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.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at Maxís. 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. Iím 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.

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 @ Arminís 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.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours mid amber with notes of earth right on the nose. The earth continues on the palate and drives into some of the sweet fruit notes that show during the long finish. High ABV but well rounded.

ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2011
On tap at American Craft in Brookline. Body is a hazy orange hue with some red at the corners. Thin white head that dissolved almost immediately. The nose is subtle and light with some hay, brett and wet vines. The flavor is surprisingly sweet, with a little unripe berries up front, raspberries and blackberries, and a just barely sour barnyard brett on the rear that is loaded with sticky caramel malts. The malts are thinned nicely and stay light on the palate. I would love to have seen a little more extreme sour, but this beer was nicely balanced and a pleasure to drink.

on tap at Scion. I thought it was pretty damn good! Pours brown with slight head. A little sweet then a lot of sour. Finishes only slighty sour and fairly quick. Medium body overall. I know, I suck at describing sours, but I enjoyed it!
