Barrel Fermented Wild Ale
Fated Farmer: Blueberry 2018
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 Wild Culture and aged for 5-7 months, before refermenting on freshly harvested fruit.
The addition of fresh blueberries sourced from Ward's Berry Farm in nearby Sharon, Massachusetts create a beautiful crimson/purple hue. Aromas of dark cherries, blueberry, and an earthy funk give way to a tart blueberry palate teeming with notes of nutmeg and mulled cranberries.
