BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States
allagash.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is a blend of five different beers fermented in a mix of both bourbon and wine barrels. Brettanomyces, pediococcus and lactobacillus were all utilized to create a myriad of flavors in this unique copper colored beer. The aroma is defined by the presence of the Brett resulting in both a crusty bread and fruit character. The tartness works well with the light oak and distinct citrus flavors, which are followed by a gentle maltiness and dry finish.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Poured in nearly pitch black conditions, but it's an amber body. Clear. Almost no head.

Smell - Bourbon and wine barrels smell great. Bretty. Some acidity. Cherry and caramel malt.

Taste - Very similar to the smell. More caramel. Cherry fruits. Musty brett. Vanilla and oak. Not all that sour, but it's kinda acetic in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe medium heavy. Minimal sourness. Well carbonated.

Overall - Complex barrel character. Reminiscent of a Cascade.
