Reviewed form my notes. This was a one time only keg tapped as part of Novare Res' Allagash-aganza. The beer has a translucent red color. There was a white foam head about two fingers in thickness. No rising carbonation was visible. Good, even lacing was left behind after I swirled my chalice around. This beer doesn't resemble a brown ale at all. The aroma wasn't too strong, just some mild cherry and musty yeast. No brett-like smells. Right away the beer tastes tart. It's a little sweet and dry. The cherry flavor is like that of real cherries, not the "cherry flavor" many products advertise. There is a touch of sour in the finish. It's very tasty, and again, tastes nothing like brown ales I am familiar with. It has a medium body and low carbonation. There is a slight coat left behind and some stickiness. This is pretty drinkable. My chalice holds a large pour, and that will be enough for me. Once this is aged a bit longer, I think it will really shine.

Serving type: on-tap
