastes and smells of strawberries, champagne yeast, cotton, sweat, pilsner malt, tangelo meat, and young oak. Medium-bodied. A bite of acidity experienced by swallow.
Keep making similar stuff to this, and please do not deviate.

10 ounce sample on tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has some fruity melon hints. Cantaloupe presence. Floral, and somewhat sweet. Interesting and complex aroma. Hazy, orange body with a small, white head. Starts with a slight cheesiness. Light melon hints are present in the middle. Some dry dustiness comes through later. Finishes with a very vinous, dry white wine flavor. Interesting.
