Allagash FARM TO FACE

farmtoface.jpg
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

 

Final Rating: 4.51/5
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into an Allagash tulip glass. Thank you Steve (Big Julius) for getting me this!

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange body with a fizzy white head that reduces fairly quickly to leave spotty lacing and some retention.

The acidity on the aroma is very potent – a punch of sourness, lactic tartness, giving way to light fruity notes, some hay, funk. On the tongue it’s pretty sour, delicious tart peaches, oranges, some lemony tartness, finishing with a light oakyness and funk. Mouthfeel is pretty dry but not astringent, medium-high carbonation with a very refreshing, easy drinking body.

What a great beer, I just wish there was more! Very complex and flavorful.
