On-tap at Hopleaf during CCBW.
Pours a cloudy orangish amber with white head. Nice lacing.
Sour vinegar dominates the aroma, but it's not too abrasive.
Upfront taste is sour, vinegar ... very lambic-like to me as I don't notice any fruitiness ... just more of a static, but enjoyable, sourness. Taste follows through to the finish. Sourness fades as the flavor lingers on the palate, presenting some maltyness.
Medium body with moderate carbonation.
Very enjoyable beer, but nothing spectacular. Nice level of sourness that is between boring and mouth puckering. I'd have this again if it was available and I was in the mood for a sour, but wouldn't seek it out.
EDIT ... after reading a few other reviews I'm starting to wonder if the keg wasn't actually Ghoulschip or if I was served something else ... take my notes with a grain of salt as there was no pumpkin fruitiness, toasted malt or malty molasses sweetness.

It pours cloudy orange with quickly dissipating white head. The nose is pumpkin, tart apricot, squash, earth, wood, light vanilla, coconut and faint sulfur. The taste is tart apricot, tangerine, white grape, sour pumpkin, saltiness, mild acidity, wood, earth, faint mustiness, subtle vanilla and touch of alcohol warmth with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine, carbonation. Pretty smooth, mellow, good depth of flavor and very drinkable.

Served from a 375ml bottle into a Crooked Stave Tulip. September 2011 bottle date.
Appearance- Hazy brownish/amber with zero head, but some decent lacing.
Smell- Molasses, squash of some sort probably pumpkin, bretty funk, some lemon and mild oak.
Taste- Orange/lemon, molasses and honey, light pumpkin-like flavor, brett-style funk.
Mouthfeel- Medium carbonated, medium tartness, sweeter and not dry.
Overall- This is so good. It's a new permawant. Might even be my new favorite Allagash.
