Tap. Pours clear, light gold wig rising fizzy white head. Aroma is sour fruit, biscuit and cereal malts, straw, floral notes, lemon, light vinegar, and faint grassy notes. Flavor is dry malts forward with some orange peel, grassy and floral hop bitterness, and light sour esters; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. jmm635 (1017) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Honey-gold color with a foamy white head. Aroma of apple and pear juices and light funky Brett. I was actually expecting/wanting more funk. Very dry palate. egajdzis (6833) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2013
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 (3146) - 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.

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!
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. j12601 (13304) - 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.
