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.

very well better than you could ever think of. BELGIAN, as any Allaggash. Should produce one like this.

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.

Pours a hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma has wonderful tart cherry and funk...very sour cherry and mild sweet cherry. Flavor has awesome sour and sweet cherry. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a nice dry cherry finish. Wow.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2012 Draft at CK, courtesy of Matt from Farmer’s Cabinet, thank you sir! Cloudy yellow color, small white head, solid lacing. Aroma of peach, apricot, sour lemon. Taste is malty, yeasty, with lemon and a soft sourness. Very nice.

Damico (2694) - 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!

Lukaduke (2374) - 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.

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

Cloudy apricot orange pour, fluffy white head. Thanks to LtDan for the share! Good guy. Aroma is sour, some citrus sourness, lemons, sour cherries and unripe stone fruit. Flavor is certainly sour, cherries, yeasty funk, light vinegary notes. Pretty damn nice stuff!!

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.
