On draft at the Reef. Very earthy flavored beer with a high alcohol content. Very hard for me to describe but there was definatly some hay and grass notes. Sort of like a saison.

On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt, surprisingly. I thought this beer was pretty rare. Hazy golden in color with a small white head. Mildly tart Belgian aroma, somewhat acetic, with stone fruits, floral notes, and brett. Bretty and somewhat tart flavor with Belgian yeast, light fruits, lemon/citrus, flowers, and mild funk. Medium body with average carbonation. A solid beer - is this supposed to be sour? Either way I like it.

On tap at Max’s. Hazy tan, thin but consistent lacing in the wispy white head. Nose strikes nice balance between lightly dusty Brett and juicy berry, not as pit as sweet, bursting flesh though bit skin-like in bitterness. Flavor almost works, brett and heavy wheat a bit too dry for the fruit, which emerges only in the lactic finish. A touch dry and skin-like in white grape, bit metallic and too much Brett. Soft carbonation, sticking finish. Warmth shows its flaws, worst is sweetness and moderate plastic. Allagash is better off with regular releases.

375 ml corked bottle got from the brewery on its release. Hazy orange color with huge thick head. Highly carbonated. Excellent lace all the way down. I’m giving it a 4 on appearance. Mildly tart Belgian aroma, with berry, floral notes, and Brett. Pleasant on the nose. Bretty and somewhat tart flavor with Belgian yeast, light fruits, lemon/citrus, flowers, and mild funk. Not REAL sour or tart, the berries give it enough sweetness to balance it out. It does get more sour as it warms. Overall pretty good.

Draft. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and sour, cranberry, cherries, botanicals. Flavor is somewhat sour, sweet, tart cran-lemon. Dry finish. Not bad.

Draft at Rustico, wish I could have had the New Belgium version next to it, but alas the distro networks aren’t quite there yet for VA. Poured a dark golden color, no real head to note. Aroma was a bit sour berries with some mild floral notes. Flavor was tart berries with a huge floral component. The beer was certainly not as sour as I was expecting, but enjoyable none-the-less.

Draft. Hazy orange pour with a fluffy white head. Lemon balm and lactic acid. Tart and dry. Floral. Better than the NB version. Still just not my thing

Reviewing this from notes. Spicy. The herbs/flower oils really do stand out. I thought it’d be more subtle. Good for Allagash for being bold here. Sour-ish but not tart like LBB or Interlude. Smooth. NB yeast (no idea what that means but I wrte it down in my notes -may have been drunk...). Had this in a trio of LBB, Interlude, & Vrienden. This came in 2nd for me, behind LBB.

On tap 4 oz. sample at Pizza Paradiso in Alexandria, VA. Clear, dark amber copper-orange with small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of tart fruit and floral scents. Taste of tart fruits and sweet light fruit in a nice balance. Medium body and medium/low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Armin’s apartment, courtesy of lukaduke. Thanks! Pours a murky, bright orange appearance with a white head. Tangy lemon, tangerine, fairly flora., lightly sweet, tangy aroma. Orange candy, cotton candy, tangy cake, orange fruity, floral, a bit grassy flavor with a tart orange/berry finish. Pretty fun beer.
