4.43/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 7/27/11, bought at Allagash.

Pours a straw yellow color, hardly any head, no lacing at all, second pour produces a thin fizzy white head that fades wicked fast, yeast floaties enter the glass and make it quite hazy when the first pour was very clear.

Smell hits strong with a huge sour funk, good citrus elements, bit of a barnyard funk in the nose.

Taste has a nice sour tartness that tickles the sides of the tongue, a funk starts to work its way in the flavor profile before the sourness regains its foothold in my mouth, moderately soft carbonation, slightly earthy undertones.

3.46/5  rDev -21%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Shared bottle.

Pours a not particularly appealing looking hazy amber.

Aroma: Mild funkiness for style. Less off-putting than some others.

Flavor: Fruity and complex taste starts sweet and sour but turns tart and bitter by the finish. Quite tart mid-taste.

North Carolina

4.61/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a very hazy orange-tinged golden color capped by an inch of foam that fades quickly; plenty of dotty lace is left behind

Smell: Lemon, green apple, leather and barnyard

Taste: Lemon and green apple, up front, rather acetic at the outset; develops funk and softer slightly tropical fruit flavors, in the middle; the finish is dry and leathery; the aftertaste is like a really sour white grapefruit

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation and a nice pucker

Overall: What an excellent beer this is after aging it in my cellar for three years; hits on all the right notes
