look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
On-tap at Publick House. 12oz serving into a chalice.
A- Slightly hazy yellowish golden with about a quarter finger of foamy white head that has minimal bubbles but nice retention that leaves spotty lacing. Not too much carbonation.
S- Slightly tart lemon with spices, some citrus hops, and a bit of earthiness. Not too tart and definitely more spices then your average wild. About average to slightly above average aroma strength.
T- Lightly tart lemon, spices, some light hops, finishes with a weird aftertaste that almost resembles a slightly tart Belgian Triple with a slight artificial almost plastic taste. I did not care for the finish on this beer at all.
M- Fairly light, pretty much no alcohol burn which makes it fairly easy to drink, the light tartness is felt more on the tongue with a tingling effect more then in the taste or smell.
O- I wasn't overly impressed with this beer. I guess being a wild from Allagash and being highly recommended from the bar tender I was expecting a lot more. To me the beer felt like a slightly lemony Triple that they tried to sour a little bit. There wasn't much tartness and the tartness that was there I felt just didn't fit in the beer very well. I probably wouldn't order this again, but I could maybe see how some people might like it.

This beer is between gold and straw in color, with a haze similar to a hefeweizen. The aroma is a tropical fruit and peppery spice. There is a passion fruit flavor with a subtle brett flavor of old socks (but old socks that taste good). I have definitely had several beers where the brett is a little overpowering, but this beer had a nice blend of fruity notes from the yeast and sweetness from the malt that works well with the brett. I really enjoyed it because all the flavors work really well together.
