3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man!! Pour is hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Funk, dusty, citric acid, floral, tangy, dusty, and cat urine in the aroma. Taste is acidic lemon, tangy, wood, yeast, dusty, funky basement, and vanilla with a lingering sour finish. Light body with soft carbonation. Not bad, not bad, at all.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle
Appearance: Pours a bright copper with absolutely no head.
Aroma: Classic kriek. Cherry pie, funk. Swimming pool.
Taste: Sharp cheesy yeast, tart cherry, ever so slightky toasted malt. Alcohol well masked.
Mouthfeel: Thin side of medium. High carbonation. Puckering.
Overall: This was tasty, and not alcoholic at all for being 8%. I think I liked this better than the two cherry Coolships.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours hazy amber/ruby with a small white head which quickly dissipates. Aroma of cherry, funk, vanilla, earth. Taste is moderately sour, cherry, dust, tannins, earth. Palate is soft, somewhat flat, sour finish. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at Novare Res for Gasharoo... Pours a ruby copper color with a three finger fluffy head that laces out fairly quickly. Aromas are very earthy, fresh compost, black tea and a hint of sour cherries. The flavors are very similar with a lot of earthy dusty, mushroom flavors that are brightened up with a touch of the sour cherry acidity and a hint of bitter sweetness on the finish.
