On-tap 1/4/2015 at Pour Farm in New Bedford, MA, served in an over-sized wine glass.

A: The beer is a very light yellow color, with a large foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains strong citrus, wild Belgian yeast, some spice and some light malts.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of citrus and some mild spices followed by some mild sourness from esters and wild Belgian yeast. The malt character is thin but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly tart.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good sour representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Form 09/06/14 notes. Stopped in Alewife after visiting Transmitter...long The Jeffrey and Fool's Gold so no surprise Alewife is awesome. 12oz pour in a tulip for $8.

Pours a hazy murky deep yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Tons of brett, tropical fruits, yeast, fruity malts, oranges, citrus. Taste has more brett, really great. Medium body and high carbonation. Super easy to drink.

Overall a really good session beer with a ton of brett; another winner from Allagash. Surprised ratings of this aren't higher as it is super easy to drink, refreshing, and has a good amount of brett to it for a low ABV. Not sour which I guess some people wanted byt at 12:30PM on a Saturday it was perfect with lunch. Would love to have it again.
