A Note on This Beer
[On our Sour Scale, this beer ranks a 3 out of 5: Pleasantly Puckering]
Take a peek at my beer calendar and you’ll probably wonder why I marked today’s date with that infamous peach emoji.
That’s because I’ve been anxiously counting down the days until the return of one of the highest-rated Sours in Tavour history: the 4.55 member-rated Farm to Face Sour Ale from the GABF medalists at Maine’s Allagash.
Peach fiends around the country are keen on this bottle of liquified peach pie, calling the 2019 Vintage a “near-perfect balance of fruit, sour, and effervescence.”
To achieve the most flavor-packed refreshment levels possible, the brewers stuffed an astounding 9,000lbs of locally-grown Maine peaches, picked at the peak of sun-soaked ripeness, into the batch.
The result is a brew that brims with such succulent layers of drippy, ripe stonefruit, it earns a spot as one of the Top 50 American Wild Ales in the World on BeerAdvocate! And with hints of a crumbly, graham cracker crust, you may as well serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. *A la mode.*
But you better act fast if you want to taste this monstrously rated, mouth-watering treat before our members snatch it all up. Because we managed to snag just under 15 cases of this peach-soaked sipper, and it’s a long time until peach season comes back around.
