Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Avance is a product of patience. Aged with strawberries for three years in bourbon barrels, this strong, sour ale has the aroma of strawberry preserves and toasted oak. The oak and berries continue their presence in flavor, and compliment the sweet, warm finish.

draft at tasty in raleigh.

dark brownish red color with a very slight head. smell of strawberries, tartness. taste is lip puckering sour and tart with a great dryness on the finish. strawberry flavor is slight. hard to believe the ABV. easy drinking. bourbon barrel is slightly apparent.medium bodied and mild carbonation.

overall an impressive sour!
