Beer is a wonderful pink-red glow with little to no translucence. A big sniff pulls a strong scent of sharp and sour cherry. The taste is magnificent. Strong and sweet comstock cherries with outlandish funk that finishes with a strong, puckering sour that dries out the mouth and polishes out the flavor. The sour finish recedes into an oaky depth that rounds out the drinking experience. Sweet cherry to extreme funk to puckering sour, supported by barrel finish. A professionally crafted beer. Beer has strong carbonation, and the sourness creates a dry finish that dares you not to take another sip. Allagash is really flexing their muscles here. A nearly perfect American version of a Belgian specialty.
