Allagash Evora makes a return this weekend

Allagash Evora

Allagash Evora makes a return to the Allagash lineup on January 9th. The beer has been barrel-aging for the past year.

Allagash Evora starts as a Belgian strong dark ale, aged in stainless steel. It then spends the next year again in Portuguese brandy barrels with Brettanomyces yeast.

Evora is a golden hued ale with aromas of tropical fruit, honey, and spice. Citrus, oak, and earthiness dominate the flavor and give way to hints of bread crust. Malty and robust, this medium bodied beer finishes fruity, dry, and slightly tart.

Allagash Evora is a 12.7 ounce offering. Returning to the tap room on Saturday. Distribution to follow shortly after.

Hops: Sorachi Ace, Hallertau, Northern Brewer
Malts: Flaked Oats, Marris Otter
