Pouring at the Saturday afternoon session of EBF. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Caramel, soft acid and hay. Sweet caramel before big acid, a touch nutty and floral. Lingering acid on the finish. Didnít really get any cherry on this.

LtDan (1785) - 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.

This beer was shared by muskabeatz, thanks Evan! This beer pours a light bodied cherry red in color, looking very similar to Founders Cerise. The nose is nice and tart. It is full of spicy cherry. Itís intriguing. The flavors instantly stimulate your palate. It features mellow cherry with a nice tartness. It also has a yeasty mustiness to it that is different. Itís almost like a musty Kriek. It drinks light and slightly tart with nice cherry characteristics. I like it. The nose brings me back in every time. Overall this is a nice sour. If this were available I would make sure to snag at least a few bottles.

A: Clear mahogany body with a dense white head.

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.

Bottle at home, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man!! Pour is hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Funk, dusty, citric acid, floral, tangy, dusty, and cat urine in the aroma. Taste is acidic lemon, tangy, wood, yeast, dusty, funky basement, and vanilla with a lingering sour finish. Light body with soft carbonation. Not bad, not bad, at all.

PhillyCraft (3143) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle at Franks tasting. Pours slightly clear orange with white lace, light carb. Aromas of heavy cherries, grape skins, funk, and dust. Taste is same with some lemons, acid, dark cherry, oak, and vanilla. Very lingering flavor left in the mouth. Light to medium body. One of the top beers I have had from Allagash. I usually avoid them due to their pricing points but I was glad someone shared this at the tasting. Cheers.

375 ml bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks solid; light for a brown ale though. A slightly cloudy orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes sweet, sour, and funky with a good mouthfeel. Good stuff!

Draft at Of Love and Regret, Baltimore. Ruby with brownish tiny; almost rusty colored pour. Medium to fuller bodied pour. Tart cherries, earthy. Not a huge picker but nicely sour and tart. Nice
