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.

Drank an an Allagash tasting with all the others. Beer is brown with a mild haze but no real head to speak of.
Aroma is mild woody and some lactic sourness but overall it is rather mild.
Not my favorite of the bunch, the pumpkin seeds come through a little but not much. It is an interesting beer though. I'd have it again maybe in the future. Sourness is mild, mostly at the back of hte palate where the finish is dry.

Thanks to jopais for the hookup with this one. 375ml bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear orange color with a white ring of lace holding across the top. Some spots of lace stick to the glass along with thin fingers.
The smells is tart and fruity. Cheese comes to mind along with footy funk and lots of it as it warme up. It has a hint of something along the lines of apple cider and some phenolics like plastic.
The tastes a also a bit reminescent of cider. Some sour fruit esters blend with funky cheese. Across the back it is tropical and earthy. There is a bit ofnresidual sugar and caramel grain inclusion to round things out.
This is a medium bodied brew with a light level of carbonation. It is easy drinking and a unique creation. At no point did I feel like I was drinking a pumpkin ale by any traditional stretch. However, I wouldnt hesitate to have this again. For what it is, I enjoyed it.

Shared by Thorpe429 alongside several other Allagash sour/wild ales. Thank you very much, Mike!
The beer appears orange with a mild haze and a small, fizzy head. The aroma brings wild yeast, tart apples, oak. Nice flavor, though I couldn't pick out any pumpkin or squash character. Lactic finish with mild acidity. A bit of pucker. Fairly light in body and easy to drink. Another tasty wild ale from Allagash.
