4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 This wonderful brew was shared with ross. It pours a cloudy orange with a nice lasting white head. Smell is oak and tart fruits. The aroma is very pleasing actually. Taste is mellow funk with some spicy notes comming in before the fruitiness of pears come in. I liked this stuff alot and will buy again if I can find it.

Great beer that exceeded all my expectations. The bret is so strong and pungent it overtakes the beer, but there are lots of complex flavors of green apples and some light spices or nutmeg, smoke, and cinnamon. Great beer that goes down wet and smooth for itís large ABV.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, fiery copper amber with a quickly building fizzy head that almost as quickly recedes to a 3-bubble layer. Aroma is grassy sour like a farmhouse ale with leafy, earthy hops, straw, and a substantial bit of sweet malty goodness. Flavor misses the mark a bit for me with a funky corn-adjunct-like sour-mash flavor that seemed out of place. Other flavors taking their turn were a subdued but prickly hop bitterness, grassy grains, clover, a touch of acetic acid and plenty of candy-sweet malts. Finishes with a full mouthfeel and a dancing, tingly palate. I wasnít quite as wild about this beer as most other reviewers, but like just about everything else Allagash puts out, itís a pretty solid hit.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(750 ml bottle) Opaque orange body with thin off-white head that leaves lace on the glass . Aroma is medium sweet and tart; citrus, vinegar, wine, metallic. Flavor is very tart all the way with fruity, metallic taste, but with the alcohol becoming more apparent on the finish; finishes like a smooth red wine. Oak is present but very subdued and smooth. Medium bodied and slight effervescence. Very excellent.

2007 vintage courtesy Petrucci914. Pours a hazy, deep amber color. Aroma is barnyard funk, with notes of straw, bread dough, oak, vanilla, fantastic. Flavor is balanced and refreshing. The oak really shines through, melding perfectly with the funk. Great bottle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 Pours a great hazy peach color. Aroma is brett, alot of oak and dry red wine. Flavor is really nice: more oak, peaches, red wine, with a great dry, tart finish. Peach skins and cherry skins. Younger bottles show more bready qualities, sourness increases quite a bit with age. This beer tastes alot like Russian River Temptation. Mouthfeel is creamy and lush. Loved it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 vintage. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with not much head. Aroma of hay, oak, funk, and some sweet wine. Taste follows the nose and is nice and tart and sour. This felt more like a sour to me than a Belgian strong, but everyone has different tastes. Medium to light body, crisp, and a smoot yet dry finish to it. Absolutely wonderful beer.

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.
