radarsock (1106) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2015
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Had on tap at the Ale House. $6.50 for the full pint. To tulip, it pours an effervescent light orange with which a trim, white head 1 finger in length stood.
Aromas of horse blanket, cilantro, dried spearmint, sourdough, English noble hops, wool, and some brief citrus/lime meat.
Tastes much the same with the addition of cracked white pepper, sweat, and cherry tomatoes.

A little table sugar experienced by swallow followed by a pleasing crisp dryness alongside hints of coriander and mint.
Easily palatable, but also a fairly typical Allagash wild.
Liked that the abv was so attractively low (4.5% listed on menu)

bennetporter (229) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a hazy dark straw from a tap. Aroma is a blend of piney hops, some slight malt with a hit of sweat sock funk on top. Flavor is kind of the same. Interesting.

boxofrane (2332) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Draft at timothys. Pours hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma has citrus and a little funk. The taste has a light tartness on top of a juicy citrus. Well done

radagast83 (5385) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a semi-clear golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was funky with plenty of tropical fruits! Flavor was about the same, with some light resin notes in the finish. Beer is not balanced (good), as it’s light on the malt backing, providing a light, very hopped beer with a good amount of Brett dusty funk.

kraddel (4464) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Pours rather clear blonde, no real head. Smell is funky. Taste is dry, funky brett, very light mouthfmeel and thus easy drinkable. Some sweetness from the malts has lasted as well. Good beer

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pour on tap at Stout, very hazy golden-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big mango, pineapple, passion fruit into some nice grass, slight bready and biscuity notes with a hint of sweet vanilla, touch of funk. Taste was big tropical fruit, passion fruit being the dominant character into some orange, slight biscuit, bread, touch of earthy funk, finishing slightly tart, slightly dry. Very tasty.

On tap at Novare Res. Decent. Pours light yellow with nice head. Super crisp, notes of tropical fruit, straw and slight funk and sour. Defintely subtle with the Brett. If I had to find fault, somewhat one note and slightly watery- but it is a session after all. I wonder if it gets boring for Allagash being so good all the time..........

malrubius (2014) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 25, 2015
On tap at stone hearth. Bright clear gold with head and lace. Mild, funky, fruity, barnyard hay aroma. Medium sweet tropical fruit with funky dry lemony finish. Lite body just a touch watery. Lingering mild farmhouse funk excellent.

Mep3222 (745) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Nice tart lactic aroma, slight fruity, slight woody. Very nice aroma. Taste is lighter than the aroma suggest. Slight tart, maybe 1 or 2 of 10 sour. Good refreshing light tart beer. Maybe slight watery palate, and slight earthy finish. A very light version of the Nancy to me. Like a session version of the Nancy. The tart aroma reminds me of Nancy, but the tart taste is WAY subdued. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
