Shared by Thorpe429 alongside several other Allagash sour/wild ales. Thank you very much, Mike!
The beer is light pink with a thin white head. The aroma offers sweet cherries with a touch of yeast and oak. The flavor is cherries, cherry pie, crust. A touch of lemon and vinegar in the finish. mild tartness and acidity in the finish. Subtle lactic presence. Fairly thin and light in body, with alcohol presence well disguised. A decent fruit sour ale, but again, not in the same echelon as the Belgian greats of this ilk.

Bottled 1/23/2012. Picked the bottle up at the brewery on 6-8-13. Poured in a snifter, the beer is a rose-tinged pink coloring, almost like a dark grapefruit juice, with no head. Huge pop when the cork popped on this one, and tart cherry aromas came out in abundance on the pour. Aromas of subtle cherry sweet and rich on a tart and slightly citrusy backbone. Some funky sour highlights in the nose, also. Flavors are very rich, with an almost floral backbone, that deliver a dark roasted quality at the end of the palate, with woody and earthy tones. In between, there is a rich, dark cherry sweetness that starts in a bold blast that slowly subsides as it washes over the palate. This beer is a bit of a rollercoaster for the taste buds. Tart cherry and slightly acidic characteristics slowly build as you drink. The aftertaste is tangy and tart, with a sweet undertone. Dry, slightly effervescent and sour finish. Very tasty!
