3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft from Churchkey in DC, and to be honest, Iím glad I never plopped down the bread for a bottle. Poured bright reddish amber with a thin foamy white head. Nose is wood, grapes skins, wine barrels, and a rather weak-seeming base beer. No real Brett notes and not super funky in any way. I expected something more tart/sour, and this is not that beer. Maybe another taste with different expectations will change my mind. Solid, for sure, but not all that.

2013 bottle. Good stuff here. The Brett adds that fruity pebbles thing. Nice wine like tannins. Good Barrel Character. Really nice beer

750ml bottle, October 2012 vintage. Some sour tartness in the aroma and taste, but not like a true sour or lambic. Good balance between the Brett, malt and sour tang. Medium body, lots of head and lively. Overall, could be a gateway from Belgians to sours.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Some nice orange-like tang and a little bretta. Finishes with light sour and tang, soft carbonation. Pours light cloudy orange with good head and lacing. This rating was unfortunately and unfairly influenced by subtle and insistent repetition of the word Bud Light as I made it. Tap at Churchkey.

2011 bottle from my brother that Iím very excited about! Smells super sour/funky and get a little of the wine. Iím in live with his beer it is by far the best red wine barrel beer Iíve ever had (but only had a few) and top 3 Brett beer Iíve had so far. As always Allagash impresses and is worthy of the outrageous prices of their beers which is a good thing because if it was priced reasonably I would stay sober much less often. This and Curieux are my top two.

Pours an orangey amber with a foamy white head. Stays long. Thick lacing. Nose is tartness: cherries and citrus notes. Taste is balanced tartness and sweet malty undercurrent. Something barnyard comes through in the middle. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very nice sour!

Draft at Maxís. Pours copper. Small head, little lacing. Funky sour, not extremely biting. Lemony. Not a typical sour, has more depth to it. Interesting offering from Allagash.
