3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour from a 2009 bottle is a hazy light amber color with a finger’s worth of white foam.
S: A very nice lactic acid presence combined with a nice must and barnyard funkiness. Some apple, white grapes, and mild citrus round out the nose.
T: The flavor has a nice lemony lactic acidity to go along with a mild but impressive funkiness. The grapes are present in the flavor as well, providing a nice vinous character that works well with the oak.
M: As I previously mentioned the beer has a nice dryness and tannic character which I enjoy in a wild ale. The carbonation level is moderate and works well.
D: A nice offering from Allagash. I found it to be slightly more enjoyable than Confluence and some of their other beers. I’d definitely recommend this one and would have no problem with having it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Tap at Rattle n Hum. Off the bat, I am not a huge fan of this beer. Just not my style. Pours a hazy orange with a soft, white head. Floral nose with hints of barnyard sourness. Flavor is tart and somewhat fruity. Mildly sour. Notes of wood and hard alcohol. Tingly mouthfeel with some puckering. Aftertaste is a little sour but still crisp and a bit refreshing. I try to be objective...
