375mL thanks to LtDan. Pouring at RBSG Grand Tasting LA. Pours a full haze orange. Acid cut. Caramel nose with sweet, cherry pit and cherry pie. Rich with ripe phenols/tannins. Taste is tangy, sharp, just a tad medicinal. Very light lemon pulp, citric sourness. Palate is bubbly, seltzer. Pretty good still.

12.7oz bottle picked up at the brewery in Portland, ME. Bottled in November 2011. Pours a murky, orange-amber colored body with a thin, fizzy, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is dry brett and dusty funk with a moderate cherry tartness. The cherries give off just a slight sweetness as well. A very light biscuit malt behind the funk and cherries with some acidity and earth. Flavor is similar. Dry brett, dusty yeast funk, and a slight earthiness up front before some cherries come in with a moderate tartness and a touch of sweetness. Again, a very light biscuity malt backing comes in towards the end with some acidity and a bit of a floral fruitiness. Finishes very dry and bretty with lots of dusty funk and a moderate cherry tartness. Some earthiness as well before leaving a medium length aftertaste and a slight alcohol warmth. Light body and a somewhat fizzy carbonation. Overall, I was expecting more, but this wasn’t bad. Not overly complex IMO with more dusty funk and dry brett than cherry tartness. A slight malt note behind everything with a light body and a nice dryness. Glad to have tried.

Go Allagash. Excellent sour/wild ale almost on par with Russian River Supplication. On tap at TnD. Cherry, funk, basement. Strong sour flavor and mild/moderate sweetness. Lively, crisp body. A bit of unpleasant acidity on the trailing taste is the only flaw in my opinion. Very nice.

This beer was shared by muskabeatz, thanks Evan! This beer pours a light bodied cherry red in color, looking very similar to Founders Cerise. The nose is nice and tart. It is full of spicy cherry. It’s intriguing. The flavors instantly stimulate your palate. It features mellow cherry with a nice tartness. It also has a yeasty mustiness to it that is different. It’s almost like a musty Kriek. It drinks light and slightly tart with nice cherry characteristics. I like it. The nose brings me back in every time. Overall this is a nice sour. If this were available I would make sure to snag at least a few bottles.

Bottle share with my buddy Blake and his wife Gina (both sour heads). Pours a nice light brown/reddish color with very minimal head. Good carbonation shown with the pop of the top. Aroma is slightly funky with hints of a good sour time. Flavor isn’t super tart or funky but somewhere in the middle. Not a bad showing here.

Sampled at the mekong beers gone wild tasting. Pretty much what you would expect. Tart aroma and flavor and just a pleasant blend of cherry. Not fake. Not merichino. Just wonderfully balanced.

On draft at Monk’s Cafe. The pour was orange-ruby colored (much lighter than anything brown) with a nice initial head that thinned quickly. The aroma was tart cherries, some bret. The flavor followed, tart was tame but present, finishing each sip with a little zing. Dusty aftertaste. The mouthfeel was light, moderate carbonation. A nice sour if you like the drinkable ones vs. those that give you the: puckerup and pretend you enjoy the whole glass even though the hair stands up all over your body for up to an hour afterwards.
