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.

Had on-tap at at Three Crow Restaurants one year anniversary party in Rockland Me.
Great coloring very good looking beer, smell was fantastic, with a bright big aroma,
Taste very sharp flavors strawberry pulls though the sour with a slight pucker.
Great rare treat one of many by Allagash that night
