Pours dark red-copper, OK white head. Smell is very intense milksour. ( it reminds me of a rodenbach vintage) taste is very sour, dry, elegant raspberry aroma. Intensely sour backbone.

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Couleur cuivrée, col fin blanc. Arôme au bouquet plaisant de framboise offrant un agréable bouquet terreux et un fin rétro boisé. Palais met bien en avant le caractère boisé de chêne, finement épicé avec une tonne de framboise. Petite note lactique qui diffère légèrement, mais assez pour être notée, des versions coolship de Allagash.La framboise est bien restituée et garde son profil terreux finement aigrelet tout en apportant un léger fleuri.

brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle @ home. Hazed reddish amber colored beer with white foam. Deep raspberry aroma and flavor to this. Very pleasant tartness, though a subtle acetic quality to it. Lots of oak, grass, and tannins. A bit of a jammy sweetness to the flavor as well. Slight citrus and some mild wet/damp funk. Maybe a hint of mushroom? Anyway, pretty nice and one of the better Allagash sour beers I’ve had in awhile.

375 c&c from B n B - whatever that meant. Pours dark, clear copper with a slight whitish head. Aroma of raspberries with a definite lactic tang. Med + body. Flavor is raspberry, some lactic, some wood. It’s dry and astringent and very, very berry. Wonderful stuff.
