boFNjackson (4171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle @ a recent tasting... Poured reddish/brown with a moderate forming off-white head. Sour and tart with a dense cherry character that offered balance and sweetness to tartness. Mild mouthfeel, unobtrusive body that allowed the cherry fruits and sourness to shine along with some malt tones.

hopscotch (9490) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with no head. Fruity, funky, bready nose. Light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Tart, bready, bitter flavor. Finishes tangy, astringent, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Marheb (2297) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
Très pale, bonne effervescence, cerises attaqués par une sauvagerie évidente. En bouche l’acidité est féroce et la complexité en souffre mais une belle bête néanmoins.

emacgee (4137) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2013
On tap at my sick ass Allagash event. Jealous? Should be.... Pours a soft and clean light peach amber with two fingers of creamy eggshell white head. The nose is nice, soft fruits and cherry with a hint of acidity and very slight chalky/vitaminy character. Very very slight wild character. A very nice acidity in the flavor, mostly front of the mouth and it is quick to go. Bright cherry notes in the background, by no means dominant. Some light fruity esters provide support.

Tmoney99 (11063) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour tart fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

DrSilverworm (6937) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Very end bit of a 12.7oz bottle, thanks to Brad. Totally hazy dirty peach color, with all the sediment in there. No head or lace. Very nice tart cherry nose. Light nutty malts, good tart cherry flavor. Light carbonation. Medium body. More dry overall. My sample was very small, but what was there was very enjoyable

b3shine (5820) - Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2013
375 ml bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks solid; light for a brown ale though. A slightly cloudy orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes sweet, sour, and funky with a good mouthfeel. Good stuff!

dagimp (741) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
375ml bottle courtesy of bro-in-law and sis-in-common law. November 2011. Pours a pretty pinkish red hue. Zero head or lacing. Aroma of berries, wine, green grapes and wine vinegar. Mouthfeel is very light and dry but waaaaaayyyyy too carbonated. Berliner Weisse-esque. Taste is lemony with berries, tart cherries, green grapes, faint cinnamon and green apples. A very good sour beer. Could have used some more depth of flavor but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (3431) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle at Franks tasting. Pours slightly clear orange with white lace, light carb. Aromas of heavy cherries, grape skins, funk, and dust. Taste is same with some lemons, acid, dark cherry, oak, and vanilla. Very lingering flavor left in the mouth. Light to medium body. One of the top beers I have had from Allagash. I usually avoid them due to their pricing points but I was glad someone shared this at the tasting. Cheers.
