$30 for the bottle at the Allagash event at Rattle n Hum in NYC.
Smell is fresh oak, must, sour, slight brett funk.
Flavors of tart green grapes. Crusty bread. Musty. Less bourbon barrel flavor and more wine like. I was looking for some deeper fruit flavors here but they never came.
A good non-fruit sour although it is lacking complexity.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Poured in nearly pitch black conditions, but it's an amber body. Clear. Almost no head.
Smell - Bourbon and wine barrels smell great. Bretty. Some acidity. Cherry and caramel malt.
Taste - Very similar to the smell. More caramel. Cherry fruits. Musty brett. Vanilla and oak. Not all that sour, but it's kinda acetic in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe medium heavy. Minimal sourness. Well carbonated.
Overall - Complex barrel character. Reminiscent of a Cascade.
