light amber-gold with a dusting of medium coarseness white head. Aroma is tart raspberry and cherry, a touch of pickle and a hint of horse and moderate citrus, but not in the hoppy way. Body is medium-medium-light, oily, (surprisingly heavy given the style.) Flavor is that taste that’s leftover in your mouth after you’ve had orange juice, tart cherry, light grass. a short pulse of crisp bitterness electrifies the back/sides of my palate in the finish. Nice. Nothing amazing. I wish I didn’t have a (mild) cold so I could see if I was missing anything... Definitely on the tart side. The wine barrels make it reminiscent of something that’s not here... cool! MacBoost (1934) - Victor, New York, USA - APR 12, 2015
2014 vintage. Pours a hazed orange color with a small white head. Aromas of wine and funk, some apple. Taste is semi sweet and lightly sour, some funk. Flavors of tart green apple, wine barrel, some sweaty brett. Finish is semi sweet and gently tart. Decent. mnoud (318) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
2015.03.29 - Allagash Interlude 2014 - on tap at Always Ron's.
No long review. Drinkable but not my cup of tea. If the dominant taste is from the Brett then I may not be a Brett fan.

En fût à la brasserie. Un liquide dorée foncée. Un nez de cidre de glace, de pomme, de pêche au caramel. Le nez est complexe et agréable. La bouche laisse perplexe avec des tanins quelque peu agressant en fin de bouche. Tout de même une très bonne bière. ajnepple (6981) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Backlog. On tap at the Mellow Fellow in Truckee. Orange and clear appearance with a fully diminishing head. Funky yeast, fruity esters, mild tartness and Belgian notes. Medium to full body. Pretty fun to drink.

On tap at threes brewing in Brooklyn. Slightly spicy on the nose. Pours a nice dark Amber. Intensely fruity but also sour with a nice finish. Good. A bit overly fruity.

Bottle from trade - thanks Blazay. Clear burnt amber in the glass, initially a big white head but doesn’t linger. Funky, estery yeast character coming off it - vinous, leathery, fruity - stone fruit, some raisins. Medium to light carbonation. Flavour is lightly tart, a big hum of honey, some oxidisation evident but not unpleasant, tropical fruit, pineapple, passion fruit but only very lightly, a touch of vanilla. A slightly tannic edge from the wood brings everything to a dry finish. The strength is there in the background but just adds to the beer. Complex and delicious SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2015
Corps orangée et son anneau de mousse. Arômes et saveurs de salade fruitée avec des pêches, des fruits du verger, du fût de vin. Parfaite présence en bouche. Beau corps huileux. Finale sèche tannique. Une belle et grande maîtrise. Alengrin (5635) - BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 Strong sour ale with loose, unstable, off-white head and hazy orange colour. Very estery, lightly funky and vinous aroma of lime, redcurrant, sherry, wet hay, tomato, apricot, white wine, leater, tobacco, horseblanket. Very vididly fruity taste, immediately sourish but with sweetness for balance, peach, sour berries, lemon and pineapple suggestions, also lactic acidity (sour cream), smooth caramelly malt basis, bit honeyish, very vinous finish with some warming alcohol, drying acidity and delicious woody tannins, but some glue-like solvents as well. Could have been more complex, but still very good for an American sour ale. gyllenbock (9711) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle bought in SF in February 2014. (vintage 2013)
Hazy amber with a small head. Vinous aroma of fruit, wood, light funk, yeast and red berries. Similar taste. Also oak and light caramel. Well done and nicely dinkable.
