Allagash Merveilleux is an American Wild Ale. This is a blend of five different beers fermented in a mix of both bourbon and wine barrels. Wild yeast strains brettanomyces, pediococcus and lactobacillus were all utilized as well. Well I can’t pronounce it, but it’s French for marvelous and that is indeed what it is. Pours with a surprising dark caramel color and a nice slightly tan head. You can tell you are getting into a wild ale with a very funky and slightly sour nose. The flavor is great, not too funky at this point with a nice bit of tartness, almost sour. There is a good chance the sourness will develop over time if you choose to age it. Getting tons of oak and vanilla from the barrels, although the bourbon and wine element was a bit lost in the mix. It’s like drinking a vanilla and oak sweet tart! This was an awesome and unique drinking experience, I’m really looking forward to see how this ages.
