3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle. Pours orange/amber with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet, cherry, and just the right amount of funk. A little fizzy, cherry, medium tart, with some woody funk. Real good.

On tap @ Stags Head. Poured a light amber with a medium fluffy white head and excellent lacing. Aroma includes grass, slight Brett funk, oak, and sour cherries. Taste begins with earthiness and funk of yeast followed by well-balanced tart and sweet cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla. Wonderful fizzy carbonation produces a great mouthfeel and flavors linger on the palate long after each sip. Tame, very drinkable sour.
