Thin for the ABV. madsberg (11775) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
Bottled: Golden coloured. Light hazy. Small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with some spices in the background. Has some citric sournotes. Flavour is quite woody and fruity. Sour again but with some distinct alcoholnotes, that gives warmth to lips and palate. Medium bodied. Has a dry and light spiced fruity and where the sourness is again present. Nice one. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 (750ml bottle, courtesy of Lumpy) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, citrus, and vinous. Flavor of apple, citrus, alcohol, and oak. Does not have the farmhouse qualities that I expect in a Belgian-style. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
(750ml bottle) Courtesy of the brewery and Caitlin. Many thanks! Pours a frothy, white, quick-dissipating head and a very clearbrownish-amber body. Regular carbonation bubbles of large size. Nose of a framboise gueuze, cherry notes and red wine acidic. Flavours are wild and all over - wild yeastiness, Belgian lambic, raisins, sour green grapes, vinegar and a dry, dry finish. Mild alcoholic burn at the end to conclude this interlude. Very, very interesting... and very, very tasty.

Aroma is of yeast, flowers and caramel. Looks a hazy orange/yellow. Notes of alcohol, flowers and what I assume is the oak. Not as pleased with it as what I had hoped, but a very interesting beer. Nice for a walk on the aged side. TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - MAR 14, 2007

Pours a hazy, fiery copper amber with a quickly building fizzy head that almost as quickly recedes to a 3-bubble layer. Aroma is grassy sour like a farmhouse ale with leafy, earthy hops, straw, and a substantial bit of sweet malty goodness. Flavor misses the mark a bit for me with a funky corn-adjunct-like sour-mash flavor that seemed out of place. Other flavors taking their turn were a subdued but prickly hop bitterness, grassy grains, clover, a touch of acetic acid and plenty of candy-sweet malts. Finishes with a full mouthfeel and a dancing, tingly palate. I wasn’t quite as wild about this beer as most other reviewers, but like just about everything else Allagash puts out, it’s a pretty solid hit.
Found this down at Southbay Liquor. 2007 bottle: I knew this was a rare gem to come across so i ponied up the extra loot to grab it now. Creates a murky and opaque glowing orange elixir with minimum amount of heading. The nose is sour and mild and almost smelling like a sun made tea minus the lemon. The drink is very dry and resembling a red wine in flavor. Other notes worth mentioning is that the drink is very tart and sour with green unripe apple and tea.

Bottle @ Copenhagen Øl Festival. Average fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished. Fair lacing. Cloudy orange color. Aroma of citrus, yeast, caramel and very fruity notes. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and light hint of alcoholic texture. Flavor was sweet with some acidic. Acidic sweet finish.

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.
