I know some frown upon posting beer on Delectable (@Sam Shepard), so it is with some trepidation that I post my first brewski #onhere. This is delightful. Sour blueberry with a namesake of a classic kids’ book (Blueberries for Sal). Extremely well balanced in all respects. Can tell it’s barrel aged in a good way— it’s mellow and subtle. — 3 years ago
Beautiful nose of lemons, white grapefruit, white floral elements, and some black pepper and clove.
Lots of delicious fruits open the palate: apricot, peach, orange peel with a soft hay like maltiness. Nice moderate, citrus fruit acidity carries the mid palate with some lingering mild bitterness reminiscent of citrus pith and clove. Soft carbonation gives a nice fluffy mouthfeel.
Beautiful saison with excellent fruit/spice balance. The delicious flavors, dryness, and mild bitterness make this dangerously drinkable at 6.1%. — 4 years ago
This could be my new favorite American wheat beer. It is crisp and citrusy with the feeling of the Maine coast. I tried it on recommendation at Craft + Carry in Chelsea, NYC — 3 years ago
Nose of banana, bubble gum, orange peel, clove, pepper.
All of the aromas come through on the palate. Nice, dry, spicy finish with firm but not overbearing bitterness. Fantastic mouthfeel. Fine bead with a silky texture.
One of the best if not the best domestic tripels. The balance of fruit, spice, alcohol, and hops is excellent. Hard to believe this stuff is 9%. — 4 years ago
Wow. The “Pick Your Own” is a fantastic sour red from Allagash. Aged for 2 years in oak foudres with an additional three months after adding strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and blueberries. Intense fruit on the nose with great sour notes; the palate echoes these same characteristics combined with a great finish. Probably the best Allagash beer I’ve ever had. — 4 years ago
