Pours murky, orangy-gold, with a quick falling white head of various sized bubbles.
Tart, fruity, funky and musty in the nose.
Oh, yea- say hello to my little friend- Brett.
Coriander, cloves, strawberries, laced with hay spritzed with orange oils.
Aromatics peel apart like a belgian onion.
Medium body, carbonation on the lower side for an Allagash, creamy and crisp.
Pallet is loaded with tart fruits and a woody dryness.
Bitterness lends a complimentary quenching quality alongside the mildly puckering esters.
Pallet continues drying, crisp, and spicy.
Quite grassy and earthy, and bold but not out of balance.
Finishes dry, refreshing and organic.
Buckets of karma go out to Delirium on this one.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Dated October 2013. Cork hit the ceiling, but no gushing.
A: Amber/rose-colored body with good clarity. Scant white head that rapidly disappears. Light lacing.
S: Light brett with vinous quality. Grapes and more subdued stone fruit. Mild earth.
T: Tart initially with a dry, even-handed Brett character shortly thereafter. There is the presence of red wine and associated tannins. Mostly dry finish. Lightly hopped. Alcohol presence is average for the ABV. Tartness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Open on the palate.
O: Solid brew, if a bit less impressive than expected. Probably should have sat on this one a bit longer. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, but fans of wine barrel aging and brettanomyces will enjoy this.
