Strange that the reviews are so high for this one... Unsure if I am unfair and my palate just doesn't like these types of wilds but I found the smell to be a turnoff, the taste to be horrible with super sour fruitiness and after taste awful. I wanted to really like it being originally from Maine and normally loving Allagash but I couldn't. Couldn't even drink it but luckily was with a buddy who enjoyed in. Would not buy again

Poured from tap at Allagash Brewery into tulip glass.
Pours a rich burgundy going into mahogany, with a small white head. Smells of sour cherries, green apple, oak. First flavors that hit your tongue are unripe apple, cooking spices, with a sherry finish. There is a little funk here, light barnyard, hay, biscuit and bread flavor. The finish is harsh. Cloying acetic quality burns the back of your throat. This is not a jaw cramping sour but more of a slow heartburn quality. Vomit flavor? Mouthfeel is fine, its certainly not viscous or vinuous. Carbonation is ok. The tour guide said it best when he described when he would have this beer: "I could drink one glass, with a friend, in front of a fire, while discussing Chomsky."

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep orange body. Clear with a small white head.
Smell - Fruity and bretty. Caramel. Acidic.
Taste - Light cherry tardiness, but more of a caramel and brett character. Very bretty, really. Acetic tartness builds in the finish. Sweet.
Mouthfeel - Medium sourness. Medium heavy body.
Overall - A little disappointing. Just not very exciting.
