Allagash Brewing Company Century Ale

What the brewers say

“Aromas of toasted crackers, passion fruit, citrus. The flavor has notes of biscuit and fruit followed by a dry, slightly tart finish. Fermented with both saison yeast and Brettanomyces. Dry-hopped with German and American experimental hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Heavy funk in your face, but a good mix of pineapple, peach, and hay. Light spice and subtle sweetness. Ripe pineapple, juicy mango, and peach stone-fruit Brett funk. White wine and white pepper.”

Flavor: “Prominent tartness, verging on sour, but moderate initial sweetness maintains the balance. The funkiness carries all the way through, like a P Funk megamix, with rustic barnyard flavors and more tropical pineapple and mango. Good carbonation keeps it light on the tongue. Nice earthy funk.”

Overall: “An unapologetic funky beer that gives you the entire showcase of Brett flavors on top of a well-crafted base. Great balance of citrus and stone-fruit character and light Brett funk. Good juicy notes and nice carbonation with good acidity and funk. This defines what a tart funky saison should be to me.”
