4.54/5 rDev +15.8%
Had this beer on tap at the greatest craft bar in Maryland of Always Ron's in Hagerstown Maryland.
Very pale like a witbier with billowing head. Has a little funky/barnyard smell but overall the scents are subtle. It has a very well balanced taste profile. You get a touch of sour, some funk, a little sweetness, a little booziness and finishes with a slight hop bitterness. Overall its an easy drinking 9% brew and has alot going on. It didn't quite give me the WOW factor but its definitely at that level just on the cusp of a world class brew but not quite there. Allagash makes another very solid / outstanding beer.

3.55/5 rDev -9.4%
On-tap at beer pairing dinner, reviewed from notes.
Apearance - slightly hazy, golden yellow color. Half inch of fluffy white head.
Aroma - strong white grape aroma, a little grassy. Breadiness and yeast character takes a back seat - this serving, the grape was dominant.
Taste - followed the aroma. Very grape forward, very sweet, almost candy-like.
Mouthfeel - medium-bodied, very drying on the finish.
Overall, I felt the grape was far too prominent and the beer was far too sweet. This combination just didn't work well for my tastes. It is well-made, but not one I have to have.
