Allagash is slated to release a new small batch beer on Saturday. Lieven is,
Named for a Belgian barkeep, Lieven is a blend of Flemish sour red and sour brown ale. The sour brown ale aged for four years in an American oak barrel, while the sour red aged for one year in a New England Distilling rye whiskey barrel. In this blend, aromas of strawberry, apricot, and caramelized sugar share the stage with flavor notes of dried fruit, toasted marshmallow, and a delicate hint of oakiness.
Also on Saturday, Allagash will release the 2017 edition of Cuvée d’Industrial.
