First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA

Poured a reddish-copper color, hazy, with a puff of fizzy tan-red head that quickly sank to a persistent ringlet. Aroma of ripe cherries, lactic and acetic, sugary malts. Similar to the nose, nice taste of sugary malts and cherry pie, lactic with slight twinges of acetic acid, with a notable yeastiness in the background. Medium body, smooth and gently carbonated, a bit tart, and some alcohol warmth. A nice beer, and very good for the style.

Serving type: on-tap

375ml bottle received in a trade with hoppymcgee. Thanks Greg! Poured into an Allagash stemmed glass.

A - The cork escapes with a huge pop and wisps of carbon dioxide. Pours a cloudy ruby tinted amber body. Lots of yeasty sediment floats and churns its way throughout the body riding bubbles of carbonation. A finger of thick and fizzy white head that shows surprisingly good staying power.

S - Quite funky on the nose, dirt, mushrooms/fungus, moldy, sour cherries, musty damp basement, a bit nutty.

T - Lightly tart and sour with cherry fruitiness front and center. Nutty, woody, a bit buttery and creamy, earthy. Not much for funk in the flavor. Some mild malt backing things up.

M - Lightish to medium in body with a strong and fizzy carbonation. Nice tart cherry fruitiness complements. Alcohol presence is practically undetectable.

O - Overall another enjoyable wild ale from Allagash. Lots of good fruit presence, interesting wood flavors, mild funk with mid-level tartness. Well integrated and balanced flavor profile. Another winner.
