COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Evora is a golden hued beer, brewed with a 2-Row and Maris Otter malt blend. It was hopped with Northern Brewer, Mt Hood and Sorachi Ace hops. The primary fermentation used a classic Belgian yeast strain. The beer was then aged for 16 months in Portuguese Brandy barrels with Brettanomyces. The finished beer exhibits notes of honey and stone fruit in the aroma. Citrus and oak dominate the flavor giving way to hints of bread crust. Evora is medium bodied with a fruity, dry finish.

Bottle from Meditrina. Sourdough funk perfume floral citrus melon aroma. Tropical fruit melon sweetness with mild funky leather tartness and woody citrus finish. Fairly dry. Nice soft carbo. Decent enough. Some of that leathery funk turns me off these days. I am souring a little on sour beers. I prefer a very clean dry fresh brett beer. Nevertheless, very good.

Bottle from the Bodega Slightly hazy deep yellow color with a decent sized long lasting bubbly white head. Initially some sulfur on the nose, but that eventually dissipated. Lemony with tart cherries and wisps of honey maltiness. Heavy vinous notes with bits of cereal grainy flavor. Tannic wood is a bit heavy with some sweet stone fruitiness to partially cover. Not my favorite Allagash wild ale, but decent.

Pours a rich golden color with three fingers of white thick foam. Wet moldy hay, musty basement, dried mango, sercial grapes, orange rind, old wood, cream soda, hot beeswax, bitter dandelion. Overall nice in complexity and unique flavors without straying to far from what you would expect from Allagash.

Thanks Johnny! Hazy yellow golden body with a small white collar. Citrus, brett, funk. Subtle, yet beautiful, brandy character. Honey sweetness with assorted citrus. Earthy with mild tartness. Lovely.

Pouring at Sour’d in September 2014, at Captain Lawrence. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft musky yeast and sweetness on the nose. Sweet wood, booze, caramel and brandy. Medium bodied, sweet and faintly herbal. Grapes and soft acid, tartness. Warm wood and brandy. Caramel, toast, sweet acid.

NikkTwist (3457) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy orange pour with a minimal head. Strong medium citrus flavors. Orange peels and pith. Hints of heavier flavors. Enough hops to balance out the citrus. Feels like a fuzzy juicy fruity citrus sour that gets a bit lost on the woods.

annunz123 (975) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Nice fruity aroma with some candy, bread, and Belgian hops. Taste was fruity, lightly bitter, and somewhat sour. More of a sour ale than anything else. Typically not my cup of tea, but this was a fine beer and obviously really well made.

4.2
craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Draft at ChurchKey. Hazy golden pour, solid frothy white head. Nose and flavor bring unripe apricot, hints of mango, sauvignon blanc, tannic funk, light but present tartness, and boozy sweetness. Lovely combination of stone fruit, Cointreau-like liqueur sweetness, and barrel forward funk, all balancing nicely. Reminiscent of a softer, less aggressive Anchorage Tide and its Takers. Nancy was definitely the showstopper of these two new excellent Allagash sours, but I think Evora is the better beer. Superb as always from this brewery.
