Lukaduke (2113) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 10, 2012
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.

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.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
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.

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.

On tap at Blind Tiger. More dry than tart in the aroma: slightly vegetal with mild notes of coffee and tart cherries. Mild tartness from the cherries with some soft chocolate malt. Tartness increases as it warms. This got better as it warmed. Mild and simple sour but nonetheless enjoyable.

Purchased at the Allagash brewery in Portland, ME; enjoyed at my hotel room after an awesome Acadia hiking day in Bar Harbor, ME. Bottled November 2011. Appearance is a very cloudy dark gold with a light red hue, very bubbly carbonation that quickly dissipates like soda. Aroma of light cherries, light funk, in all honesty not much else. Taste is good but not very sour. Has a high bubbly carbonation, goes down like seltzer water, very light cherry flavor. It’s not a bad brew, just not high on my radar of other Allagash brews that I’ve had.

keanex (1423) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2012
On tap at Monk’s Cafe.

A: Clear mahogany body with a dense white head.

S: Sour cherries with some sweetness coming through.

T: Mild sour cherries and slight vinegar.

M: Medium bodied with light fizzy carbonation.

O: This is a very mild sour, Allagash knows how to get people into sours.

Cherry soda like fizziness not very tart or sour... Medium bodied lively... Decent but I’ve had so many better allagash sours...
