COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable.

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.

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.

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.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bennetporter (147) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2015
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.

obguthr (4218) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2015
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.

malrubius (1930) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle from Meditrina. Near black with flat tan head and some lace. Tart red wine and unripe blueberries with mild roasted chocolate. Mild roasted chocolate fruity red wine blueberry tartness with dry roasted woody finish. Medium light. Nice mouthfeel. Excellent.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown pour, tan head. Very Bretty, but not much sour to speak of. Earthy, dry, light plums. Easy drinker.
