Red #2, with raspberries. Berries,raisins, and leather with a medium caramel malt aroma. Soft settling carbonation leads to bright berry flavor followed by medium-roast coffee with pleasant acidity.
Saison #5, with ginger and pomegranate. Our spontaneously fermented saison blend aged on Pomegranate and freshly ground ginger. The kick from the ginger is balanced by the deep earthiness of Pomegranate and our native microbes to create a well rounded and unique wild ale.
An iteration on the original dark farmhouse recipe. This used a bigger malt bill resulting in a darker, more full bodied beer. Aged in rye whiskey barrels to impart a slightly smoky character without the booziness. Dark chocolate, roasty, mildly tart with a sweet and balanced finish.
Dark Farmhouse #3, 100% spontaneously fermented dark wild sour. Pours dark and opaque in color with a frothy off-white head. Flavors of dark chocolate, crystal malts, ripe fruit, and roasted coffee from the specialty malts. Combined with an expressive lactic acidity and fruity ester profile from our native micro flora, this makes for a truly unique and full flavored dark sour.
Saison #4, with local wildflower honey, Sapphire dry hopped. One of our spontaneous beers from last year blended with a 2.5 year old saison. The native microflora imparts a unique stone fruit character to our spontaneous beers, while the fermentation process strips away the sweetness from the honey, revealing the subtle flavors from the hills it was made. Juicy, tart, complex, and delicious.
Saison #3, Sterling dry hopped. Exclusively bottled for Healthy Spirits. Saison #3, Sterling dry hopped. A dry, refreshing, old-world style saison that showcases the spice and mild bitterness of Sterling hops. Restrained acidity with a clean finish.
Golden Sour #4, with mango and passion fruit. Tropical fruit opens to a light berry malt aroma with hints of earthy spice. Bright tartness accents the tropical fruit addition and the effervescent bite leads to a sweet balanced malt finish.
Golden Sour #3, with black currants. Our spontaneous Golden Sour base aged on black currants pours a light pink in color. Subtle hints of blackberry and raspberry. The peppery flavor of the black currant is apparent, but not dominant. This leaves room for the base beer and the flavor of the fruit to shine through in equal parts.
