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.

This one pours a cloudy orange with small amount of head. The nose has a large amount of vegetal qualities with notes of squash and pumpkin flash, and wave of acidity throughout. The taste starts with a significant tartness and mellows into the vegetal qualities. Again, pumpkin flesh comethrough and a touch of fruity sweetness balances things out at the end. The carbonation is high with a moderate body. This is an oddity of a beer and it definitely wins points for originality. Not something that would keep me coming back.
