Barrel Fermented Wild Ale
Fated Farmer: Black Muscat & Malbec
Our Fated Farmer Series is a landmark step toward realizing our foundational vision for Trillium: Build a place that intuitively celebrates the intersection of New England farming, agriculture, brewing, and an integrated community experience. The grist of each of the dynamic Fated Farmer wild ales is set on the structure of Valley Malt and is barrel fermented in 500L puncheons with our Native New England Mixed Culture and aged for 5-7 months, before re-fermenting on freshly harvested fruit. The beers in this series are explorations of how natural agriculture can enhance and accentuate our wild ales - as we continue to produce new batches of Fated Farmer we hope to give a recurring showcase to this concept.
Presenting a gorgeous bright ruby red, Fated Farmer Black Muscat & Malbec offers aromas of sparkling Lambrusco, glou-glou, raspberry jam, and blackberry. Medium-bodied with structured, clean acidity, this American Wild Ale finishes dry with a touch of oaky tannins.
