Allagash Brewing Company Nancy

What the brewers say

“Nancy has an aroma of cherries, bread crust, and a touch of cinnamon. The flavor is a medley of tart cherry, citrus, and pie spice. The finish is dry with a lingering tartness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Aroma on this beer is subtle—sweet fruity character with hints of cherry. Slight floral notes with a high funkiness and medium tartness. As it warms, it balances it out.”

Flavor: “Crisp and sour, it’s tart, but not too tart. Strong carbonic bite plus notes of lemon, orange, and even some sharp pineapple flavor. Cherry as it warms. Funky Brett and barnyard-like notes mix with a medium tartness. Just the right amount of carbonation to carry the complex flavors. Slight salty, lime notes after the sip. The tartness hits more in the finish and stays at the top of the tongue.”

Overall: “Good carbonation, good tartness, and funky Brett. High sourness lingers. Cherry is subtle, but very nice. The tartness cuts the sweetness yielding a nice balance of fruit-to-tart that leans toward fruity.”
