4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Festival, Boston): This was, far and above, the beer of the festival. We must’ve gone back for at least 10 of these (mind you, they were 2oz pours)! So incredibly sour with cherry and pomegranate. The sourness just made you crave more with its lip-puckering flavour. Smells of cherry sour sweets. Just couldn’t get enough of this. Really wish it was available to buy!

Bottle. Colour...very light amber with a thin white head. Nose...berry, berry raspberry with acetic notes and some hints of vulcanized rubber ( in a good way). Palate...bright and tangy with raspberry purée and a cassis scented hint. The mid palate is clean and acetic with raspberry sweets and berry jello. The finish is long and tart .

Sampled at EBF. The sours that Allagash have produced are just stellar, and this one is no different. Slightly acidic with a good balance between the fruit flavors and the sour tartness.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2012 Alright now this is awesome. ITs funny how the best beer at a belgian beer tasting is american. Whoops. Ok, intense complex raspberries, oak, vanilla on nose and palate. The perfect balance of sourness added to the mix, really looking forward to this one in a bottle.

Pouring at session one of Belgian Beer Fest in Boston. Pours a hazed amber orange with a medium sized beige head. Raspberries, funk, chewy fruit. Loads of funky raspberry. Gorgeous. Long tart fruit, big acid, funky and tart. Long tart acid finish. Awesome stuff. Went back multiple times for this, beer of the whole weekend.

Sampled at Brewvival 2012. One of the first beers of the day, and definitely one of the best ones there. Clear copper pour with ring of white head. The funky earthy nose was quite good, but the flavor just sent it over the top. Fantastic tart raspberry through and through. perfect amount of acidity. A truly lovely sour.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
GABF 2011 - moderately hazy red pour - very well-integrated raspberry flavor into a base of moderate leather funk and mellow acetic character - middle and finish is all whole raspberry goodness - earthy fruit skin and tartness - nice balance, which is something that seems to be lost in most sours.
