Pours a muddled bourgundy color with light fizzy white head. Aroma is leather, tart cherries, and light funk. Reminds me a lot of a thinner Monomoy creek by Cisco. Pretty nice.

Huhzubendah (2266) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Shared by Thorpe429 alongside several other Allagash sour/wild ales. Thank you very much, Mike! The beer is dark brown and hazy with crimson highlights. The nose brings cherries, booze, yeast, funk. Notes of mushrooms and earth. The flavor is a bit odd and jolting. Booze presence is a bit too forward. Tart finish with moderately low carbonation. Overall, this was just OK.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 12.7 oz. An almost clear one, dark golden to amber in body and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is dominated by berry-like sourness, cherries mostly. Some lemony hints and a funky touch. It’s quite effervescent, medium bodied and tart, with flavors of berries, almond notes and some faint notes of burnt rubber I think. Lasting sour and berry-ish finish. Well, a pleasant beer, but lacks on complexity I think, and otherwise quite ordinary. 121109

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
bottle share at hill farmstead’s harvest festival. hazy amber, some floaters, with a decent off-white head and retention. cherries, wood, brett - some funk indeed, yeasty, light acidity, light toastiness and a some sweetness, never cloying. floral and citrusy - light but fairly present hopping. average to soft carbonation, light ot medium body, decent herbal-citrusy and earthy finish. not a big beer, not really a sour, but enjoyed it!
