3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft from an Allagash event at Sam’s Quik Shop. Pour is dark brown with a modest dark beige head. Nose shows tart blueberries and chocolate malts. Hint of roast and blackberries as well. Taste blends tart, sweet, and dry well. Not overly complex, but much more refreshing than some wild ales, especially dark ones at 7.5%. Tasty.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is a pleasant funk, mildly sour, fruity. Flavor is pure band-aid. Really enjoyed the aroma, but not so much the flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2105 ed. Post Sweetwater bottle pop. Unfortunately, and I should have known better but this could use some serious time to develop. Not sour, but lightly fruity brett, kind of earthy/woody and hints towards funk, and slight cocoa. Everything here is a bit muted and needs some time.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A disappointing effort from Allagash, I think the least favorite thing I’ve had from them. Not bad, drinkable for sure, but in no way great. It needs to be either more sour, more funky or more malty, it just left me feeling like the beer was sort of aimless, not really integrated, but packaged really well to make it expensive.

Great sour cherry nose but subtle. Pours dark with good sized head. Starts with a fruit cherry sour but ends with a dry smokey flavor.

A unique sour belgium ale. Sour starts with a dry fruity and smokey finish. Smells like cherries. Had a bottle at feezors

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark coffee color with a medium khaki head with a slight blue tinge. Aroma is of soil, maybe burnt jam. Flavor is extremely complex, licorice, leather, a slight smoky quality, cherries. A nice sour finish, with lingering smoke notes but not overpowering. Very good beer.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Currant, red grape, oak, and funk nose, equal proportions. Maroonish brown, clear, huge tan head, good lacing. Not at all tart like I expected. Briney oak and twigs. Root vegetable finish, beets are discernible. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. This is pretty awful. There’s no way that this is what the brewer intended.

Bottle. Brown syrup color. Funky brett aroma with dark fruit and grains. The taste adds a bitter tartness at first then cherries and light cocoa. Prickly carb with a lightly sweet finish. Very good.
