Allagash Brewing Company Little Grove: Peach & Kombucha
What the brewers say
Fermented with saison yeast. We add peach during brewing and then blend the beer with a bit of kombucha.
What our panel thought
Aroma of fresh, juicy stone fruit complemented by earthy hops. Flavor is light and pleasant—a bit funky, a bit sour, a bit spicy—with restrained peach and a kombucha edge. Bready malt, crisp balancing bitterness. Light body, effervescent. Dry finish, a bit stark. Tartness lingers.
What our editors thought
Light candied stone fruit on the nose with a light herbal note. The sip is tightly effervescent, sharp-edged like champagne but without the softening sweetness. Party up front (in the nose), business in the rear (on the sip).
