3.76/5 rDev -8.5%
Bottle from Bert's
Nice to see some of this stuff finally making its way to NH
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge bubbly white head that persists forever. Aromas of tart grape and blueberry with bits of lemon and an earthy funkiness as well as a hint of aspirin. The flavor is a somewhat tart grape vinous affair. Residual brown sugar with a hint of earthy funk round it out. This one is a bit tame for a wild ale, I see it more like a funky fruity farmhouse myself, but maybe some aging would intensify it a bit.

3.79/5 rDev -7.8%
A: hazy pale gold body with a great big ivory head; some lace left behind
S: grasses and biscuits, wet blankets and wood
T: tart and funky, slightly citric and slightly floral; some herbal notations
M: medium-light body, fuzzy carbonation, clean-finishing
O: not overly impressed - had some wild ale elements, but also saison-like characteristics; Belgian yeasts added a "Belgian" vibe to the ale, but it seemed to be rather middle-of-road - certainly worth trying, but I'm happy to have had one.

From the corked, caged bottle dated October 11, 2013. Served roughly 50 degrees. Sampled on February 28, 2014.
Cloudy pale yellow pour with over-the-top carbonation leading up to a ridiculously huge white head.
Effervescent describes the aroma. That and pineapple, citrus, dough, grass, and cellar mustiness.
Light to medium body with excited carbonation that falls apart on the tongue and creates a modest series of burps.
The taste goes through some character changes beginning with a pineapple and then turning into buttered bread with a touch of spice, and winding down with a tart but dry finish. I will admit it was very enjoyable but it was also very pricey.

A-Pours a very hazy golden color. Akin to a witbier. Head is a thicker growth of airy white fizz. Head it's off quite a bit.
S-Aroma is obviously quite funkified. It also has a sweetness to it. Sourdough bread. Hints of grass and wheat. Barrel character. Bretty.
T-Starts funky and tart and finishes with a pleasant maltiness. The tartness seems almost cheesy. Little bits of grass again. Bread crusts and some yeasty fruit flavors. Hints of oak. The finish is sweet and almost doughy.
M-Body is light. Ample amounts of carbonation. Semidry. Very easy to drink. I could engulf this beer in 4 sips; too bad that'd put me back about $17.
O/D-Always willing to buy Allagash's fancy 375ml sour beers. This one was pretty decent but not up to its price point. I have had better from them in this bottle format.
