I'm on a big Allagash kick right now (thank you Interlude). This beer is not what I expected nor does it disappoint.
First glass/pour of the 750ml bottle: Pleasing reddish copper with a khaki head. Great lacing.
Sweet, but slightly tart and faintly sour. Overall, i think a little more tartness for balance would work.
As expected, distinct grape / wine-esque subtlety.
Again, not really what i expected, but i didn't know what to expect from this beer. It's interesting, experimental, and it all works very well together.

Poured into a snifter, on draft at Cork and Cask, Cornelius NC.
I applaud the effort, interesting mess Allagash has made here. Slight head and sticky lacing look good, the brew is the color of tea and smells faintly of bread and grapes. There's the taste of malt and an odd thinness from the grapes. Overall, not something I'd go out of my way for.
Serving type: on-tap
