BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
FARM TO FACE was brewed as a pale ale and fermented in stainless with our house yeast. After primary fermentation, pediococcus and lactobacillus were added along with 3lbs of peaches per gallon. Ten months later, the finshed beer is bright amber in color with peach, graham cracker and green apple in the aroma. Drinking this medium bodied beer is like biting into a juicy peach with tartness throughout. The finish has a long lasting peachyness.

A: Poured into a tulip to a bright golden orange topped with a finger and a half of dense white head that retains well with decent lacing.
S: Smells of peaches with some light sourness and some light maltyness
T: Taste is some nice and bright acidity with a whole bunch of delicious peach notes. The peach is very authintic tasting and the sourness is just perfect. Swallow is more juicy peach with that lingering bright acidity.
M: This beer is on the lighter side of things as far as the body is concerned but it is not watery. Carbonation is effervescent and perfect for the style with just the slightest bit of pricklyness. The beer has a drying finish which is spot on for the style.
O: Overall this beer is exceptional. Great flavor and does exactly what you expect it to. Definitely one to try and enjoy. I wish I had more of these.

Barely foggy gold-apricot with a medium fizzy white head that settles to a spotty film and fuzzy thin collar.

Smell is both bright and spicy oak and funk with loads of fresh lemon spritzed peach, green apple and a touch of graham crust.

Taste is quite tart green apple in front of the peach with spicy oak and light funk. Acidity gets potent after time.

Very nicely crisp with a moderate body, soft fizz and a semi-dry finish.

This is an excellent, if typical, American sour. Most American sours tend to be a straightforward blend of fruit, wood, and sourness, and this is no exception. Pleasant to drink, but just not quite the complexity you get from a world-class sour beer. Still, a top-notch effort from Allagash, which has one of the best barrel programs going. Recommended.
