4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml corked bottle shared by Madvike. Hazy/murky orange-red. Big off-white head, lasts. Mineral cherry pit aroma. Delicate malt background, pleasant cherry flavor, light sour edge very well incorporated. Really natural taste, quite delicious and clean. Tasty, well executed, a medium bodied Kriek that avoids being cloying.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso.
Pours somewhat cloudy with tons of visible carbonation. Color is a pinkish-red with a bit of a copper hue to it. Think head of fizzy pink-tinged bubbles that go away fairly quickly, leaving a thin collar.
The nose has a light fruity presence. Red fruit, to be a bit more specific. As it is served, it is hard to pick out anything specifically. Some lactic character behind that along with a bit of earthy funk.
The flavor is quite nice. It starts out with a hefty hit of fresh, tart raspberries, following that up with some additional acidity. Lactic all the way with some from the fruit. Nothing acetic. Pretty good Brett character. Seems like Brett B and L, though Allagash claims to have a house Brett, so who knows.
Bottle is light with carbonation that is quite lively. Effervescent to say the least. Dry finish, with a moderate level of acidity hanging onto the palate for just a bit, yet it’s not bracing to the point where I feel like I need to rest between sips.
Overall, this is really quite nice and I’m glad that I stopped in for it. The fruit and acidity are extremely well balanced and the beer itself is very drinkable. Highly recommended. Now I need to find a bottle of this.

12.7oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy ruby/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of very light tartness, cherries, some pale and light caramel malts, and some light fruitiness. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A cool beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy copperish pour with no head. Aroma of light vinegar, cherries, kind of on the flemish red side of things, some brett notes. Taste is surprisingly rather sweet than sour, some cough syrup notes, syrupy cherries, light vinegar. Palate is a tad flat and medium bodied. Not bad, but definitely not one of their good ones.
