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.

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.

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.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2012
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.

Sour cherry is the name of the game here. Full bodied and a big sour flavor. On tap at the brickstore. Rivals some of the more established sours. The finish is a little off but the flavors, body and texture come in nicely.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours amber orange with a little haziness and a decent beige head. The aroma is my favorite part - sweet cherries and wild yeast. The flavor brings nice tart cherry notes that are smooth, not as earthy coming from the steel but still delicious!

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.

Reynolds314 (2224) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 2, 2012
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.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft at the Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours a hazy dark amber/copper color with a one finger frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind. Earthy, funky aroma with good lactic funk, oaky barnyard/musty horse blanket character.  Also a but vinous with dark fruit, musty, funky bugs and earthy oak.  Strong acetic solvent quality appears when it warns.  Smells similar to real lambic. Medium bodied with a strong puckering, sour mouthfeel.  Very tart with strong lactic funk and acetic solvent character.  A bit too stron in the acetone character but has nice sourness and funk along with dry earthy oak and subtle vinous fruit.  Kind of one dimensional with only subtle flavors balancing out the funk and strong solvent presence.

sweet and lightly sour cherries muddled a litlle with mushroom. some alcohol and a touch of turpentine in malt. hop bitterness more pepper like in the mouthfeel. sweetens out after some time.
