4.1/5 rDev +4.6%
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.

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.
