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.

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.
