Tap at the Blind Tiger. Very stinky, acetic acid. Celery, basil, licorice. Thick body, tiny carbonation, mild acidity. Pretty dull and one dimensional.

Tap. Pours hazy amber with average, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is sour fruit, cereal and cookie malt, floral hops, and light oak. Flavor is balanced malt and sour fruit esters with faint hops; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Red copper, oily white head, thin ring. Meaty nose, spicy grains with tangerine tannin sweetness, bit vegetal.. SNR2010 without the oxidation and less candi. Oaky Flavor shows the red fruit up front, candi mid, thin baking soda bitterness end, hints of pith and rind but overbearing barrel and sugar qualities.

Bottle via some Cates @ DSM LOL 1st edition 06/13/13



Pours a bright orang with a small wispy lil head.

The aroma is tart cherry, generally pretty fruity with some orange rind and some barnyardy funk. The beer has sort of a woody character, even thought it seems as though it was not aged in woooooooood.

The flavor is nicely sour, very tart, and full of tart cherry flavor. Itís earthy, never crosses over into vinegary sourness and has some nice almost musty character to it.

Thanks Lenin.

PhillyCraft (2850) - 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.

On draft at Monkís 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.

375 ml bottle poured into a teku glass. Pours a clear ruby with a beige head of foam. The aroma was tart cherries and brown sugar. Tastes sour with some malty sweetness lingering in the background. Medium carbonation.

madvike (2583) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle from hbmason...thanks Tim! - Pours rosy amber with lots of cascading bubbles up to a thin foamy light tan head. Nice tart cherry nose, SweetTarts, metal, light dry malt, funky Bretty yeast with just a hint of plastic. Taste has a bit more plastic, with a dry, bitter tart malt, muted dry cherries, a bit of mineral, and a long bitter finish. Lots of carbonation, and really puckering. A little too bitter for my tastes, but this was still worth a drink.

JulienHuxley (2516) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2013
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.
