Barrel Fermented Ale
Plum 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 plums sourced from Lookout Farm in nearby Natick, Massachusetts lend this rendition of Fated Farmer an enticing nose of wildflower honey and plum, with a hint of lavender. A palate of tart plums is balanced by a crisp, lemony undertone. Appearance is an opaque, slightly hazy straw color.
