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. Itís not a bad brew, just not high on my radar of other Allagash brews that Iíve had.

M: Medium bodied with light fizzy carbonation.

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

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.

375ml bottle pours hazy toasted red with small half finger head. Nose still holds lots of nice cherry pie spice, a hint of funk, round toasted crust and some cereal. Taste is medium tartness, round cherry and berry spice, toast, bread crust, a bit chalky. Finishes mostly dry with earthy toast and bits of semi-sweet roud tart cherry. Still tasting really good!

Go Allagash. Excellent sour/wild ale almost on par with Russian River Supplication. On tap at TnD. Cherry, funk, basement. Strong sour flavor and mild/moderate sweetness. Lively, crisp body. A bit of unpleasant acidity on the trailing taste is the only flaw in my opinion. Very nice.

375ml bottle courtesy of bro-in-law and sis-in-common law. November 2011. Pours a pretty pinkish red hue. Zero head or lacing. Aroma of berries, wine, green grapes and wine vinegar. Mouthfeel is very light and dry but waaaaaayyyyy too carbonated. Berliner Weisse-esque. Taste is lemony with berries, tart cherries, green grapes, faint cinnamon and green apples. A very good sour beer. Could have used some more depth of flavor but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
