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.

A - Pours an amber tinted copper color with a merveilleaux finger of dense, tan head. Retention is 5/5, 15 minutes later there is still a nice dense half finger of head covering the entire surface, head reaches the edge of the glass to form a thick ring crawling up all sides of the glass.

S - Tons of great funky tart sour aromas, rich oaky aromas, light chardonnay, yuzu type citrus notes and minimal bready character.

T - Oh wow!! Initially lots of funk/yuzu mixes with dry chardonnay type flavors (chardonnay is very minimal to the other flavors, but very much there). After the sourness begins to subside the fairly sour yuzu flavors linger and run into a wall of light vanilla/oaky boozyness.

M - Totally ideal. Lighter bodied, well carbonated but still leaves a fairly thick feeling on your tongue. Easily my favorite allagash!!

O - Just absolutely phenomenal.
