Color: Hazy gold, almost amber at the core
Smell: Honey, oak, green banana, orange rind, and funk
Taste: Lemon, pine pitch, cherimoya, with hints of golden apple and a melange of dried tropical fruit notes
Overall: Complex and beautiful. I can't help but wonder how this will age. There is a strong head flowing after the pour and this is highly effervesant with beautiful acidity and vibrant fruit and earth-driven flavors. Outstanding!!!! Almost Classic.

Served in an Allagash tumbler. Nose is pretty cheesy and funky. Light acidity. Mild skunk. Quite authentic. Super dry. One of the best American sours. Bit too skunky. This was extremely promising, and I really am looking forward to seeing what Allagash can do with this beer going into the future. I have very high hopes for what batches 10 and beyond could be...

Served with the rest of them. Beer is amber / yellow and mostly clear with a white head, small bubbles, no retention or lacing, looks fine.

Aroma is pure funk, all of it is there horse blanket, pantheon of brett, sours and citrus.

Beer is light and dry quite funky, mildly sour, mostly funky though. It is interesting though, a nice beer for sure. I'd have it again. Simple but good.

375ml bottle: This one pours a hazy, dark golden color. There was a small, fizzy head that didn’t linger long. No lacing either. Interesting nose. Definitely funky! Seems to be sour apple and lemon are the main components. Maybe some wheat, but it’s hard to tell. The taste is definitely a bit sour. Wheat, lemon and apple notes. Not much carbonation at all. There is a smoothness to go along with the tartness. Very Good!

Batch 5/25/11

Pours a hazy golden color...it looks almost creamy.

Smells of green apples, a touch of sweetness and some musty funk.

First taste is tart and funky. It then becomes very oaky and a blast of sour at the end.

It is very dry and acidic. There is a crazy sourness as it goes down, makes my mouth water in a big way!!

I enjoyed this, but I've enjoyed others more. It is a must try, but it probably won't blow you away.
