375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Golden copper body. Fleeting head. Large islands of foam remain.

Smell - Musty cherry with some caramel malts. Not very acidic smelling, but it's there.

Taste - Sour. Acetic sourness, but it isn't overpowering. Cherry tartness blends into a caramel malt flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Good flavors, but not a very complex beer.

bottle pour, NYE 2013

Very clear rose body and low carbonation. Aged on an aggressive amount of Michigan cherries for two years. The Allagash yeast strain is pretty premier for a US brewer. The cherries provide a puckering tartness but the fruit flavor seems to have faded in time. Good stuff, but have had better from the allagash LE line
