Murky golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pineapple, brett, floral hops, citrus, vanilla, and wheat. Taste of citrus, tropical fruits, pineapple, wheat, grassy hops, and a lightly tart, fruity finish.

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours golden orange hazy with a white smaller head. Aroma is the best part, sweeter thank funky, but delicious funk, Brettanomyces and some tropical fruit. Flavor is similar, bringing light funk and light sweet Brett, so smooth with no alcohol for the higher sour ABV. A malty tangy ending with some fruith yeast settling on the tongue.

Draft at the source, the good-morning beer at the Wild Beer Rodeo. Hazy golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma is dusty, peppery haystacks and farmers’ fields. Taste is peppery, dry, dusty straw. Delicious.

ChainGangGuy (4909) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2013
UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 10 ounce pour - $6.00 at Leon’s Full Service in Decatur, Georgia as part of their Allagash Takeover event.

Appearance: Well-hazed, dark golden, honey-hued body with an inch of hefty albeit not quite dense, white foam.

Smell: By and large, GB smells like brett-infused apple juice. sure, a little bready maltiness and a slight perceived "sweetish" hint, yeah, apples and funk.

Taste: Lightly bready malts, lightly sweet. Modest phenolic mentholyptus hint. As with the nose, there’s a clear-cut cider quality here, like a rustic farmhouse cider. Sweaty, musty, with a faint hint of butyric acid. Soft, smooth, near dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Fairly good, quite cidery. Hell, I’ve had ciders that tasted further from apples than this did!

nimbleprop (8597) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Sampled at EBF. Pours a hazy, straw gold with some fizzy, white head. Musty nose, dusty, a little bell pepper, black peppercorns. Flavor is tart but not acetic, grassy, hay, a little pepper. Dry, medium bodied finish. Decent, but far from my favorite Allagash.

3.8
j12601 (12982) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pouring at the Night of the Barrels at Extreme Beer Fest. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet musk, floral notes, a bit of funk. Brett, sweet candy. Soft musk, toast, gentle funk.
