At big Seth’s going away party on 11/2/2013; was an awesome day! Taste is sour, heavy acidity, some fruitiness. Taste is acidic sour, big fizzy fruit, sharp sour acidic notes that are pleasant.

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.

dagimp (698) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
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

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.

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
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.

When put up to the nose this one is pretty damn nice. It’s a nice sourness, not over the top, and the cherries come through really nicely. But both the fiance and I agreed that the taste was rather lacking. The really nice sourness and cherries were there but it was just really really light and faded away really fast off the palette. I just kept on drinking and drinking it hoping it would all add up but it didn’t. I really just wanted a bit more from this beer.

On draft at App Vintner. Cloudy orange. Nice sour, tart flavor without being overly so. Great beer.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Beautiful copper color and a thin white head. Nice cherry/funk aroma and that perfect sour hit to the palate. Pair this with mussels (or cook the mussels in the beer)... Perfection. Once again, Allagash nails a sour ale.

kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2012
Pours a red/gold with a quickly-dissipating lacy white head. Smells neutral, slightly fruity. Very mild for a sour, with distinct cherry flavors. More sweet than sour, and extremely clean mouthfeel. This woulda be a great lawn mowing beer, but with much more flavor.
