look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

375ml bottle from the recent batch sent to me by Valdieu2, poured into a Cantillon tulip.

A: Pours a ruby body with a nice light pink head. The head recedes immediately.

S: Sweet raspberry flesh, tart skin, some mouthwatering acidity, a good dose of oak and horsey brett, a little bit of pleasant cheesiness. Potently fruity and funky, very impressive.

T: Puckeringly tart raspberry, slightly acetic, some lactic notes, very dry oak, wet hay, a bit gamey in the finish.

M: Very light-bodied, scouring carbonation, dry.

O: Can't really find any major flaws with this one. The fruit character in this batch is great, as is the balance of acidity and funk. Very promising for Allagash's spontaneous program.

4.11/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled March 20, 2014.

Appearance - Pours a hazy pink. Small white head. Settles quickly to nothing.

Smell - Awesome. Oak. Lemony acidity. Lots of acidic raspberry. Lightly funky.

Taste - Super oaky. Lemon sourness. Raspberry starts tame and gets extremely sour. Even gets a little acetic. Very intense.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Intense sourness makes it less crisp. Well carbonated.

Overall - It's delicious, but I think it's too sour.
