Go Allagash. Excellent sour/wild ale almost on par with Russian River Supplication. On tap at TnD. Cherry, funk, basement. Strong sour flavor and mild/moderate sweetness. Lively, crisp body. A bit of unpleasant acidity on the trailing taste is the only flaw in my opinion. Very nice. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2012

This beer pours a light bodied cherry red in color, looking very similar to Founders Cerise. The nose is nice and tart. It is full of spicy cherry. It’s intriguing. The flavors instantly stimulate your palate. It features mellow cherry with a nice tartness. It also has a yeasty mustiness to it that is different. It’s almost like a musty Kriek. It drinks light and slightly tart with nice cherry characteristics. I like it. The nose brings me back in every time. Overall this is a nice sour. If this were available I would make sure to snag at least a few bottles. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle share with my buddy Blake and his wife Gina (both sour heads). Pours a nice light brown/reddish color with very minimal head. Good carbonation shown with the pop of the top. Aroma is slightly funky with hints of a good sour time. Flavor isn’t super tart or funky but somewhere in the middle. Not a bad showing here. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Sampled at the mekong beers gone wild tasting. Pretty much what you would expect. Tart aroma and flavor and just a pleasant blend of cherry. Not fake. Not merichino. Just wonderfully balanced.

On draft at Monk’s Cafe. The pour was orange-ruby colored (much lighter than anything brown) with a nice initial head that thinned quickly. The aroma was tart cherries, some bret. The flavor followed, tart was tame but present, finishing each sip with a little zing. Dusty aftertaste. The mouthfeel was light, moderate carbonation. A nice sour if you like the drinkable ones vs. those that give you the: puckerup and pretend you enjoy the whole glass even though the hair stands up all over your body for up to an hour afterwards. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On draft at Barcade. Pours a cloudy reddish amber. Aroma is sour cherries with a little wild yeast funk. Taste is tart cherries, sweet malt, with a little funk. mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Beautiful copper color and a thin white head. Nice cherry/funk aroma and that perfect sour hit to the palate. Pair this with mussels (or cook the mussels in the beer)... Perfection. Once again, Allagash nails a sour ale. LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012

Appearance: Pours a bright copper with absolutely no head.
Aroma: Classic kriek. Cherry pie, funk. Swimming pool.
Taste: Sharp cheesy yeast, tart cherry, ever so slightky toasted malt. Alcohol well masked.
Mouthfeel: Thin side of medium. High carbonation. Puckering.
Overall: This was tasty, and not alcoholic at all for being 8%. I think I liked this better than the two cherry Coolships.
Bottle from hbmason...thanks Tim! - Pours rosy amber with lots of cascading bubbles up to a thin foamy light tan head. Nice tart cherry nose, SweetTarts, metal, light dry malt, funky Bretty yeast with just a hint of plastic. Taste has a bit more plastic, with a dry, bitter tart malt, muted dry cherries, a bit of mineral, and a long bitter finish. Lots of carbonation, and really puckering. A little too bitter for my tastes, but this was still worth a drink.
