Quite a fruity Belgian strong. Strange in both Belgian and strong ways. It’s not a dark fruit but rather berries/strawberries/melon. Fresh fruit, however, which is a relief. Good dark malt balance and I can definitely taste the wine. Fun beer. thepatrickman (1358) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Pour at the brewery. I tried all the beers at 4 breweries the day I had this, and this was by far the best thing I had all day. The flavor is traditional Belgian with the distinctive Allagash brett yeast being highlighted really well. samsmith33 (772) - - NOV 20, 2015
On Tap at blend. Aroma is citrus, orange, yeast. A little wang. Pretty good. .. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Sample glass at Growler Garage, South Burlington, VT.
The appearance was a hazy burnt red color with a quickly dissipating barely there white cap of a head. Bar pour, rating adjust appropriately.
The smell started off with some sweet apples roaming into a sly bitter to semi-sour lemon. Fresh tart green apples slide in for the balance.
The taste was sour with touches of sweet, bitter and tart through the previously mentioned flavors. A semi-sour apple aftertaste leads into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Sour hits on my tongue appropriately.
Overall, I’d say this was a really nice American Wild ale really taking in the sweeter side some AWA’s are afraid to lean towards. Babyboofoo (11) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2015
This is a super impressive beer. Excellent mouth feel and aroma. Flavors really come together nicely. Should age well too.

Free! Taster at the source. Pours reddish orange with an off white head. Aroma is floral, orange, oak. Flavor is caramel, mildly tart, dark cherry, orange peel. Oak in the finish. RickTheRick (949) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
** Bouteille octobre 2014 ** Un joli visuel orangé et voilé se présente à moi et est surmonté d’une mousse mince mais tenace. Des fruits rouges, du funk et un peu de bois constituent le bouquet d’une bière qui promet d’être vineuse en bouche. Et effectivement, c’est le cas. Une légère acidité véhicule les saveurs de vin rouge et un léger sucre résiduel vient balancer tout ça. Tout est en parfaite symbiose et c’est foutrement bon. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Orange pour from draft at Allagash. White head. Gumball and fruits, pear and apple notes. Really tasty. Hides the ABV well. jsnicholas (628) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle (750ml $20): Dated 2014. Cloudy golden color with little white head. Typical funky fruit aroma. Lots of red wine with some sweetness. Tart. onceblind (9700) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Slightly hazy copper with no head. Lovely red starburst aroma with a wee kiss of trippel yeast. The flavor is a bit acidic and boozy. Woody, cherry, red wine, and boozy trippel malts/yeast. Dry throughout.
