Barrel Fermented Wild Ale
Peach Fated Farmer 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.
Fresh peaches sourced from Lookout Farm in Natick, MA, lend this rendition of Fated Farmer a crisp and elegant personality. A light inviting aroma of ripe peach flesh is followed by refreshing, delicate stone fruit flavor with a mild lactic sourness. Mid palate brings a subtle depth reminiscent of a funky farmhouse cheese character from the aged hops. Complementing the clean, bright flavors is a downy, effervescent mouthfeel tied together with tannic structure and soft bitterness.
