At the Allagash promo recently at the Coppermine Pub in North Arlington, NJ. Into a tulip, poured a golden hue, with one finger of white head, with decent retention. The nose was very impressive; lots of brett yeast, with some sour raspberry and numerous spices, including clove and cinnamon. The flavor was even more impressive; very winey/berry start combined with brett funk, dissolving to a more sour mid-palate, and then finally crisp sugary finish. No hint of the alcohol content. Very interesting flavor progression to say the least. Medium-bodied, spritzy mouthfeel. Excellent refreshing substitute for a lambic or summer ale.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
