Allagash Farm To Face

I really want to go back to Maine. Every time I have an Allagash beer, I miss going to Slab, which is the best pizza place in all of Maine. While I dream of Slab, let’s see how this beer was.

ABV: 5.7%

Style: American Wild Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Drinking this medium-bodied beer is like biting into a juicy, yet tart, peach. Farm to Face is brewed as a pale ale and then fermented for ten months in stainless tanks with house yeast. After primary fermentation, we add Pediococcus, Lactobacillus, and a whole lot of peaches. In fact, for every gallon of beer we add three pounds of peaches from our friends at Applecrest Farm in New Hampshire. Aromas of green apple and graham cracker accompany a lingering peachy finish.”

Random: I still haven’t tried the drone I got for Christmas.

The brew poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was clear and bright orange with lots of carbonation. The nose had a lot of funk and yeast along with peaches. There was also lightly toasted oak with white wine grapes. The taste had marked tartness with peach and white grapes. It didn’t have as much yeast as the nose, but there was a lot of white vinegar. It also had a lot of fresh apricots. The body was on the lighter side with intense carbonation, but it didn’t go overboard. The finish was lengthy with tartness and peach. A bottle of this was ridiculously expensive at $18.99, which came to $1.12 per ounce. Despite the shocking pricetag, I thought this beer was wonderful. This wasn’t an everyday beer, but I’m so glad that I got to try it.
