This one pours a cloudy amber with a light colored head.
The smell has hints of chardonnay and bicuity malt. The taste has fruit flavors (pears, grapes) and hints of a bready malt. It is dry and refreshing for such a big beer. The mouthfeel has noticeable carbonation, and a satisfying finish. Drinkability would be great on a warm summer night or a cool fall day.
Another interesting brew from Allagash. I still use their outstanding Triple as the benchmark, but this one is another example of what you can do with a traditional style. Worth a try for sure.

On draft at Duckworth's in Cornelius, North Cackalacky.
Damn fine beer - looks great in the glass, billowing head and thick creamy lacing. There's just the perfect amount of funk to the nose and taste, wonderful sweet vinegar presence as well as dark ripe fruit - plums come to mind. Creamy mouthfeel. This is an amazing beer that would appeal to most anyone, great entry to sours for the novice and enough complexity for the purist. Wonderful brew.
