Allagash Four aged in oak barrels with strawberries.

Alengrin (243) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
An experimental twist on the Allagash Four barley wine, matured on oak and macerated with strawberries. Stable, off-white head, misty bronze colour, aroma very much dominated by strawberries - not my favorite scent and therefore not quite to my liking, notes of wood, banana, marzipan, medium dry sherry, sour cream, cognac, passion fruit. Complex taste with an interesting game between sweet and sour, as in an ’oud bruin’, fruity yeast, strawberries coming through but less strongly than I feared, woody and vinous, candi syrup, sourishness wins the game and renders a dry, woody, resinous finish. Interesting and complex, a lot going on here.
