About This Beer
This intricately crafted Ale, nearly two years in the making, is a beautiful example of the patience and care that Allagash puts into everything they do.
First, it’s a blend of two different beers — a Belgian-style Dark Sour Ale aged in bourbon barrels, and a Flanders-style Sour Brown Ale. After more than a year of conditioning, the brewers combined them and aged the brew on nearly 5,000 lbs of locally harvested blackberries and cherries for an additional four months.
Every sip floods the palate with puckering tartness, tempered by rounded essences of dark fruit. Let a few drops linger on the taste buds, and you’ll discover towering flavors of ripe cherry and blackberry, backed with nuances of plum, raisin, and date. Towards the finish, a careful observer might detect discrete notes of caramel and toffee.
