Orange gold, hazy, tan/white head, really good lacing. Aroma is citrus, sweet malty, little bit herbal weirdness, yeasty. Nicely carbonated and smooth. Sweet taste with sour edges and finish was very dry. Shared with the ATL crew in 4/06 - thanks! chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle at Kobenhavnske Oldage 2007. Pale amber colour. Very tart and acidic, almost in a Belgian Sour style. The wood comes through strongly as do the vinous notes. And, like Mes, I got some cider apple notes too. Also some spicy touches. Unusual but intriguing. But I like it. I think.

Bottle. Deep golden. Quite fruity and hoppy bit spiced aroma. Flavour is fruity and hoppy, alcoholic and yeasty. Bitter alco finish. Holdwine (1237) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 22, 2007
On draft at Max’s. Listed as a Flanders Red. SHould I have expected more color? Light yellow fevered pour. Sprightly fruit throughout. Alcohol well hidden. Pucker up for the pleasant sourness. Nice job and an interesting pedigree. voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2007
2007 bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light citrus, pepper and grassy dry hops. The next wave is a more mature vanilla, yeast, stonefruit, perhaps some cidery notes too, wickedly complex. Brilliant fluffy (yes I know its 9%) medium-bodied mouthful. Big jammy fruitiness in the flavour, not overwhelming, and well complemented by some bretty notes and a light-to-moderate tartness, a perfect balance of fresh herbal hops come though too. Finish is almost crisp, alcohol is not there at all. This blew me away, an outstanding beer.

Bottle. $20 for this one and it was good, but not worth the price. Light, crisp, and refereshing w/ just a touch of brett sourness. Red wine barrel aging slightly evident. Like a lighter version of DFH Red and White w/ mild brett sounress. elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Pours a unfiltered dark yellow color with a fizzy white head. Has some lacing. Has hints of sour fruits, spices. Finishes with a tart taste on the tongue. mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Pours a cloudy, glowing orange with a light white head. Smells lightly sour and acidic. Some orange citrus and other fruits arrive in the air too. Kind of a sweet sour. Tastes kind of jumps at you, sour but more funky than bitter. Fills the palate with a sweet orange acidity. Really refreshing and could drink this beer alot. Another awesome Allagash offering. These guys really know what they are doing. Skinnyviking (9674) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2007

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Bottle @ Københavnske Øldage 2007. Pours a little hazy orange with a thin film head. Aroma has caramel and a distinct sourness. Flavour has half a second of sweetness, then an acidic sourness takes over - actually very poor.
